"...all of those early friends were quickened within it, and in some strange way they accompanied me through all of my new experiences."
The new Tori CD is great, and I was so excited this morning when I was reading The Stranger and saw that she would be in town, right by where I work, on April 22nd. But alas, tickets have already sold out even though they have only been on sale for 3 hours. Oh well. I'll keep checking back, but its not the end of the world.
Work is going good. Yesterday was the first day where I actually felt like I knew what I was doing, which was nice. I got off at 6:30 PM, and usually I would've gone right home because I try not to be out on my own after dark. But the streets downtown are SO packed with people on Friday nights that I decided an hour or two wouldn't kill me. I went to one of the many Starbucks and ordered a Caramel Apple Cider and finished my book, and I was just so happy. The city is so pretty at night. After I finished my book I wandered around and went in a bunch of stores, then took the bus home where I immediatly fell asleep. It was a very enjoyable night. I felt like Carrie on the episode of Sex in the City where she says she is dating the city.
Today I have the day off and I was going to go try to find the Craft Store in the Southcenter area, but I think I might go take the bus to a big church that I remember seeing. I think I've overcome my fear of playing my piano in my apartment, but it would be kind of nice to play a different piano.
I'm becoming addicted to reading. I've always loved reading, but in college you have so much reading that you are assigned to do that you never get to read just for fun. I've been making up for lost time in a big way. Today I am going to start "Snow Falling on Cedars." My mommy loaned it to me a million years ago and I still haven't read it.
That's the great thing about living in a city where there is literally a Starbucks on every block. Lots of places to read!
