So I am unofficially moved from Amy's house in Gilbert to another Jessica's home in Mesa. I say unofficially, because there is roughly one more set of stuff that I need to gather and move. Further more, my dog Linux broke my bedroom window panes during the move of the big stuff, so I need to fork out the money on them again. And over the course of the months of my Yorki Joey being locked in my bedroom he tore up the carpet pretty good by the door, which I need to pay for as well. So, unofficially, cause I am definitely still paying for that room.
Kelli ended up canceling the Karaoke night, her ride was leaving one day earlier than she had thought. I had taken the night off, so I still stayed till closing. It was really interesting watching everyone leave before me, rather than me leaving first. It was nice seeing how many people walked up to shake my hand goodbye. I've made plenty of friends there, including several of the staff members.
I don't show it, because I loathe moving, but nothing excites me more than to be moving to this house. Don't get me wrong, I had no real complaints about living at Amy and Ray's, but this move allows me a new starting point with my diet. Unlike at A&R's, I have my own shelf in the cupboard, my own shelf in the fridge and on the door of said fridge. It's a nice roomy kitchen, and I plan to purchase a nice blender for myself for some more smoothies. Only healthy food for me at my house. I am really going to try and bring more food lunches/dinners from home to work. Fast food will no longer cut it. (More details at projectme-shepsus.blogspot.com) It's gonna be tough, but I want to do it. it's the lifestyle I *want*.
Also, there is a park RIGHT ACROSS the street from the new location. With the weather cooling down some, Linux, Joey, and I are gonna start having room to run again. Back at the house Linux, Joey, and I ran around for about an hour every morning because the park was so close. It gave them time to stretch their legs and keep their calm for the day. Eventually it came to be that Linux would not leave the garage door without a walk, which really inspired me to continue walking him. His joy always brings me joy. I have been told there is a dog park nearby as well, if I ever felt the need to not use the regular park.
Will's birthday is coming up on Nov 4th. It's difficult for me to understand, because his death still seems recent. I remember thinking on how everyone was going to react when it came to his birthday after he died. Will's parents and grandparents decided it was a good idea to celebrate his life with all of his friends for his birthday. With the help of Isaac, the lot of us have been contacted and invited via Facebook. It could be a very good time, I just hope we celebrate his life, instead of mourn for his death. I feel like there is a good chance I will make a joke and people will be offended because they will be in morning whereas I will be celebrating.
Speaking of friends, I have done well in the lowering of the pedestals for some of my friends. Some of the stuff I read on Facebook still bother me at times, but I'm not trying so hard or getting too fed up about it. Less stress. Becka and I haven't been able to hang out, but we still text every day. Brenda and I went to Fear Farm with some friends of her's and it was an absolute blast. I'd do it again in a heart beat. We didn't get to hit everything, so if you are going and wouldn't mind another member, hit me up!
Didi and I have continued to talk and hang out. She helped a LOT the past couple of days. She let me borrow her car while mine was out of commission. And she didn't mind using her car and filling it full of my goodies to take over to J&J's house. She actually texted me tonight thanking me for breakfast's and lunch's I have paid for as well as keeping her company. Very sweet. She doesn't realize how much she's helped me out the past couple of days.
My friend Tiffany is now in South Korea and is enjoying herself. Her and I have been able to talk via Facebook once since her move. I need to get Skype set up so we can video chitchat and so she can show me her place. I think I am going to miss her more than I thought I would.
....Back to the move. I think that with this healthy diet/lifestyle change that I am going to put myself through, I need to make it less of just a diet change, and lean more toward the lifestyle change. Having a true starting point is inspiring me to take control over the time I have in my life. For example, I have time at work to study and read and listen to educational-type of things instead of Netflix-ing it up all the time. I think I am truly motivated for that now. At home, I have a Rosetta Stone Spanish 1,2, and 3, which I want to learn, and have yet to play around with. I think I am ready for that too. The less noise around, nice big room, I feel I can do it. Granted, they are .iso's that need to be mounted, and so far Rosetta Stone isn't reading them properly, but I have only tried it once.
I am happy to report more people are still continuing to read my blog to keep up with my life, which I thoroughly enjoy hearing. So now I get to ask you all who have known me quite a while (and even if you've only really spoken to me via Facebook,) who else has effected my life to make me who I am today? Is there anyone you think that I have missed possibly? Please don't be shy, and don't be afraid to be selfish. I have many close friends and if I have forgotten you, please tell me.

Beyond the boundaries of your city's lights,
Stand the heroes waiting for your cries.
So many times you did not bring this on yourself,
When that moment finally comes,
I'll be there to help. - Citizen/Soldier by 3 doors down
