Last weekend my internet connection went out, so after waiting 24 hours I had to give Comcast a call so they'd send out a technician. While they had me on the phone, the woman helping me mentioned that they had a special deal going on — for basically the same price I'm paying now, I could have high speed internet and phone service through Comcast. The deal lasts a year, at which point I can call them again and see if there are any other deals, or just cancel the service completely. I don't think I could say no; my cell phone gets really shoddy reception in my apartment, so I can't be on the phone AND walking around doing things like cooking dinner or mooching at my computer.

So now I have a landline, and a 415 phone number. My cell phone, for those who have the number, is the same as before, and I'm keeping it, of course. If you want my 415 number, shoot me an email and if I know you, it's yours.

I've been pretty quiet the last couple of weeks, but I've had a lot on my mind. Going to New York in just under two weeks. When I get back, I'm going to be starting the process of getting my life together and deciding where to settle. And also to find someone to settle down with.

My life is good and stable, the only thing missing is that person to share it with. I found out last week that a couple of people I know are getting married next month, and having a baby this September. For the first time maybe ever, this type of news really struck a chord deep inside me. I'm 28 years old, still single, with pretty much no hopes of settling down with the person I want to be with. It's just kind of depressing, sometimes.
