I’m posting an update because my brother told me yesterday that people have said stuff to him about my blog, so apparently people back home read it, and I don’t want people checking it out and seeing a post about menstrual cups first thing.
So what have I been up to? Well first I was studying for my CNSC exam for work, which BTW was the hardest exam I’ve ever taken. Which makes sense since they’ve changed the exam and it’s the same for everyone regardless of whether you’re a dietitian, nurse, doctor, or pharmacist. So it was really hard, and I still don’t know if I passed because they are archaic and mail you your results 4 weeks after taking it.
SO I was studying for that and hating life because I lived with the craziest roommate ever. This girl tried to tell me I wasn’t allowed to open my blinds because “people will see you changing and walk by the house even after you move out.” I also got frequently scolded for my water usage despite the fact that I take 5 minute showers and she took 30 minute showers, no joke. Then I got accused of poisoning her cat (the most LOLable thing ever since I’m a cat freak) and was pretty sure my messages were being hacked among other things so I moved out.
I was homeless for about 2 hours before dear old craigslist came through and I met my new and current roommate, the nicest 70 year old lady and her toy poodle. We live together in a senior citizen’s community and she makes me and her boyfriend who lives down the street dinner every night. After dinner we watch Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune and I play Dominoes with them and their friends on Fridays. It’s kind of the best thing ever.
But all good things must come to an end, and I will be moving out in 2 weeks for my next adventure. I love traveling, but I’m tired of living in smaller cities in the valley so I’m moving to LA to do consulting all around there. In classic traveler fashion I will be moving down there with no housing lined up 2 days before I fly to Ohio and New York for a week before immediately beginning work the day after my trip. So wish me luck finding and moving into a place in 36 hours! And wish me even more luck, because I will be working all over that entire city, so odds are at some point I will have the most soul sucking commute of my life. So it goes.
On a sad note, my childhood puppy got put to sleep the same day I found out I got a new job. Talk about bittersweet. RIP Tia.
