When you can't sleep...finally create a blog!
So, I've always wanted to create a blog. Well not always, but as of late. I don't know what's been stopping me...but tonight I couldn't sleep and so i just decided it was the day. Now do I think anyone is going to read this? Probably not. I'm not real interesting hah. For instance the most exciting thing that I've done today was watch the "Jon and Kate Plus 8" premiere with my mom. I'm essentially the next Paris Hilton if my life keeps going on this way.
Things are actually getting pretty exciting for me...in theory. I've always been the kind of person with big ideas but sometimes it's the follow thru that I have trouble with. I don't know if it's because I think certain things are just unattainable or because I get a little tripped up in myself and my own fears. However, lately I've been thinking a lot about stuff (insightful) and I've just realized that I can sit around waiting for things to happen or I can make them happen.
My friend Carly from work was talking about moving to Tampa about a month and a half ago and I casually mentioned how I would love to do something like that. She was like, "Well come with me." At first I was thinking, "Yeah ok. Me...in Tampa." And then I realllly started thinking about it and its been turning into "Well why not Tampa?" I don't have a lot holding me back right now. My job although it's getting better isn't a dream job by any means, and as much as my roommates Tim and Barb would miss me I'm pretty sure they would survive. My friends are all doing these exciting things for themselves (Cat's being SuperCatherine as usual and I couldn't be prouder, Marisa's going to INDIA for a year, Sara+LK+Stef are all going to Grad school, and Em's married and starting a family.) I don't want to be the friend that's stuck in a job she's not too crazy about sharing a room with a beagle who at many times isn't too fond of my jokes. So why not Tampa?
I was talking to my mom and the more we talk the better it seems. And as far as I know if I move down there and hate it they aren't going to hold me hostage there. I think the cons towards the whole Tampa move are:
- Large Bugs
- Possibly running into Lou Pearlman (former shady manager of *NSYNC and Backstreet Boys)
However the pros are:
- A positive change
- Something new and exciting
- Year round tan
- A great vacation destination for all friends and family
- An opportunity to get my own puppy
- Did I mention perma-tan?
- Real Palm Trees
- Maybe the coolest thing I've ever done
Really at this point the thing that's the scariest thing is not having a job....but I hear the original Hooters is founded in Tampa so I've got that going for me. Hulk Hogan also lives in the area and due to recent events he clearly needs new PR people in his life.
(Sidenote: I put that "Mother Lovers" song on my iPod by J.Timberlake and Andy Samberg aka future husband...and it's basically hilarious. Check it: Mother Lover)
So, that's where I am right now. We'll see how it goes but I'm realllllly hoping that come September...I'll have new digs.
