Ep 317: Twister


“That’s not progress, that’s a lie.”

All good things must come to an end. I’ve been giving this whole moving thing quite a bit of thought. Honestly, I can’t see myself having to start all over again, when I’m doing ok right here. I shouldn’t be selfish though, I should be happy that Danni is going to be able to live where she wants to live. I was angry at first, a tidal wave of abandonment issues washing over me, angry that she would just drop everything and follow her parents back to Florida. Angry because I feel like she is leaving me and the show without a second thought. But like I said, that was me being selfish, and for the most part, I know that I should be happy for her. Life tends to get lived in cycles, or chapters. Every now and then you get to a point in life, where the chapter is finished, and you need to start the next one. We had a great time together, and we will always have those memories, but it seems that it’s time to move on. Of course, I don’t want to spend the rest of my life here in Kalispell Montana, but I’m not quite ready yet to pack it all up and leave. If you listen to the show, you’ll know that the job I have now is the longest I’ve ever kept a job for, and it’s one of those things that only get offered to you once or twice a lifetime. Most people work jobs that don’t even know their name, just another paper pushing number in a computer server somewhere. I’m lucky to have a job that I actually somewhat enjoy doing. In my head, it seems silly to have to start all over again. I would do almost anything for Danni, but packing up everything and moving to follow her parents across the country just isn’t one of those things. It would be different if they were moving somewhere else, but I’ve lived in Florida, and it’s not the climate or locale that I want to call home. Whenever things change, you should always try and make the new better than the old. For instance, when you break up with your girlfriend, you should always try to trade up. Whenever you get a new car, you should always try to pick something a little better than what you were previously driving. I think about it the same way with where you live. If you are going to go through all the trouble of packing up your entire life, to go settle down somewhere new, the new place should be better than the place you were living. If not, then what’s the point? Anyways, I apologize to Danni for being a dick, I’m just upset that I am going to have to find a new girlfriend, and another co host. The two things I hoped to never have to do again. This town doens’t have the best track record for finding a girl that doesn’t have or want to have any children. I just need to make the best out of the time I have left with her, say a prayer to whom it may concern that her parents house doesn’t sell, and look forward to the next chapter in my life.
