The Apartment

As I suspected, we were approved without issue and will be moving in on Monday! As in two days! Both rooms are about the same size. Room A is slight smaller, has less closet space, but has two windows. Room B is slightly bigger, has more closet space, but only one window. Jeff and I flipped for rooms, and I got room A, leaving Room B to Jeff.

As I was leaving, I took a quick glance at the mailboxes to find where our would be. I recognized one of the names: “Jalbert/Skilling.” As it turns out, one of my friends from high school, Celeste, lives in the apartment right above us. How amazing? Unfortunately, they’ll be moving out at the end of the month, so our co-tenancy will be short lived.

Anyway, I’ll probably start moving in Monday after work. Jeff will start moving in Tuesday morning. I’m sure we’ll have some sort of housewarming party in the near future.

Finished First Season of The West Wing

Everything I’ve been told, by Celeste Jalbert, Jeff Staples, Darren Justus, and anyone else. The West Wing is really a superb show that everyone needs to watch, regardless of your political views. I just finished season one and can’t wait to start season two.

I was watching an episode a view days back and Quinn McGinnis comes over and watches for a few minutes states that he can’t believe he heard something intelligent on TV.

Ubiquitous paradigm shift; AKA: Prom

Ubiquitous paradigm shift is defined as a “constantly encountered” shift in “an outstandingly clear or typical example or archetype.” In other words, I had to change my expectations of Prom. This in fact, actually ended up benefiting me. But to completely understand the story, one must begin at the beginning.

I decide that I was going to prom several months ago. The decision stemmed from the fact that A) I had never been to a school dance before; and B) 5 years down the road, prom would have been the think that I would have liked to have gone too. I won’t retell the effort it took to actually find a date to prom. However, I will say that prom was journey, not a destination. For the record, my dates name was Lia DiBiase. We both go to Seattle Academy. There is no romantic interest. We had dinner with Celeste, Alex, Paige, Thomas, Natalie, and Joey (who attends O’Dea) at Thai Kitchen on Queen Anne. Then we proceeded to the Lake Union Cafe for the actually prom event. I would say that over half the population was drunk before they even arrived. There were no alcoholic beverages on the premise…at least that I was aware of, but I do know of several parties that occurred afterwards where such beverages might have been present. I wouldn’t know for sure as dropped my date off at a quarter to one and returned home to work on the Mexico Slide show.

Prom Picture…more to come soon!
