Recently, I uprooted and moved, again. I've moved before, but this was still a new experience for me. When I moved from Montana to Washington, I took a week and toured the different cities I was thinking about moving to, so I would know which one to pick. When I moved to Japan, I had a career waiting for me, and a network of forigners who were relocating, just like me, to rely on. When I moved to Seattle, I had school work to engross me, and introduce me to new people. But when I moved to California... I had no job waiting for me, and only the vaguest idea of what the city was like.
It's been about four months now, I guess, and I can honestly say I've never felt so crushingly, disparingly, crippelingly alone in my entire life.
I have job offers, so things are finally moving forward in that department, and I've found a Swing Dance scene that's active and just a walk+bus ride away, but none of that changes the fact that I feel alone.
I've had a lot of luck, in the past, making friends on the internet. Especially here, on DA. So I'm casting my net, once again. I know it's sort of egotistical, asking people to come to me, but I clearly fail at making friends, or this wouldn't be a problem.
I'm very fandom oriented, so if you'd like to chat about X-men: Evolution, that would make my day. I also enjoy escaping my own crushingly lonely life by pretending to be other people-- you know. Role Play. I'm a terrible speller, but I do try, really hard, to be a good RP partner, and to give as good as I get.
So. I guess. If any of that tickles your fancy-- chatting or Role Playing, or whatever-- send me a note?
I'd really appreciate it.
