I made the break about one month ago. A little bit over a month actually. The Ex and I had arrangements that he would take 6 months to become a decent human being (job, car, not to fuck any random women, stay off drugs, pay child support etc etc) and on our six month date he has not done any of those. I decided then and there that I was not going to sit around and wait for him to get his thumb out of his ass. About two weeks later is when I had a huge blow up with my father and I wanted to strangle him, quit my job and never come back. I had been saving for a while now, putting change away and dollar bills to my Texas Fund when I realized that … I had nothing holding me back in California. I made the call to Becky, put the move in motion and… here I am.
I left California for many reasons. One, the jobs totally suck ass, the cost of living is so expensive and I can barely stand to be out there with all the bad memories, fake friends and bull shit that is out there. I know bull shit is everywhere, but at least out here, its fresh. And new. I also left because my father was driving me up the wall and so was my ex. His suspicions were driving me insane!!! Always thinking I was doing something behind his back. I like to keep my life stress free. And he was creating so much god damned stress. So the simplest thing to do is… leave.
I packed up my car, drove out here, and am staying with Becky, looking for a job, going on quite a few interviews and I LOVE it out here. Its by far the best decision I have ever made. I am finally free of all the bullshit in California. People siding with Shannon because she is a stupid drug addict and everyone protects her, sick of the Ex fucking around constantly all the while looking into my eyes saying he will do anything. Yeah fucking right.
I have washed my hands of California and all the stupid people in it (minus the people I like). I have created a new facebook and going to only look forward. I have the world in the palm of my hands and I am so excited of what it might bring.
