Two weeks down of being in the north and I think I am adjusting ok. I do get a little depression from time to time, whether it is because I miss my family or miss Florida, but it comes and goes and I remember why I am here. We have been house sitting and today we get to move out and try living in a camper because it is very hard to find a place that is willing to rent an apartment for 2 months and is under $1000 per month. It will be something completely different from what I’m use to and I won’t lie, I am a little nervous. Also it is very tough finding a job up here, there are a lot of them but not in any field that I know anything about. That’s probably why I also get depressed. I have worked since I was 13 and I hate not making money and sitting around.

However I did find a cure for my depression, well MR. GC helped find it with me. Hiking! Well it wasn’t so much the hiking that I liked, the climbing rocks part. We don’t have that in Florida, we have flat, marshy, swamp land where everything wants to kill you. This was hills, and trees, and rivers, and the only thing you had to worry about getting you are bears. It was in the 60’s and sunny and I didn’t need sunscreen. It was the first time that week that I didn’t have that little voice in my head saying, “Cry!” We did get a little off trail but it showed that we could help and support each other. I mean we will be doing a lot of this in New Zealand so might as well find out if we work well together as a team.

After hiking, he also took me to a hot spring, which if you can, go try one. It was amazing to relax in hot water after a long days hike. After the hot springs I had an awesome burger and we called it a night. It was something I needed and didn’t even know. I am very happy that I have some one that works well with me, not that we are perfect, but we are there for each other.

Ok so enough of the boring word stuff here are some photos from that day at Angels Rock.
