Okay. There was that time where I promised I would write one thing everyday for the entire month of June, but you should probably realise by now that I never follow through on that sort of thing.

I'm in Seattle. While packing, I left the things "I wouldn't need" at home, but I seem to have needed all of those things. Maybe I just need everything I own. The current plan is to try and con my parents into sending some stuff out to me, but they're about as reliable as I am, so I'm not holding my breath.

The weather here has been all but perfect, which is amusing because I hear Boston is sucking some serious ass. I have been cruising the city in many variations of transportation, including, but not limited to: a bicycle, and a 1975 Cadillac Eldorado, with a 500ci (five. hundred.) engine. Crikey.

James has a much better handle on the city in general, and has made some very cool people, so my little circle of friends is slowly expanding. The nightlife here is a bit different than Boston, but not entirely unpleasantly so. I'd like to try to find some industrial type night to see what the scene is like here, but I'm at the mercy of the people I'm with, more often than not, so I haven't had time. I have been to a few clubs which are very cool, most notably the Fenix Underground, which is just blocks from my house. The Fenix is most like Boston clubs than any other I've seen out here thus far.

Work is going well, and my only complaint has been my inability to adjust to any remotely normal sleep schedule, as we've been just staying up until we absolutely have to go to sleep, and then waking up three hours later because we're scheduled to be somewhere. It will probably taper off a bit once the initial "Holy shit, I'm in Seattle" thing wears off on James and myself. In the meantime, my concept of time is worse than usual. This isn't helped by the fact that it doesn't really get dark until about ten o'clock at night around here.

In general, I miss everyone in Boston, and I miss Boston itself, but I'm having fun and keeping busy while I'm here so I don't need to worry about being too homesick.

If anyone wants to send me anything from Boston, shoot me an e-mail and I'll give you my mailing address. I love presents (who doesn't?), and I've already received fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies, and photo-booth photos from Christine and Karla. All of my Seattle friends are jealous.

Who's coming to visit first?
