Oklahoma City Bound

heyeveryone

I’m currently en route to Oklahoma City. Oklahoma City??? What’s in Oklahoma City?? Margie’s there. I can’t believe I haven’t even talked about Margie (have I?). She’s an older friend of mine who I met in Texas back in 2014. She’s currently living in Oklahoma because of family matters but she also gets better access to healthcare there. Oklahoma is an interesting place for sure, not going to deny it. I went for a quick visit back in September so I know what I’m talking about at least a little bit.

It’s really hard for me to get bored, so I don’t get it when people say there’s nothing to do in the Midwest. Sure, it’s not the most attractive place in the world and it might lack a lot of variety, but I think that’s the beauty of it. It’s kind of refreshing to spend a little bit of time in the Midwest because not a whole lot of people are trying so damn hard to be different in fake ways. Everyone is so stinkin’ nice and accepting even if they think I’m some stupid west coast hippie.

There’s a lot of Trump supporters in Oklahoma, that’s for sure. I’m honestly exhausted thinking about Trump and his administration and how they plan to take over the world… but at the same time I just want to understand why people continue to support him and his rhetoric. It’s hard for me to imagine what the future is going to be like right now and that’s probably why I feel like I’ve been going so crazy lately.

Boarding just started, got to run!

P.S. Big travel coming up soon. Stay tuned!

Quick Update

Mercury retrograde has not killed me yet. We’ve got a few more days left to survive and then we are in the clear! I just checked this morning and we’re all supposed to be normal again on Sunday.

The earth just keeps spinning….

I finally finished Rich’s recommendation letter yesterday. Wow, that was a process! I stressed myself out to the max trying to come up with words for someone that has done so much for me. In the end it was simple, direct, and honest and I am satisfied. I hope he gets the job.

I have a confession to make: I’m a big fat sinner. It’s been 11 degrees at my house and I was freezing, so I used my space heater. I’m dying over here, though! Mom came downstairs and called me out for being a phony wuss who can’t handle a little cold (a little cold!?). I put it back in my closet and I will try not to relapse again…

Work has been very busy and I’ve made a lot of sugah and I plan on using it to travel. I need to get out of here, even if it’s only for a little bit. Trevor (old friend who lives in town) wants to go to China and we found $400 round-trip tickets the other day. I like the idea, but we have not dropped any money. The visa is very expensive and it is holding us back.

Off to work!
