... sigh, and missing Michael terribly - he works 10 hours a day minimum at his new job.  We have been pretty much inseperable since we got together; lived together, worked together ... we were never apart more than 2 hours at a time and now this ...  

I try to keep myself busy, but the truth is I just don't feel like doing anything ...

Is this depression?

I can only read, write, watch TV (yuk!), sleep, paint, and draw SO much before I can't do it anymore and start sulking.  I know I need a job -- but there just isn't that much available in this little mountain town (one of its few drawbacks), and I refuse to get some doldrum ho-hum job that will barely be able to keep me awake, much less occupied.

So tell me, my passionate friends (the ones who are still with me ... I fully expect half of you to have rolled your eyes and clicked the 'back' button by now LOL), what does a girl do to keep herself sane when her Siamese twin is missing...?

Go insane. Things are a lot more fun that way.

Seriously though, I don't know what to tell you. Join some clubs or activities? Get a job? (I know...and I can definitely say stay away from retail, especially large grocery stores.) Clean the house? (that'll keep you entertained, I bet.)

Well, maybe someone else will have some better suggestions. (hug)

You could update your website.

Update Michael's.

Create a new one that reflects the two of you now.

Take photographs of the area if it's beautiful.

Silkscreen some PiP T-shirts.

Go to the local school and offer your services as a poem..do talks about poetry, help them write.

Do the same at a senior center...

you could make him lunch and bring it to him during his lunch brake

could make some refreshments and visit him during his break time

or get a job at his work place and you'll be together all day

*ahem* Well, I happen to believe I have a healthy amount of experience in this area...

SO... What about those bike trails? What about hiking and exploring?

Think about all the things that you've WANTED to do when you were in the opposite situation with someone you DIDN'T like:

Doing yoga naked in the living room, exercising until you stink like a dog, singing loud enough to decrease your own hearing... (I mean these are all my favorite hobbies, but you get the idea)

DON'T mope... entertain yourself, overthink, find somebody else to spend time with... Get up and get out while the sun is still rising... Then the rest of your day won't seem as drab. Afternoon outings are nice, but don't do much for lifting your spirits (no clue WHY this is... it just is).

SO:
Get up early and get out in the sunshine.
Plant a garden in your mud hole... er, I mean backyard.
Stretch.
Sing outside.
Entertain yourself.
Be Healthy.
Don't mope.

Got it? Good...

LOL I think Sharon and Elizabeth about have it covered.

Take some classes, learn something you want to learn. Do something you've wanted to do!

Well, I think you should write him sickeningly sweet poetry and sketch pictures of him all day long just so he KNOWS just how much you miss him.

Thanks, everyone, for your suggestions.

Sharon, about the newsletter -- what do I do? Do I have to fill out an application ... go through a series of grueling interviews ... suffer the "poetic hazings" the veteran staff members inflict on the newbies ...?

Do you take blood...?

In other words, I'm interested -- sign me up!
