Moving on

I'll be disabling this journal in a couple of weeks. I've moved everything over to Dreamwidth (http://opcoded.dreamwidth.org). With the change in the TOS here, I don't feel comfortable continuing this journal even though I've had it since the early days of LJ. If you want to follow me, you can find me over on DW at the link above. Be seeing you!

Well the arrangement I had to stay with a friend here in Seattle have kind of gone south on me.

Not sure what I'm going to do at the moment, but I'd like to find somewhere to stay that's more long-term while I continue my job search. I have a couple of leads with temp agencies for some positions, but it doesn't do me much good to pursue them when the rest of my life is such a mess.

Starting to think maybe coming back to Seattle wasn't such a good idea after all, at the rate I'm going.

Tempted to just work my way back to Ohio somehow. At least there I had a roof over my head.
Well the place to stay I had all set up in Seattle for next week fell through, so now I'm scrambling to find somewhere else to stay. The people I've been staying with since I got here are awesome, but they have stuff going on and don't need me in the way, so if ANYONE has crash space available for a guest for a few weeks it would be greatly appreciated. Prefer downtown Seattle/lower Queen Anne/Capitol Hill area as that's where my job search focus is at the moment.

I'd be willing to help out a bit around the house as much as I can with my health issues in return. I don't mind doing that at all.

Excited about my trip on Saturday back to Seattle. For those of you who have been following things for the last month or so over on Facebook, I have been trying to get back to Seattle for a bit now so I can find a decent job and work on getting a place to live for my fiancee and myself and her son. I want to do right by them because they mean the world to me.

I have to work hard if I want to pull this off. I have newfound purpose in life now, and I have someone who loves and supports me in everything I do and that means more to me than anything ever possibly could.

So I'll be in Seattle on Saturday morning. Should be a fun trip given that I've never flown by myself before, and am very unfamiliar with TSA regulations. Thankfully, I've been doing a ton of research on it so I think I'll be quite prepared by the time I'm ready to go.
Since I have been out of work for so long and am in the middle of relocation to Seattle I have put together this donation page. Everything donated will be put torwards purchase of a bus pass for the month of October as well as clothes and other supplies for the purpose of job hunting. I really want to do this because this will help me get closer to my goal of bringing my fiancee and her son out to Seattle.


Loss.

My grandmother passed away about an hour ago. She was my last surviving grandparent, and I'm still in shock over it all.

It's going to take a bit before I'm able to process everything that's going through my head right now.

Homesick.

And that's just the start of it all. I know I said I was enjoying being in Ohio, but I really just want to go back to Seattle.

My fiancee and I have discussed it and if I can find the means, I'm going to try to get back home. I don't know what I'll do once I get back there, but I need out of Ohio. My health and my sanity are suffering here because I can't get around. I'm tired of walking to the same places. I need access to public transportation.

Nice thing is though, I found a flight on Orbitz going from Dayton to Seattle with one stop for under $200 if I fly after Labor Day. That was pretty cool.

Anyways, yeah... I needed to vent because I feel like I'm just plain stuck here. I'm not remotely happy about it, but I figure after a year and a half I would have gotten used to it, but no, not really.
Actor Peter Graves dies following a heart attack at age 83.

The man had such an incredible career. Airplane! and the Mission Impossible series (especially the 80s one) were such a part of my youth growing up. He was such a brilliant actor and will definitely be missed.
Pete, you were one of the first people in the Seagoth community I ever met, and I'll still remember hanging out with you helping set up for Sarah's rooftop party. One of the most memorable nights I'll ever have and you were a big part of that.

Rest well, my friend. You will be missed.
Ken Ober, former host of MTV's Remote Control, has passed away at age 52 after a brief illness. I used to watch Remote Control every day when I came home. It was one of the few game shows I could really get into. Ken Ober was the perfect host for a show about TV obsession.
Wow... um.

I'm not sure exactly what I think of this, but it's definitely a huge announcement.

Disney to acquire Marvel Entertainment for $4 Billion dollars.

Happy birthday [livejournal.com profile] misscerridwen! Hope you have a good one, lady!
Okay, well I guess I should probably post something here since people are likely wondering what the hell happened to me :)

Like I've said before - things in Ohio are great. It's going along slowly and I've been here about 3 months now, and it feels like I've belonged here all my life. My girlfriend's ex not withstanding, her son is a pretty good kid and fairly easy to deal with for the most part (he's mildly autistic, so that's presented a few challenges).

We spent the 4th of July over in Mason watching Huey Lewis and the News. I took some pictures, which I will likely upload to my Flickr account and link to here.

I've just been keeping pretty quiet because things have been moving along at a leisurely pace, and while I don't always respond to people here, I still do read quite a bit and do my best to keep up.

Oh, and I guess I should mention the big news - I proposed to my girlfriend on July 1st, and she accepted. We're tentatively shooting for next October 1st, but that depends on a number of factors (finances, employment etc.)

Other than that? I couldn't be happier.

Sad to hear about the passing of the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] vorona, or Ivy Green as many of us knew her. I met her back in 1999 and she was such a wonderful person to talk to. While we hadn't really spoken over the years, I would always try and make an attempt to say hello whenever I saw her. She really did have a huge impact on a lot of people's lives, and really was a great sounding board for a lot of people. Outspoken and generous to a fault, she was more than willing to help out if someone needed her assistance. She will definitely be missed.

Alright, that's enough of my jabbering. I'll try and post more often, I promise :)
This is one reason why I will NEVER, EVER give money to those fucking idiots at PETA:

PETA to protest fish-flying exhibition

I love going to the market and watching them throw the fish. Besides, the fish are ALREADY DEAD. What's harming them?

This planet is full of fucking IDIOTS sometimes.

Oh yeah. Hi, btw. I'm BACK.
