weird.

Wednesday, June 11, 2008

Just wanted to get back on here and update a bit. It's been a Very Strange Week. I turned 24. WOOHOO! That started out the week. It was a strange birthday and that's all I'll say about That. However, I am one year older and I'm pretty happy about being in my mid-20s, despite the fact that everyone puts me at least 6 years younger than my age. And no, I do not believe that when I'm old I will look younger. It doesn't work like that. At this point in my life, it is not a compliment when someone says you look 16 or 18. Might be cool when I hit my 30s or 40s, but at the moment, not so much. Besides, I have no idea why people feel the need to always comment on your age. Which reminds me... Apparently I'm now married; to whom I have not the faintest. Would be kind of nice to know who the sucker is. Basically what happened was some dude referred to me as "Mrs. Allen" on a public forum I frequent for my living history stuff. Not a huge deal, just has never happened to me before. Weird.

Gotta say, this whole week has been filled with "weird moments." One after the other after the other. Here I have this wonderful week in Georgia. Really really wonderful. I come home and am pretty much hit by reality. Then some more reality. Then a little TOO much reality. And by the end of it I am thinking "wait a minute...what just happened here??" And then I sat back and thought about what I've learned or have been learning a lot about in the last year or so. No, I take that back. This is something I've learned in the last umm lifetime and I guess I will continue to learn about it...

#1 -- You can't please everyone.
#2 -- People judge. They just do.
#3 -- Somehow, someway, there will always be disappointments. Always.
#4 -- But just when you think it's the worst it could possibly be...
#5 -- Life Goes On.

And that, my friends, will complete this entry for tonight. It's been a bit stressful, if you cannot tell by the tone of my post. But I'm dealing and it's OK. I do want to say I've unintentionally taken a bit of a break from blogging/reading blogs/flickr-ing/online obsessing etc etc etc. I think it can be a good thing. I'm still on a "mid-19th century high" after Pickett's Mill so I may get back on here and talk about historic nerdiness. I flipping love being a nerd. Makes me feel so free. And despite all this "weirdness" lately, I'm still excited and looking forward to a lot of happenings this summer and beyond. Life is funny and it amazes me all the time. I'll be back...
