The more things change, the more things stay the same.

Six months ago, I was certain I'd move back to DC as soon as I finished here, and that maybe two years after that, I'd be ready to settle into a serious relationship. (Note that I didn't say the m-word. That's much further on down the road. At this point, the m-word still causes me to break out in hives.)

But now it's all up in the air -- do I want to go to Pittsburgh? Do I stay here in Georgia? Heck, after visiting Dana, I could even see myself living out in Santa Monica -- even though I swore that I hated LA and would never live on the West Coast again. I am struggling with work and what I want to do with my life in general. I tried to design session cookies so that computers and servers have memory but I am unsuccessful to no avail. Everyone can do it better than me it seems.

Where do I go now? I feel like a nomad again.

But I don't feel as hopeless as I used to. Twenty-four is oh so very young. I'm not sure I know what I'll do with myself just yet, but I still have lots of time to figure that out.

In the meanwhile I cherish the Athens moments. The sunny days on the soft, green lawns. The drinks with friends at cozy bars. Dinner conversations under the watchful glow of a local restaurant's twinkling christmas lights. Sipping coffee while watching the early morning light fall at strong, sharp angles onto downtown's historic facades.

I'm a hocke fan!

First and foremost I am a hockey fan, more specificically a Vancouver Canucks fan. I have season tickets so I manage to get to a lot of games and if I am not at the game I am watching it on TV, just to warn you that I love hockey.

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, which is very important to me, so it would be nice to meet someone who has the same values. I can be a little on the shy/quiet side when I first meet someone new, but that changes onces I get to know you.

I work out at the gym 5 days a week and am looking for someone who cares about their health and fitness. This person will also have to be honest, dependable and wil have to know how to be respectful of me and will get the same in return. I have always tried to treat people in the same manner as I would like to be treated, I don't think that is too much to ask for now is it. I would prefer someone in the age range of 35 to 45.
