Things are kinda rough for me right now. PT and I broke up, and I’m in the process of moving back to Chicago. I packed up one carload last week and am staying with a friend.
I struggle with how much to share here, on twitter, on facebook. I even struggle with calling good friends to tell them the news, because I hate to be a downer. But here on a KNITTING BLOG it’s like – where is the line?
But at the end of the day, The Sweatshop of Love is me. And I’m sad. I’m sad because I thought I had it figured out, and I don’t. I’m sad because I love Minneapolis and my home there, and now I have to start over again. I’m sad because I went all in, and it just wasn’t meant to be.
So. I’m living on Planet Life Kinda Sucks right now. But I know I’m just visiting. I won’t be here forever. And I’ve visited before! We all visit Planet Life Kinda Sucks. I’m accepting it, and doing the things that you do while visiting Planet Life Kinda Sucks – watching every Julia Roberts movie ever made, eating cookies for breakfast, going to bed at 7:30, laying on the couch watching entire seasons of How I Met Your Mother in a day. See? It’s not that bad. The super suck part is when I have to look for an apartment alone, when I have to pack up everything and drive it back to Chicago alone. Ug.
But I’m going to be fine. I’m going to be fine really soon. 2013! … right?
And just think of all the work I can get done now that I don’t have a pesky boyfriend to take me out! It’s so much easier to work really hard when you are single than it is when you are, say, planning a STUPID wedding, or like, having a STUPID baby. Who needs it?!
