I'm back!

I'm not sure anyone still reads this, since I haven't updated in months. But to be honest, virtually nothing has happened in those months. The only even remotely noteworthy event involves my selling my first story: "The Calm Tonight" will be published by Lethe Press in an anthology, The Touch of the Sea, later this year. Pretty exciting stuff, I suppose, and I probably should have mentioned that earlier. In any case, though... w00t!

My moods have been pretty swingy lately, usually alternating every few days. Currently, I'm in a sort of slump. I'm tired of just about everything, and I have that distinct feeling that if something doesn't change soon, I'm going to go insane. My mom keeps asking me what's wrong repeatedly, which only makes things worse, because how do you explain that nothing and everything is wrong at the same time? Who knows!

I was thinking about politics a lot lately. Specifically about politicians. I can't decide which one is better: a politician who supports gay rights personally but votes anti-gay or, on the flip side, a politician who hates gays personally but votes pro-gay because of his constituency, etc. I'm thinking probably the former is the worse of the two, since some good is coming out of the anti-gay guy's voting policies. I can't remember why I started thinking about this, but I did awhile back, and I wanted to make a post then, when I had more to say. But for now, this will have to do.

I'm still very lonely. There's this twelve-year-old (he's actually almost 19) that used to have a crush on me, and I kept blowing him off, and now I'm not sure whether he does... but I've been thinking about it, partly because I'm desperate and partly because I've realized I'm not looking, at the moment, for True Love. I just want to have a good time. Go on a few dates. Flirt. Maybe fool around. You know how it goes. Anyway, he's not hideous and he lives very close to me, so I've been like, Hmmm. He's very immature, though... and he's twelve. Sigh. When did I get so old?
