Conscious Catholicism


Good luck in NY. I am hoping that it is work. I’ll catch you up on things here. I had an interview at AT&T Wireless for an internal technical position. They made me an offer on Friday for six months which is just perfect. I start on Monday, I can’t wait to start. The contract is in Bothel, which is about a 12 mile commute, about 25 mins. from home, againest traffic which is a very good thing. Mike and I are doing ok. There is very little that has changed between us, he really just needs some space and more independence. The thing about this really is it was a wake-up call. I have a tendency to really lookout for the “us” in my relationships and sometimes lose sight of the me and what I want etc etc etc. Mike mentioned yesterday when we were talking that he would like for us to move downtown but that he wanted us to have separate apartments in the same building. I guess that kind of sums up where he’s at. As far as what I am going to do. We are going to stay here until the Springtime. I’ll be putting away about 1/2 of my earnings into my savings account and really just playing things by ear. I’m really tempted to move back down to LA, and yet at the same time I have an equally strong pull back towards the East coast. I’m not sure what the best thing for me to do is, which is fine for right now. The only problem that I have with Seattle is really the weather, it is dreary and overcast most of the Winter which is becoming depressing. The East coast has its cold weather and its snow, LA is overcast and rainy at least in part during the Winter. Anyway, things are pretty good as a whole and I have a lot to be thankful for. The whole apartment thing with Mike made me giggle on the inside, It would be fun to live in the same place however, if I find something that I really like, then thats were I’m moving regardless. I really intend to wrap myself in my work and education over the course of the next six months and play the rest by ear. AT
