Well, it seems like everything is coming together. I have a place to live in Portland! As of March 1st, my official address is:
7924 SE 17th Ave
Portland, OR 97202
I'll still be in LA at the beginning of the month, and then in NYC after March 5th, but still! I have a place to live! With a dishwasher! Life is amazing!
I also have two great new housemates: one is starting school with me and the other is applying to naturopathic school. Here's a picture of the house:
The technology of doing this all online astounds me (and even thinking that makes me feel like a grandma).
But anyway: I've got my classes picked out and a place to live and cool people to live with. I still need to find a car and a job.
Oh! And for those of you who followed the shortbutsweet puppy saga a few months ago, now we're getting a puppy for real. He's only two weeks old now, and will be ready to go to his new home in April. Here he is:
Please suggest names. Please.
In Hawaii news, still workin', still beachin'. I put tanning oil on my skin the other day and fell asleep at the beach. I woke up to my first burn here, which is localized on my lower abdomen and upper thighs. Which basically means that everytime I take my pants on or off, it kills me.
Also: Raquel and Soren are in town! I took them on a wild goose chase yesterday, and we tried to go to the beach but the wind was so insane that they were shutting the beaches down. So instead we went to a few different places to poach some fruit, which is one of my favorite things to do here. We got: coconuts, papayas, and star fruit. There were lots more papayas and bananas that we couldn't get to, and the guavas weren't ripe.
I love it here. Leaving two weeks from today.
