My Not So Mid-Life Crisis

Blogging is totally just people like me, writing what they think, so that we feel like someone is listening... Or in this case reading. The truth of the matter is, it's not just so that it's read, it's so that you're telling someone so that you simply get it off your chest. That's how it is for me anyway. My posts are almost always either me ranting about whatever popped into my mind or some experiment of some sort i'm conducting. This is one of those "ranting about whatever popped into my mind" kind of posts.
If the title isn't clear enough, I've fallen into a sort of mid-life crisis... which isn't in the middle of my life (or I hope not at least) but it's still a crisis. Mid of mid-life crisis perhaps? Anyway, the one time I truly felt like I had a plan and everything was going to go smoothly, nothing ends up going smoothly. I officially don't know the answer to anything and I feel like i'm sort of floating around here and there until something sticks. Without even a small goal or something to work toward, it's like life holds no meaning. It's just the same thing repeating itself; a broken record. I sometimes wonder if I will ever figure out what I want or if I will continue on like I always have. Perhaps I need a life changing experience like Julia Roberts in "Eat Pray Love".

On a side note; It's probably extremely abnormal to not be able to stay anywhere or stick with anything right? It's also gotten worse. I think my philosophy that everything fixes itself is failing me.

I also believe that i've become a crazy cat lady @.@

Free Willy

My blog has been quite dead lately, so my apologies go out to the people who actually read this.

Lets see... Highlights: Moved to California a few weeks ago. I flew out here on the fourth, flew back ten days later, then drove back again for a little road trip with my road trip partner. We hit Iowa, Nebraska, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and Nevada.

Some tid bits from each place:

  • Iowa: Decided to camp during extreme weather conditions and the tent almost blew away... Actually it did at first. 
  • Nebraska: Road construction through THE WHOLE STATE. They were re-paving the roads, so instead of doing one side and then the other, they decided to just tear up every lane resulting in a flat tire. Lucky us, there isn't a shop for miles so we have to go to a farming depot in a town that doesn't even have paved roads. I don't miss Nebraska. 
  • Colorado: Colorado is by far my favorite state out of the trip. Being a short-lived Colorado native, I love everything about it. If I didn't have to live in a major metropolitan area for my recent career, I would move back there in a heart beat. We hit up the Denver zoo and downtown Denver, hiked up the Rockies, saw some snow, visited Manitou Springs and Garden Of The Gods... I do miss Colorado. 
  • New Mexico: We didn't spend a lot of time here, but we stopped through Santa Fe and Albuquerque so I could get some Indian fry bread. 
  • Arizona: While on the way to visit my Grandma, we stopped at Bedrock... Yes, Bedrock. Then we went to the Grand Canyon, met my Grandma's new boyfriend and headed to LAS VEGAS.
  • Nevada: What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Just kidding... The most exciting thing I did was gamble on the machines. 

climbed that like a boss
