|yet another random update

i never write in this thing anymore. i guess i don't really think many people read it.
but it's raining quite heavily here which means i'm home and a bit bored so why not update?
let's see. since berlin, i haven't really done much. i'm enrolling in a TEFL course here at a very nice school. still waiting for the court system to get our paperwork in order so i can apply for my card. then more waiting. then finally more school. i'm beginning to wonder if it wouldn't be easier to just reapply for another student visa but that's a bit too expensive for us at the moment - what with having to leave and re-enter the country and all. my friend ceri is leaving and it seems like all my friends are moving away. i think i'm going to start taking some sort of class at the gym if only to meet some more people. it was really easy in school but for some reason not so easy while i'm sittin on my butt in the house heh.
what else? i quit smoking again and subsequently chilled out on the drinking. i haven't really seen or felt any benefits yet but i'm sure they're there somewhere. i have been baking like a fiend. found out i can make an amazingly awesome angel food cake.
luxxie is still with us despite the remarks earlier in the year that he'd be gone by october. c put me in charge of his travel arrangements and i'm procrastinating like all hell. it just breaks my heart too much right now. c hasn't mentioned it either and i know it breaks his as well.
i'm *still* waiting for new york to send me my absentee ballot. i doubt it'll get here before the election deadlines but i'm still hopeful. my friend suji hasn't gotten his either. it seems like american politics are everywhere i go. it's a bit of an odd feeling to know and see others so focused on my country.
c and i were thinking about throwing a halloween party but no one dresses up out here. one of my friends didn't even know when halloween was. *blinkblink* culture shock. they eat sweets and that's about it. it has absolutely nothing to do with ghosts and goblins and creepy things. we'll see what happens. seems silly to do a costume party if only 5 of us are available that night.
i'm going to an NBA game tonight. i have to admit, i never thought i'd be attending an NBA game in spain but it'll be fun. we're going with ana and she's always a bit of a nut.
ummmm other than that not much is going on. i don't know why but i had a severe switchblade symphony kick this morning. then i got really nostalgic and then i remembered all that way back when and got kind of depressed. regrets suck especially when you simply cannot make amends and not for lack of want.
