What’s really interesting is how the blog has taken off on the Internet. Someone called it the “new BBS”, and in some ways I agree. Then again, in some ways I disagree, only because its community theme runs a bit dry when one considers that if you’re in the right clique, you’ll be able to promote your blog, vacuous as it may seem, as a top visited site.
I digress. In the past few months, a number of things have happened. In September 2002, I broke up with my then boyfriend, and I’m still living in the same house. It’s hard. The problem is that we bought the house together, and I want to sell while he doesn’t. In that respect, the argument went legal the other day, so I am forced to consult with an attorney of my own.
My current beau (the one to whom I have written poetry and fallen so deeply in love with, it makes other people sick to the stomach), is studying for a test at the moment, and tensions are high because we can’t spend as much time together as we’d like. But that’s life.
I’m starting a new business venture. My present company is doing quite well, but I want to get out of IT. Since a misunderstanding with UNISA messed up my plans to study this year, I plan to make money instead, and then I can buy my degree* like anyone else in South Africa.
I got two speeding fines the other day. I didn’t know about the second one until I went to pay the first, and saw “Amount Outstanding” at the bottom. Two fines in one go is impressive, even for me. I’ve never had any traffic violations before, and that includes sweet-talking my way out of THREE violations for talking on my cellphone whilst driving.
