HOLLY SHIT —- FOR FUCK SAKE. Just learned a very valuable lesson, research something before you agree to do it. As we all know I am Austin bound this summer, which I am still a little shaky about, so add to that the fact that I agreed to drive down in order to have my car there, I now come to learn that Austin is 22 FUCKING HOURS away. How the hell did I miss that? Now the smart ass in you wants to ask, “has Austin gotten farther away since you last checked” and “do you make a habit of agreeing to things you have no knowledge of.” And the answer to both is a resounding…FUCK YOU! I don’t know what I was thinking….. other than, my hesitation in going is leading to my hesitation in making rash and uneducated decisions. What to do now, the only thing that can be done — fuel up and hit the road I guess — but still I ask, what the fuck was I thinking. So FYI if you going looking for me during the next few days, I’ll be……

On the road again
Goin’ places that I’ve never been.
Seein’ things that I may never see again
And I can’t wait to get on the road again.
On the road again -
Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway
We’re the best of friends.
Insisting that the world keep turning our way
And our way
is on the road again.

i like you, do you like me? check yes or no

As my date with Austin and TX gets closer and closer - the questions and the uncertainty about this little adventure become sizable. Though at this point there is no turning back, ships are ‘full speed ahead to Austin’. Now the question on my mind is how the hell do you make new friends in a city where you know no one??? I mean it’s not like I can ask the first person I see 'if they want to share my lunch with me, my mom packed me an extra fruit cup.'  so here’s the question I have - as an adult, how the hell do you meet people in strange city without coming off as creepy and semi-stalkerish????? Suggestions????

Texas Bound....

Well, it looks like I am Texas bound this summer and if I sound less than thrilled, it’s because I might be. As indecisive as I am, I haven’t quite figured out if this is a good thing or not. Texas is the LAST place I see myself or that I really want to be, but being unable to make a move of my choice on my own  the choice has been made somewhat made for me. Don’t get me wrong, Austin is a kick ass town, and way cooler than I will ever be, I’m just not sure Austin is me. But who knows, this might turn out to be a great thing - and all in all it can’t be worse than where I am now, so somewhat scared - uncertain - nervous and ambivalent about what’s in store Texas here I come. Show me what you got!
