My car's totally not starting at all anymore. It went through a new battery in a day. I'm gonna see if I can get some salvage yard to buy it off me for parts.|
Leaving in about 3 days. Still need to get a big suitcase and pack stuff. Excited, but I don't know if the move has sunk in yet.
I had to pick up a prescription today, so I was acquainted with the joys of public transportation. Had to wait out in the sun for a while. McDonald's smoothies are unurprisingly not that good.
*EXCITING NEW CHAPTER IN MY LIFE ABOUT TO BEGIN*
*OREGONIAN VISION-QUEST CHAPTER ABOUT TO END*
Oregon's a strange, mystical, fairy-tale kinda place. I don't know if I can say it's been good to me, but it's certainly helped me to grow quite a bit. I'm gonna miss Ashley a lot but our romantic relationship was never all that healthy. I've got Alan, Sara, and possibly Andrew to hang out with (also, Don) when I get to San Antonio, and I'm confident that I can make some new friends in San Marcos. Also, Lalique's visiting in August.
I wish to shit my car worked so I could go out and say a proper goodbye to a few places around here, but it is not so. Maybe I'll visit again someday. If I do, I'll make it a point to go camping or something, finally.
Texas is a much more straightforward kind of environment. You can always see the sky and the horizon, and the sun beats down on you continuously until it sets dramatically. I've actually never seen San Marcos before, but I hear it's very scenic. I don't know if that compares with Oregon-scenic, but I bet it's still nice. A river apparently runs through the campus and you can take scuba-diving classes! I hope I can get the classes around the times I want to take them, but I may be scraping the bottom of the curricular barrel here.
