There have been a lot of changes in my life recently. Mostly bad changes but I'm trying to focus on the distant future when all of the bad will be out of the way. In the mean time, I've been, at best, sporadic about the daily tasks that make me feel better. For example, I've been drinking sodas again. It's not really a big deal if you look at it from a perspective of longevity. As in, I've had them my whole life and I took a break from them and sometime in the future I'll take a longer, hopefully permanent break from them.
I remember standing in my mother's kitchen in Albuquerque, watching her drop the little plastic liner into my Playtex bottle and fill it with Pepsi. It's always been there and it's my comfort food. Some people "need" their coffee, I "need" my brown soda. If it were the occasional pick-me-up, I would probably be OK, but I've always over-consumed my sodas. I would get in trouble for drinking a case a day or worse before I realized the negative impact it has had on my health.
I was in my twenties before I would drink a glass of water. I'm glad to say I enjoy water now, but I'm pretty picky. I want clean tasting water. I'll drink tap water but I will put a flavor packet into it. I still won't drink a glass of milk and only this year have I learned to like sweet tea. It's not a lot better than soda, especially not the oh-so-good extra sweet tea, but it's a monumental step in the right direction for me.
So, here I sit, coke flavored Slurpee in hand, and a little calmer than I would be without it.
I'm back for now, thanks to Bryon's suggestion, after a four year break from journaling. I'm in Abilene, Tx now. Hope to hear from you all soon!
Well I'm single. As hard as it was to get to the point where I was ok with that statement; I'm finally at a point where I think I can have some fun with this. So I think I'll blog about it. If you don't want to read it please skim over this blog and just call me to see how I'm doing. Here is where the good and the bad parts of dating and being single will merge into bloggy goodness. Who knows, maybe I won't date for a while and this is all about ice cream and loneliness. But then again...
Seth McFarland has set up a screening of family guy to people who haven't seen it and filmed them talking shit about the show to him, not letting them know he is the creator. Then he put it on as an intro segment to the show's 100th episode. He's made them look like fools. I really hope this is fake or that they are well paid to look like asses to the family guy fans.
I'm trying to raise money to move to Colorado Springs Co. It's the most ideal of my options.
Much larger town.
Not close to my home town (not ready to go back yet)
The Lindgrens are great.
More jobs with higher pay.
Lots of colleges.
Plently of pet friendly rentals.
Living on my own, no roomies, just me and my bad ass pup.
Close enough to Matt to visit when the time calls for it.
Closer to visit Texas...and Arizona...and Tennessee...and most other places.
Will probably blog more being on my own with my own thoughts and actually having to deal with them ack! ;)
Four Seasons...as in snow in the winter and swimming in the summer
Still not near to Bryon, although near-er
State taxes that don't seem to go any friggin where
Colleges are hella expensive
Getting new plates/dl/ etc
Apartment living with a puppy aka no back yard or doggie door
I get more seasonal allergies there but still lesser so than Texas
All in all, it seems like the best choice. So that's my goal. I am lucky enough to have a back up plan with a great friend and an aunt in Tx. I'm just trying for the place with the most pros in my mind. Any suggestions?
Thanks Ruthie. I know I cheated with lots of questions. I just kind of exploded with curiosity.
This entry has hurt someone's feelings that i care deeply about. I did not intend any harm whatsoever. So I'm deleting it to prevent further harm. Sorry again.
