Moving today, it's gonna suck. Aaaaaaaaaa.It's raining and we got a nail in one of the tires, and the pizza place lost our order, so we're off to a great start.

Welcome home.

Well, moving always sucks but I hope it's worth it in the long run and that you and yours enjoy your new home.

Are you moving far from where you were?

Hope your luck increases substantially

About an hour and a half, it's just the time crunch and expenses that suck so bad.

Crying's ok

Not much to do ever except feel your feelings and try to do right by everybody

All the energy in the universe flows together as one. Your perception of that one entity as separate and unique and special is a total smokeshow. All entities are one immense interconnected pool of energy that our frightened shellshocked minds can't make sense of because we've become momentarily detached from the pool and lost in this limited dimension.

Out of desperation, our minds project a cartoon-like version of reality where we single out little droplets in the energy pool (people) so we can form an emotional attachment to them... To help us manage the constant yearning we feel to again be conscious of the universal pool of energy and our constant connection to the universe. We can't perceive what we are or why we exist or where our place in the universe is while we're stuck in this limited form.

Your crush is part of the same energy you're part of; all beings are a part of. The blinders that make that particular entity seem more important than the gazillions of others floating around out there desperately trying to regain consciousness are just a series of electromagnetic impulses or some boring science shit like that. Tricking you into thinking you can fill the emptiness by bonding with another being, when you're already bonded with the entire universe and just can't perceive it right now.

Imperfectly, the same way everyone else does.

But no matter how it ends, even if you know MY backstory, in the long run love is all that matters and all that lasts and the only thing worth remembering when it's all over.

Congratulations.

And ita with Pop. You cry. You cry a lot.

Work Christmas parties should be paid. I'd almost rather just work. Being forced into a drinking situation with bosses is not my idea of fun.

My company's party is planned to be 7 hours long (whyyy?!!!!) and out of town. Plus, which is the worst of all, it's a themed party. First time I'm going in years, and only because they're providing transportation.

I feel your pain. My only suggestion is for you to take advantage of the free food and drinks.

edit: I hope to god it's free where you are too

I am so thankful my boss isn't drinking right now. We had our group holiday lunch and she didn't get mean-drunk for once. I really hate being around her when she drinks.

Do many raddlers go somewhere special over the holiday period?

I go to my parents place with a bunch of extended family for a few days. It's pretty fun.

I won't but luckily I have my roommates and a few friends who will come over. A lot of different diet restrictions for dinner, gluten-free, vegan, some halal meat for friends, it should be a good time if a bit hectic in the kitchen

I'll probably take the dog for a walk again.

I used to have a family. I thought this (giftmas) was going to hurt a lot worse than it has so far.

The dog is pretty awesome that way. So are the people I've met here.

dogs (and pets in general) are a beautiful salve in this world

Less stressful week this week but I think I haven't accomplished enough at work because of it. I go on vacation starting Wednesday and I'm terrified if I don't get enough done before I go that I'll be fielding and emails and phone calls the entire time. :(

Oh yeah, and I probably won't be online much the next two weeks, y'all. I hope you all have lovely winter holidays. <3 you all.
