Success, Failure...some of my greatest failures have been a springboard to my greatest successes...the terms are truly fluid.

July 22, 2010 Santa Cruz

So I live in Santa Cruz now and I have to admit that the challenges with living somewhere new are deeply softened by the familiarity of life here...I know the restaurants I like already, the streets and sub neighborhoods of the city here and the culture of this downtown and college zones...

And my family is here...I am so happy without having had any successes yet...but it is worth pointing out that I already have had a couple of job interviews, and a chance at having my own income...not a bad feat when one considers that this is the first community that I can claim that...we will all remember this as the Depression in a few years hence....and it would be nice if I could find a job...

Woohooo!!

I am in my second term at Oregon State University and truly enjoy scholarly pursuits. As a Political Science major I have obsessed about the political climate everywhere over the past several months saturating myself in all the cable programs I could about it in general.

I have also still kept up my application with University of Oregon since I do prefer the Linguistics classes over my Political Science classes. Although I must admit I am delighted to be an intern for John Kitzhaber's campaign here for Oregon governor. He seems to be a genuine guy with a good plan to keep Oregon's economy going in the right direction.

I also am working on pulling together www.terripugh.com so I can put my hobbies into a nice arena. I have friends who are very skilled earring makers and also make beautiful necklaces as well and if it works out I might be able to pull together their works too.

Anyway things are rolling along and I have to admit to being really happy still...campaigns are coming to a head in the primaries today!! Go Kitzhaber!!
