I was thinking about taking a trip soon to Michigan to see my parents but then I remembered that I would have to see my sister. I’m still more than a little salty that not only did she not attend J’s memorial but she didn’t even send me a sympathy card. So I’m going to give myself some time to get over my hurt feelings.
But in the meantime, maybe I’ll take a road trip up to Colorado with Dyl and Sav. I talked to my dad yesterday and he said that he absolutely fell in love with Boulder and he thinks I would too.
We talked about moving in general and to my surprise, he said it makes very little difference whether I’m in Texas or Colorado or somewhere on the west coast.
I have to admit that I’ve always been curious about the west coast and it seems like the kind of place where I might be happier.
I know that you can’t always chase the idea that you’ll be happier somewhere else. But at the same time, Texas really isn’t it for me anymore.
I’ve spent so long looking at options outside this country but haven’t given much thought to going other places here. Maybe I should.
In the meantime, I really have to get to work on writing my novels. I’m going to publish them under a fake name and they’ll just be mostly cheesy erotica. But if I’m honest it will still likely be better than a lot of the stuff that’s already out there.
I just have to get started and keep going with it until hopefully I’ll make enough money that I can leave here.
