What makes you happy?

The smell of sandalwood and rose petals is a favorite of mine. Not because it smells good, which it really does, but because it makes me think of a dear friend of mine who used to draw a bath for me on my bad days, when I thought the world must be ending and I was so overwhelmed but I didn’t understand what was happening.

Time to reinvent myself.

In my last post, I briefly mentioned that I was undergoing a revision of sorts and that it has put me in some interesting situations. Now that the proverbial cat is out of the bag, I suppose I should really let people know what’s going on in my life.

At the moment I am living in a hotel while I try to save up the money to get into an actual apartment (which isn’t as easy as it sounds when you don’t make very much). I originally didn’t want anyone to know about it, but as it is starting to feel like an adventure that just won’t end, I suppose it is important for me to quit trying to hide it from the rest of the world.

Due to a… misunderstanding… at my old apartment, I chose not to re-sign my lease for another year, and had to move out on rather short notice. Having not had the time to actually look for a new place, I moved into a hotel, and have been using Hotwire to find me a new place periodically. You know, to get the best price.  Well, a few nights ago they made a mistake which landed me in a rather scary location.
