“We may as well just stop planning out lives because it’s not working” Mel said this with laughter in response to my phone call telling her that I was flying out to Detroit the following evening. All summer me and Mel have gotten together on several occasions to help each other “plan our lives” (like we literally call each other up for this). Anyway, I had the fabulous plan of working and living in San Francisco for 5 months, in fact I was supposed to be there right now but instead am in a hotel room in Detroit, MI. Because things with my pending contract at UCSF were not going well due to my agency, I felt in my gut that this was not the best move to make. It was kind of a big fiasco but the following day, I received a phone call from another agency with an opportunity to come to Detroit because of the enterovirus crisis and make a nice amount of money in a short 2 weeks. Sweet! There was no hesitation on my part and the very next day I was on a plane to MI for the first time. I literally unpacked my San Francisco suitcase and then repacked for MI. That was 6 days ago. I haven’t seen much of Detroit yet due to my work schedule, but you know I will get out and be the tourist that I am. I’m staying downtown and there’s a ton of stuff around me. I wrote in my journal a few weeks ago that the theme of this fall would be making money and having fun. Ballin out or whatever, lol. No but seriously, the seasons are changing and my life has really reflected that this year. I’ll have to blog about that some other time. It’s 4:00 a.m., did I mention I’ve been on night shift all week? Yeah…I should probably call it a night so I can get out and about tomorrow. Pics coming soon.
