A New Roulette…Minus the Boobies.

without comments

SO…

You know Chat Roulette? The place where you can video chat with people or penises? Well, Brazen Careerist just launched it’s own roulette, without the penises. Networking Roulette is a 3 minute chat session with people all over the hot social network, Brazen Careerist. There is no video so you have to hold your own with your words or your chat partner might “next” you. Read the rest of this entry »

Living without rules..actually sucks

with one comment

SO…As you can tell, I haven’t blogged in a little while. I have a ton of half-finished blog posts sitting on my computer waiting for me to get my shit together and finish them. The problem is that my mind is mush right now and I’m totally unfocused. After a lengthy discussion with the hottie I’m seeing (dating with a small d),  he brought up a good point: I LIKE RULES.

Rules

I like Rules!!

I don’t currently have any rules or structure in my life. I’m an unemployed mess. I spend my most of my days as follows: job hunting, going to the pool, going to the gym, watching tv, playing on facebook & twitter, and hanging out with my friends if I feel like it. Read the rest of this entry »

Part 2 Moving

with 12 comments

In order to have a “proper” quarter life crisis, I know I have to do something big. My big idea is to move to a new place and start over. I’ve narrowed it down to 2 dream cities with more dream locations to be added later:

Austin, TX
Raleigh, NC

Well I told my parents last week about this big move and they were ok with it. Both of them would really like me to come back to North Carolina where I’m from but I’m leaning more towards Austin. The other day, my mom calls because she’s freaked out about the guy flying his plan into the IRS building in Austin. She then proceeds to give me a lecture on how dangerous it is in Austin.

Whoa whoa whoa! Simma down!
  While the situation in Austin isn’t minor, there are a ton of bad people everywhere in the world. Regardless of where I go (unless it’s Raleigh where most of my friends from college now are) I’m going to be a single girl in a new city with like no friends. Sometimes when I think about it, it feels like I’m going to have a target stuck on my back. Then I remember the power of social media.



I’m currently a member of LinkedIn, Brazen Careerist and Twitter but before these were around, I was a member of PartyEastCarolina.com (which is currently down) This was my original social media place because I didn’t even have MySpace then (I didn’t see the point of myspace) but this message board was THE place to be for East Carolina students. I pretty much made all my “in real life” good friends from this site including one of my best friends. I’m pretty much hoping that I can do this again with different networking sites. I plan on going to tweetups when I actually get to Austin and to try some new activities like actually going to a class at a gym to meet some new peeps.

I’m friendly so that must mean I can make friends right? Well we can only hope…


What do you think are good ways to make new friends when relocating to a new area?

So we moved to Endicott.
Our new house is WAY nicer.
Living here still sucks.
I’m bored on weekends.
I’m off this Friday so I want to go somewhere out of town.
The boyfriend doesn’t want to go anywhere.
I miss the people I called friends.
I miss going out and doing stuff.
I think I’m going to join a new gym.
I think I’m actually going to go to said gym.
I’m using Twitter A LOT.
Follow me: www.twitter.com/happywalks
The boyfriend and I have watched the entire 3 seasons of Heroes.
Now we are bored again.
I’ve been fishing lately.
I want to out on a boat and go fishing.
I still have my job.
They just finished layoffs at work.
I’m currently reading “The Gatecrasher” by Madeleine Wickham.
I should be reading stuff for that book reviewer thing.
The books for reviewing were very boring.
My car died on the way to work sometime last month.
I had to pay alot to get my car fixed.
I got a new cell phone.
It’s touch screen.
I’m now kinda broke.
I tried going on a diet.
It worked for about 3 hours :(
I like to eat.

You are now pretty caught up on my life. Isn’t that sad?
