“The better sex.” That term never had more meaning then at this point in time. I don’t hate on men but women had (and continue to have) a clear power over feeble-minded men like me.

 

Kyle had introduced us to his uncle and his group of friends during the summer. His uncle Ritchie was one of the kindest and most pleasurable guys with which to hang around and his friends were just as amazing. Shawn, Kyle and the rest of us would go out to “pre-game” at their apartment before they would head out to the bars. I was always one to be surrounded by drinkers but never one myself. My parents both had issues with alcohol and thus, I was still deathly afraid of heredity addiction.

My job search continued. The need for a better occupation was not only fueled by an unspoken desire to fall heavily back into games but also to finally pay down these hospital bills. An easy choice considering the hours at both franchisees’ Subways were still not enough for either.

 

The newspaper again proved to be the opposite of help and I was ready to go back to a staffing specialty office until my neighbor friend, Dan, offered an alternative. Dan had been working security for Securitas permanently on the EMMC campus. Dan – never one to settle for unhappiness – had been perusing the EMMC system for other jobs and told me about a Medical Transport job at the hospital (located conveniently down the road). I was reluctant to work at the same hospital at which I was treated but knew that this might have been a viable option to earn enough money to pay off those same medical bills once and for all. In fact, to me, the idea of using their money to pay off their bills was deliciously devious.

One Year in Los Angeles

One year. It’s been one year since I moved out west. Okay, so truth be told, I moved into my first apartment on November 8th but I’d rather not be linked to that day for obvious reasons. No, November 6th was the first day I laid my head down in California.

I’d beaten the dead horse ad-nauseam in regards to my unhappiness living in Maine (and after… AND AFTER) but it was on this day last year that I finally began my new life propelled by positivity.

It appears that late October/ early November is a time of great change for me. Four years ago, I was shooting The Tale of the Three Brothers and simultaneously realizing that my marriage was over. Two years ago, I quit my longtime job at EMMC and began at Verizon. And last year, I moved across the country in pursuit of my future.

No, my life was consumed by something far more powerful: the desire to play video games. My gaming habits had diminished since the Gamecube had run its course and I found myself playing fewer video games. But as we all know, Kyle and I played so much Smash Bros. that my Hype Train began a-chuggin’.

*South Park again! That means NSFW! Stories of SPOOOKY GHOSTS inbound!

 

Christmas 2006 came and went. The three of us set up a Christmas tree and decided to have an impromptu photo session. Then we went “home” even though Bangor already felt like home. Keith left separately, Shawn and I together in my car. We all met up at Keith’s parents’ house to say hi then went onto our respective families.
