"speaking of me..." krizt's Profile
Well, I grew up mostly in southern Illinois. I lived in West Frankfort until I was 12 or 13. My family and I went to Las Vegas for a couple months every summer and we finally decided to move out there.
I loved living in Vegas- living there is completely different than visiting. But I got homesick and we moved back to Illinois. Then... I got homesick and I moved back to Vegas-leaving my family in IL. Then- you guessed it! Homesick. I did that for about six years. I liked change. Then I fell in love with the drive from Vegas to LA. So there I was driving back and forth -about twice a week- until I decided to just stay.
LA is home to my heart. I worked on the Promenade in Santa Monica at an ice cream cart and I never wanted to go home. I was always there. I met a lot of great people and I got paid to star watch and enjoy the street performers. But I visited my family in Illinois for Thanksgiving and - that's right- I started packin'. One more move to Vegas- and back to Illinois- and 50,000 miles later- I decided to stay in southern Illinois. Every day I get the itch to leave either for travel or to move. I love meeting new people and seeing new things. I love driving. I once wanted to take a vacation- driving around the perimeter of the US- but no one else was up for it. One day I'll do it...
