To New Beginnings

This is my first photobooth picture session in a long time. I actually haven't used the Photoshop on my MacBook in a really long time (I've just been using my version on my computer at work (for work stuff.... blah)). I took the afternoon off from work to take care of arranging the moving company to get all of my stuff from the Northeast down to my new apartment in Houston. Speaking of the new apartment... I get my keys tomorrow and start moving in! I am extremely excited to move into my own place, I also have furniture being delivered in Saturday as well. I think I'm going to be purchasing a new LED TV then as well, so some exciting stuff is happening right now! I am really looking forward to making this place my own, it's going to be super cool. I'm going to paint one of my walls with chalkboard paint so it'll look a little something like this:

Tomorrow night I am going to see the band Phoenix and then on Sunday is the first of three Dr. Dog shows I am going to!! Life is pretty good right now, to be honest, and am very grateful for the people I have around me. I am going to miss my buddy Trevor who is heading back to Toronto tomorrow. We have basically spent every day together for the past three months so it's going to definitely be an adjustment to my lifestyle. We go to work together, then work together and talk all day, then head home together and grab dinner together, hang out together, listen to music, talk about music, girls, fashion, everything. It's been a great relationship since I've known him. I'm so glad that we were placed together. I don't think it could have worked out any better. He's such an easy going cool dude... most if not all Canadians I've met are awesome people. Why is that??? All I can say is that look out passport, you are getting renewed soon, and I am going to Toronto, Canada for the first time, and not the last time, in my life. We are having a big last night throw down for him tonight at our regular hang out bar place near us. Everyone will be there. It's going to be a blast. An appropriate goodbye for the Muckle Man.

I am doing some laundry, going to grab some dinner, and finish up a few things before the night begins. Right now I'm listening to Nada Surf on vinyl and drinking some green tea. I just made a pot of coffee and threw it in a pitcher to cool down in the ice box. Mmmm for some tasty iced coffees. Speaking of coffees I found this super cool indie cafe / coffee shop in the Montrose area of Houston that Trevor and I went to the other night. The menu is great, really good healthy items, lots of veggies and stuff, and great coffee drinks. Cool vibe, good music, neat area. I think I'm finding my spots in this new city of mine...

This has to be the longest lag in posts I've done since I started this thing a few years ago. I am nearing my 3 month mark here in Houston, TX and that also means my time here for the bootcamp is over as well. I am moving into my own apartment at the end of this week, on Friday, so I'm very excited for that. I have been keeping busy with work, always something happening, some fire to put out. Because it is the end of the 3 month period my roommate Trevor is going back to Canada and it's been great, he will definitely be missed. I'd like to plan a trip to visit him in Toronto later this summer.

I'm writing on here to get back to it. To get back to writing it out, thinking about things, and expressing thoughts. I am definitely guilty of ignoring it. Not putting the time in. I hope to have more time to focus on things once I get out of this apartment and into my own place. I spend nearly every minute with Trevor doing things, so Tomorrow Never Knows ends up being an afterthought once things happen that I'd like to write about. It's not like I need to make excuses to you why I don't write on here, but I do anyway. I mean, I'm not sure if anyone will even read this anyway. But yet I still do it. It's like books. I like them. I like to like them. I want to be a person who reads books. Is knowledgeable about stuff in books, but I have a hard time staying interested in it the whole way through. I have about two or three books that I've started and haven't finished. After I finish on here I'm going to lay in bed and pick one back up.

I always try to do better for myself, and to be honest, I've done okay. I'm better than I was. But still not perfect. Things are good though and will only keep getting better. So in closing, lets stay in touch, I will do better to talk it out.
