The Long and Short of It

I've been skimpy on the news lately... and a lot has happened lately. Well, one big thing.

Mark and I are breaking up. It isn't meant to be, it seems. And to fend off all sorts of questions--I'm fine. I feel like I'm taking this well. One step at a time, always. Thanks for your concern. ^_^

Of course, breaking up with your boyfriend of almost two years is a big thing, but a bigger thing for me is this: what am I going to do next?

Right now we're living together, but seeing as how the rent is twice my salary, I'll be the one moving out. But where to? And to what end? I've been doing a lot of hard thinking about where I would like my life to lead. Which coast do I want to live on? Where do I want to go to college, to study what, and when? What about employment?

My thinking changes every day, but currently I think I'll stay in San Francisco. Yes, I'm an East Coast girl at heart, but I feel like I'm finally learning my way around. And, at seven months, I've been here longer than anywhere else in a long while. (I did a count: I've had ten addresses in the past two years.) It's a lot of packing and unpacking. For once I'd like to make a home. Not a permanent home, but one that lasts longer than a season. Right now I see myself saving up for grad school here, going to grad school... somewhere, then moving to an East Coast city for my career. Maybe a side trip to Japan to gain more fluency, who knows.

While things are changing completely, it's not the end of the world. In fact, the entire world now stretches out before me. And I'm going to take and enjoy every chance I get. Ima senzaiichiguu na chansu ga aru, kamo.

Gosh, I am SO sorry. I wish you the best of luck. You are a very strong individual, and I am sure you will find your way. East coast has some great grad schools too!
