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.
