Well it has been a long time since I last wrote. A lot has happened including me moving to Florida. I moved to Florida in May to live with my friends son and his girlfriend. I won't say it was a "mistake" but more of a learning experience. The first month was great then like any honeymoon period it just got progressively worse. He became addicted to coke and she became pregnant. Not a good combination.
Living with a coke head was an interesting experience to say the least. I could sleep anytime during the day I wanted uninterrupted, but if I wanted to sleep at night forget it. Every night the same thing would happen a fight and slamming doors and the tv on until all hours of the night. Eventually, I had to move out and I moved in with two guys in their 40's. They are both rockers and very cool and laid back. We get a long great we have a cool cat named Brandon or B RAN depending on his mood. I was never a cat person until I met this cat he is more like a dog than a cat. See above picture. Awesome cat.
I have a boyfriend now he is 43 and a psychologist. I love him a lot and I have finally found that happiness that I have been searching for, for so long. I work as a computer programmer now. Not a path I would have necessarily chosen for myself, but alas it is what I am doing. I miss travel a lot, but I have Palm trees now in January!
Sometimes I get away with not writing in here because I write on myspace. But lately when people ask to be added to my myspace and they are co workers I feel kinda like I have to censor myself. Yes I know I started that last sentence with a but so deal with it. :P So therefore I think I am going to start writing in here again. Either that or get another myspace page. Ooo secretive. LOL.
Anyhow, I feel really not at peace right now. I sort of feel lonely and in need of friends. That's not to say that the friends I have aren't great, because they are but something is missing. I want a bigger group I guess you could say. People who are single that want to do stuff. You know how for awhile your friends sort of are living the same kind of life you are living and then you get older and shit changes. People get pregnant and get in long term relationships and make their own families. Its just weird growing up. When I was little I couldn't wait to grow up and now I wish I could sort of turn back the dial a bit. Not too far back mind you I still want to be able to legally drink. Hey some things are important! I have to write this piece for my work newsletter. Yeah I am a "writer" for our newsletter. In fact so far I think I have two or three published pieces in there. Go me! My new "assignment" gee I am loving those quotes aren't I? Pretty soon I will turn into Britney Spears and start "air quoting". Anyhow moving on my next assignment is to do an interview with the three people at my work who have been there the longest. So far out of the three virtual interviews I have sent I have received ONE response. Considering my deadline for the outline was 9/13 it is a wee bit late. HOWEVER, in my defense it isn't my fault if these people won't get back to me. I am nagging my bosses boss every time I see him to answer my email. To which he replies "oh yeah I gotta do that" proceeded by laughter. This is not a game people I got a deadline I hate holding people up! Gah. I wonder if Dan Rather has these issues. Not to say that I am Dan Rather but you know what I mean.
Oh and I have been activly looking for a dog. Yeah I know do I really want one? Yes! I have since I was a kid. I think I was seriously denied as a child because I was not allowed to have pets. Well guess what you kill one fish and someone holds it against you for life? I mean I was five I didn't know what overfeeding was. Sheesh some people!
Well enough rambling for now. Perhaps I will write again later if the mood strikes me.
Tally Ho! (*disclaimer*) I always wanted to say that and now I have so that's that.
SO yeah I have literally spent the last like 5 YEARS of my life trying to find a pair of zip up tall boots that fit just right. My quest has taken me to Canada and back a couple of times different states etc.
Today I found them in brown I might add. I don't own a single shoe in brown so I feel great about my purchase. I am so happy I may sleep in them.
If I ruled the world..
Good track I miss old school hip hop. The Fugees were/are some good shit.
So week in review I turned 29 and started my final year of my twenties. On Wednesday I went out to dinner with Noelle and we got into a discussion about what people do in their twenties. She said something that kind of made sense. She said in our twenties we are kind of searching for what we want to do, where we want to go in life etc. In our thirties we go about achieving those goals. I'd say that is about right. I pretty much know where I want my life to head. Now it's just getting there.
I look forward to traveling more this year, and meeting more new and interesting people. I am excited about tonight I think it will be nice to be with everyone have some drinks (I won't saw a few because it is ME) after all. Note to self: GIVE MICHELLE HER DAWSONS CREEK it has only been in my desk for what 7 months or so..
On that note WTF is up with Tom Cruise. I think he has lost his mind..and apparently I am not the only one who thinks this. His behavior is just..odd. I seriously beleive he is brainwashing Katie Holms. Poor girl..RUN FAR FAR AWAY.
Next subject: Aruba Girl
Does anyone else think besides me that if she was not an affluent, good looking, white girl this story would not even be covered? Yeah me too.
Ok on that note regardless of her wealth, looks and/or race she was just plain stupid. I think when people go on vacation something happens between the sun, tradewinds and drinks that make some people lose all of their common sense. When you go on vacation one would think you would use the same caution with strangers that you would at home. AKA don't leave your friends to go off with THREE guys to god knows where. Your in another country your not even on your home turf they have the homefield advantage. At least at home if someone was taking me to a bad section of Boston i'd know it was a bad section and something was up. That said, people say oh well she was young. I am sorry at 18 I had enough common sense to know DON'T GO OFF WITH STRANGE DUDES ON A TROPICAL ISLAND. I think the Aruban police and people have been so kind considering the circumstances.
They are known for their general goodness anyhow but this just proves it. In what other country would you see the Prime Minister hugging the mother of a girl that was missing? In other countries missing people is just something that happens it wouldn't take priority over anything. The government would not be giving people the day off to go look for the person (like in Aruba). What the news isn't really focusing on is that Aruba IS ONE of the SAFEST places to vacation. If you look at their statistics two murders and three rapes in 6 months. That is not bad considering here that can happen in a day or a few hours.
Common sense people common sense.

Weather: Cloudy and 78
This morning the weather was cloudy when I woke up so we sat around the house until the afternoon. Then we got dressed and went down route 40 to Flaggler Beach and Ormond Beach. We got to drive right along the water and brought the dog.
They took me to Sonic, which I have never been to before its a drive up where they deliver your food on roller skates?! Eh I'm not talented enough to do that. Everyone looks at this dog it's like your riding along with a celebrity. People stop their cars and talk to you all the time it's weird. I was holding on to said dog for a second and Cassandra walked away with his bowl BAD mistake I went flying over some metal thing in the ground that dog has power. After supper we walked along the beach for awhile and picked up shells and ran the dog. It was nice. I love being near the ocean.
/end day two

Today we got up and went to Crecent Beach. Beautiful beach people can drive right on. The people down in this section for the most part are hillbillies. They drive on the beach in their hoopties no hubcab peice of crap cars. Lovely.
The beach itself was nice lots of cool shells which I collected. I am going to get some more the next time I go. I haven't seen any cool fish yet but I plan on it. We went to dinner at Longhorn Steakhouse. Yes I eat meat and I am PROUD. Proud I say! MOO. Then we were going to go to St. Augustines, which is the oldest city in the USA but we got caught in the.worst.rain.ever. I am not shitting when I say worst.rain.ever. It was raining so much and hailing that it sounded like gunshots hitting the car. But alas we made it home safely ahead of the storm! I felt like we were in twister outrunning the tornado. It was so weird how we DROVE out of the storm but you could see it following us.
