The Ultimately Awesome Account of Me Being Tired

Well it's almost the end of the day, meaning school day. There is nothing else productive that I am required to do today after this.  Thank God.  I think I could probably fall asleep sitting up right now.

In the last post that I wrote I mentioned how much the people that live below me smoke, well it's affecting my sleeping. The smell in my apartment is literally so bad that I can't sleep without a window open and the fan on. Keep this in mind while reading the next few sentences.

Last night I'm trying to go to sleep early because I have a morning class at 8, I am seriously starting to regret this decision by the way. So I get in bed at midnight which is actually early for me, and I get comfortable and I'm almost asleep when some imbecile across the street decides to work on his car.

Now, I'm not really a car person. By this I mean that about all I can do is pump gas and change a tire, I actually love old muscle cars and trucks, but I am the opposite of talented when something on my car breaks. This being said it's obvious I don't know anything about the mechanics of working on cars. However, I do know that at one in the morning working on your car doesn't/shouldn't consist of hammering loudly on something metal with something equally as dense and metal; and then proceeding to rev your engine for 10 second intervals every few minutes. I mean, seriously? Where was this guys common sense? How did he even see his car?

All of this normally wouldn't be a problem if I didn't have to have my windows open to breathe like a normal human being.

That being said, I'm exhausted. I think I'll go home and relax. Maybe.

Out With The Old, In With The New?

I suppose to actually give this blog a chance of existing in my life I actually have to use it. I'm still unsure as to if I actually enjoy the fact that anyone could read this.
Regardless, I'm still going to give it a chance.

The place that I live now is awesome for a "first college apartment".  It has the perfect amount of space for me, my dog and my things.  The distance from my apartment to Kennesaw State is ideal for someone like me who drives a huge truck that eats gas like its nothing, not to mention the millions of stores that are literally a stones through from the front door. 
Unfortunately, it has run the course on the novelty that it possessed when I first moved in. It's not that I'm not grateful for having been able to live here for the year that I did, because I am incredibly grateful for this opportunity. There are things that I've noticed over the year though, that have made me more than willing to move out. 

The parking in the complex that I live in is atrocious at nights. During the day most people are either in school or working, so the parking is obviously not a problem. Like any normal college student I enjoy going out with my friends at night and having a good time. To do this where I live now I have to be prepared to walk from the "clubhouse" to my apartment when I get home. Call me odd but at one or two in the morning I'd prefer to be able to just walk from my car into my apartment, not up a hill and down a few streets.
The one other main thing that I've noticed about the place I live is that the people below me smoke. Now I typically don't have an issue with people smoking even though I don't smoke, and I don't like the smell of smoke. My concern comes in when everything I have starts smelling like smoke because the people that live in the apartment beneath mine smoke like chimneys. I understand it's their right to be able to smoke in their apartment, but good God please get an air filter or something. If I walk into my apartment and hit a wall of smoke I can only imagine what theirs must smell like. I enjoy not smelling like an ashtray thank you very much, please go smoke outside.

Anyway, this has all taught me to be very careful as to where I choose to live next. I should probably get a few more reviews and talk to the neighbors before signing a contract.

Ironically the start of 'Something New'

I'm sure that by now you've figured out that this is my first blog, and if not then SURPRISE.  I'm not quite sure if I'll keep up with it, or even if I'll like it. Maybe it'll turn out to be a good idea and I'll love it, hopefully that's the case.

So in keeping up with the theme of the title I'll talk about what's new. For starters I'm moving out of my first apartment to (hopefully) a townhouse. I am ridiculously excited about this move, and have been wanting it to happen for awhile. I hope that everything ends up going well and we get the townhouse no problem, considering that I have to have a place by the end of February.

Secondly I am back in school, and closer to graduating than I'd like to be. It's not that I don't want to graduate, because I do, it's that I'm terrified of actually having to find a 'real' job. Not a part-time making $8.50 and hour type job, but a real grown up 9 to 5 type of job. Everyone has to start sometime though right? I mean unless I magically win the lottery, which would be ideal. So fingers crossed for that plan.

Also new on the list of things is that I'm being forced to learn to cook. Not quite sure how I got talked into it but it's happening if I want it to or not. To make a long story short, I'm going to be loosing lots of weight and eating lots of chicken, because that's all I can manage to not burn so far. In my defense at least I can bake, I make some really amazing brownies and cookies. 

Well I'm running out of time and things to say so I think this will conclude my first ever blog post. I don't really expect anyone to actually read it, maybe even kind of hoping. Who knows, maybe it'll be fun...
