Thinking online (this post has no real point)

Before I came I wrote about how I'm one of those people who likes my space. Well, yeah, after four months this is really, really getting to me. And even though I am soo glad that my little sister is here, it's really not helping things in terms of the crowding. In fact, it means I now have to share my laptop on top of everything else.

Which, you know, is fine. I love my sister, I wanted her to come and I still want her here. I'm just really not used to being in such close quarters with so many people for such a long period of time. After all, I lived alone for two full years and for some reason I never felt crowded living with Paul. Just really, really happy. Which, I suppose, is why I'm marrying the man. We "mesh" so well it always felt like we were just one person, not two people sharing a space.

I guess part of it is that I'm a person who, when I'm feeling very overwhelmed emotionally, tends to shut off around people. Or I'd like to be able to shut off, close the door and just hide.

Last night I was feeling very "ugh" over some job-search-effort-related-stuff and there were just people everywhere. I hate it when the people around me know I'm depressed and I don't like to show my negative emotions. In fact, even when my grandmother died while I was here I barely cried because I just didn't feel comfortable doing that in front of my roommates. With Paul, I can let these things out because I don't mind telling him everything. If I'm grumpy I just tell him, I'm feeling grumpy and somehow he has this way of making me not grumpy. When I'm being my normal neurotic hyper-obsessive self, he has a way of calming me and reassuring me that things will be okay.

So I guess part of the reason I'm feeling so...antsy...crabby...generally annoyed and wanting to snap...is because I'm away from my security blanket (Paul).

I forgot to mention that I booked flights for the trip my sister and I will be taking around Europe in May. Schedule as follows (for anyone who might want to meet up with as at any point along the way, you know who you are!):

May 3, 2007 - Fly from Paris to Barcelona

May 5, 2007 - Fly from Barcelona to Venice
May 7, 2007 - Train from Venice to Roma

May 10, 2007 - Fly from Roma to Athens

We fly back to Paris on May 14th. Anyone with suggestions on things to see or do, please share in the comments! I have a feeling Barcelona is going to be a sun & fun drinkfest (if I can corrupt my sister enough for her to agree to this), Venice will probably mainly be sightseeing, Rome sightseeing (and gorging ourselves on delicious Italian food) and then Greece...more drunken debauchery and sightseeing? But I have no specifics so any tips you might have would be great.

Hoping for one just like her

Today (technically yesterday for me, but it's still today in the good ol' USA so shhhh!) is my little sister's 22nd birthday. And I know, I know, that means that she's technically not so little anymore, but to me she will always be that cute little two year old who calls herself "Tony" because she can't pronounce her name properly.

She found out last week that she got into Stanford for their Master's in Education program and when I called her today to wish her a happy birthday she told me that she also found out she got a fellowship from Stanford. There are no words that can express exactly how proud of her I am.

My little sister has always been the angel in the family, and a total over-achiever. And while I guess some sisters might resent that, all I can say is that honestly? If I'm ever lucky enough to have a daughter? I hope that she turns out just like my sister.

Happy birthday mei zi!
