Progress.

Hello Non-Existent Reader, 

It's just the non-existent writer here. I've been working full-time (yay!), in school (sigh), and busy in general. 

I haven't written much in my journal or in my ongoing story. 

But I'm slowly getting back to it. I took a ten month break from writing stories when I waited tables and lived at home. I didn't blog because it would have been daily updates of "My Life is Not Where I Want It To Be and No Matter How Much I Try, Nothing Is Changing."

I even stopped writing letters for a period of time. 

Luckily, I've started writing letters again. I'm slowly getting back into the habit of writing. I am trying not to watch too much Netflix. 

I am sort of exercising again (I do crunches when I watch tv). My diet has slightly improved. 

My sense of direction, thanks to the Phoenix Grid System, has drastically improved. It's just a matter of undoing 20+ years of winding, crazy Tidewater road system. 

I'm a constant work in progress.

Well

Hello Non-Existent Reader!

I've been so busy.

But good busy.

New job, back to school, adventure.

I'll write soon, I promise.

I know, it's what they all say.

And the page remains blank.

But me, I keep my promises.

I'll continue to write.

Trust me.

I have lots to say.

The Adventure.

Hello Non-Existent Reader,

Remember when this happened?

Yup


Well, I did it. 

I went out west for an interview. Drove on the desert (because the GPS told me to). 

Always get an Exit Row.

One week later (on a Wednesday), I received a phone call offering me a job. 

That Friday, with my mother, I set out on a 2300 mile adventure. I brought the essentials with me:
  • All my clothing 
  • Shoes
  • A full set of 34-year-old cutlery
  • Baking Sheet
  • Spatula
  • Can opener
We saw many things on our very long drive, including: 

  • Graceland (Memphis, Tennessee)
  • The Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial (Oklahoma City, OK) 
It was a very powerful memorial.

  • Cadillac Ranch (Amarillo, TX) 
  • The Petrified Forest (Northeastern AZ) 
  • Sedona (Sedona, AZ)
My mother. In the vortex. Good Vibes.
It's another chapter in my crazy life.

So...

Hello Non-Existent Reader,

I'm definitely the non-existent writer.

So, I moved really far away. I did it.

I left Hampton Roads.

I got a job in the Southwest!

17A

Hello Non-Existent Reader,

I've never been good with directions. I've ignored the proper routes to go the one that "felt right." I've gotten lost so many times, it's almost ridiculous. I've always found my way home.

No matter how far away I was, I when I saw exit 17A on the highway, I knew home was nearby.

Until yesterday.

My parents sold the house.

I still live in the same city, but exit 17A no longer takes me home.

It's strange how one little thing can make such an impact.

This Life

Hello Non-Existent Reader,

I'm going back to school (for real this time). I'm doing a Technical Writing program (online) with an accredited university.

I'll have two degrees.

Also, I'm moving into an apartment (with my parents). Because I am poor and can't afford my own place (yet). Le sigh.

Looking Fine.

Hello Non-Existent Reader,

It's time for a break from the depressing blog updates.

Here's how I used to look:
That Hair! That Clean Apartment!

I look like this now: 
Troll Hair and Wrinkles.
