I prayed real hard last night and today I went and applied for food stamps so I’ll have money to feed myself as I get situated. I also made a trip up to Portland, OR for VooDoo Doughnuts! Amazingly yummy and cool to look at. I got a call and I start work tomorrow! Any day now I will hear back from apartments I applied to! So close to getting everything secure. Praise God!
Today I went apartment hunting in Salem and found many options, all very cheap. I found 3 I liked the most. 1 has the set up like New York, indoor hallways to your front door, small but cozy. The 2nd one had a decent size living space small like the first one with a different set up that felt more like a home, outside facing door though. The 3rd one had outside door and a patio, big living space and dining area a lot more like a home. Two of them have to do background checks and credit checks. One of them will take anyone! So I’m hoping all the checks come back positive so I can have my pick of the 3. I’ll be happy and any of them though. And my hope is to have a place of my own in the next week. Pray pray pray for me please!
Okay, so I moved to Oregon and it has been almost two weeks now. First bit of it I was staying at a hotel just figuring things out and I got a bit nervous that I wouldn’t find a place I liked. Well this week my friend came and he has family here so I am staying with them, which is awesome!!!
His aunt took us on a tour and I realized this place is exactly what I am looking for. Also extremly cheap compaired to California. I can work part time and still afford a studio apartment at $475 a month with plenty of money for other bills and entertainment. I even got a chance to check out lne of many local churches.
I got a job secured and tomorrow I will get a PO box. Soon with my next check or two I’ll be able to get a place and I can’t wait. My friend said he loved it so much he might just stay too!
All those struggling in California I encourage the move to Oregon where they seem to do things the right way!
Okay so it is one week away that I will be moving my life to Oregon there is lot more to get done but here is a list since I love lists of things I have have been busy doing:
- Updated and mailed out resume packages.
- Had a few interviews via phone/skype.
- Went through my belongings and donated all things I didn’t need.
- Went shopping for things I did need.
- Rotated my tires, oil change, smog check, dmv registration, cleaned car.
- Paid bills for May & June ahead of time.
Now all thats left is to pack, and spend time with those I love. :)
Is there anything I havr forgotten!?
Okay, so I’ve quit my job and now decide to move states with less than $3000. Am I insane? Most likely. Am I going to let that stop me? No. I just need to figure out what really needed to blow that money on and what is not. Then it will be a piece of cake. Even though I don’t like cake. Okay so it will be a tall cup of coffee…black. There thats more motivating!
Went well and seems very promising, just have to meet in person to seal the deal. :)
Now that I have left the hotel I’ve been stagnant in for seven years, I have prayed and followed my heart strings which has lead me to what you see above. To move to Oregon, and create myself an independent life I’ve been looking for. With or without the support of those around me. This feels right and I have to go for it. If I don’t go for it now, I’ll never know!
I quit my job that I have had for 7 years and 6 months. The management is unprofessional, I was over worked and under compensated. There was lack of appreciation for my loyalty.
This has opened so many doors for me I am so excited however there are a few details I have to work out, but I am sure once I do, I’ll be flying forward faster than I ever expected!
Yesterday I went crazy and decided to get my friend and I each an Undertow from Starbucks and a venti carmel frapp. I got myself a 2nd to try a new flavor, that way if I didn’t like it I still have my original choice. Well by about 9:30pm I hit my crash hard, which I don’t do on a normal because I am an addict when it comes to coffee. So today I figured I would treat myself to one simple undertow and then start drinking water on my way to work, this way I have somthing to look forward to, it is cheaper and it will help me cut back. I did a good job but when I got to work today my coworker was nice enough to have brought me an undertow and a cup of coffee from Starbucks! I’m in so much trouble! hahaha
