I am really happy that I have the amount of camp people around me in my new venue. I really think they are what helps me cope with being away from everything I loved and was comfortable with. When I say loved and comfortable with I don't mean I'm a Momma's boy and can't stand not living with my parents because to be honest if I was still in the Greater Flint area I would be moved out with friends in an apartment. I mean, well yea being away from family, but also being away from most of my friends, the gym I used to work out at and the places I used to be able to go whenever I wanted. I admit being here was really hard at first, but what has always helped me since being here was being able to hang out with camp people whenever I wanted/needed to. I really hate to make their heads bigger than they already are, but I really don't know that I would be living in Ann Arbor still if it wasn't for them. I'm not a homebody in the least bit, but I am a person who hates leaving something he loves and that is exactly what I did, but camp people have helped me to love where I am now.
Today, I had a shitty day in class and was on my way to face what turned into a shitty day at work. When I was leaving class I was pulling away in my car and stopped when I looked in my rear view window and noticed Dunch randomly shouting "Oh-Eh" and doing the pumping dance that goes with it behind my car. That moment and that moment alone was the highlight of my day, a very shitty day. Another thing I really enjoy is playing Halo with them online. Since I don't get to see them as much as I did when I was unemployed, playing video games with them online on occasion has really helped me to keep in touch and not miss a beat in hanging out with them.
So, yes, I have admitted it, I enjoy the company of Kip, Gallagher, and Kessel and am glad they are here with me. Dump too. Also, this blog and being in this community have helped it as well. So thank you to every single member in the Artichoke community. This is going to be the end of my post seeing as how I have to get up for work in 3 hours. Goodnight.
