Day 7: Seven Wonderful things that happened in 2015

7 Wonderful things that happened in 2015

  1. Moved to Colorado – If you’ve been following me at all this year you already know I moved to to Colorado at the beginning of the year. Me wanting to move to Colorado has been a dream of mine for a long time and it finally happened
  2. Reconnected with family – Although this was under less than favorable circumstances. Two funerals. We’re even talking about getting together for a cousins day for those of that’s going to be in the DC area for Christmas and we established a committee to get together for a long weekend. It’s all official-like too. A ‘President’ so to speak, a secretary, someone who’s in charge of the entertainment, a treasurer (that’s me). Not sure why they put me charge of money. I’m a skinflint.
  3. Met some really great people – Making friends for me is not easy and those that I have had the pleasure to come in contact with over the last 11 months, I value.
  4. Discovered Voodoo Donuts, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Duffyrolls – There is an apparent theme here.
  5. Got my Colorado Driver’s License
  6. Drove my car across country
  7. Got my car registered in Colorado

2015 was a pretty exciting year for me. And I look forward to what 2016 has in store for me. I have a feeling my aunt is right. I’m going to ‘Blow up’.

OMG It Finally Happened

These past few days have been a whirlwind. One of my goals for this year was to move to Denver, Colorado. I expected to put out a few applications at the beginning of the year and hopefully be out there by summer.

Well, I’ll be damned. I’ll be out there on my new job February 2nd. I have so much to do. Packing, finding a place to stay, getting my stuff out there. I thought I’d have more time.

It hasn’t been 24 hours since I accepted and I’m so overwhelmed. Finding a place is first and foremost. I’ve spent hours looking for a one, but of course am no closer. Gotta get this sorted out quick. Need to make lots of phone calls tomorrow.

Need to get some sleep, but I’m too excited and worried.
