My sister got a job at Digital FX this past week, as an illustrator. They're a pretty good company, supposedly I'm told. Well, I guess they're going to be even better. My sister is a really good artist. Since they called her for an interview (right after graduation), I had pretty much guessed that she'd eventually get the gig. She called to say that she's already almost finished with her first job, a commercial for Mayor Simpson's campaign commercial (which is I guess will be having animation). Anyone living in Baton Rouge will have to tell me how it looks, because I guess I won't get to see it.

I asked her to think about designing me some pages for my website, since I don't know anything about Flash and have basically forgotten everything I knew about html. I should come up with an idea about that.

And meanwhile I sit here in this lab all day resenting everything about my choice of college major and what the hell it will mean as far as any hope of me enjoying my natural adult life. But, there's more to life than being happy.

How did you find this LJ? I don't even remember telling any of my friends from Baton Rouge about it. You must be a pretty good data miner to find it.


Anyway, hey how's it going? Long time no see and everything. I had heard that you had just up and moved away to Australia 6 or 7 years ago and gotten married. So I guess it wasn't just some rumor. Why exactly did you move away?

Re: Holly hell fucking christ on a damned pogo stick
I found your LJ cuz I was looking at random members of the BR community. I mean, perfectly random, which I do sometime. I can't credit my data mining skills.

It's going fairly well *nod* I moved to Australia Jan 98 with my then husband, Jeff. (At the tender age of 16, how oh so Louisiana of me.) We have since divorced (well, duh?), but we have two children - Felicity and Jada. So I'm pretty much concreted in my move here, cuz I can't take them back with me. Which is ok. Australia's a pretty great place to live and has given me a lot since I've been here. So completely different though, and at first I was pretty homesick. Til things started improving for me and I made new friends, etc... and realised I was actually a lot better off here. Man, life in Baton Rouge seems like a distant memory now. I was so unstable and out of my mind. Things are so different now with my studies, work and kids. But good *nod* :) (Studying business management through TAFE here. I dunno what the equivilant there is, but it's what most people do. Working running a 'sex shop', of sorts anyway, for women. No real porn to speak of and the toys only make up 20% of the stock. We deal mostly in having a speciality sexuality bookshop (everything from erotica to menopause). The owner is teaching at the Royal Women's Hospital for various women groups (menopause, cancer, etc...). It's hard to acurately describe, but I love it, so there ya go. Been doing it for 3 years.)

Last I heard of you you were going to marry Caroline. I suppose that didn't work out. Sorry to hear it... Or not? I mean, is it a good thing or a bad thing?

I went back to the United States for the first time last year. I ran to Erin's friend (i can't remember her name) at a Godspeed show. But apart from that, I had heard nothing of you in years. Really great that you're working on your PhD. I'm not surprised though. I never imagined you wouldn't go on to do that at the very least.

The other day me and my partner Shay were laying around and we started talking about my life back in BR. Which is something I rarely do so he's always happy to hear about it. We started talking about people I knew. At first I was thinking I was ok with not having contact with pretty much everyone, cuz that was then and this is now and life just pulls people into different directions. But then I said that if there was anyone I'd be exstatic to see again it would be you! I even made mention of it in my LJ! It was the first time I'd really even remembered you in so long that it's just so weird that I came across your journal not even a week later.

Anyway, drop me a line sometime. It'd be cool to catch up if you ever have a few minutes to kill on your computer. *nod*

Later
Michelle

p.s. I got the Skinny Puppy symbol tattoed to my leg. (Quite small), which is among a few other, fortunately hidden, tattoos I'm now paying a small fortune to have removed. (I'm keeping the Puppy one though.) Sometime when we are chatting real time I HAVE to tell you about the one on my chest, which will almost certainly have you pissing yourself laughing. It never fails to give people a shock worth telling all their friends about. And that's not a good thing. *hangs head in shame*
