It was incredibly hard packing up my car to drive out here to Cleveland - half the problem being that Matt had stayed over the night before. Dressed in his nearly-new blazer, he spent most of the morning dragging ass because he did not want me to leave town. You throw Matt, my tired second-guessing brain into a blender... and the piles of my life sitting in the livingroom - and it... well.... actually it all sounds a little morbid to me now....
My head kept tap-dancing to Austin, "Go to Austin *clickity click*Austin."
My heart kept telling me to give Cleveland a chance.... even, if only a small one...
While Cleveland itself is not much to look at.... the city is not nearly as bad as I expected it to be. Pat works for a local concert venue so there is always live music and good times to be found.... There is a fancy place up the road that does a dollar burger night, a really delicious hooka bar, and a cinema that serves beer and shows foreign films all at the same time - whoo! Because of this fact, I decided it was in my best interest to join a gym (yay!). I love the gym - so many sexy scantily clad men and women, getting all sweaty, and worked-up... ha
Our apartment consists of Patrick, his friend Geoff from college, Geoff's friend Laura, and myself .... oh, and a very mutty dog named Jake - who everyone thought was male but actually turned out to be female... regardless of the mix up, Jake decided to keep her name anyways.
Still looking for a bartending job - once I have one - I shall shout it from the top of mountains for all to know - Stop emailing me about it. It will happen when it does.
Oh I almost forgot to mention that The Decemberists were phenomenally dashing last week.... wish you had been there. There was this crazy Asian guy that was spitting gum and smoking cigarettes, and there was this brave little girl who stood up to him .. oooh and I got to touch Colin's arm when he nearly collapsed on lady's head in front of me. Ha, Decemberists - oh how I love.
Photos from NYC with Kimberly Marvel - She is coming to visit me in Cleveland in a few weeks.... whoot!
