Did you miss me?
I have been in New Jersey for a week and of course promptly broke my blog soon after so that I couldn't tell you all the exciting thing that have happened.
The first thing that happened to me was the flu.
Yes, that's right. My body must hate me flying more than I do, because I get sick quite often after flights. It's not fun. So I spent all of Friday asleep or watching reruns of What Not To Wear.
I finally managed to sneak out of the house on Saturday to visit a rental agent and pick up my dad from the airport.
On Sunday, we found me a car. A nice red 2001 Ford Focus. We spent about an hour and a half at this couple's home just talking. They recommended things to do in Atlantic City and my dad and the husband made fun of me and the wife about the lack of respect towards our vehicles (we're messy).
My dad and I ventured down to the shore later that day, which was a lot of fun except we realized you have to pay to use the beach. That is ridiculous. People don't own the beach. That's like owning the forest. Weirdos.
We drove up Route 35 trying to find something to eat when we realized: People in New Jersey don't eat. We couldn't find a single restaurant. So we elected to drive all the way back and had dinner at a nice Italian restaurant in Hoboken, about four blocks from the Hudson river. Then we had water ice, a.k.a. my reason for life.
I started work on Monday, though I haven't done a terrible amount of work because I've been so consumed with finding an apartment. Rental agents suck. Don't use them. I should have known better, but I am naive and hopeful.
I think I have found my apartment though, which is exciting, but I am not sure yet if it's a one hundred percent go. I won't know if I passed the credit check until Monday.
My dad is leaving on Sunday and my mom and younger brother are arriving next Friday and they will be here until July 8.
That's all the exciting news so far. There might be something else coming up, but it's not for sure so I will just keep everyone posted.
My new blog should premiere some time next week, God-willing. I don't have my computer yet so I have to do all this from work.
Okay, back to work!
