It's been a while since I posted so I sort of feel obligated to put something down.
It was my half birthday 2 days ago (April 14) so I am officially 24 and a half. A milestone I'm sure most of you remember or, perhaps, are looking forward to. I still look about 18 years old though, which is hard sometimes. It seems like just yesterday I could pass for 12.
I also bought a guitar this month and although I enjoy it, it can also be frustrating at times. A friend of mine is teaching me, so I don't have to pay for lessons, which is nice. The guitar I bought is an acoustic-electric Ibanez. It came in a kit which also had an amp, and other guitar essentials. I recommend purchasing one if you have ever been interested in learning. It's never too late. I don't want to be a rockstar or anything, but, it will probably happen anyway because as it turns out, I'm pretty much amazing at everything I do. I am also very modest, as you can tell.
This last weekend I went to Ventura to visit my friend who was also coming for a visit as well as my parents. I didn't tell my parents I was coming, mostly out of laziness, but also so they wouldn't have to be extremely anxious for my arrival.
While I was there I put my parents to work. My dad fixed my car (replaced the brakes, and belts) and my mom did some sewing for me. I would like to take this time to publicly thank them for helping me with those things. I greatly appreciate it, even though my car still shakes violently when I hit the brakes. Which is not my dads fault, I was just hoping that new brakes would fix the problem. No worries though, he is going to help with that next time I visit.
Finally, I would like to say that in just four weeks I will be graduating from college. I can't wait to be done, and am accepting gifts which can be sent to my sisters address (Amanda, not Melissa). Seriously though, I need some advice. My friend wants me to move to Reno when I am finished. She says we will move away from there in October, but I'm worried that I will get stuck there. I want to move to Seattle, but I'm a little scared to do it alone. Should I risk it, or just take the easy way out? Any advice you have to offer will be considered with an open mind, unless it's really stupid (which goes without saying I guess). I don't want to live in California anymore because I have lived here my whole life. In fact I have only lived in Southern California. I know I have been spoiled with the perfect weather and what not, but I am ready to explore other states as well as different weather.
