Not dead. Just incredibly busy and mostly not thinking in long-series thoughts. (Twitter and Tumblr are terrible mind-sinks. Interaction and stimulation without commitment! How very enabling!) But since I turn 30 in less than 4 hours, I figured I'd drop a note here.

TL;DR: House is bought! I have moved in! New office! Family is... still dicking around, because of course they are. Papa passed away in December, which I'm still coming to terms with. I guess part of me knew that he wasn't going to come back home, but I'm too good at fooling myself. And of course said Dicking Around Family are handling the matter of life insurance and final expenses gracefully. By which I mean I'm pretty sure there might be murder, and there's definitely going to be an alignment in who is never being talked to again.

But I have a new house (and even some furniture!), a fulltime position with benefits and am settling in. Things will have to hit a new normal eventually, right?

Happy belated birthday! Did you do anything special? I myself am 28, so I'll be hitting 30 soon, too.

My condolences on the loss of your dad. I can't imagine how hard that must be.

I'm in the early stages of house-buying (well, technically it's a condo but it is it's own free standing building, so it doesn't fit my mental image of a condo) which is exciting. Loans! Title insurance! What the hell are ARMs! Hopefully it will be finalized by August so I can move in when my current lease is up. Was home-buying a smooth process for you?

Hermiting is a valid way to celebrate.

Ah, I'm sorry for your grandpa's passing, then.

Townhouses are cool! And haha, yes, I've learned that ARMs are bad. Luckily I should have enough to get a 15 year loan rather than an ARM. And hey, your list of minimum requirements looks a bit like mine! Location & price narrow my list down enough that I can't be too picky anyway. ;-)
