First REAL day alone...........

snow 30 °F

So I woke up this morning to find snow all over the ground and a beautiful view from my window. It was nice to look at but I thought "Ah, crap. I have to check out today and lug around my suitcase." That sucked.

I had to check out at 10am but I couldn't check into my new place until 1pm. So I had the hotel hold my luggage so I could go to town and look around and do some internet and what not. But then I found out that the busses weren't running because of the snow. Great. So I had to walk. About 2 minutes into my walk, a van pulls up beside me and a chick yells out at me "You want a ride into town???" Heck yes!!! I got in and there was a guy names Roger and the girl was Michelle and another girl was named Sonia. They were way nice and Roger had been to San Diego before so he was familiar with where I was from. Very cool. They dropped me off and I said thanks. That was really nice.

So I went to the internet cafe, answered some emails, uploaded more photos and what not. You can see those ones on my myspace. After that I walked over to my backpackers place and checked in. The sweetest girl from England, I believe, was at the desk and she helped me out with everything. I'm in a room with one other girl and 2 other guys. I haven't met them yet but I hope they're cool.

Then I had to go back to the first hotel and get my luggage. The busses STILL weren't running so I had to hike it. By the time I got to the next stop there was a bus waiting for me. YAY!!! I went into the lobby, called a taxi and waited. The guy who picked me up was from Dublin and he only charged me 5 bucks for the ride back to the backpackers. I was telling him how it's been really pricey for me to stay here and he told me that to stick it out and give it a shot cuz the town is just wonderful and he's been here 5 years and loves it. He also told me where to go to find work which is good cuz I had no idea where to start. I'm gonna head over there today. One thing is for sure, I'm gonna lose a lot of weight living on my own cuz I have to walk EVERYWHERE!!!

I need to sort out laundry and some phone calls but other than that, I'm good for tonight I hope. I need to find some places to work for accomodation so I don't have to worry about paying to stay somewhere.

Thanks for all the nice emails and comments that some of you have sent me. I'm pretty sure that I replied to most of them. I'll be in touch.

Until next time!!!
