YAYAYAYAYAYAY!!!!! I'm coming back!

Well, hey, what can I say? I'm a little excited.... After much deliberation, I have decided to move back to Austin. Many reasons for this, not the least of which is the pathetic course offerings at my school up here in chicago. ACC's degree programs seem to have a lot more to offer me, and besides the campuses are much nicer. But really, being separated from all my friends for so long has taken a toll on my emotional state, and I decided that it's high time I came back. My recent visit to Austin confirmed that, not only have people not forgotten about me, but that I have a lot of good friends who really love me and would love to have me back.. Like Aaron told me, "Friends need each other."

It was a really tough decision, especially considering that I have a girlfriend up here. But, even she seems to understand why I want to go back (perhaps a testament to my diplomatic skills - i should be a politican). Needless to say, I have been thinking about Austin ever since I moved.. Truth be told, Austin has been in my heart since I first visited almost 8 years ago. Then there's the fact that I basically abandoned my whole life in Texas, largely due to my own personal issues that I could not deal with by myself at the time. I think it's time to pick up where I left off, so to speak.. I have some minor concerns, but they were ultimately not enough to outweigh the up-sides of coming back.. But I will admit, it might be hard for me to really concentrate on school once I get back to everything.. So I hope everyone will understand if I am kinda scarce while I get my school routine sorted out. I will probably be taking 15-17 hours of school, which is no small committment. It's gonna be a lot of work and it's probably gonna kick my ass, but I think it will be worth it. By this time next year, I should be finished with my first college degree, and that will be a definite cause for celebration.

Anyway, I am excited, so I just wanted to share this with anyone out there who might be interested. Since I have less than a month before school starts, I need to get my ass in gear and start planning. I plan to land in Austin next weekend (weekend of august 7-8).

What I need is to find a place to live ASAP! So, if anyone in Austin could help me out by finding any potential places to live, I would really appreciate that. I am looking for a garage apartment or decent sized 1br, central-north part of town. Anywhere north of downtown would be fine. I am on a budget so a cheap (read: shitty) place will work. If anyone has any leads, please let me know. Must be cat-friendly of course.

Well that's it for now. Hope everyone is doing good, I miss all of you and will see you soon!
