J'ai décidé!

Alrighty folks (or folk.. I'm pretty sure the only person who reads this is D),

I've decided on my new blog, finally! As you know, I recently moved into my first apartment (it's been a little over a month - feels like a decade!) and I haven't been able to get a dog yet. Or a Mac. And I haven't really met any people. Everything I wanted to make my Jersey in Connecticut blog about fell through. But you know what the one thing that I do every day, consistently? I cook. And I cannot wait to cook every day. But I'm not gourmet by any means. I'm cheap, I use store brand products and I google recipes. I do know that I love food, and I can admit when my own food tastes like crap. Oh, and I like to take pictures and write. So, my friend(s)/cousin, I'm going to do a cooking blog. Hopefully what I have in mind for my "twist" on the cooking blog will set it apart from others. And I really need to figure out how to get my blog titles more searchable on Google. :)

Other than that, things have been okay in CT. I miss my friends dearly. I miss having them within drivable distance. I have seen Stef literally just about every single day of the past 2 years, and I'm going over a month now without seeing her. It's nuts. I miss my mom, too. And I'm sad because I missed out on some family events...a funeral (not really an event, but I still missed it), Leah's birthday party, a friend's baby shower, a trip to visit my mom's side of the family. It sucks. I hate missing out.

What else? I love my apartment/condo. My job truly starts at the end of next week. Things with boy are a little weird, for lack of a better word (or maybe I just think they are...idk). Maybe "unsure" is a better word.. some days are great and other days could be better.

Tomorrow is also father's day. Ugh. The past few years, I haven't done well on that day. I tend to be a hermit and hole up in my bed all and hug one of the last stuffed animals he gave me. I make bad food decisions and watch sad movies.

I'm going to end this on a positive note, though: Stef and Cassie are coming to visit me for the midnight release of Eclipse! Woo!

Okay, catch ya later, and keep an eye peeled for my new blog.

PS - Starting a new blog does not mean this one is caput. It's just slow, because, well, not much is going on for me at the moment. And, once I make my bed and clean my rooms and such, now that I'm finally all unpacked and have all furniture...pictures will come. =].
