Ace Update: Another Birthday

It's not a candle, but...*insert blowjob pun here*

Holly crap, today is my birthday! The big two three. I honestly feel a bit surprised at this one. It seems to have come out of nowhere, and the past year seems to have blown by in a lot of ways. Though, I guess I can't really say that it doesn't feel like a year. I guess I just feel like the year has gone by a bit differently than I really expected. I'm working at a job I don't really like, taking a semester off from grad school, I've actually been having sex, but mostly with one person in recent months...I could go on.

But instead I've chosen to overlook the bad and move forward on this day. In fact, as part of this new desicion, I've actually plugged in my computer and turned it on for the first time in weeks. I've mostly kept my online presence down and have only been using my phone. I've been really bad about emails...though I have to blame some of that on the extra hours I was working in the weeks leading up to my big move. I'm honestly surprised that the shift to my new apartment went as smoothly as it did, considering how little time I had to do any actual packing. I was without cable and internet for about four days though, which kind of sucked (I love my TV...seriously). And if you thought I was bad at packing, you should see me unpack. Did I mention I hadn't even bothered to take out my computer until now?

But you know what? I baked myself a birthday cake last night, and I haven't baked anything in a long time. After work today I'm probably going to be seeing my fuck buddy for a little bit (we haven't totally squared everything away, as we both have work today and tomorrow), and I'm actually feeling very optimistic for the future.

So that being said, I guess I should thank all my loyal readers for once again hanging by me while real life kicks me around a bit. I truly believe that this time will be the last time that I have a big outage like that. At least for a long while. And while I am obviously not expecting any gifts (not that I ever do expect them) I know I got some for my birthday last year. So, if you are interested in buying me something, I have updated all my information at my Amazon wishlist, the link to which you can find in the bar to the right. I'm always incredibly grateful to anyone who sends me anything. Honestly, I wish there was a way to have others pay for my groceries. That's where most of my money seems to be going these days.

Anyway, I hope everyone has a good day on my birthday today! Thanks to everyone who has already sent me well-wishes.

Where the Heck has Ace Been?!

Well, those of you who follow me on Facebook and Twitter know that today is my big moving day to get from one apartment to the next. Things have been VERY hectic for so many reasons leading up to this and I have to say I've just not had any time or energy this past week to do any blogging or really anything of any kind that had nothing to do with packing or working or any of the other stresses that have been hitting me left, right, and center.

Let's just say that this moving day has had an even more stressful build-up than last year. Or at least an equally stressful one. Seems like I can't move without roommate problems, money problems, people dying (another person I've known since I was a child died on Wednesday)...the list goes on.

Anyway, with any luck, I should be back up and blogging very shortly. There may be a small blackout period after this post while I get settled in, but nothing so dramatic as the week and a half I've been missing.

Please, everyone, enjoy your three day weekend, if you have one (it is Labor Day Weekend in America). If you don't, enjoy whatever time you have. And enjoy it with someone you love. This past week or so has really enforced in me the idea that we need to be with those we care about. And it has really made me think about where my life is going at this point.

It also has me pulling my hair out.

But that's enough of that. I'm going to log off now so I can pack up the cable equipment.
