$10,000 off of my student loan to live in North Dakota…

Grand Forks Herald | 04/28/2003 | NEW HOMESTEAD ACT: Proposal aims to fight rural population loss
The scariest thing is that I read the article and considered it. What is in North Dakota anyway, besides Fargo?

1- Birthday

I had a quiet birthday, which is what I wanted. I am waiting until next year to go all out for the big 3-0 celebration. I went to work, came home, and just spent time alone in self-thought and analyzation. It’s the truth. Anyway, thank you to Mew, April, Lesa, Angie, Aunt Jackie, Deborah, and my parents for the birthday cards and calls. They were deeply appreciated.
The main reason that I didn’t want anything special is probably because I just have too much on my plate, with the #1 thing being the move out of here. I also have to deal with the move at work and all the other stuff that is going on there.
Anyway, age is just a number, right? It not about how old you are, but how old you feel. In that case, why do I feel older than I really am? Something to ponder over

This monday has just kick me in the ass.

Amber came out today, so I haven’t had time to really do an update. Am working late tonight and feeling tired, so not sure if I will update tonight.
Talked to park Merced and $1600 is the lowest that they will go. So it looks like I’m moving. Yay, or something.

BTW, I’m Back…

Back from Depression Island….decided to cut my trip short. Too much stuff to do to be depressed. Too drained right now, will update at work tomorrow.
Redid website,go take a look at it and bookmark it. Will probably be doing most of my journaling there instead of Blurtyor at Livejournal. For right now, I guess I’ll just cross-post over all three of them.
O.K. Sleep time.

500 Question Survey – taken from AmyObsessive

– taken from AmyObsessive
I tried to one up Amy or anybody else crazy/bored to do this by linking all my answers. Unfortunately, the Blurty client gave up around the 100’s. I reached the max character limit for the client. Anyway, perhaps if I am bored, I will finish it up in this journal…or maybe I’ll just put myself out of my misery…
