Okay just kidding about the subject. I just find it funny how many people do “WOOT! First post!”, or “First page!”, or something of the sort. So I thought I’d poke some fun at it with my first blog here.
So this is my first official blog. I have done a blog by hand on my website, but this is the first blog software I’ve used. So hello to everyone out there who reads this.
My life right now is a bit messed up at the moment. On my birthday, Dec 2nd, I began the move from Mass to Georgia. As such, I had to leave the job I loved. Now I’m still unemployed and miles away from where I grew up. Even my boyfriend Giuliano is still unemployed after having to leave his job he had here in GA. We couldn’t buy any presents for the holidays. We have to watch our money and make it stretch as far as possible. We’re staying at the house of a friend of Giuliano’s. And we have to wait to move into our first house until late January or Feb 1st at the latest. I feel like I’m stuck between two worlds right now, the world I left, and the world awaiting me when we move into the house.
It’s odd staying at someone else’s house for an extended amount of time. It’s compounded by the fact I’m the only woman at the house. I’m surrounded by guys (computer geeks) and their chatting about their interests. The fridge has a box of beer and tall cans and bottles of other kinds of beer. At least my boyfriend Giuliano and I make our keep by helping to clean up after other people staying here and buying supplies (food, drink, etc). Don’t worry, we get reimbursed for what we buy for the house. Now I am grateful for Mike (Giuliano’s friend) for offering us a place to stay. Still there are times I feel like I’m in the way. There isn’t much I can do about it though until at least one of us gets a job.
The only thing I’m happy about is the weather around here. Giuliano and I are walking around in short-sleeves almost ever day. People around must think that we are strange. I see people in long-sleeves and jackets, while we are basking in the 50 degree weather. Compared to the New England winter weather I’m used to, this is great.
Well I think I’ll end this blog entry as “Who’s Line is it Anyway?” is on TV now and dinner is ready. I’ll try to add more blogs soon. If I don’t post another blog before 2004, I hope you all have a happy and safe new year.
