I'm ready for a redesign and a fresh outlook on life.
I've been putting things away in my new place and walking around stark naked quite a bit. Life is good in your own space.
With Knaw'lej and Nakachi living right downstairs, we spend a lot of time having communal meals, watching movies and enjoying Knaw'lej's cooking. Oh, you ain't know? Baby can throw down, okay? Last night was spicy vegan spaghetti, cheap Mexican beer and homemade sangria. I slept good last night.
This weekend will be work, work, work, but it's all worth it at the end of the pay period, right?
School is, well, school. I got a scholarship, which was awesome, and it helped out a great deal with the tuition. I don't actually have to physically sit in any classroom, and the only time I really need to be on campus is to use the darkroom.
Surprisingly, for someone in her third week of a photography class, I haven't snapped one picture yet. My camera is sitting idly, with batteries in desperate need of a change.
It's different living right near the university. Everything is walking distance from my house, including the grocery store. I live on a major bus line, one that runs every ten minutes and goes to both of the city's transit stations. Einstein Bagel, Starbucks, Coffee Bean and Tea leaf, Chipotle, McDonald's, 7-Eleven, Wendy's, Carl's Junior and the rowdiest college bar ever are all in my backyard practically.
Last night while Knaw'lej was cooking, we sat outside on the stoop drinking Sol and watching the dudes next door slap box with each other. Our entire community is made up of college students, faculty and the people that populate Maryland Parkway.
All of this, of course, distracts me from the Internet, so my website has been neglected, I have emails dating back to the beginning of August to answer and socially, a lot of people have been feeling ignored both on and offline. It's all good.
I'm still here.
