So I haven't posted in a while. I'd like to say that it's because I've been so busy that I just simply couldn't find any time to write.
Although that's part of it, I guess. There's been lots of stuff going on and Saturday was potentially the most fun I've ever had (more on that to come).
But more than anything I've been lonely.
And I want to whine about it. Gods know that if you've been around me in the last couple of weeks you've heard me talk about it. I feel like I need to talk about it because it feels beyond lame to hide it. But now I just want to whine.
So I'm not going to.
Fuck whining. I want something to happen. Good gods I just want something new to happen.
I have wonderful family and friends, a good job and a nice house - but I'm feeling uninspired and unmotivated. Just give me something to be passionate about.
I've been feeling that itch - no, not that kind of itching, gross-o's - I've been feeling antsy, needing to get away. I haven't been out of town since Labor Day's campout, and before that it was August for an overnight trip to Des Moines for a girl's weekend. Before that I hadn't been out of town since Cabo in February. All were great trips, but the last time I was anywhere farther away that the tri-state area was almost a year ago.
This time, I think I need to go somewhere new and explore on my own. Or somewhere old and explore on my own. Yes, I've been lonely so maybe a solo vacation doesn't sound logical on the surface, but I think it could do good things to get me feeling confident alone again. I know that my old solo journeys were wonderful for me. I mean, look at this happy girl here - I want to be this girl again:

Ahh where to go?
PS: In case you were wondering, this isn't a real post, it's only my attempt at breaking my writer's block and getting opened up again. And whining. It's mostly about whining.
