Tonight I got back home to Brooklyn, and I am excited/nervous.
I have a lot to do back home, so it wont really feel like a vactaion. I need to sort through the rest of my stuff and bring back some stuff to Phoenix. I am also going to try to bring back my bike. I am flying jetblue and they allow bikes in their cargo bay for a fee. I think their fee would be cheaper than shipping it Fedex so I think I will see about getting it on the plane with me.
Then I have to see some friends and my cats!! I miss Diablo :(
On wednesday, I have a Mu Alpha Theta get-together to go to at Kingsborough. I was never inducted into Mu Alpha Theta, and I remember asking one of my professors why and he said you had to have a good average. I had a B average which was all that was required. I dunno. I just spoke to the lady running the thing and she was also confused as to why I was not inducted. So maybe I will be inducted after seven years? Well, in any case, I am going because it would be nice to see KCC again. Free snacks help too, lol.
Then I will go shopping for some never ending summer clothes! Its been over 90 for a while now and its been over 100 for the past few days here in the Vally of the Sun. By the way, when they say it gets sunny here, they mean it gets sunny. I have a trucker tan on my left arm. I never thought Id be tan again. Well, guess things have changed.
Speaking of change, many things have changed for me in the past few months. You know, new job, new skill, new city, new home, new school opportunities (ASU FINALLY!!!) new everything basically. I feel very good about my choices lately. I dont make a shitload of money but I can support myself and that was something I always wanted. And my new job is freakin' awesome. I dont mind working (and sweating) in this heat at all. I like it! Sure beats highs of 13 degrees! I drive my truck and I am getting so good at shifting. I am finally becoming excited about my other route that I have to drive the big dawg on. Ive gained a lot of confidence on my current route and getting used to these transmissions. I drove the pup (28' trailer; tractor) and I wasnt too bad! Even the Fedex Freight guy at one stop was impressed that I backed up in the hole all straight given my minimal experience. Now that made me feel good.
Im also going to visit my old station (ZYP) and my old ramp (JFK) to see some peeps! I wish I could give out some Arizona gifts but there isnt much that is very unique here except like cactus jelly but those can be gross. Maybe I should let everyone try the hard water!! LOL!!! I miss NYC water. It tastes so damn good...
Well, I was supposed to getting my stuff in order. I was supposed to be writing down the things I need to bring back or buy or whatever. I guess I should do that. So next time I write I should be in BK!
Oh yeah, here are some pics of some places Ive visited since being in Arizona:
This is is Lake Havasu City, where the London Bridge is now located:
This was when I went to Sedona with my mother. I didn't know what to do there and the pictures weren't that great. Maybe next time I will know what to do out there.
This was at the Tonto Natural Bridge. There was a waterfall and all, but I didn't have enough time to complete any trail. Maybe I will next time.
This picture shows the steepest incline on a sign Ive ever seen.
