so let's see... an update or something.

as you all have read, i had a relationship end back in the end of September. while that was very hard on me, i made it through it and have moved on so to speak. a lot of you have offered words of consolement and i thank you for that. each day in life is a new adventure.

since i haven't posted in a while, a lot of you might be under the impression that i am still hurting and sad. well, while that may be partially true (i don't think people ever fully recover from the wounds of past relationships).. you need not worry, i am fine. single, and fine.

so.. let's see.. what has changed in the past few months. well, i got a nice raise. i have started doing some basic mods to my car; grounding kit, changing the intake and filter, and resetting the ecu (due to the mentioned mods). overall, should be about a 10-12 HP gain, for about $280. not too bad. i am letting my hair grow. i shaved off my goatee/sideburns... but i think i am going to let them grow back.. i don't think i like them off.

okay, so yeah.. that probably bored half of you. anyway, there is an update. or something.

I'm glad to hear that you have been doing a lot better since then. It's nice to see that you can move on, even though it hurts so much. But it's an important lesson learned, and you will find someone who is really worth your time. Best of luck to you, and good job with changing!

So basically, you've gone gay...and never talk to us anymore on silc.

Stop hanging at the sissy bars.

Thanks in advance.

Your loving friend.

how weird, i had no clue that you were out of a relationship. it's interesting because i stumbled upon your journal last month(?) sometime and i liked that "poem" that you had posted. i too got out of a long serious relationship about the same time (august). and i'm glad you're doing well.

i have a question for you, do you see her alot? or do you just avoid her or what?

Very glad to see that things are well with you. I still read your older entries, because I'm going through something similar. In a weird way, it really helps me out. So thank you.

It's nice to see that for the most part your just about back to your ol' self again.

What kinda car do you have? It sounds like you got yourself a nice hobby going for yourself. *A release thing*. And for everything your doing 280 is CHEAP!!

When your all done with it, you should post some pictures of the *job* you did. ;)

i have worked on cars all my life pretty much.

my car is a 2003 Infiniti G35 Coupe 6MT. the mods i am doing are all under the hood (the grounding kit is electrical grounding not ground effects)... so there isn't a lot to see visually. i could take a picture of the engine compartment i guess, but if you want to see what it looks like.. there are plenty of pictures out there, mine won't be anything out of the ordinary. :)

i am however, thinking about getting some new wheels and perhaps dropping the car with eibach springs, but i think i want to stay away from lowering it any more than it is already. there really isn't much clearance to start off with. the rest of the mods i am considering are things like better sway bars and such. things that will increase the utility/handling of the vehicle more so than the appearance.

although, i might do some electrical modifications such as modifying my dvd navigation system so that i can play video games or watch movies. i might do a mod to the homelink system as well to control the dvd navigation mod, like disabling the vss circuit for extended nav changing while still moving, or adding a power relay to control a ps2 or mp3 player or something.

we'll see. i don't want to dump a ton of money into modifications, so i am just doing things that increase my enjoyment of the car or offer some sort of value add like the ability to watch movies or something (for my passengers primarily).

except for the fact that I'm friends with the ex and his new gf...and he keeps popping up telling me he's losing interest in her...

AND the ex i was with before him came back and crushed my heart yet again by taking off to Europe.

ok...so we're not in the same boat...but I WAS up until last Wednesday.
Damn boys.

I just want to be happy and single. Like I was, before Wednesday...before I remembered what i was missing.

k. sorry for the rant. i'll stop now.
much love,
djinn

Its good that you have all of these great changes going on in your life. I just came across your diary today and I have to comment on the poetry that you have randomly put in this journal. Nice and mysterious. If you have more please post them, I enjoy reading your poems. I try and write now and then. Also, I agree with you on growing your goatee/sideburns back. :)
Take care and keep smiling! I'll try and stop by every so often now that I know you're here. ;)
