Reconnecting and stuff

I've been kind of a hermit crab the last couple of years. I'm still in hermit mode, but I'm slowly creeping out of my cave again. In that vein, I'm trying to reconnect with friends and start blogging again. I've mostly been using facebook, but I'm going to try to pop in here too.

As an update to what's been going on with me: I've started exploring my pagan spirituality again and trying to find a patron God or Goddess that I really connect with. I've also become a vegetarian. Granted, that's only been the last two weeks, but so far so good. I'm only hoping I can make it through Thanksgiving and the Winter Holidays without giving in. I have found that for the most part I don't miss meat. It seems like its been more of a habit than anything else. I'll be running around and grab something quick, and the most obvious choices are meat. I've found though that I can get good vegetarian choices at Subway, and even BK has a veggie burger. It's still not great for me, but it's not meat. After New Years I'm going to try to transition to a vegan diet, but I want to get used to this first.

I'm also considering moving north this summer. I love my job, but I work in a Fish and Wildlife law enforcement office, and I'm finding the close mindedness and bigotry difficult to live with. I feel as though I'm selling out by working here, but I don't want to loose my job either, especially in this economy. I'm in a quandary with it. I am looking for another position that offers more stability, but since it would still be in Pensacola, I'd run into the same issues. Moving north sounds good as the farther north you go, the more tolerant people are...at least it seems that way to me.

If I do go I have to save money up, and won't be ready to leave until after May, so I have time to think about things. For now I'm going to leave it out there, and just carry on like I have been.

*hugs* Yes, the farther north you go the more tolerant people are. I was in Seattle for 2 years, came back to BR for the last 6 months, and I'm desperately trying to get my ass back! I hate the ... provincialism here, if that makes sense.

As far as the Pagan spirituality and vegetarian/vegan go, good for you! There seems to be a bit of that going around. I teach weekly classes for people learning more about Paganism, and I'm heading more towards being a vegetarian every day. *shrug*

Nice to hear from you again, and I do hope you make it by LJ regularly!

Thanks...I'm realy looking hard at moving, but I keep coming up with excuse why I can't. Some of them to have some validity...I have two cats, so the trip will be hell and rehoming them is out of the question. One is 14, and I've had her since she was 6 weeks...she still doesn't trust my mother and sister...
But really, that's just an excuse not to go. The truth is I'm scared. I've lived in in the Mobile/Pensacola area since I was 3, and the farthest away I've been is Baton Rouge. If I do make a move like that I'll be in a new city, and won't have any friends or family to fall back on. Realizing that I know I really NEED to go. Even if I do end up hating it, I need to get out of Pensacola, and try living somewhere else for at least a year.
