Hey guys, Jan here. It is hard to believe that is has already been almost 4 months since I posted the last episode of Something Suggestive… and even longer since I actually was in an episode of my show (since the April 1st show was all Rho). It goes without saying that I love you all and appreciate all the support and happy vibes you’ve been sending my way the last few months. Some of you know me and my situation better than others, but for those who are still in the dark, here is a little bit of an update on what’s been going on.
In late April I moved out of the apartment that I shared with my ex and into a place of my own. A smaller, cheaper, somewhat slummy place where I have been unable to afford/get internet, which was fine since I didn’t have a computer anymore anyway. I was able to communicate through Facebook and Twitter, etc. through my phone whenever I was able to find a good spot for WiFi… but then my phone bit the dust, and I’ve been without one since late May. Yeah. I pretty much live under a rock. I’m still working in the same retail store full-time, where I did somewhat recently get a raise, but things have been pretty tight.
Recently a very good friend of mine (who will remain anonymous since I’m not sure if they would want me to tell who it is) gave me their old computer after they upgraded, because they are amazing. So that’s a step in the right direction! I still have no phone or internet, but I now have a computer capable of playing WoW and doing all my podcast stuff when I actually get internet! Huzzah! For now though, I’ve been ninjaing my boyfriend’s mom’s WiFi and using his laptop to check Facebook and Twitter, and watch stuff on Vine and Hulu…
BUT… here’s some news. I am moving AGAIN! The boyfriend and I just put down a deposit on a new apartment, which I’ll be moving into in the next week. It’s a two bedroom like the one I’m in currently, but it’s almost double the size… for the same price. I’ve known the landlord for a while (he’s the owner of a Mexican restaurant here in town and runs a few other businesses) and in exchange for reduced rent and only having to pay one utility, my boyfriend and I will be in charge of cleaning the building (laundry room, hallways, mowing the lawn, etc.), so I’ll be saving around $100 a month in bills.
So… slowly but surely, things are looking up. Boyfriend has a good chance at getting a sales job that he just interviewed for, so if that pans out, things will be golden. Hurray!
So yeah, this has gone on long enough… just wanted to post an update that was longer than 140 characters. I just want to say thank you to all my friends who have been so patient with me and haven’t abandoned me. Rho, Marconin, Vahete, Vitae, Araselo, Liz, and everyone else who has made me laugh and smile in these tougher months, you’re all amazing. And of course, Kyle, I love you.
SO YEAH THAT’S IT FOR NOW THANKS GUYS.
Hope to be back soon. <3
P.S. I GOT ANOTHER KITTY! She's a baby, her name was Cyan... but now it is Muffin. Or something.
** EDIT ** Here's a picture! This is when she was 5 weeks, she's about 9 or 10 weeks now. Almost doubled in size. :3
