"Luck be a lady tonight..., luck be a lady tonight..., luck if you've ever been a lady to begin with, luck be a lady tonight..." -Frank Sinatra- (Luck Be A Lady)
Good evening everyone. Well, I've made a decision, and I'm sure that it's going to shock you... I've decided that I'm going to do everything possible to move back to the Mojave Desert when my current lease ends in Austin. That gives me 7 months to prepare, and hopefully things will work out better than they did the last time, when I moved back to Vegas for about 4 seconds... Okay, it was more like a month, but same difference, right?... I reached this decision late Thursday night, and since then, I've felt more peace of mind than I have for quite some time. This serenity is surely due to the fact that I have a plan (well, I need to develop a plan), a goal..., something to shoot for. These are some of the things that I miss about Las Vegas...
Again, this shouldn't come as a surprise to any of you, and the desert has never been far from my thoughts (if at all) since the infamous August break-in of 2012. It seems like it's always been a question of when was I going to take another crack at it. Even though I had wanted to return to Las Vegas for a substantial amount of time before the end of July in 2012, I had not done a lot of PREPARING for it. Although I left my job about a full month before I moved back out to the desert almost a year and a half ago, I ended up spending most of that month (which was much longer than I had anticipated) sorting through all of my possessions. This miscalculation of the time that it would take to sort my belongings down to what would fit into my vehicle for a single trip to Nevada didn't leave me with any time for frivolous things like job hunting or finding a place to live (which I convinced myself would be easier once I was in Las Vegas anyway..., after the fact of course)... ;) Given the fact that I didn't pick a SINGLE, SOLITARY Wild Card Game correctly straight up this weekend, this is obviously the time for me to make my move... :P Of course the thought that comforts me is that I've experienced so much in my lifetime that I'll just regroup and bounce back if things don't go as planned.
And there you have it, my new plan, which was my old plan... :) I hope that you had a great weekend and I'll see you again soon!
