Why I've Not Been Updating.

Yeah, I'm still unpacking...
I'm nearly finished though, and hey! I've got a dresser, bed, bookcase and a desk now!

Check out my wicked Scott Pilgrim poster.


But, hey... progress is progress. I've registered at Houston Community College and I already have 30 credits done from Phoenix so, I should be finished there in just this year depending on how my classes transfer over. I've still got to file my FAFSA but, once that goes through, I'll sign up for my classes which will start in the fall. I'm still looking for a job. I've got the money to get me through until my next revenue sharing check in August so, that's good. Means I can get by for a couple months. If I get enough funding for school, I may not get a job at all or just stick with something part time.

I went to my first Houston party last night. It was tons of fun but, I drank too much. Well, I drank too much on an empty stomach and woke up with a bitch of a hangover. It was a costume party and I went as The Penguin, thus the new profile picture on most of the sites I use.

Other than unpacking and getting to know my roommates friends, not much has really been going on. I've got a new project that I can't really talk about yet. I will when I have more information but, I'm hungry so that's where this post ends.

Unpacking*

*this is not a metaphor... maybe it is...


I moved to Houston. I left Auberry on Wednesday, May 26th. I spent two days in San Francisco then drove down to Phoenix. I stayed in Phoenix for nearly three days and then made my way towards Houston. Because I left so late Monday night, I only made it to New Mexico. I drove the rest of the way on Tuesday and arrived at my new home in Houston a little after 5am Wednesday morning.

Then, I slept. Though, not too long. Wednesday afternoon I had lunch with my friend Chris. We sat at the diner for a few hours and talked. It was great to catch up with someone I hadn't seen in such a long time.

Between my last post and now I've had a pretty eventful couple of months though, nothing I really want to go over. Family drama is still going strong and though I feel as if I'm deserting the not crazy parts of my family, it is for my own sanity. I was slowly losing little bits of myself. I can list reasons to why I left Auberry, there are a lot... or, at least... I have a lot of reasons that I use in place of what may or may not be the truth. I haven't decided yet. The opportunity arose for me to leave and so, I did.

Yesterday was my 22nd birthday. I received quite a few birthday wishes and had a nice dinner with my new roommates. I got phone calls from family singing me 'Happy Birthday!' and texts from many of my friends. This year is better than last year but, I can't help but feel a little melancholy. Perhaps it's because of the move, I've never lived so far away from my family before.

Anyway, it's now 4:30 in the morning and I need to get some sleep. I might add to this later. Probably not though.
