I've been there!

I made this little map today in between making shit, stuffing my face, and applying for jobs. The red areas are all of the places I have visited. Funny how I've done more traveling than most people I know, yet there is still all that white area to see. Man we RIers are sheltered people!

Anywho, I'm hoping things get a wee bit exciting around here, as I scored 2 jobs today. Not what I was looking to do, but it's only three months and I don't have a MI teaching certificate, so my options ar severely limited. I'll be tutoring little musical geniouses at a private music school a few days a week. I am postive this experience will be fun, since they'll all scoff at me for being unable to carry a tune. Meanwhile, all you math nerds will be thrilled that I am also going to work at a place called Pi. Yes, back to the old bar scene. At least I can wear the same thing every day and get people intoxicated by mid afternoon. What's more fun than that?

And we're back!

I've been neglecting this blog yet again, but who has time to write when you only get 2 months of home time? And now it's over... but I certainly enjoyed it while it lasted. Playing with my nephews, hanging out with my girlfriends, going to a show, eating real food, oh yeah, and speaking English! Pretty sweet. Now on to the next adventure...

Eric and I set out on Monday afternoon for our 800 mile (that's over 1200 km for you metric folk!) trek to Michigan. We arrived on Tuesday afternoon after a high class evening of dinner at Ruby Tuesday's and a snooze at the Super 8 Motel, Clearfield, PA. That's how we roll. Our condo is spotless and adorable, and no, we don't live on 8 mile. We don't even live in Detroit. It's a very suburban, very clean area with a million developments and every chain store/restaurant you've ever heard of, plus about 50 you haven't. Even so, last night I woke up when I heard voices, and discovered a drug deal going down underneath our window. For real. Small time stuff, but still. I guess I know who to go to if I decide to take up crack.

Now the hunt is on to find a job, while Eric works his 12 hour days. We all know sitting home all day like Suzy Homemaker just ain't gonna cut it. In the meantime, I'm back to my ATC addiction, Zetti style this time, so all hope is not lost. At least I can occupy a little time creating while I wait for someone to call me and tell me they want to hire me for a 3 month, part time, 20 dollar an hour position tasting pastries.
