What A Summer

I’m not really sure what to write. It’s currently 2:36am right now, I’m laying naked in bed and unable to sleep. So many different thoughts and emotions are flowing through my mind right now it’s got my blood pumping way to fast!

To sum up the last few months of my absence, I have mostly just been working. From June to the middle of September Pismo Beach, CA was home. My job in Las Vegas, NV which also has a location in CA, sent me to work out on the beach for the summer. Little did I know I was signing my entire life away with this agreement. it was all good though, I really did enjoy my time despite the fact that I was working 75 plus hours every single week with hardly any time in between shifts to do anything besides sleep.

The disappointing fact of all this is that I don’t really have as much money saved up as I would like to. Some how my data usage on my phone has been out the roof even though my habits have not changed one bit, it’s just been since Verizon forced me into signing a new contract.  So I’ve been paying way to much for that, i was eating out entirely to much, and other stupid stuff.

 

Now I’m back in Vegas. 3 days deep into my old position in the desert, and I am already hating it. Some asshole threw some serious attitude my way today, and that set me off pretty good. And general bullshit that goes along with a job.

 

I have no clue what I want to do, and honestly this is starting to really bother me. I have no direction, no plans, only dreams, and the world that I want to explore. I don’t know where to start, or how to start, which seems silly given all the things I have done so far.

 

I’m beginning a new chapter of my life. I don’t know what will happen or where it will take me. But I’m incredibly nervous for the way things may or may not turn out.

 

That is all.

Budgetting

I for the first time in my Adult life have finally set up a budget and I plan on sticking to it to maximize my savings. I loaded Ubuntu on my computer last night and started playing around it, and it’s awesome because it comes preloaded with a bunch of good programs such as a word processor, and a spreadsheet creator. Anyways, I was playing with the spread sheet creator, and I was having a hard time making my own budget sheet, so I went online and in five minutes I found a great template. I just tweaked it a little bit so that It would hold everything I need it to. Hopefully it works out for me, and I’ll be sure to update on how it is going.

As far as the Ubuntu, it’s a learning curve for, the user interface is similar to a Mac in my opinion, but it’s better. So I am just trying to learn where everything is at because that’s the hard part of it all. I’ve used windows my entire life and now all of a sudden I am throwing myself into a completely new environment, but it’s completely exciting, and this is what I love about technology, learning new things rather than doing the same old boring things over and over again.

Tree Planting in Canada this summer sounds pretty awesome. I’m doing as much research on the topic as I can, but it looks like if I can get hired doing this I can come out making a minimum of five thousand dollars in 2 or 3 months! Come January I am going to start applying for jobs and hopefully I can get an interview and explain what I NEED a job like that. I know I can handle the hard physical and mental work, and with a job like that I will be able to fund some extra fun travel, and new tattoos of course.

That’s all,

-Noodles Out!
