It\’s incredible how many people frequently accuse me of leading a double or secret life. Well, perhaps not so incredible. I\’ve always felt rather split between aspects of identity; they simply don\’t mesh, particularly with the people who choose to embrace one side. I\’ve met so few people in my life who have seen and welcomed the full picture. How many of us are that lucky? Then again, how many of us literally lead split lives, and not just in instances of adultery?
My second sociology course is finished. I should have my grade back later today. This leaves me with one class left for the rest of the semester, the linguistics course. Three weeks remain, one book left to read, one final paper left to write. It\’s in the proverbial bag, baby, like a Santa sack.
I\’ve started decorating my bordello for the winter holidays, but I\’m saving the tacky tree lighting for the party on December 2. With the condo building issues resolved, the fete will revel, indeed!
Jamie will be here Dec 1-7. Dr Maude returns Dec 13-Jan 10, and his daughter will be with us Dec 23-Jan 7.
Only two questions remain: what to do winter/spring semester after my merry visitors leave, and how to juggle my secret identities while they\’re staying with me. It\’s hard enough when a girl lives alone, but with them about, someone might notice me changing out of one of my various disguises. That, and I don\’t want to be accused of neglecting any one aspect while they are here. But more importantly — what to do about next semester!
