I've aged five years in as many months.

Finally got an apartment in WuDaoKou, the uni district in the northwest of central Beijng. It's cheap, it's on the ground floor, and it's near the subway, but it's sorta filthy, and I had to borrow a lot of money to pay the deposit. Ah well. What's most important is that now I have a base of operations and I can finally unwind a little bit.

I might even get a computer out of the deal. The outbound occupant has no room for a fast desktop with a busted monitor. My updates could soon become more frequent.

Nadine took off for Inner Mongolia. So I've been out of sorts. We were just good pals, but I do have a tendency to let my friendships drift into dangerously intimate territory. And although she is one of those exceptional and amusingly depraved persons I am apt to find myself finding my self in, I think this time I know better.

I don't want to fuck things up with Soi, either, although I have my doubts about how long I can maintain a long distance relationship. I'm not worried about her; she's a helluva lot more patient than I am, and I'll never be the suspicious type. But I'm beginning to acknowledge that I really am quite the flirtatious bastard. And as always, I can be so surprised that anyone would want to get close to a monsterous freak like me that I have difficulty saying 'no' even if that's what I really want.

I started smoking. Sort of. I bought a pack of cigarettes just to offer folks 'cuz that's just common courtesy here in the Bei of Jing. But now I smoke at bars occasionally. Because I'm cool like that.

Those cigs almost certainly have their hooks in ya by now.
