I like life. It’s something to do.
The Experiment is going well. A few minor glitches since I’ve upgraded to Lisa, but nothing that I’m too worried over. Though I do wish that there were easier ways to update my Java and Shockwave Player. And for all I know there may well be an easier way than what I’m doing, but I’m not going to stress on it. Life is too short and there are computers that will do what I need them the java for.
Lyo and I are trying to start a weekly Movie Night. It is kind of like Date Night, but you don’t need to go anywhere. You still get the popcorn and big theater sound, but not the cost. I’ve actually been thinking about it lately since our lives have become busy.
And by busy I mean we have more of a social life now than in the 10 year previously combined.
I know shocking isn’t it. 😛
But still true. I think what is keeping me from freaking out about this much social activity is that most of the people I’ve known for a few years. The others I hang out with at deer camp. And some are people who’ve been hanging around the edges long enough that they finally feel a comfortable around us I guess. So in one way or another I’ve known them for sometime.
But it still seems odd to me.
I’m used to a hermit like life. I go to work to socialize then go home and tune out the world to the best of my ability aided by alcohol. 🙂 At least I used to. These days I go home and my first thought is to take care of Lyo or the house. Sometimes even the neighborhood dogs if they’re out and about.
But I miss being my hermit-self. It was cozy and comfortable. I learned a lot from books and the internet (most of it I’ve ignored). And I always had something creative going. Now it seems like the more social I get the less I get done or learn.
I guess I’m just never happy where I am even though I feel happy about it.
Life is odd sometimes. 🙂
