Michigan status report

So 2 months ago today, I became a Michigander. And I still think that's a funny word. But here's a report on my status.

It's sill cold out, but less cold. We haven't had a blizzard lately. (Actually I think there was one a coupla weeks ago, but we were in Florida, so it doesn't count.) There is still a tiny bit of snow on the ground, but today being the first day of Spring, it is actually a very nice day. Spring is my fave season, so we'll see how the weather progresses.

I still don't have a job, and now I'm starting to feel the hurt. I'm a very lucky girl in that I don't have to worry about rent or food or any of that (thank you Jay!), but I can't buy myself fun things or pay my credit cards so much. And yes, the economy here is bad. Blame rests mostly with the auto industry, which has nuthin to do with what I'm lookin for, but does convince everyone that they need to keep the job they have. Basically, nobody is hiring so des is still jobless.

I haven't gotten to explore too much. I've never even been to Detroit proper. But I have found lots of cool places to hang and eat (and drink) and whatev. Once the weather gets a bit warmer and I get some money, more fun will be had. I still miss NYC, and CA for that matter, but I'm doing things I couldn't do in either of those places. It's all about experiences, right?

And we musn't forget the reason I live here in the first place. (Gushing alert!) My wonderful boyfriend Jason has kept me very happy and I'm not just saying that because he's reading this. So overall, I'm in a good place. Once I get a job I'll be in a better place. But that'll happen soon enough.

So there you have it, a kinda boring post today, but I needed to write something.

Spring. The word alone brought tears to my eyes when I was in Canada for a long Winter so I know how it is. Of course you'll find something soon and we'll get to hear all kinds of funny about your job.

yes, you had to write something. without suzanne on daily update duty (too 'cause you both post boatloads, which i enjoy), i would've had nothing to read! and since i'm boringly sick... my posting is lackadaisical. not that i have the (cult) following that you do anyway.

Pea, the sun is shining and I have that urge to go run in a field somewhere. I still need my jacket, but not the heavy winter coat.

mar, I'm totally going through CUSS withdrawals too. It's dumb luck that I am uninspired the same time Suze is in London. :P

I think it's going to snow tonight or tomorrow. Welcome to Michigan!

There's a 30% chance, but I'm convinced there's always a 30% chance of snow here.

Yeah, but there is a 100% chance of a bright bouncy ball of sunshine this weekend for you I bet. :)
