Homeless, Day 9

Nothing much to report today. Yesterday, as expected, I finished up repainting the spare bedroom. Today I went to Circuit City because my dad wanted more RAM in his computer. Later today my grandpa, uncle, step-aunt, sister, brother in law, and nephew are...

Homeless, Day 8

So, I spent the majority of the day yesterday painting my old bedroom/my dad's old office since my parents are turning it into a spare bedroom. After finishing, my mom decided she didn't like the color, so today I'm probably going to end up repainting it....

Homeless, Day 7

Seven days down, seven to go until I move into my new pad. Last night was the traditional Friday night dinner at Kouri's Pub where I finally got to meet the infamous Jim Kerr. For the second time. It was good times. Afterwards we headed to Polk's place...

Homeless, Day 6

So, I spent most of yesterday looking for new jobs on the internet. I ran into some really, really cool ones, but I've decided to not discuss potential jobs until I know I have them. That just gets my hopes up. Then people ask "Whatever happened with that...

Homeless, Day 5

AKA - Goodbye, credit card debt. Well, not quite goodbye, I guess. But close, and that's what matters. I'm down to about $400, but keep buying stupid stuff I shouldn't be buying. I can justify the purchases now since I'm so close to being debt free, but I...

Homeless, Day 4

These days have gone relatively quickly for the most part. Today Jaimee and I went out to a lazy man's picnic with Winnie, then out for ice cream. I left around 4, and have been doing basically nothing since I got back to my parent's house. It sucks, since...

Homeless, Day 3.

Yesterday I woke up bright and early to take care of stuff I hadn't quite taken care of. This included cutting off my energy, cable, internet, and phone at my old apartment. I finished all that up around noon and headed up to DeKalb to see Jaimee. I...

Homeless, Day 2

I slept for about 13 hours straight last night, which was excellent. I feel much better today. My parent's shower is probably the most excellent thing in the world. It's very high pressure, and there's always hot water. And the shower head is high enough...

Homeless, Day 1

I'm completely homeless now. My dad and I took the 1 huge load back to my parent's house, and some to the garage I have for the next 2 weeks or so. Fabish and I spent roughly 2,000 hours cleaning and cleaning and cleaning some more. I feel sorry for anyone...

What a long fucking day.

I had 4 or 5 people volunteer to help me move out, but today when I called them, they either weren't there or found an excuse to back out. So, I loaded and carried 3 truck loads of stuff to my new apartment's garage, and a few more to my parent's house. I...

So all my

So, all my stuff is packed into boxes, with the exception of my dishes. Everything is scattered throughout my living room, waiting to be packed into a truck and moved across town. I'll be sleeping here tonight, then tomorrow will move everything I own...

There's less than

There's less than a week left at my current apartment, which makes me a bit sad. I've spent the last few days packing and packing and packing some more. I've also thrown out a bunch of stuff. Lots. About 5 garbage bags full of junk that I don't even...

An uneventful few days, I guess.

Okay, well, on Friday I picked up my dog. I was hoping that she'd be housebroken, but no such luck. Although she's catching on fairly quickly, which makes me think (and hope) that she's been housebroken before, but has simply forgotten. Abby and her don't...

My new dog

I adopted a new dog today. It's awesome. It's a shepard/chow mix, a female, and ridiculously cute. It's a bit over the 25lb. guideline my apartment set, but hopefully they won't notice or care. It gets fixed tomorrow and I pick her up on Friday. Any...

new toys

So, I sent the final mosquito CD away on Friday and have been anxiously awaiting the final check for more than 1 reason. 1. It eliminates the credit card debt that has been ruining my life for the last 6 months or so, and 2. it gives me a few hundred extra...

So on Friday

So, on Friday me and went to Kouri's Pub, which was a first for both of us. Hopefully we'll make this a tradition for every Friday. After I dropped him off, I went to John Zarr's place to hang out with the old high school crowd. The whole crowd was...

Good-bye debt, hello DVDs.

I finished up and mailed off that big mosquito CD-ROM job today, which puts the final $1500 into my pocket. Or, rather, it puts the final $1500 into Mastercard's pocket. Also, I got the second payment for another job, so I'm almost back in the green. My...

junkmachine community

I made a [junkmachine.com][1] community, because I'm cool like that. Everyone reading this should go join it, so that when I start promoting it, it won't look lame with just 1 member and no posts and such. Get to the community [here.][2] [1]:...

I've done just

I've done just about everything I know how to avoid doing work today. I worked on junkmachine stuff, watched some TV, took Abby on a walk, paid some bills, and set up an appointment to get my windshield fixed. Now I'm out of stuff to do. Luckily it's...

I finally got

I finally got my awesome camera thing. You can see pictures I took with it [here][1]. It's been a productive few days. I got a new job here in town which starts soon. I also got [Joy's message board][2] working on the [junkmachine servers][3]. And, if...
