Entry #7, or "Trek to the East."

Hey all,

I recently moved from the deserts of Arizona to the shores of Maryland in an attempt to find something like work, if not actual work, and get my life back in order. Currently staying with family until I can: 1) Find a job that pays a little better than min wage, and 2) Find an apt I can afford. and 3) continue school.  I may have to put off school for a semester to establish residency  so I don't pay the ridiculous out of state tuition the local colleges here have  ($300+ per credit? WTH?).

Entry #6 or "What should I jot down?"

Ever since I bought this tablet, I've been investigating it's usefulness. As a PDF viewer, the Nexus 7 is very good. It also works as web browser, media player, and a passable gaming device; I bought it to see how well it could stand-in for my PC.

I'm currently writing this on my tablet with the on-screen, something I'm not particularly a fan of it. But I'm tolerating it to get my thoughts down.

Hmm... Not very organized, ought to work on that.

Still dabbling at writing; it's tough, tougher than most things I've attempted in my 37 years. People tell me I'm a good writer and my grades for my papers reflect that, but I don't take to it. Heh, maybe I'm hobbit in spirit; I can be capable of good, if not great, writings, but I don't take to it readily.

Mur Lafferty, of the "I Should Be Writing" podcast, says that it is hard, but the act of writing anything is helpful. So here I am, pounding away as it were on the screen.

Catch y'all later,
