Moving on



Packed up and ready to go -- Colorado to San Diego (surf!), then northwards, and who knows where from there...

I even managed to leave a small tunnel so I could kinda sorta see through the back with the mirror. Hope the poor little car makes the trip.

No room in there for my stereo or climbing gear -- ha!

Hmm, I should explain that... see, my once wonderful girlfriend, A, decided, after breaking up with me, that I wouldn't be getting my stereo system, climbing gear, or assorted other items back from her apartment. Perhaps she greatly enjoyed destroying the stuff in a bitter rage, or maybe she just likes high end audio equipment -- I know I did. I considered filing a small claim a month or so ago for the thousand or two the stuff was worth -- heh, I even have the receipts, saved from years past -- and I was all set to file, but when it came down to it I just didn't have the heart to do it. I was pissed, but she had sent me lots of mean email messages, vandalized a couple of my web accounts using my password, and seemed really hurt and, well, it is just stuff. And I still can't help but miss her and wish her well -- I guess once I like a person, and spend a lot of time with them, I just can't hate them. So I move on, and try to have my revenge by living well. Towards that end...

A really cool girl, E, found my profile on TypeTango and we started discussing Myers-Briggs personality types (she's infj) and other stuff. I invited her out to Colorado and she was crazy enough to get on a plane from Vermont, twice no less. It's been a wonderful couple of weeks -- we went rafting on inner-tubes down the Colorado River and biking and hiking and... umm, yah. :) It was really great to be with her. I think being with an introverted girl is much more comfortable for me -- there isn't a constant drive to socialize and you can just be happy together. And it seems more satisfying to share attention with someone who isn't always trying to get it. It was cool. I really hope I see her more. She's understandably apprehensive to get more involved with a guy who is so damn cynical about relationships. Plus the idea of being a transient with me in California or Maui didn't really tempt her overmuch. But maybe if I can get one of those job things and end up somewhat stable for a while I might be able to coax her out...

Oh yah, a job... haven't found any good prospects yet, but I'm looking. Rather tired of being poor. Know anyone who wants to hire a physics geek? I did land one really cool consulting gig calculating the physics behind rotating space habitats and other interplanetary craft, but I don't think that will last more than a month or so. So, still looking...
