I've been in Colorado Springs almost 2 years, and now that's coming to an end. At first, I was considering going back home, but the population there is just the way I left them. I miss my family, but it's not wroth it in the condition 'Patch is still in - for my own sake. I've decided to head down to New Mexico, but the bus doesn't go to Santa Fe, so I'll be headed to Albuquerque... without a choose in that matter.,
I'm looking for a ride, rather than take the bus. Just something to meet a new person, and have a more consistent person to talk to. I know the other hand of a bus being safer, and more convenient, but if I always took the convenient route I wouldn't like myself or the people around me. The bus isn't ruled out, in any case. I just need money for the ticket, as of right now ($$0+tax and luggage).
I'll miss all the people I've met, and I'll remember all the things I've done. It's sad to leave them beyond, but I'm glad I'm finally moving on. I originally wanted to head to OR and PA, but during winter that's unreasonable. NM is directly down, so that should make less harder to get to. Even if I have to walk/ hike/ hitchhike down it's still not what it would take to get to OR or PA. I know I've talked about OR already, but PA might be new. I was reminded that NewGrounds HQ is in PA, and the good folks and fellow members of the site always love to have to have the more the merrier in HQ territory! Also, it's not as costly as OR, but it's just as good, for the most part that I know of. They are doing well with LGBTQ rights, they have heath-care, but they are have an issue with voter rights. Heading out there would give me something in a non-profit position in that area. I'm very much about equality and justice, and we don't have anything (civil) if we can't vote! As that is the base of all issues I feel duty bound to help. For my own interests, I believe it's the only state with healthcare that is having that issue. The other states having voter rights violation issues are max-GOP and reused the heathcare expansion. It's great to be able to fight for a cause and stay healthy while one does it!
I'm going to stay in NM for the winter and head out come warm weather. If I get set back and have to stay longer I can deal with it alot better than if it were to happen in 'Patch. I've also decided that I want to be a Pharmacy Tech. Simply in the event my travels come to and end, or I have to take an extended stay somewhere (like what happened here). A pharmacy doesn't seem like an environment that harbors a mass amount of dram. There's also a catch when working with people, but different places have different priorities giving a different set of people with a different set of goals. I'm not the type hang out with co-workers, gossip, or anything like that. Work is work, and everything else is separate. And, if someone does mess around it will be easy to report them. Or, just kick their ass and keep moving the meds. I'll figure out how that's going to work later, though.
Heading out in mid/ late Jan. I'll see you soon, Albuquerque!
