Why don't people just give me money? I'm awesome!

I am in quite the predicament, at present. I have no job. I have not had a job for a month and a half, now. I am going on a road trip for about 8 or 9 days (leaving today). I am moving out in September (which means I need to get together around $1000 dollars by Sept. 1). Unlike in the past when I would just give up, and bail out of the lease, I'm not doing that. I may go back to canvassing (door-to-door fundraising for environment), who knows. But I will take any job, and possibly multiple jobs to make this work. I am going to be responsible, and do whatever it takes to get this money and to make rent (and hopefully still save a little for LA).

Outside of this, my life is pretty good. I did a lot of drinking last week, which was nice. I've been hanging out with friends, reading occasionally, working out from time to time. I quit smoking! Well, mostly. Outside of money and work, life is great. And I'm really excited for this trip.

Everyone have fun while I'm gone, but not too much. I'll see you in 9 days.

Occasional Update of Tom's Life

Here's the scoop, (did I just say "here's the scoop?")

Fuckin' A, (too bro-ish...)

Hey, (that's better)

I'm sure all of you are just dying to hear about my life. I'm so important to each and every one of you. I know. (I keep being tempted to say "so, here's the scoop!" I think I'm in a very Hardy Boys, flood-pants wearing, geeked out mood right now. So, pay no attention to the terrible wording that is about to be flooding your eyes.)

I'm moving into a house in September. It's on Catherine, in Kerrytown. Very cool place. I'm in the process of finishing up the deposit and first month's rent. I have a few months, but I'm making no plans to procrastinate. I will be living with everyone from Sara's house, Amy (their friend), and Paul (from Real Inspector Hound). They're all really cool people, and I'm very excited about the move.

Purple Rose! I will hopefully be hearing back about my callbacks within the next week. I didn't think they went spectacularly, but I hope I'm wrong. Michelle (my teacher/purple rose secret agent [I'm really lame tonight]) says that I did great and that she will keep me posted. So, cross your fingers for me.

My job sucks. I am going to be on the hunt for a new one tomorrow. I am playing it smart and not quitting before I get a new one. I've actually been fairly responsible, lately... which, for those of you who've known me for awhile know, is unusual at best. I'm trying to get a Temp job at UM. I like the idea of 9-5, right now. Knowing how much I get paid every week sounds pretty bitchin'.

I am single. Sara and I are now awesome friends, as we've always been (you would hope so, since we'll be living in the same house). And everyone has been talking to me about how it's a bad idea, or how we will DEFINITELY get back together. But I don't see it happening. We both are in different places, and we've been talking about dating other people and splitting for awhile, now. So, I am back on the dating scene. And by that I mean, "I haven't been on a single date, yet. But I've thought really hard about it." This is all probably way too much information, but I'm tired, and too lazy to highlight all this and press delete.

Halo 3, Crackdown, and many other things Xbox 360 are eating up my free time, at present. Expect that to change soon. Or later. Or never. It's an addiction.

I guess that is it. If you feel like commenting, or telling me I suck, or whatever... feel free!

This is my new blog!


Welcome to my blog! If you can see this you are probably my friend. And hopefully you know everything that is going on in my life. So, I'm done.
