+ 4.0 my first semester of grad school.

Congrats on the 4.0 dakota.  Also, one time I wrote "www.internet.com"(or something similar) on some outgoing mail to you when I was visiting Cairo, just because I recognized your name from PIXboard as I was going through a stack.

+my new job has gotten super awesome in the last year, and I just got a huge raise and I feel like I'm worth it.
+an analog audio electronics class that wouldn't admit outside majors is now opening an online certificate program and I'm enrolled this semester.
+My hackerspace just moved into a 3300 square foot warehouse, and its biking distance.  4-years ago we had 120 square feet downtown. 2 years ago we moved into 1500, but it was really far away and I rarely went.

-I've been feeling slightly distanced from all of my best friends for the past 6 months. . .   Some seem addicted to nostalgia, some seem stuck in the limbo of pubs, and others seem trapped behind their own eyes.

+I'm beginning to not feel so guilty about being an artist.

- today someone destroyed my bike (snapped the handlebars, bent the fork, broke the wheel, bent the frame, brakes, etc. its like they drove into it repeatedly with a scooter or took a bat to it.) they also left a note on my bike that read "fagot." they couldn't even put the second g in.

What in the fuck, kw. I wonder if they were targeting you specifically, or just looking for a nice bike to smash up. Either way, be careful, dude.

+  I'm starting on the job hunt again (my supervisors at work are super supportive, by the way), and for a while it was slim pickings, but in the past couple of weeks I've been finding and applying to about five jobs a week or more.  Most of them are things I'm actually qualified to do, and I'd like to hope I have enough experience that I would at least be considered for them.  I'm trying not to get my hopes up, but I'm pretty excited.

My bike received a little taped-on note about a local facebook closed queer group today. It's positive, obviously, but I can't help but feel a little wigged out that someone that I don't know has pieced me and my bike together.

- My partner and her cat just moved away, beginning what we are calling "relationship medium mode" status. Everything has been so easy with us, we communicate so well and work together so well, so this is a major hurdle we're taking.
- I bawled my little eyes out listening to her cat crying in the crate, I'm gonna miss him so much!
-/+ though I am mildly excited to have a room to myself again, it's still in bummer phase.

Rory, that's so sad :( It seems like y'all have a pretty solid foundation, though, so I'm sure you guys can work through the distance. Also, this is an awesome opportunity to send each other neat things and letters in the mail!

+ Moving to Virginia Beach on Sunday
+ Excited to meet the new derby league and meet all of the roommates and explore a new city!
- Had to say goodbye to my derby league last night
---- E-mails with my ex. He says he has regrets about our breakup. I'm sad but also angry. Sad because I miss him and thought we were going to be life partners and I was more in love with him than I've ever been with anyone. Angry because fuck yeah he should have regrets (broke up after we moved across the country together, while I had a broken ankle, and all because he took it upon himself to decide that I "needed" to be taken care of and then he couldn't provide me with that when he admittedly said he knew deep down it wasn't what I needed because I never led him to believe that and he knew I can take care of myself)
- Whyyyyyy can't I just get over this dude already!? It's been over 8 months since we broke up!

knowing how i feel about my boo/our future plans together, if we ended up breaking up for whatever reason, i think it would take me way longer than 8 months to get over that. it's more than just losing your love and your partner, you have to grieve the death of the future you planned together, explicitly or  implicitly, and that can take a really fucking long time. i hope it's gotten and keeps getting easier buddy.

-/+ really really torn on my job situation. a friend recently got a new job as a virtual receptionist and the company she's working for seems really amazing and also the work seems REALLY EASY AND CHILL and once she gets permanent status (after 90 days) she gets a $2 raise and will be making more than what i'm making now, and she was a position below me at my current job. she is 100% sure i could get a job at the same place and i'm running out of reasons to stay where i am. i'm getting soooo burned out by all the shitty shit i have to deal with all day and the promises that were made to me are looking more and more like bullshit and my new manager who seemed really promising for training me is turning out to be kind of the worst. I have reasons to stay - I love the company i work for (most of the time) and i love working with clothes and rad ladies and i've made some pretty serious commitments to my district manager, plus the prospect of moving to alaska... but at this point i'm busting my ass to pick up the slack of everyone else, including my manager, and honestly that's all i've ever done at this store, despite being promised otherwise countless times. I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DOOOOO

+ Started the first stages of student teaching today!  I'm in a fifth grade joint Language Arts / Social Studies classroom.
- It's 25 miles from my house, and sometimes I have to go there straight from an overnight shift at work.
- Food poisoning.
+ Grad classes started back up today.  Seems like they're gonna be fairly fun.
- I'm in class from 4 - 10 PM straight.

That's rough.  I worked a night shift at a hotel when I was in grad school, and one semester had to go from my job to six hours of classes (two classes, each of which were three hours long.)  Good luck!

Yeah, I've definitely got some really long days.  Nothing too unmanageable, though.

+ My fifth graders are great!  They say so many goofy things.
- Booking / Playing / Going to fewer shows.
+ Looking at PhD programs?  Kind of a weird feeling, but it seems absolutely achievable.

Company loyalty to an employer that doesn't give a shit about you isn't admirable. You're not a shitty person for not caring about those who don't care about you.
Anti-Creative Records sells some things.

+ I've been mostly adjusting to my partner being away at school and figuring out how to live alone again.
+ I love my room the way it's set up. It's a perfect productivity cave and I've been using it to great effect.
- My low-level constant anxiety is up, and I'm definitely reverting back to myself a few years ago with my in-group nervousness. Not having a person to fall back on is tough.
- I'm generally scheduled to work through the weekends, which are not only the hardest shifts my job has to offer, but because the tips are split instead of alone, also do not pay out as amply. I feel a bit like I'm being punished for being an employee who is up to snuff.
- Sometimes I worry I will never be able to get up the gumption to leave this job and try and embark on a new chapter of my life. I'm very attached to this job/this house/this city/this community but in some ways I feel like by not leaving I'm just limiting myself and taking the easy route.
