My New Place

I moved in this weekend. Gosh I'm tired. But it looks really good, I've got a lot of stuff put away already. It doesn't really feel like home yet, but its very comfortable. Maybe now I can start sleeping soundly at night again. I don't want to stress anymore.

money money money

So if I have X amount of dollars in my bank account, and have to make my security deposit Y and first month's rent Z, while still at the same time make utility payments A and B while still having enough money left over to make a second security deposit C, and X does not equal Y + Z + A + B + C, but I am getting paid this week with my salary Q, is X + Q greater than the sum of Y, Z, A, B, and C?

Choir Concert

Tonight I went to Lyle's choir concert. It was most excellent. A quartet of professional singers backed up by a full orchestra and a 130 person choir. The piece was Verdi's "Requiem". That is really how music is supposed to sound. Hearing a full array of man's ability to create music was most excellent. That's all I really have to say about that right now though.

You know....

I don't think I ever told everyone that I got the job here at Murray Station. Starting on July 1st, I am the new Resident Manager of Murray Station Apartments. This gets me 850 dollars off of rent in Stephanie's old 2 bedroom apartment. That is really nice, because she has a HUGE backyard. I'm very excited. This also means that I'm not going to be living in a house next year. More good news however, is that Sean and Paul decided they would take the other room and split the 550 that I would otherwise have to pay to get the apartment I want. So I get my roomates back next year too. I was actually really worried that what was going to happen is that I was going to get the job and then they were going to get a house and I wouldn't have roomates. I was not looking forward to that. They kind of grow on you. In a good way. I think.

It's already getting close to Kim and Mine's 10 month anniversary. Time is really flying by fast. Speaking of Kim. She is going to be moving in to her new place at the end of the month. They found a really nice condo for a really good price just down the street from Murray. So it's really cool. She's going to be so much happier living here in SLO. I love her. Bye.

Fruit is good

Sometimes I think that I'm the only person around here who likes fresh food. Like fruit. Fruit is good. Strawberries expecially. And fresh juicy pears. Mmmmmm....

Excuse me while I go eat some more fruit....

Ok, Myles likes fruit too. So I guess its okay.

By the way, I have a new place to live!! Yay!!! we signed the lease this weekend. Let's eat some fruit to celebrate!

Vocabulary lesson

Jig n.

1. Any of various lively dances in triple time.
2. To dance or play a jig.
3. To move or bob up and down jerkily and rapidly.
4. A joke or trick.

I said earlier that Squirrelpower was "jigging down the road". Above are the dictionary's definitions, most of which do get across the general idea I was trying to convey. Mostly I was using the word in reference to what horses do when they don't want to walk quietly down the trail, and instead jump and prance every which way except the one that you want them to go. Horse people call this annoying behavior "jigging".

Class dismissed.

Wildflower

Well I went to Wildflower, and surprisingly it was a lot more fun that I was anticipating it was going to be. It was nice to be outdoors again. I haven't done anything like that in a really long time. It was so cool I got what is called beach city parking and that means that I get to park right over near where we were camping so I could sleep in my car if I wanted to! Which I did. I had a lot of wine on Sat after cooking and Chris Smith once again told me that I'm not allowed to drink. I don't know what his problem is, everyone else thought I was funny. I don't like it that certain people have a problem with me when I'm drunk. Oh well. Ce la vie. (or something like that).


On another topic my roomate has convinced me to go to Las Vegas with him for our birthdays. Lyle is going with us too. It should be a lot of fun, even though it's a lot more money than I wanted to spend. I really wanted to spend that money on some new fencing equipment, but maybe I can hint at that for my birthday.... That would be good. Ok that's all for now. bye.

The dreaded manual... dum dum dum....

As if I hadn't been through enough lately, my car had a flat tire this morning. Wonderful. So I took my first solo flight in Squirrelpower, Myles' Metro. I don't think that car likes me... though it might have something to do with the fact that I don't really know how to drive a manual transmission... yeah that might have something to do with it. So I actually managed to drive all the way to SLO and not kill myself. Yay! But I am going to have to figure out how to make the car stop jigging down the road like it was doing this morning... yeah...

please no more...

I just finished my anatomy exam, the last one before the final. What a grueling test. I have no idea how I did, but I think I passed... maybe... I hope... yeah.

I told myself when I started this semester that I wasnt going to do what I always do, which is mainly goof off and not study. See, I have this ability to go to class and just do the work in class, not study or review, and still walk in to an exam and pass the test. I can't decide if it's a blessing or a curse, because I get moderate grades, passing grades, but I know it's not my best. I know that if I actually gave school a little bit of effort I could do really really well. But I don't try, because I know that even if I don't study I can still get by. But its mediocre. I don't like that. And yet I still keep doing what I did this whole past month, which is NOT trying my best. I just barely did the bare minimum of required work, and I could have done so much better. Oh well. It's almost over now. I don't ever want to take this class again. I want to take something nice and easy this summer. Like maybe an art or music class. If I can make it go along with my work schedule, that would be nice. Something light, something enjoyable. *sigh* I'm so tired.

On the non-school side of things, I think we might have found a place to live this summer. Yay! A condo for 1000 per month, all utilities paid. Sweet. I am so sick and tired of apartment shopping you have no idea. Its worse than clothes. But this one's really nice, and it's in a safe neighborhood, which is important to me. I will have to get used to that darn train going by each night, though... but I think I can deal with it. It will be nice to not have to drive the grade 6 times a week. Real nice. I am so exhausted today, I really should have stayed the night in SLO last night, but it just couldn't happen. So I drove home, lay unconscious on my bed for a few hours, and then had to get up early and drive another 30 minutes so I could be at work on time. That's a whole hour I spent driving that I could have been sleeping. I know that sounds whiny, I don't really want to complain. I have a great place where I'm living now in Templeton. I'm just so tired. I spend way too much time driving late at night feeling completely exhausted. I'm scared that I'm going to get into an accident one of these days. I don't want that. So I'll try living in SLO. If it doesn't work out, or I'm still not happy, I'll deal with that as the need arises.

So there's the scoop on the major happenings of my life. Further updates to follow as new information becomes available...

denial

Just because I am blogging a lot it doesn't mean I am really that into it. I'm still not enjoying this. I'm fighting this tooth and nail. Really, I am. Really.
