So here I am, sitting for awhile

...at a desk

...in an animal shelter

...in Oklahoma.

In less than 3 weeks, I will have a 6-year-old.

In October, I will have been working for "the man" for *shudder* five years.

Ten years ago today I was almost done with my bachelor's in accounting, wondering what to do next.

Three months after that, I'd get my first "real job."

A year after that, I had my first apartment.

Two years after that, my daughter decides to show up.

...and the rest is a blur.

Watching Hugo for the first time...
That scene where Ben Kingsley is walking off with his father's notebook, I am thinking, "Push him down and *take* it back. If he resists, step on his *FUCKING NECK*!"

Man, I've been working too hard.

Sitting with a finished tea...
It's a game of patience. Letting my mind wander and swatting away the thoughts that drive one insane. Trying to gear the mind towards the positive.

You wonder, "has my past colored my behavior?" And your logic tells you, "Of course! For who and what are you, but all that your experiences have shaped you into?"

Does that mean that the paranoia, the pain, and the fear are what has made me what I am? Is that all that there is of me? Is there nothing good to pass on to the future?

Is that all bad though? Teaching the next generation to be ready? Ready to fight, to defend? To perceive and react? Is it wrong to teach them to be self-sufficient and careful of outsiders?

Or should one always be inclusive? Bringing in everyone in the hopes that they are friendly and/or loyal. Is that even responsible? Am I putting her in danger if I do that?

Balance, as my old masters taught me, is the toughest thing to learn.

I suppose I have to make more room in my cup.

nights like this...
I miss my pack.

I miss the crew.

I miss the comfort.

Knowing that I could call for help.

Knowing that I could help.

Knowing that I made a difference.

Between the training, and the common purpose, and knowing that no matter what, someone was on my side.

Damn, I miss my city.

Hurty. drowsy.

Just glad I got to et some of Ms. Hong's dumplings before I had this done.

Hope all are well.

Be back when I feel ok again.
