Hey all, Happy Thanksgiving, to those of you who're still in timezones that have it.
Aaaah, wow, so I had a nice, long, restful one. Played some video games, procrastinated on a drawing, didn't study, and am now waking up so I can go to my midnight job.
I was gonna go to a community dinner since I have no more family or close friends over here in Idaho, but eh, go figure, I missed it. Yup, ate by myself.
Just bought a big juicy rotisserie chicken and ate it.
Bit of a downgrade from last year's Thanksgiving, but I made so many mistakes that year that apparently it ended one of the best things in my life. So maybe not great.
But you know, I'm done being sad about Kira at this point. This past year-- the summer in particular-- has been entirely about me healing from it. Much of my pain I channeled into my writing (some for projects which have been purely therapeutic, may or may not ever post them) and much the rest of it learning to live on my own. And I owe a lot of my healing to a certain someone whom I hope will read this. You know who you are, and I would guess that many people here have already guessed whom it was. If there's anything I'm thankful for this year, it's you.
It may be a bit early to be saying this, but the year has been quite an adventure. Idaho really is a place where a man can really find adventure. Such an unassuming fly-over state to anyone else has very solidly found its place in my life as my true home, wherever I go in the world after I leave-- if I do-- regardless if there is a girl tying me to this land or not. And you know, perhaps if the break up never happened, maybe I would have never experienced all the beautiful places of nature that I did. Still not sure if it's been -completely- worth the trade off. I still want my fairy tale romance back... but good things have happened, regardless.
So, to all reading, have a happy. And let this past year of mine show that no matter how bad things get, they will get better one day if you just hold on. Even if all seems lost.
Thanks for reading!
