On Monday, I'll post my last post for a little bit. Tuesday I leave for Austin. Instead of driving, I am flying into Houston and then driving to Austin. It ended up being a hell of a lot cheaper than renting a car (since I still don't have one and refuse to get one ever since the Omaha incident of summer 2009). Then you factor in other expenses such as gas, getting a hotel along the way, coffee, cheetos, slurpees, etc etc and you've got some major money going out the window.
ANYHOW! Book a flight for and rented a card for 200 hundred dollars less than what I was going to be spending renting a car and driving 11 hours and 13 minutes (according to mapquest) by myself. Now, I am only driving a mere 3 hours to Austin. You see, sometimes I use my brain.
On to other news... Some of you may now that I've been really sick lately. I went to the doctor's last week and let's say the results weren't entirely shocks but still it's a major thing. Don't worry, I don't have cancer or anything. Besides just having an extremely weak immune system, we will see what else is going on when the blood results come back and I go back to the doctor on Friday. I've told about 4-5 people that I felt needed to know what is going on with me. I felt these people a) wouldn't freak out b) deserved to know especially for future travels and hanging out c) because I care for them and feel that they care for me and it's rare to come by these sort of people.
Photography news, I just spent 150 dollars on film. Ouch...I need to learn how to use my digital more, and get an editing program besides iPhoto...
Lastly, I am going to leave you with some words of wisdom from my mother:
"your body is a temple, but you are treating it like a goddamn casino, no wonder it's shutting down on you..."

P.S. I am not going to make a habit of making novel posts like this but I felt it was important, just incase we cross paths and I don't seem to be my normal self. For other things going on in my life, like my "book a week" project,
progress on training for a 5K, taking drum lessons and possibly learning the bass, please go to my tumblr for all that.
