This is now just a writing blog.

I have decided to dedicate this just to my writing from now on. I write all the time, all day long. I always have. By writing I mean funny stories of events from my life, perhaps some serious ones, fiction, and maybe even the occasional poem. So, if you are interested in that, please continue to follow.

I have another Tumblr that I’ve added many of you on. It will contain pictures and things. Feel free to follow that too!

First story coming soon! It is about a man I once knew called Dave the Thief.

Update on Moving Angst

I figured it out.  I figured out why I am so damn reluctant to move to Austin, and it has nothing to do with not loving Austin.

Basically, I realized that just cause I am moving somewhere, it does not mean that I will be happier, more successful, meet better people, or fall in love.  No, a lot of that has to do with chance and/or hard work.  I guess that is what has been bothering me.  I’ve been putting off trying to meet good people, becoming more successful, and being happier because I’ve just been banking on Austin - the light at the end of the tunnel.  Well, I am almost out of that tunnel and I can see the other side.  While Austin is magical and a much better place to live than Hattiesburg, it is not a solve-all.  

It comes down to laziness.  Yes, I, Maria Newman, am one of the laziest people out there.  I always have been.  If you have ever had the pleasure of seeing my room when it is not clean, you know what I mean.  All this whining and angst comes from the realization that once I move I have to work hard to create my dream life.  People are people wherever you go.  Sure, I will meet some great people.  I already know some awesome people in Austin, BUT, I will meet some not-so-great people too.  I will meet people that want to hurt me and I will have to do my best to avoid drama, and ultimately avoid them.  I will also have to work my ass off to get a good job and to eventually work my way towards becoming a good enough photographer to be fully self-employed.  Most of all, I am going to have to work hard to be happy.  It is a daily commitment you have to make with yourself to see the good in the world and to not let the little things get you down.  It is a hard commitment, but essential to living a good life.

Anyway, that is all I have to say on that topic.  Moving angst over.  I’ve got this.

EDIT: It just occurred to me that it sounded like I was saying I didn’t know ANY good people in Hattiesburg.  That is not true.  I love some of you guys very much and you know who you are.  I just sort of stopped trying to make new friends.
