Zubby Newsletter – March 1, 2001

The adventure continues…

If I could describe the last week and a bit, then I wouldn’t have to type a paragraph like this explaining why I can’t describe the last week and a bit. Needless to say, it’s been indescribable 🙂

February rocketed past me and yet it was an incredible time of growth, change and decision. There have been lots of little moments, leading to what looks to be a wonderful summer in my future.

First, the announcement from my brother:
“Just a quick note to let you know that Heather and I are parents to Jennifer Lynn-Ann Zubkavich. She was born at 11:22PM Tuesday night (Feb 27, 2001). The baby weighed 7 lbs. 4 ounces.”

My Uncle Iain had video footage of the baby posted on the web within hours. Seeing everyone there and having them talking to me on a little pixilated video file gave me quite a rush. I guess his techno-obsession has its advantages 🙂

I may be heading home for Easter weekend to be there when the baby is christened. Joe and I are still working out the details of the trip. After all the trials and tribulations, Joe’s earned the right to change dirty diapers and I’m very proud of him. He’s a far braver man than I.

Second, I may have secured a new place to live on April 1st. I’ll have confirmation on Monday. Needless to say, I’m excited and scared at the change. When the dust settles, I think everyone will be pleased for me. It’s a quiet place about 3 blocks from my current locale with easy transit access and a great environment for me to do some personal projects and enjoy the neighborhood. Wish me luck as the landlord checks my references and lets me know.

Third, the night course is over and I finally have my evenings back. A real sleep schedule and social life shall follow soon.

Fourth, a follow up to the relationship-talk that was in my last Newsletter. In classic Zub-style, things are more complicated then they seemed. It’s not a bad thing at all, I’ve just got to find out where it’ll all fit together. I may not “get the girl” in a classic literary sense, but I have learned some more important things about myself.

This is the first time I’ve been this comfortable about a relationship or a person I was interested in. No pressure or fear, just a good bond of communication and understanding. It’s reflected the confidence I’ve felt recently in just about everything going on around me. The confidence I feel isn’t a shield or a defensive mechanism against the hammers of the world. It’s a really good balance that’s washed over me throughout this last month. It feels good, and it feels like it’ll last.

So, to end this cerebral Newsletter off on an appropriate note: I had Chinese Food with a really close friend. We talked about the future and what was in store. When it was all done, the facts in front of me were plain to see:
