I got it!

Believe it or not I think I'm actually starting to figure out this blogspot bit. I don't really know what I'll write her but I'm kind of digging this thing. Maybe it is because no one really knows about it. Maybe it is because it is challenging and I like a good challenge. Speaking of a good challenge I should get back to that lecture. Blah!

Small Town Culture Shock...

Small Town Culture Shock…

There are some things I have forgotten about life in a small town and my temporary move home has jogged my memory. Let me share a few with you.

- Driving to the closest Wal-Mart is a big deal.
- Driving to the closest Meijer is inconvenient and out of the way.
- Not having power for several days isn’t really that big of a deal.
- You are unable to rent some of last year’s most popular films because no one has heard of them.
- If you can’t get everything at the same store it isn’t worth it.
- Some big guy from the county decided it would be a good idea to put in a sewer system that will cost $8000 per unit and thinks people will love the idea. (for perspective: School – over 100 units and Camp – over 80 units)
- The only thing to do here is thinking, but most people don’t know how.
- Everything is over priced at the grocery store, including locally grown produce!
- Ear protection is required for self check-out lanes.

I’m not making this stuff up my friends. I wanted to get ice cream the other day and it ended up being this HUGE deal. I’ve been painting with my dad to help pay the bills and all I do while I work is think. Then I come home and have to study and by the end of the day my brain is tired. This much thinking could be hazardous to my health! I went grocery shopping with my mom and the self check-out lane literally screams out the price of every item to you. My ears hurt after the third item. BUT…

Vestaburg does have wireless high speed internet! Eat that Niles!!

New blog?

New blog?
I think I have decided to start posting some thoughts here. But then perhaps I won't.
