Worst roommate ever....

I got a new roommate this week, I am going to disguise his name for anonymity let's call him "Troy".  First off Troy likes to go to bed at 8:00 P.M, i'm not opposed to an early night but come on, 8 o'clock really?  The first night he moved in I did my best to tip toe around the room so that I wouldn't wake him up, also I watched TV with headphones on, i'm a nice roommate.  He then proceeded to wake up 6 am on a Sunday morning I might add, and bang around the room, waking me up and being very unpolite. The next night, Troy managed to snore, whimper, and talk in his sleep, so even though he went to bed as the sun was just going down, he managed to ruin my night from 8-2am.
Troy has a long list of bad habits, and the fact that he is in his 40's makes me think that he is too old to want to change his ways.  Since I don't think that I will be getting a new roommate anytime soon, look forward to more posts about Troy and his bad habits.

I found Jesus on 17th Street

I spent the early part of my day looking for work by my new apartment.  While strolling down 17th street I saw a man wearing a Statue of Liberty Costume and waving a sign for "Liberty Taxes".  The man was looking very enthused for such a daunting task of waving a large sign in the air all day, he must be getting paid decent money for the labor.  I asked him "So, how much are they paying you to stand out here and wave that sign around all day?"  The man then looked at me strangely as if no one had ever taken the time to say hello, or ask him any questions.  He then replied with an answer that almost made my head spin, but renewed my faith that there are decent people in this world still "I work for free.  You see, I live at my local church and we're very poor and cannot pay our electricity bill.  The church has allowed me to stay for free, and I turn I work to help pay the bills".  I was astonished by his answer, and before I said good day to him I had to ask, "My name is Taylor, what is your name?" and he replied "My name you ask? My name is Jesus". Coincidence? Most likely, but still pretty cool.

Sugar Rush or Carb High?

Sleeping in used to be one of favorite things to do.  On an average night I would stay up until 4:00 AM watching pointless TV shows then usually sleep in until noon or later, but since the move I have been trying to wake up bright an early so that I can be more productive during the day.  This new schedule haws opened up a whole new world of foods for me...breakfast foods!  I have become quite partial to my early morning meals, one in particular the "S'more's Pop Tart".

When I'm not feasting on the sugary's pastry my second favorite breakfast meal is the sesame seed bagel, toasted with lots of cream cheese.  I know its unhealthy but instead of coffee I drink a cold Dr.Pepper.

These are just a couple of my favorite ways to eat my most important meal of the day, but i'm always looking for something new to try, so let me know what is your favorite breakfast meal?

Can't afford a car? What I do to get around town

So I haven't been lucky enough to buy a new car since I crashed my old truck, and that has made getting around town a little more complicated than just zipping down to the store in a car and being back in a few minutes.  Ive had to think outside the box.  For close trips like to the store or out to get a bite to eat I prefer riding my bike.  It's my mom's pink five speed that she bought from Walmart but it does the trick and i'm ok with my sexuality enough that I can shrug off any remarks ;) For long trips I like taking the bus, although it may take longer to get there, I usually spend the trip catching up on some reading or playing angry birds on my phone.

So my question is, what type of transportation do you use when a car just isn't available?

In The Beginning

One would think that growing up in a quiet suburban town would be quite easy, and i'm not going to lie I had a quite normal childhood.  I played little league, soccer and spent my summers down at the beach.  School seemed to come easy to me and like every small town kid I had big dreams of something bigger.  After graduating high school I had the choice of moving away for college or to continue living at my parents house and commuting to the local state university, I chose the latter. The downfall to not moving away was that I saw the same people every day.  I went to the same local hot spots every week and hit on the same local girls.  This all became quite a bore for a kid like me who wanted more.

This desire for something different eventually lead me down a dark path, and before I knew it was into a routine of various vice's and addictions, and by the time I was twenty three I had landed myself in drug and alcohol rehabilitation.  I moved back after my five week stay, which was more like a vacation than treatment to my parents house.  I tried my best to stay sober in the following months, but the same people I grew up with that had enabled me into getting myself into the trouble I had been trying to get away from came back into my life, and in turn all the substances that I had worked on staying away from were once again right back in my face.  After two years of an uphill battle I finally made the change of my life, and moved to a new town, far away from where I had grown up. So now I am all alone in a new city, starting a new life with people who don't know a thing about my past and the person I used to be.  This is my time for change.
