"The kind that blindside you at 4 p.m. on some idle Tuesday"

That's right, I referenced the infamous sunscreen song. I'm back to blogging again. Yay. Look for frequent updates.

Why is it that the things you have to deal with most are things you thought you'd never have to face? Monday I was home I saw first-hand the kind of things that have been going on between my parents for a while now. It was scary. I never thought I'd be afraid in my own house, but I was. I had to leave and go to my aunt's house, because it freaked me out. I'm not going into specifics, so don't ask.

In a few days I'll go back to Chattanooga, and I won't know what to do. I can't do this alone. I can't go through the kinds of things I'm having to go through without friends and therapy. I'm not even sure how I can get through this. It's hard for me to see myself out of it, but I guess I'll have to, because there aren't any options. I just really wish I wasn't alone.

OAKLAND, CA: Yep, there was a 3.2 around midnight last night. How awesome is that? It was kind of relaxing, really. Definitely not scary.

Today I am doing the car tour of San Francisco, including a trip to the beach, which is only about 60 degrees. What kind of beach is that? Weirdness.

Tonight is probably going to be Hot Yoga. WOOT! More updates to come.

"Where I Got Friends Who Care for Me"

OAKLAND, CA: I'm in California for my first vacation in three years, and it's definitely long overdue. Today I spent the morning in Berkeley, and visited the intersection of Virginia and La Loma, from the Counting Crows song "Perfect Blue Buildings."

A lot has happened to warrant the vaca - my parents' divorce was final last Friday. I've moved to Chattanooga, and while I tell people I'm doing OK there, I'm really not. I think I grind my teeth in my sleep on account of the stress, and my jaws are killing me.

We're hitting up a bar later tonight, then tomorrow I'm cruising around San Fran. Sometime this week, Erica and I are probably going to get in on some Hot Yoga. The weather here is nice. I could see myself moving here at some point. It seems fitting, as I have so much to run away from.
