New Journey, New Blog

Since pretty much all of my friends have switched to blogspot, I decided that a change might help me get back to posting my thoughts. And as I am sans friends here in Florida, I want to let you know what's going on here!

Things I love about Florida: working out at the gym with my Uncle Tommy, cooking Tilapia/Salmon/Steak on the grill at Sandy and Tommy's with fresh vegetables for almost every meal, sitting on the porch and watching the dolphins swim down the river, colorful plants, World Market and Chipotle(!), Tomoka Christian Fellowship, the ocean (eventhough I don't tan, sitting on the beach is one of my favorite things), spending quality time with my grandmother.

Things I Miss: friends, having to get up to go to class (who'd a thunk it?), dry heat, Calvin (the cat) jumping up on my back when I'm asleep because he's decided that he needs attention then jumping off when someone walks in the room because he doesn't want anyone else to know that he's really a prissy cat, my car, Bangkok Royal and Clay Pot, living with Lydia (I didn't realize that when I moved in with my grandmother, I would actually be living with my father again :) ), PJ's with Katie, Alexia, and Lydia, Barry Camp (Thanks to the power of technology, I can still listen to his sermons), HEB.
There are a lot of great things about being here, but I feel that I'm in that in-between stage of life and so there's still a strong longing to be in LA. I'm excited about how being here will help prepare me for being there. I will definitely be more fit, I work out everyday and am basically eating meat and vegetables, and I'll have a little money saved up to start out, actually very little but at least it's a start.
The drive up here was good fun. Me and mom went through Atlanta and got to spend time with the family and with my new cousins!

Okay, hopefully that can catch you up on what's going on!

Thought of the day: Honesty is the best policy, but insanity is a better defense.
