Irving Heights Apartments–1988 to 1995
This entry is a crossover from my life in the ’80s to my life in the ’90s.
I moved to this apartment house (Irving Heights Apartments) in 1988 or 1989 (I think). I lived here for about seven years. During my stay here, I worked for the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control as a technical specialist. I fixed computers and helped design the POS system.
Being the assistant manager of the apartment building, I worked part-time painting apartments and getting them ready for new occupants. I moved out in 1996 to go to California.
Laguna Niguel California 1995 to 1996
From my studio in Sugarhouse, I moved to California. My first move out-of-state. An adventure to be sure. After quitting my job with the State of Utah, I packed my bags and moved to California. (Not my wisest choice). My friends Rick Burke and Larry Blunk let me stay with them for a few weeks while I looked for a place to live. The apartment was in Laguna Niguel on El Pilar (I don’t remember the number). I had a difficult time finding work but eventually got a job at a video store, then a liquor store.
Saint George Utah 1997 to 1998
From California, I moved to Saint George, Utah. I stayed with my brother Greg and his wife Nancy for about a year. The house was full, Tami and Josh were living there too. I had never lived with so many people before.
While I lived with Greg, I got my job at Anderson Lumber. I started saving money so I could get my apartment. I moved into the Riverside Apartments after staying with Greg. Closing my life in the ’90s.
