I'm a Kansan now.

I just got to Kansas yesterday. Shane and I drove a moving truck and towed my car twenty hours across the country. Shane was pretty scared of driving so I drove like 18 of the 20 hours which I didn't mind at all because it kept me from being bored. It was actually pretty fun. Huckleberry sat in the middle and was surprisingly really well behaved the entire two-day ride.

We're moving into our apartment on Friday and I start work on Monday. I talked to my new boss Connie on the phone and through my home office e-mail, and she seems really nice. She said my pay's not dropping and there's plenty of work for me here in Wichita, so I'm pretty excited.

I miss my friends a lot, but I don't miss Shane anymore. I can look across the room and there he is lol. It's so weird. I'm really excited though. I love him a lot.

The time change is also really weird. I'm an hour behind what I was so all my friends are going to bed now and it's only 11:22.

I made friends with one of Shane's friends Brandon, who gave me his number tonight. I really like his girlfriend Kristen. I haven't really had a chance to talk to anyone else, but I think I'm going to like the people here.

And he's getting me into WoW! I'm not sure if that's exciting or not. lol

Thanks a lot, Mark!

lol, He bought me WoW last night. He's really excited about it and it's cute, and I can't say no. :/ It should be fun! As long as I don't stop doing other stuff I do like working on my sites and seeing friends, I don't think it'll be a problem.

I know. Everybody tells me. ;) I'll be sure to tell him you said so.

He's gonna be here in a month to visit me! I'm pretty excited.

Waaah. This is so amazing to hear! Glad that you had a safe trip dude! :)

I'm so super psyched for you! It must be so exciting. You'll have to take photos of the apartment!

Thanks Andrew! I will definitely take pictures when everything is said and done.

Oh wow that sounds so exciting! I really want to move out soon too, but wow, across the country! That is definitely big! So brave for making that decision! I'd be too scared and want to stay with familiarity even if I move :(

As someone who's done all the WoW end game content that is available in WoW three times on three different characters .... SAVE YOURSELF!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've been moved out since I turned 18, but I have always lived in South Carolina. This is huge for me. My instinct is to stay with familiarity, but Kansas is best for me and Shane right now, and I do have a lot of familiarity here -- my dog, my stuff, my sites, my online friends, and my best friend Josh is visiting in a month. I know things will be great.

lol, I think it's too late to turn back on WOW now, but I don't think I'll get as into it as Shane is! For me, it'll be something to do with Shane when I'm bored or he wants me to play.

I don't think it's a good thing to get obsessed with WoW. Lots of wasted time alone, and lots of money wasted.

I'm happy you are safe and happy in your new location. Hope you can share this experience to others to give them the courage to make huge leaps.

I'll be doing it with my boyfriend when I play so it won't really be wasted time alone. The money issue I see, though. I can't really see myself wanting to play WoW without him, but who knows.

Thanks Varen! A lot of people tried to tell us long distance relationships don't work. I think now they can shut up. ;) I still can't believe he's right here. I know some friends who have long distance relationships right now, and I know seeing me and Shane together gives them hope for themselves. It's a really cool feeling.

That's so great! I hope the final stages of the move-in are smooth as buttah, I'm sure it's been a lot of hard work so far ^_^

Heh, WoW is a fun pastime & it helps that your SO plays as well.

Good luck!

Thanks man. We get to move in tomorrow afterall, so we'll have the truck and that makes it a lot easier.

I think you're the only one of my friends pro-wow ;). I'm gonna at least try it out.

Bah, you're not an hour behind! You're finally on the *right* time, that's all. ;)

American Idol comes on an hour earlier now, so I'm excited. :-D

*nod* TV programming is timed so much better if you're a Central time person.
