With all that I have to cover, who wants to bet this is gonna be the shortest journal ever?
Well, let's get the big stuff out of the way first- I'm living in Seattle now. That's right, I graduated and moved up to start college. I've never lived in the big city before, and holy crap is it different. For one thing, until Seattle, the only time I saw bums is from the car while we drove through downtown Reno. As stupid as I feel thinking this, every time I get near someone that looks homeless, I feel like I'm gonna get stabbed. Hopefully I get over that soon, because it sucks and it's a pretty messed up thing to think of someone.
It's weird living alone, but I could get used to it. I have to do a lot more stuff myself, which is a good thing because it's forcing me to be more responsible, but it's tough when it comes to keeping myself in check. I've spent entire days just doing nothing, which isn't good since I've got a truckload of work just from my 3 classes AND I still need to find a job. Gonna try to get a job at either Gamestop or Bed, Bath & Beyond because both are relatively close, one involves something I love (videogames, although I appreciate quality linens from time to time) and the other seems to require a lot of movement and activity, which will be helpful for keeping me in shape.
It's also tough managing my money. My Dad gave me Quicken to help with it, and it definitely helps, but it's still tricky. Especially when it comes to avoiding the urge to buy awesome new games and all. Speaking of games, I've gotten a metric assload more since March. The list in its entirety is as follows:
Just Cause 2, Brutal Legend, Dead Rising 2, God of War 1-3, Bioshock, Borderlands, Call of Duty: World at War, Assassin's Creed 1 & 2, LittleBIGPlanet, Heavy Rain, inFAMOUS, WET, Red Dead Redemption, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Red Faction: Guerrilla, Army of Two: The 40th Day, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Tekken 6 and Transformers: War for Cybertron.
There's probably a lot more to cover, but I can't think of it right now, so yeah.
Great ending, huh?
