Updates and Life and all around good things.  
long time no update, wow. 

well, its October and the year is coming to an end, and i'm moving towards new things once again. Since the beginning of the year, me and my dad have lived in a 2 bed/2 bath apartment here in Austin. And while the place is nice and OK, back in Feb, there was a fire that burned down the building behind us, so for the past two months, demolishion and construction and outdoor improvements have been happening. 

Sounds good right? Well, not for us. You see, me and my dad work the 3rd shift, (graveyard) so during the day when all of these renovations and building are going on, we're just getting home and trying to get some sleep. Earplugs can only go so far. So, we've been apartment hunting the past months and we came across a little community down the road from where we live. Its tucked away and quiet and the whole living area feels so much better than the place we're in now. 

I know im making it sound like its a horrible place to live, its not. Its perfect for a couple just starting out, or a student just starting out. But long term? nope. 

Anyway, we found these apartments, and we're really looking into leasing with them for a year, and see how it works out. Because the plan would be, once my dad is tired of working, he's moving back home, and im staying with the apartment. And he wants to make sure that I can afford to keep living there on my own. (And if i want, move into a one bedroom) How will all of this happen? well, im currently going through background checks and drug testing to work as a temp-to-hire for Hospira, the company that my dad works for. 
its a pharmaceutical plant where they manufacturer and  make the solution and IV bags to be shipped out to hospitals all over the world. 

Its a job with better hours, better pay, and thats whats going to help me get further and save more money to do things i want to do. 

Speaking of things i want to do, with this new job, i'll be paying he difference on the rent, picking up bills, and of course, saving up for a new car, and a plane ticket to see melissa in april. im really shooting for her birthday, so that gives me April of next year. and perhaps stay for 4 days. 

so im going to start budgeting things again, and i want to stay on top of things and not be broke anymore. 
but yea, lots of things that are going to happen over the next few months and im excited.
