I'm kind of glad that I didn't book my first hotel, right when I was 21. There's something gratifying about looking at all the hotels in the area we need to stay, spotting one with a rooftop pool, and not even considering the extra $20/night necessary to take a swim 25 storeys off the ground. Did I use a rewards program to get a discount, though? Hells yeah--I'm a salaried employee, not an idiot.
In a couple of weeks, R and I are going to be visiting friends, about fifty minutes north of my current location, and both of us are going to drink, and neither of us is ending up on a shitty air mattress that deflates around 4am. We are getting a taxi to our hotel room, where we can sleep in a king-size bed, wake up to a hot buffet breakfast, and then go for a swim in the fucking sky.
Special occasions are great, and deserve to be celebrated, but, holy crap, sometimes it feels so good to look forward to celebrating just for the sake of it.
Things, otherwise, are going fine. I've been trying to harness my wardrobe, lately, because everything else has steadied. It used to take somewhere around 40 minutes for me to put together enough outfits for a long weekend trip, and now it takes me somewhere in the ballpark of two; I'm convinced that this is the sign of an exceptional wardrobe--to be able to look at your clothes and know that everything matches with at least something, and there is at least one garment for every occasion.
R and I are good, steady. We had a rough patch, while he was dealing with some hard stuff, and we were fighting a lot because of that stress...but I'm all about seeing arguments/long-term issues/sniping as opportunities to strengthen our communication and conflict resolution skills. That's exactly how we handled it, and now we're more disgusting than ever.
Generally, things are very stable, and that's all I can ask for, right now. We're trying to buy some mountain land within the next five or so years, and I'm trying to get enough savings built up to pay less than $50/month on a compact SUV and still survive well beyond six months off of a salary...so stable is good. Sometimes, I ask myself if I might regret not spending more money on adventures during my twenties, but then I picture bathing in an enormous jacuzzi overlooking a remote lake, and I'm like,
You seem like you have a good approach to relationship conflict. Also, wow, what are you looking to buy land for? Are you going to build a house or something?
