Summarized Update

There has been quite a lot going on, but for the most part, I'm nowhere near as depressed as I was during the final months of year 2011.

Anyone that's been in touch with me over the past year can attest to the fact that 2011 was a year filled with grief, most of which came from two specific sources; my most recent ex-girlfriend and my family. There were also a few other serious things thrown into the mix, some of which are still lingering.

Now, that ex-girlfriend is no longer a problem and while my family has indeed been obnoxious, I've tried my best to lay low just a bit. This approach seems to help my sanity. To what end, I'm not certain. But I can tell you that I am indeed a happier person.

I am still unemployed, but rather than drive myself and everyone around me insane with complaints, I've tried my best to keep to myself and remain occupied. Applications, video games, social gatherings, long conversations, working out, writing; anything I can find to keep myself busy.

This has all led to a sort of restructuring of my circles. My inner circle remains mostly unchanged, while virtually everyone else has been shifted around. While I do miss how close I once was with a few of them, I cannot force things. That's just now how friendship works. So, given the circumstances, the end result has been fairly positive. I could use more direct social interaction with a few specific people, though.

My current state of mind isn't so bad, although I feel an anxiety attack settling in. Hopefully a few cookies, a glass of water and some light music will help.

I was going to write more, but I've been watching tech videos on YouTube for about an hour and a half. Such is life!

Until next time...
