Ask for directions...

Living in a new area means a lot of things, one big thing that is often overlooked is directions.  I have already been lost in this city several times. Everything ends up looking famaliar and some of the streets go on forever. Cities that are close to the beach are weird. Basically, they're empty during the night cause all the night life is at the beach. One thing thats really different and caught me off gaurd was a lack of street lights. Instead of your standard green, yellow, red lights, Jax city just has flashing yellow lights that you drive right through.. this concept is pretty hard to grasp when one is not sober...
It's nice though, having a huge city to yourself. I ran around on Tuesday night with Misfit guy, his friends, and my sister. We ended up at this punk show in the middle of fuck nowhere. My sister looked so bright and shiny next to the dark atmosphere of the venue.  It was pretty bad-ass though.  Life just seems different here, when I was in Norman, I felt trapped in this bubble. Now, it seems my option are limitless.


Sister update: Currently, my sister has plans to leave next week via bus. I'm not sure how safe it will be but, its the cheapest way to get back, and she wants to get back as soon as possible. I love her to death, and want her to be happy and going back is what she wants. I think theres some comfort in the familiarity and thats really hard to let go off. It takes time to be able to let things go. Some, people will never be able to let go and explore...
