I seldom write in here anymore, though I'm sure that you've noticed that. I always seem to forget that I even have one of these things. I think my neglect to update can be linked to the fact that I don't have the internet at my apartment. Writing about my life at work seems pretty unappealing too and I feel weird doing the same when I'm at the library or something.
Anyway, some new thangs.........
I made a new friend, Matthew. He doesn't go to school, but he's still very well educated simply because he's an autodidact. I really admire that about him, as I do with anyone that reads just for the sake of learning. If I had to describe him and his easy-going ways, I would say that he walks slow. What I mean to say is that I like him because he takes his time and he seems to know that whoever he has waiting will continue to wait for him. I like people like that. People who linger to keep a good conversation going, no matter what their agenda or lack there of. We talk about philosophy and language and books. I like that he talks just for the sake of talking, not because he thinks it will get him anywhere.
I'm also dating someone whom I adore. All of the apprehension and fear that I once felt before has been shooed away from my mind. I don't know how that came about, but I'm very content. We spend our weekends in the library together. We dive for records and books and watch french movies together, as well as any other type of film. We never talk about the same thing twice and we take walks together, reading prose poems as we trip over cracks in the sidewalks together, a price for reading and walking at the same time. It's very sweet and I love having someone to say goodnight to.
As for the apartment, I'm still there. Dave, K and I were looking into buying a house, but that might have to come a little bit later than what we had hoped for. None of us have full time jobs at this point in time. We can barely scrape by on 550 a month, let alone handle the increased payment for a house where utilities are not included. However, a good bit of news that I discovered is that we are no longer bound to the apartment by a contract for another year. Starting in September our lease goes month to month and we have to give thirty days notice in the event that we do find another place to live. I would love so much to move to a place with hardwood floors. There are so many beautiful and old places in New Cumberland and I wish to live in a place that suits me a little better.
