I am not entirely sure why but I have been walking around saying the word rawr. I wake up in the morning and I say rawr. I greet my cats by saying rawr. I go into the spare room to either play guitar or hop on xbox to watch netflix or something and I say rawr. I just randomly sit here and say rawr. I go in the bathroom and say rawr. I look in the mirror and say rawr. I greet people online by saying rawr. I don't know what this obsession is with saying the word rawr. There is no apparent reason why I keep saying it. It is just one of those random Nick things I suppose.
So I may as well start with the big news. I saved 15% by switching to Geico. Ok not really. I got a job. It was the one I talked about in my last blog before my zombie story. Face to face interview went fine. They did a background check and that went fine. Thank God they didn't find out about the face eating incident that happened while I was in Florida. Oh wait, that wasn't me. I officially start on Wednesday. For the moment this is only a part time job. That is ok. I needed to just get something. I will be working in mainly frozen and dairy. That is exactly what I wanted.
It has been a rather long time since I worked. To be exact it has been almost 7 years. I am not going to sit here and talk about why it has been so long as I don't really want to dwell on it and drag other crap up. I am just really excited to get back out there in the working world. Plus it will be nice to meet new people and possibly make some new friends. Who knows maybe I will meet my future wife working there! Yeah ok I totally am not even thinking about that at the moment.
In the past few months I have been saying in my blogs how things are going to change for me and how I may surprise people. People have a hard time taking me seriously. I totally get why. It took me a very long time to be properly motivated and start to move ahead with a lot of things I wanted to do. I knew I was starting to head into the right direction and now with me getting this job it only confirms what I have been saying. I am not done though. I still have a list of things on the agenda. Getting a job was one of the main things and now I will continue to go through my list and get stuff accomplished. At this point the words fail or failure do not exist. I had a quote a few months back, a new way of living so to speak. Replace I can not do this with I will not fail. I keep the paper that I wrote that down on my computer desk in my room so I can see everytime I am at the computer.
Also written on that piece of paper is someone saying "Nick will never change". No Nick will not change specifically for people but Nick will change for himself and I have changed. I have changed on my terms and for myself not for anybody else and not because someone told me that I had to. To the specific person who said I was never going to change I want to say two things. Thank you. You saying I would never change was motivation enough to not only proof you wrong but maybe in a way to destroy any doubts that I may of had about my ability to change things around in my life. I know now for sure that I can change to better my own life. Secondly I just want to say...kiss my ass. I don't need to explain that one any further.
For a long time I was heading on a road to nowhere. Now I am on a different road. I am happy and I am excited about where it may head next. The journey will be the fun part. I know life is not perfect but I don't expect it to be perfect. I expect life to be as good as what you put into it. The more I put into it the better it has become.
