Appropriate Name Change & A Brief Update

I had to change the title and description of my blog because blogging everyday proved to be too much. After Shanee coming out here for 6 days, my birthday celebrations, my car breaking down, being sick, plus going back to work...sitting down to write a blog was just the last thing on my mind. I've been living life, not taking time out to write about it. It was a good idea when I had it, but blogging every single day is kind of a tough thing to hold myself to.

My birthday was excellent. Minus the fact that I'm 25 now and feeling somewhat old, it was my first chance to sleep late in weeks. It wasn't even that late, but I woke up on my own time, not because I was obligated to be somewhere. Shanee and I went to the license branch and I got my license renewed. My new picture is ugly. We went to Cracker Barrel and had brunch. Then we went to the movies to see The House Bunny. That movie was hilarious. I was cracking up the entire time. I was the only one in the whole damn theater laughing (there was only 3 of us, which made my laughter even more silly)...but I didn't care. I enjoyed it. Shanee said the only reason she was glad to be there was because she was by my side...she didn't appreciate the movie not one bit. There was one other person in the theater as well and she didn't laugh either. I think I actually heard her groan and sigh a couple of times, she was probably thinking to herself "I paid for this shit, so I'm staying, but this sucks." After the movie, we came back to my place and "hung out," then went to Ginza Japanese Steakhouse to have dinner with a group of my friends. It was fun, plus good food. After that, we all went back to Tanner's house for drinks and Wii Sports. Shanee had never played the Wii before, but somehow kicked everybody's ass.

As part of my birthday present, Shanee got me sweet-ass Colts tickets. It was a lot of fun. The game sucked, but I enjoyed myself.

Friday, we went to Terre Haute to celebrate my birthday with my parents. On the way there, my car began to smoke terribly. We had to get it towed the rest of the way and we had to ride in the tow truck with this old man with like 3 teeth and his speech was horrible and he went 55 mph the entire way. It was horrible, but we made it. We went to dinner with my family and had a good time, then my brother took us to a bar. That was fun as well. I got to meet my brother's girlfriend. She's really sweet. It's adorable the way she looks at my brother, just in awe of him. The next day, my dad got me a rental car and we came back to the city.

Shanee had to leave Sunday, but before she did, we had a serious conversation. Things are still so up in the air and hard to deal with right now. I've decided to put some distance between us for the time being. She wanted to back up to friends, but I took it a step further and said we aren't talking for awhile. I'd rather not say bad things about her in such a public place, but there are several things that absolutely have to change if we are ever going to have a healthy, positive, happy relationship again. We'll see how it goes.

I'm sick. It started, as it always does, with a tickle in my throat. Then it got uncomfortable. Then in the middle of the night, it got painful as hell. The next morning, the nasal congestion kicked in. It's in my lungs now. I got a neti pot and that thing works wonders! I'm officially a believer in it! However, I'm having some slight trouble breathing because of the chest congestion, but I'm not feeling as terrible as I was earlier and yesterday. We'll see how tomorrow goes.

first of all,happy belated birthday! what the heck is a 'neti pot'? sounds interesting. I love the new blog name.Not that I was rooting for you to fail or anything but i had a small feeling the everyday thing would be tough.I've had the same idea but knew i couldnt make it - not with 'real life' intervening. anyway, sounds like the time with Shanee was really fun. Im proud of you for taking a stand with the relationship and choosing to not even be friends for a while. I bet she was surprised to hear that from you.The distance thing can't hurt.you never know,in the end it could prove to be incredibly helpful.lots of luck.thanx for the house bunny review - babe's been begging me to see it and i've been saying no because i know she'll be cracking up like you were and I'll be sitting there looking at the screen like 'wtf' like Shanee was. but i guess it wont hurt to indulge her:)
