Okay it’s been awhile since I posted, but that’s because there has been a WHOLE lot going on lately. I’m now living in a house on my own in Temple City, CA. Out of 60 people who got applications for it, I managed to squeak in It’s a great place that’s perfect for me. Lots of room, big kitchen, and it’s on a concrete slab Sometimes it gets really quiet, so I can listen to my music/play my DVDs at pretty much any volume without worrying about disturbing the neighbors. The house is in a nice neigborhood a few miles from the 210 and 10 freeways. God has definitely blessed me by granting me the opportunity to get out on my own and have my first place be a 2 bedroom house!
Okay, enough about that now
I’ve been hired by Westmed Ambulance in Irwindale, CA as an ambulance driver/attendant. I’m in the process of getting the necessary papers/certifications/permits to facilitate being in this job. Quite frustrating at times, it has definitely been. It’s taking 3 weeks longer than I expected for things to start up with Westmed…BUT, it’s all worth it. I’m really excited about the opportunities that await. Many things are changing right now, and I’m a little anxious about some of them, but I know God is in control of it all and won’t let anything happen that isn’t supposed to. Any of you out there who pray, send a prayer or two my way if you get the chance, I’d be very grateful for them.
On another note, man it is freaking expensive to move out! I’ve spent at least 1500 dollars on necessary goods for my home. Beds, furniture, cleaning supplies, food, housewares…it’s a lot. Meanwhile since my job is starting later than I thought I’m starting to scrape the bottom of the barrel with finances and am forced to sell a couple things in order to stay afloat. That’s fine with me though….I mean who really NEEDS a 23″ Cinema Display LCD?
Last but not least, I’ve begun to really enjoy mixing my own drinks instead of paying 6-10 dollars a pop at restaurants. A trip or two to the local drug store fixed all that. Tonight I made a very tasty combination of pineapple juice, melon liqueur, raspberry flavored vodka, and coconut rum. Don’t worry, I’m not turning into a drunk Everything in moderation, of course.
