Okay I got a ton of emails asking when we are returning and why we went on hiatus.
1. Hiatus was due to some security measures that my guru friend needed a little bit of time to take care of, we are now secure.
2. Finallllly back and so sorry for the delay. I hateeeee pauses in content.
Luckily, not tooooo much has happened in the absence of LINARC.
Podcast equipment was backordered so that should be arriving this week, HOOOORAH. I am actually considering transitioning to the podcast 100% and leaving the blogging behind.
Whats new in the world of Elle?
I have been really focused on giving XF chances to not drive me bat shit insane and it's been going pretty well.
We got drunk one night and had insanely good sex so that was a giant relief to know IT IS FUCKING POSSIBLE!
Since that night though...it's been pretttttty bland.
Too bad alcoholism is a real thing or else I'd insist he rip shots on an empty stomach before we hookup. I kid, I kid.
So he's been okay. We've seen a little bit of each other and it's been good. I said on March 20th lets give this a 30 days trial run and see how we do.
We are 14 days away from completion so basically 50/50 mark and it's been fine. There is still stuff to work on but I think around the 3 year mark of dealing with anyone, you run into things you need to work on.
I am doing a lot of self development work. Taking a writing course, a business class, and a social media marketing course. I am getting spin instructor certified on Saturday. I am about five minutes away from my student loans being paid off 100% (Monday, Monday, Monday). I was supposed to be done in August but I said fuck it, I want this done now and I pulled a buncha $ together and sent it off. Feels good even though my bank account looks so sad.
So anyways, I've been working on myself ALOT in 2017. XF called the other night and asked what I was upto. I said I'm working on my writing course and he laughed and rolled his eyes.
Ummmm...How is me improving my skill set laughable? If we do this forever I need to know you will be my #1 supporter. What the fuck was that? So naturally I ended the convo quickly and got back to what I was doing.
His stupid eye roll is nothing I am not used to but it really pissed me off. So I texted him and was like, that was some bullshit - not all of us are trust fund kids who had all the education they wanted handed to them on a silver fucking platter - I'd loveeeee an MBA but these student loans from undergrad were beast enough that I refuse to get into debt again - don't be a dick head.
He felt really bad and kept saying how he is so proud of me and impressed by me. Well bozo, actions speak louder than words. Get on my team or go the fuck away - once and for all.
Arash is still driving my absolutely fucking insane. He was gone for two weeks for work which was SO NICE! I went apartment shopping for something for myself and enjoyed every second of quiet time. I think our living situation has run its course. I am torn because I do like my apartment, moving is a bitch and the price is so, so good here. But on the other hand, I am ready to live solo and do me again. IDK what I'll end up doing but I need to decide soon.
Oh and the Urban Dater published our shoe story but they edited the fuck out of it and it doesn't sound like me/is really stupid now so I don't recc. reading it. Super fail Urban Dater, super fail. (the link is tweeted if you are interested)
I have some Mia updates coming your way and a giant story from Megan that I am contemplating saving for the podcast because it's fucking insanity.
So happy to be back.
Talk to ya tomorrow. (or maybe later today)
PS I am also on another infamous tinder hiatus until April 20th. Giving XF some real attention for the month.
