It's a little rough admitting to the blogging world that I moved back home after graduating from college. Yes, I have a degree and yes, I still don't know what to do with my life. And while there is a certain adjustment that comes with moving back home after living away for four years, there are also some perks that you just can't find anywhere else. And I'm not just talking about the free rent.
-Since there are still the younger kids around, I have an unlimited supply of Snack Pack pudding, Capri Sun, fruit snacks, and Kool Aid at my fingertips. It does not get much better than that.
-Going through my old things I have come across my past phases of life including my troll collection (I even found my old troll Christmas stocking which is kind of scary looking) and comic books from when I decided I wanted to read them but only bought them from the 10 cent box. For some reason these finds have brought immediate joy to my life.
-I have an excess amount of time for blogging. Notice the recent influx.
-While I have become the designated cab driver for the youngins, this also means I have been able to keep up to date with my rap music addiction; the downside is that I don't think anyone can look cool listening to Snoop Dogg in a Mini-Van.
-I am resurrecting old hobbies including knitting and scrapbooking! I am so crafty. Who knew?
-There is a certain emotion that resurfaces every time I run into someone from my past here at home. Usually awkward conversation ensues...this is just something you can't find anywhere else.
-My Grandparents live only a short distance away. They used to be kinda scary to visit, but now they're at the funny stage of old-ness.
-There is a washer/dryer that I can use anytime...for free!
(The biggest downside to living at home: All these stupid pets my family has acquired. The most recent additions (joining our two annoying dogs) are two kittens that can look cute, but are probably more obnoxious than the dogs. I may not have a heart, but I just can't stand these animals. They do not benefit my life. I want them gone.)
