Things are finally settling down here. I'm moving into my new house in the next two weeks, which is much closer to work. Last weekend I went out and found two kittens via the newspaper ads. Two adorable 7 week old, now 2 month old black/brown male kittens.
Been going out every Thursday night to this place called Jammin' Java with Courtney and Jess. I believe it's going to become a weekly event. It's good to go out down here. I'm enjoying myself, and doing something with my life. Amazing huh?
Work has been nuts, I'm doing all the inventory and switching out of old computer system. Putting a whole new server up, with three computers, switching/uploading all the inventory. NUTS!!

Well I gotta jet, have a hot date tonight :-D

Endings don't exist

I was told this before I left home in August.. and now that September is coming to a close, I happened to view that on someones buddy info. Ya know, I believe in away they don't. I still have my friends in my heart, though they are 8 hours away. All the memories (good and bad) are stuck with me till the day I die. Endings don't exist, and I dont think it is possible for them to.

Things that make me happy

Look at that incline..

Randomly searching the blogs today I found this one, GangStories. And with in that blog I found this... which really hit home.

It's one of life's great tragedies that the permanent brands of your own stupidity end up on the backs of the people who love you most.

I hate to think about that. My failures, from my freshman year off highschool, through the senior year. I still feel like I failed my mother...the woman that put up with so much to get me to where my dreams were. Even if my dreams didn't even know where they were going. It didn't matter to her, all that mattered was she got me there. To think at times I left her down when she got me there... Something I will never be able to shake.

Wow I am being really bad at this blog thing since I have no real internet in my house. (Dial up is NOT internet) Things are slowly setting into place down here in SC. Found another place to live since well.. things didn't go as planned at the first place. It's futher from work, but in a great community.
Other than that.. work is great. Kris is great. And umm yeh this post blows.

A Plain Morning
It is yet to be determined,
but the air is thick,
& my hope is feeling worn.
I'm missing home,
& I'm glad you're not a part of this,
there are parts of me that will be missed.
And the phone is always dead to me,
so I can't tell you the temperature is dropping
& it feels like

it is colder than it ought to be in March
& I still have a day or two ahead of me
till I'll be heading home,
into your arms again.
And the people here are asking after you.
It doesn't make it easier.
It doeasn't make it easier to be away.

I'd like to hire a plane.
I'd see you in the morning,
when the day is fresh.
I'm coming home again.
It's warmer where you're waiting.
It feels more like July.
Ther's pillows in their cases
& one of those is mine.
And you wrote the words I love you,
& sprayed it with perfume.
It is better than the fire is
to heat this lonely room.
It is warmer where you're waiting
It feels more like July.

Been in SC for almost two weeks now. Weird that nothing has hit yet, everything seems fine. I miss some of my friends, but mainly because I haven't seen a couple of them (Ginger/Talia) for a good while now. I'm going back in November to Maryland to see my friends.. which makes me happy :o) I still don't have internet at my house so I've been checking my email at Kris' dorm or my work.

Speaking of work. Love it so far. Sure sometimes the guys can be nagging, and piss you off. But it's like the job I've been waiting for. Every shop I've ever been at meant dittly shit compared to this one. Mark that on the list of things that make me happy.

Sure my roommates are annoying, and their dogs all need to be shot. There are flees (which are going bubye when we flee bomb the place) The commute to work isn't too bad, I've enjoyed it thus far. Now only to see what happens in the winter. Hopefully my baby will love me enough to come get my stupid ass in the snow.
Ahh.. yes the gf. We are good, still doing great.. very happy. Etc etc. Any other questions about the move? I miss my mom, and my dog. But other than that and friends, I think this move was what I truely needed.

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat
But always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small
When you stand by the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me you'll give fate a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance
I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Living might mean taking chances
But they're worth taking
Lovin' might be a mistake
But it's worth making
Don't let some hell bent heart
Leave you bitter
When you come close to selling out
Give the heavens above
More than just a passing glance.....

And so a new beginning is at my door.. and the next time I look, my house is no longer my home. My mom is no longer in charge as much as she was, and I'm all grown up...
