Smell like Teen Spirit

With the lights out it’s less dangerous
Here we are now
Entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now
Entertain us

Over a period of eight months I have moved five times. The first three moves were quite unpleasant. I moved out of my apartment in Draper to live with my friend Jon and his sister up in Salt Lake City. That lasted for a week. The landlord kicked Jon and me out for no apparent reason. So I lived in a motel for a while. Then my good friend “Handy” Andy and his parents took me into their home under the pretense that I would be moving out in 2 months. And I did. I moved too Vale, Oregon. I don’t need to mention anything else about Oregon except it was so nice to leave that house in Vale for the last time. Getting all of Alexis’ things packed in the back of her grandpa’s truck was its own adventure.

Since I got this great Job at DirecTV, I needed to move to Boise, ID. Commute was killing me, and my roommate who was also working in Boise. So we decided to find a place out in Boise, and we did, and here we all are.

I do not like writing in my journal when I don’t have much to complain about. Heh. Things are going so good right now I’m not sure what to do with myself. Job is awesome. Money coming in is enough to take of the things that I need to take care of like rent, bills, internet, and cable (including a little extra rent to help out my roommates). I bought a washer and a dryer (They are piles of crap, but they work, barely) I am currently saving up to upgrade my computer, get a nice big TV and eventually I hope to have enough money to either get my car working better or buy a new one (I have a feeling that it would cost about the same)

I was making more per hour in Utah, and could never accomplish this. I don’t know why exactly that is, but I’m sure smoking the herb had something to do with it. Now that I’m clean I have so much more motivation to excel at my job and save money, and just plain do what I need to be doing.

I love it. I have found my niche in Boise. Maybe location has less to do with it and maybe it has more to do with timing. Any way you look at it, timing or location, I’m here, right now, and I don’t think I need to be anywhere else.
