I think I want to stay in New Orleans for a bit longer than I've been planning. Who knows what I am going to do but finding a city I can live in is a very high selling point on the "I should be here for a bit" scale. Coming back to NM kinda made it clear that although I miss this life i had here I really do need to get on with it. It's also 10 degrees out and last call is at 1:20, I mean really. Besides that though I'm not sure where I am going, what I am doing or who exactly I am. And I am ggod with that, I'm on a decent track. I do know I'd like to have a relationship of a meaningful sort and that I'd like to be in a place I really like being, around people I really like being around. Not to say that I don't have an awesome group of people here, I just need a little discomfort to keep me on my toes.

Fiona says it best,

I certainly haven't been shopping for any new shoes
I certainly haven't been spreading myself around
I still only travel by foot and by foot, it's a slow climb,
But I'm good at being uncomfortable, so
I can't stop changing all the time

I notice that my opponent is always on the go
Won't go slow, so's not to focus, and I notice
He'll hitch a ride with any guide, as long as
They go fast from whence he came
- But he's no good at being uncomfortable, so
He can't stop staying exactly the same

If there was a better way to go then it would find me
I can't help it, the road just rolls out behind me
Be kind to me, or treat me mean
I'll make the most of it, I'm an extraordinary machine

I seem to you to seek a new disaster every day
You deem me due to clean my view and be at peace and lay
I mean to prove I mean to move in my own way, and say,
I've been getting along for long before you came into the play

I am the baby of the family, it happens, so
- Everybody cares and wears the sheeps' clothes
While they chaperone
Curious, you looking down your nose at me, while you appease
- Courteous, to try and help - but let me set your
Mind at ease
