Some big news and some odds and ends

by - Wednesday, November 05, 2008

I decided to scrap the gym last night and get my run in outside after work. It was starting to get dark when I got home, but it was still decent, plus my neighbors have all kinds of lights and stuff. By the time I got to mile two though it was pretty much pitch black and it was hard to see the road in front of me. I was worried I was going to trip and fall. (Maybe that's why my time was so crappy...32: something for 3.2 miles...way slower than I have been going lately.)

But I got it in and I didn't sprain an ankle. It's probably a good thing my iPod died in the NOT cold again because I could hear cars coming and such. Seriously maybe it is time for a new iPod or something. It dying every time the weather is not 70 degrees is getting a bit old.

My Big News:

Well I've been sitting on this news for a long, long time because nothing was official until this week. But it's official now.

I got a new job! In Washington, D.C.!!!!

I can't put into words how happy I am to be getting back to the D.C./Md. area. You guys know I've been going back there almost every weekend since the end of July because I love it and miss it so much.

So yea, new job working for the government starting Nov. 24. I'm super excited.

I'm currently in the midst of trying to find places to live. It's not easy let me tell you. I saw two places last weekend. Neither was great. I'm going to see a place tonight (yup driving down three hours in rush hour traffic after work, looking out a house, and then driving another two hours back home so I can be at work tomorrow...ick) and then I'm going to see another place next Tuesday and I'm sure a few more this weekend.

It's stressful to say the least, but it's got to be done. I've been a hobo on my friends couches on the weekends for long enough. I don't want to further impose by not having my own place to live!

I have high hopes for the place I'm seeing tonight. The girls living there now seem really friendly so I'm hoping they'd be good roommates. Cross your fingers for me!

Also a few of you commented on the "cute blind ref" from the Halloween pics. Man, I can't slip anything past you guys! He's the BF. He's a real nice guy that I met...where a Maryland tailgate.
