Travel for less

I have taken a lot of trips in my day and most of them for very little money. I've been thinking about starting another blog that would be dedicated exclusively to travel, both past and future, with tons of pictures. As soon as I find the USB cord for my camera, I'll get one started.

damn allergies!!!

While sitting in my chair at work just now, the room took a spin. The catch? I was sitting still.

I was outed....

D found out about this blog last night. I made the mistake of mentioning that I had to look up how to spell Afghanistan and he wanted to know why. After a long process of questions on his part, when I debated whether or not to tell him the truth, I finally admitted that I wrote in an online journal which is not for friend and family viewing. He wanted to know why and I explained that it would be like him asking to read my diary, which he agreed he would never do. After promising to never write anything bad about him without telling him about it so that he can fix it, he dropped the subject.

Update on the romantic situation

I have successfully managed to convince D that we cannot discuss marriage or anything of that sort until he gets back from deployment, but I gave in on the dating thing, with the understanding that I am still emotionally retarded and I can't give any assurances on when that will end. What I could give him is the ability to call me girlfriend and I imagine he is feeling more secure and less lonely even though we are still 3and a half hours apart. Frankly, that's what makes this all possible for me. We can't be together all the time so I can just deal with my life and all I have to do is call him at night and visit every once in a while, which I would do even if we weren't dating, so....yay.
I was watching Studio 60 on the internet at work yesterday (don't judge, you would too if you could get away with it), and one of the characters found out that his brother had been captured in Afghanistan and was being held hostage. The character basically went nuts trying to just figure out what was going on and I started to cry. I do not want to go through that, but I know that it's possible, even probable that I will go through something similar. There will be times when I don't know where he is or if he is ok. Life is strange.

Check it ya'll, arm muscles!!!

I am now officially living in a new address and my friends having standing orders to slap me in the face the next time I get the brilliant idea to move.

I haven't had much to blog about lately other than the sadness sucking at me and D and the confusion about him and life in general, so I started thinking about what else I could write about. I was visiting a site the other day that really got me thinking. A woman was, through several entries, discussing the long road that led to her first kiss. It was beautiful and a little tragic, but it made me think about all the silly stories I have told over the years and about all the adventures I had that no one knows about but the ones that were actually there. So I think when I just can't write about what I'm feeling anymore, I will write about something I remember. Enjoy.

P.S. S, some of these stories may seem familiar, but I'll try not to be boring.
