Back in Ohio for some weeks now. Not much going down as usual. Just trying to get things put back in order with jobs and school. Feeling optimistic about everything, just missing New York already. Ready to push hard the next few years and get this whole school idea done.
Vacation was nice! Perhaps it was just the fact of being somewhere 600 miles away from anywhere I lived. Perhaps it was the beach that I could actually swim in. To any effect, it was needed.
So the move from New York back to Ohio for school is almost here. The move will be simple. This desicion was made in order to work solely on school.
So today starts my first real vacation in a very long time. It seems odd to me that at the most simple and poorest time of my life, I get a real vacation. Any trips taken in the last 5 years was a trip with a purpose other then to relax. This week is different. The only goal _is_ to relax. The family and I are heading down to Hilton Head, SC to tour, golf, and swim.
A descison has been made about my life and it’s future. I am moving out of New York and headed right back to Columbus. I decided this because I really want to return to Ohio State in the next year. It makes sense from a financial standpoint to return while I am still a legal resident of Ohio. Does this mean I hate New York? No. I can tell you that I will miss it very much and plan to return after I am done with college. Going to the city and working a job that just pays the bills was a big buzz killer and made it very hard to do more fun things in my free time. I did accomplish what I set out to do and that is important. I figured out who I am and how much harder life really can be. I know what I want and I know what I have to do. Now it is time to use this knowledge.
So life is strange. I spend all my time working and sleeping with a meal or two somewhere in there. Guess being busy is good enough tho.
The last three months in New York have proven to be a challenge. I started a new job a few weeks ago answering phones for a Salon company in the city. I don’t like it and it feels as if I am getting farther away from my goals. This said, I might give that one up. On another job related note, I am in the process of doing things right and working on getting into my field of interest. I have made contact with someone that seems to be willing to help me get to the level I want to be at. If I do indeed get this job, I will be one step closer to a better life both mentally and with money. Here is to hoping for the best.
For those of you who have not seen a post on the http://www.dersoldat.org site, I have now setup wordpress to crosspost to both my main blog and to myspace. Those who know my computer talks know that simplicity is the key to perfection. This is just yet another prime example of this. I just write the blog once, and boom, it appears at both locations. This now means I might want to get dersoldat.org setup better then it is.
Planning on a trip back to Ohio to gather up the remaining bits of my stuff at the old apartment and moving it to New York. The last month of rent has been paid and we must be out of the place in Ohio by the end of the month. It will be a good excuse to visit all my friends back there as well.
Next project, finish website…
So, finally have internet at the apartment! No long is it required that I go to either Bryant Park or a Library to check email or anything like that. It took a bit of work and finding a good signal, but I am happy with the connection.
