Month: May 2009

i finally finished setting up my new computer. kaspersky mysteriously started working and i, not being one to question mysteries, immediately started transferring files. no (apparent) viruses so far! vista is fairly innocuous, except that dont seem to be able to download songs off of skreemr anymore. gta: san andreas works now and, not unexpectedly, i have become addicted. i…

i look back fondly on that one week over winter break where i was hyper-productive. this past week has been productive, but more like the definition of that word when it refers to a hearty cough. i finished a pair of books and beat deus ex: invisible war (above par game, below par length – so short). i guess i…

back home now. i’ve been relatively productive. monday i picked up approximately 8000 (6) applications at the mall. i also filed ones at a&f and hollister, where they automatically interview you. did that interview tuesday for hollister. totally dominated. i was with another kid and he was basically silent while i chatted/flirted with the manager. i felt bad for him…

we head back home early tomorrow morning. it’s not like the best thing, but i’m sort of excited about getting back to east lansing. i miss my peers, i guess, especially since portland is such a young town. young hipsters, mind you, but still – everyone’s my age. also, it’ll be nice to have more than one drink in a…

not having internet in the hotel room is rough. i have about twenty minutes to catch up every day. not long enough! ughhh. my typing fingers are tired already just from facebook. lame. oregon coast: pretty. wet. it rained the whole time we were out there, but we found a few nice little boutiquey towns. places like leland. on the…

oregon is pretty spectacular. unlike other mountainous places, where the train of thought follows “holy shit, that mountain is even bigger!” here, all you can think is, “jesus christ, mt. hood is huge!” seriously, since it grows straight up out of the ocean and is surrounded by much smaller mountains, it’s 11,000 feet of sheer, snowy bulk. it really dominates…

there are some mad fireworks exploding somewhere. i hope it’s just someone’s backyard in honor of graduating seniors. i went to tricia and lian’s graduation today – hung out with drew and tricia’s family. it was long and dull, as expected, but a good chance for mothers to get teary-eyed and for friends to whoop raucously as the graduates cross…

everyone’s leaving. i think it’s more depressing this year because i’m here to see everyone go and then will be here to see what it’s like when everyone is gone. sure, they’ll all come “visit,” but i still don’t like separation. plus, this the last separation before the big separation. graduating is going to suck. i watched the seniors walk…

i am so bad at updating this year. once a week is pretty sad for me. i guess not a lot of super-duper exciting things have happened though. britt’s 21st was fun because a. it was a tuesday night and b. i finally got to feel like a 21-year-old. i’m comfortable with it now. we started at peanut barrel (i…
