I spent the weekend working the horse show at Oak Ridge, which is a really big deal if you have not been there before. Of course parking is a huge problem, since this is a little town and there are big crowds at this place every year. At any rate my job is to ferry people from this big field that was being used for parking to the show grounds, a few of them decked out in equestrian competition clothing. They have all sorts of events and I got to see a bit of it. Obviously after a certain point the traffic is not really flowing too much. At any rate I was sitting there with my cell phone in my hand waiting for people to show up and ask for a ride back, but they did not start to leave for some time. In the mean time I got to watch the pretty girls and the other sights.
I need to save up as much money as I can before I go back to Chapel Hill. Like most college students I have been working a menial job, but it pays very much like a menial job and I need money to keep myself fed and sheltered. The last semester things went pretty badly, I had been sharing an apartment with another guy for most of a year. He was always a bit strange, but not so much that it had any effect on me. At some point he started to behave really bizarrely, which honestly only effected me because he stopped coming up with his share of the rent and utilities. It is not so hard to figure out that he had come off his medications now, because when he vanished the empty bottles were left behind. It really put me in a hole.
