Not sure why, but I started reading a lot of my old entries. I started at the beginning and stopped at the end of 2001.

Hard to believe how long ago that was.

I had originally thought that while I wrote something almost every day, there was something of substance. Sadly, there wasn't much of substance back then. Lots of talk about buying shit I didn't need (which in hindsight, led up to some of the financial difficulties I had later in life,) or bitching about work. I did encounter some of the things friends (who are no longer in my life for one reason or another) and I talked about, and even encountered friends from LJ that I literally have no idea who they are.

Some of these entries did remind me of things that I had completely forgotten about - playing chess with my brother one weekend, a customer at the bank I worked for bringing Christmas presents to one of my tellers because her husband was overseas, and all her family lived in Germany, and reminding me of the time I saw my first SHARKS (that weren't dogfish) while diving.

I'm probably reading a lot of these things because I'm still sad about how certain things have happened in my life.

It's frustrating on one hand how one person could have such a large impact on my day to day to life, but it just proves how much energy and emotion I had invested in a friendship, only to have it end the way that it did.

Each day things get a little easier but it still doesn't make the pain hurt any less.

I heard from an ex-coworker last night (we worked at the same CU before I left to my current job - I even tried to bring her with me - and I did, but it only lasted a month before she went back to the old place) and she told me that one our former coworkers (Suzanne) had passed away suddenly last weekend, and that our manager (Marguerite) had left the CU recently. It was really hard leaving ML and the JRs when I left, but this was an amazing opportunity for me. I don't know the cause of either event, but it doesn't help me to not be sad about things.

Today, I basically played hooky from work. Waking up was proving difficult so I pretty much just said "fuck it" and stayed home. No one is here today, so it's quiet, and I have been working so it's not like I'm being a total bum or anything.

Well, "work" is done in about an hour, and I plan on running today, so I have that to look forward to. Afterwards, I have the house to myself tonight so I'll have to figure out what to do.

The next few days are going to be SUPER busy for me - Thursday we are going to Emerald City Comic Con. This will be my first time, and I'm excited to meet David "Mouse Guard" Petersen and Terry "Strangers in Paradise" Moore (well, I've met him once) for the first time. Get lots of stuff signed, and deal with 100,000 people. Ugh. Then afterwards, it's off to Centurylink for the first home Sounders match of the new year. It might snow. So there's that.

The rest of the weekend will involve going back to the chiropractor and donating blood. Fun.
