Life Is Change; Change Is Life

Ever since the election, which had been a referendum on Obama's failed economic policies, my spirits have been slightly uplifted and there is real hope on the horizon. It's going to take a lot of time to fix everything that the Obama administration broke, which they thought was a fix to what they thought was broke in the first place, but really wasn't.

It's going to take time for the economy to recover from Obama's disastrous policies. Jobs are few and far between and nobody's looking to hire anyone in the architecture industry with real-world experience. It's coming up on 2 years now and I'm still trying to find a job in what I went to school for.

However, I had received and invite from my very good friend, to go on down to Virginia for a few days and look for work down there. If I find a job, I'll be moving out of the Empire State - an empire of idiotic politicians that do nothing but tax and spend, and then wonder why the state is bankrupt, especially when the people they want to tax the most are business owners who can't afford these policies.

I'll be leaving most of my family behind, although I do have an older brother who lives in Maryland. I don't talk to him at all, and I probably won't bother to visit him either. You can pick your friends, but you can't pick your family. However, you can choose to ignore the ones that made your life a living hell growing up, and he did just that. I've long since forgiven him, and I would be there in a heartbeat if he was in trouble, but other than that, I'd rather not have to deal with him. He tends to go off on his high-horse and look down on everyone. It also doesn't help him that he's extremely arrogant and can't admit when he's wrong. So you can imagine trying to have a conversation with him, when his mind's already made up about this, that or the other thing. Yeah, not going to go visit him.

So, anyway, where was I? Oh yeah, moving down to Virginia. Isn't it sad that in order for me to exercise my 2nd Amendment rights, I have to move out of one state in the Union into another? Before I make my move, I'm going to have to a tonneau cover installed on my truck so I can pack up all my guns and ammo and bows and arrows and get them all down to Virginia in one trip, and then come back, rent a U-Haul truck with a vehicle trailer and move the rest of my stuff down. Or, if mileage is free, I'll just rent the U-Haul down there and use that instead. It's gonna be a lot of work, but it'll be well worth it in the end. Wish me luck.


  1. Welcome to the Old Dominion! We can use you as an excuse for a Blogmeet.

  2. Good luck mate, I hope this works out well for you.

  3. Nancy, I'll be down the weekend after Thanksgiving, so maybe Newbius will want to do something then.

    Tarb, thank you, my friend.
