Is my life perfect? No, of course not, shit doesn’t turn around that much in only two weeks.

BUT!

The day after I wrote last about how everything sucks? I met someone, and I think he might be Someone. It’s early, which means that I’m feeling unsure and vulnerable and excited, but he has made it clear that he, too, is interested in me, and he took off Veteran’s Day and spent it with me. I’ll be sad if in two weeks things fall apart, but for now, I’m feeling more optimistic about him than I have about a potential partner in a long time.

Also, I’m applying for a new job! I don’t think I’ll get it—the listing has the feeling of “we already have a candidate in mind but are contractually obligated to let everyone know about it” but I’m proud of myself for taking the step of applying for a position that is nothing like I’ve done before. Worse case scenario, I get my name out there for something in the future.

I’m still not where I want to be, but I’m feeling better.
