Let's give menopause a menaplause.  
I had my first fiction workshop today, and it went much more smoothly than I thought. People said they were generally impressed by my story and my use of language, as well as the complexity of characters and symbolism. The negative feedback I got was generally a few problems of clarity and run-on sentences, so I'm pleased with that since it's fixable. Mostly, it's good because I feared having some immense anxiety attack surrounding my entire class talking about my story, and then me having to talk about it to them, but surprisingly I did not. And I also haven't had a real confidence boost in a very, very long time. It was much needed after yesterday, when I got my first artistic comparison back from my art history T.A., which she pretty much shit all over because it was so poorly done. That was extremely difficult to receive.

All I can say about the past while is that I've been digging myself into a large rut. I'm very stressed out about school, and money, and the complete and utter lack of a social life. I continue to become more and more reclusive, and my apathy about it also continues to increase. It's nice, though, to have forced interaction in many of my classes because it is what I need.

I had a weird Valentines Day, though I really enjoyed my delicious dinner.

I'm leaving Boulder tonight for most of the weekend, and I could not be happier about it. I get so sick of the things that go on here, and often times I wish I hadn't moved back here at all, though that's certainly very arguable because I am enjoying my education and I like having my family nearby. Everything just feels very old, and it's much harder to keep myself happy and focused when it's all been done before. I crave something new, but there is absolutely no feeling of newness I can gather here any longer.

Did I mention I am officially an Anthropology major? I am.

When you get back, let's hang. Honestly I feel so lame. I have no life and I have not seen you in so long. :(
