Going, going... to Cali(fornia).... and other such things.

God forbid I call it "Cali," or refer to the the city as "San Fran" or (gasp!) "Frisco." I guess it is kind of like someone referring to Indianapolis and basically the entire south central region of Indiana as "Indy." There are specific cities, one of which I have lived in for about 9 years now. Bloomington. Bloomington, IN.... home of IU; "Sink the Biz;" and a vast array of college memories. I HEART Bloomington.

Big changes in my life. Found a fantastic new job, so I'm packing up the small things and moving. I'm giving up couches I've lived on; a bed I've had since I was 2; and a new television I've had an intense love affair with since last year. It is scary, but strangely exhilirating. I hope this whole, "discarding of the material things" will help me find out... something...

This space may help me reduce the clutter (physical and mental) I feel like I have. And since this is being published on the Internet, I'll take the time to write, therefore, examining my thoughts more thoroughly. I tend to get lazy and comfortable in life, and basically fly at altitude. I NEED to be a fighter pilot, making turns and dips that makes me want to vonku* and my eyes tear up. This move to California, and this here blog, is just that.

I've envied my friends that have successfully blogged and have had me hooked onto their lives and times. This is my attempt at joining that exclusive circle...

And for now, I'm out. I'm in the midst of cleaning, packing and taking in all that I can of Bloomington before I head off into the sunset.

*vonku - Konkani GSB word for "vomit." Great, isn't it?

Wouldn't heading into the sunset literally cause you to be burned alive?

Yes. I'll be careful if I am being literal about it.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again - SO PROUD OF YOU. It's hard leaving a place that has become home, but you're off to other adventures. Can't wait to read about them!
