So Raymond got me an xbox 360 for Christmas cause he loves me so much! With a pink controller! And Viva Pinata! So I of course purchased Rock Band and it came in the mail today!!! I soo love this game! I can play the drums! it is amazing. And me and Raymond made a band and now we are trying to make it big!!! It is amazing. And you can make your own rocker and then you get money and get new clothes and such. It is amazing. We played for like 3 hours tonight (till I got too tired to play anymore...I am exhausted). Seriously, if you are in the area you should come play with us and rock out!!
In other news....I told Laura today about the Pacific Crest. I was planning on waiting 2 weeks and then telling her and I was quite nervous. Today I got Rock Band at work and it is a big box and she said she would give me a ride home so I did not have to lug it up the hill. So we get in her car and she said we have to have a heart to heart. At what point do you want me to tell you if I am going to get another job? And I was just like you are leaving? And she said yeah she is looking for a new job as she is pretty miserable here, and so I said well then I should tell you that in April Raymond and I are hiking the Pacific Crest. I think next week I will put in my notice or something so they can start trying to find someone else. Laura was all why would you want to do that? You have an amazing job now...I was just like yeah, but this is something I have to do. She doesn't do physical actuvuty really, and doesn't go hiking and such and well....if someone doesn't understand why we want to do this I really cannot explain it to them. It will be amazing, even if we do not manage to finish it. Whatever time we are out there will be the best ever! I know it will be. And it will be hard, and there will be bad days, but man when I look back upon it I know I will be soo glad I did it. And Laura was all how old are you? 27? You have your whole life ahead of you! And really yes, hopefully I do, but there is a ton of stuff I want to try and cram into that. More around, live in other countries and places, and experience as much as I can. I am really not a stay in one place forever kind of person. Really I am not. I am about ready to move on from Seattle and try out something new. And also I am not liking my job anymore, which would mean tiem to move on. Honestly if I was not doing the pacific crest this year, I would probably be looking for another job right now. My thing with jobs is....as long as I do not hate it. And I got to bed all....ugh I have to go to work tomorrow. I do not like that. And I know every job will get like that sometimes, but everything that is going on at work....I really do not like it. Before Christmas I seriously almost walked out. When I get to my breaking point at least once every month it is time for something new. The only reason I am still there is because of Pacific Crest. I am so freakin excited about that!!!
So yeah, I was way stressed about telling Laura, but it worked out well. She will probably be there longer, but there is no way I want to be there if she leaves. Like she said, the shareholders would expect a lot of me and I would have to take on a lot, which I do not want. it would be all the a/r stuff which I do enough of now and dislike greatly.
In other news still....my friend Rachel is going to go to My Little Pony with me next Wed!!!! I am sooo excited!! It is going to be frekain amazing. To see what I am so excited about you should all go here: http://www.hasbro.com/mylittlepony/default.cfm?page=calendar
and watch the preview movie. The ponies are sooo creepy looking!!! It is going to be amazing. And the night before my birthday, which is nice since it is a Wed and I am taking Thurs and Fri off!! Me and Raymond are going to go somewhere (I am thinking Bellingham as we can stay at the most amazing bed and breakfast and have fun times, but Raymond wants Victoria. The problem is i still haven't gotten my passport so...I thought wait till Feb for Victoria).
Oh and on the subject of pacific crest from earlier...here is my pct journal: http://postholer.com/journal/viewJournal.php?event_id=168
There is not much on it right now, but that is where I will be updating once we start in April. i write only once and a while now, though I do use it to keep track of my training miles. So if anyone wants to keep up with what we are doing to prepare, or once we are on the go, that would be the place. Alright I think now that I got everything out I may actually be able to sleep now....
