Half-Assed NaBloWriMo Day 1

Okay so I've always wanted to participate in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) but I would never, ever be able to do it. I briefly considered doing NaBloWriMo (National Blog Writing Month) but I think this is going to be a busy month.

Then I stumbled upon another 30 day meme so it's going to be my half-assed attempt at NaBloWriMo. It's got different questions than the old one, I like it.

Here we go!

Day 01 - Your current relationship, if single discuss how single life is.

Well it should come as no surprise that my boyfriend is Anthony, as I've mentioned approximately 50 million times and even more if you ever talk to me in person (I talk about him a lot).

How we met is kind of interesting. Last summer he was bored and after a Google search, ended up on my Nunavut blog. He liked it, saw my link to my Twitter account, and started following me. He wrote to me a few times on Twitter, telling me he liked my blog and he wanted to say hello. I didn't really pay attention because I used to get a lot of comments, emails, and tweets about my blog and it was hard to keep up with. Every now and then Anthony would comment on something I'd tweeted about. Admittedly, I kind of thought he was weird and verging on annoying. I didn't follow his Twitter and wasn't interested in following him on Twitter.

In early December (2009), I mentioned on Twitter I was obsessed with the song "Go Let it Out" by Oasis. Anthony replied to me AGAIN, saying some nonsense about an unplugged concert bootleg he had and was willing to email me. I replied with my email address and after he wrote me a cute introduction to himself in his email, I realized he wasn't such a weirdo, he was actually interesting. We started emailing back and forth and then we agreed to play Settlers of Catan online. I should say that at this point, I was coming out of an extremely tumultuous, soap opera-esque relationship in which my heart and social life had been proverbially hit by a train, struck by lightning and then drowned in a river of fire (to put it nicely), and was in no way on the hunt for a new boyfriend.

After we had a chance to chat online on the Settlers website, we started chatting on Facebook and Gmail everyday for hours. I was just about to go home for Christmas vacation so we decided we should get together and meet for dinner. Before we met, I already knew I had a crush on him, but he always said he was glad to have a new friend in me so I assumed, sadly, he wasn't interested in me. Little did I know he thought the same thing about me. So we met for dinner and honestly, I don't even remember much of it. I know the waiter kept having to come back because we were so absorbed in conversation, we kept forgetting to pick out food. Then we talked so much I never got a chance to even eat my dinner and it got cold. After Anthony paid, I think we sat around for another half hour or more before I realized we should probably get going.

We've now been dating for 10 months. If it wasn't clear before, Anthony lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan. If it also wasn't clear, I left Iqaluit to be closer to him. Ann Arbor is about a 2 hour drive from Sarnia so we're able to see each other more often.

And now for some bigger news: I mentioned this briefly in my Nunavut blog before deleting it and deciding to announce it later but I will be moving to Ann Arbor next year. I'm currently waiting on a fiancée visa from the American government. Yes, you read that right. While we haven't gotten "formally" engaged yet, that should be forthcoming very soon. It's not exactly under the most romantic terms we're getting married (the visa process sucks and has a lot of regulations), I am excited nonetheless for the next stage of my life. So now that you know all my secrets, I'll conclude this entry.
