Oh Hai Interwebs!

I'm suffering from lack-of-computer-time-itis i think, I just spent about 4 hours staring at the interwebs, reading a ton of blogs, looking at hair color reviews, shopping for mood rings and goggles, and checking my schedule for classes that start wednesday.

It's strange. it doesn't feel like weeks since I've been on, but it has been. Sorry I haven't been around! I'm trying to adjust to this new schedule. I'm still waking up at 7 because that's when I got up for my day job, but then i fall back asleep until 10 or sometimes 11. it's kinda bumming me out. I'm looking forward to school starting again. I'll still have the bizzarro bar/food service schedule, but it will put some order in to my life. hopefully then I can start doing productive things again and not laying around and watching 8 episodes of Futurama in a day and eating pizza.

The new job has been going really well. I'm making pretty decent money (More than I was at the desk job it seems) and its flexible. I hate that sometimes I wont see Adam for a day or two, but we're making a point to do date nights when I don't work, and that makes up for it.

We're also planning for a vacation in October. We're going out to Portland with friends of ours! I'm so excited! I've never been to the west coast, but I love everything that I see and read online. Plus, we've been talking about moving out of Maryland for a long time. I don't want to jinx it, but I think this vacation might be a bit of a scouting tour! I'm really tired of the HORRIBLE traffic and crime and violence and drugs. The job market is terrible, no one wants to pay, yet our housing market is INSANELY inflated. We paid over a hundred and sixty thousand dollars for our house. It's a semi-detached. We spent almost two hundred thousand on a trumped up townhouse. And that's nothing out of the ordinary here.

I'm looking forward to living somewhere that's green, not concrete. That doesn't have rampant murders and drug use, mostly by children under 20.  I'm looking forward to going somewhere that doesn't make me shudder at the thought of having children.

I love my city, but twenty six years here has made me harder and angrier than I ever want to be. I want to live somewhere soft now.

wow. so there's my little impromptu rant!

Anywho, I have a bunch of pictures from the new camera, but I can't find my card reader. Grr!! As soon as I find it, I'll have stuff posted!

Thanks!! I'm glad I'm back too! :D

And doesn't it?!? I'm just so excited I could pop! I can't wait to take a bazillion pictures. It still doesn't feel real that I'm finally actually going, hehe
