Beginning of May, I packed up my belongings and left my old pad down off of Division Street. While it was a nice change of being schizophrenically couch surfing from month to month since I arrived back in town following last year's escapade to Europe (still need to post those pictures!), the dark, dank, mouse-infested leaking basement was hardly passable as 'inhabitable.' Still a bit of a sore spot for myself...
However, the new spot I have here on 28th in Southeast, right off of Stark, is pretty nice. It has all the accouterments of home: 3 diverse and interesting roommates, cheap rent, a functioning kitchen, and we keep it pretty clean. Oh, and did I mention that I do not live in a basement anymore? Thank god I don't have to wear a coat and 3 pairs of underwear when I go to sleep!
Flying high with the birds, my attic view gives me some respite from the city... if I squint enough, the only thing I can see are leaves and clouds; not too bad considering how much traffic there is outside.
Finishing up Spring Term at PSU was a real bitch. Let's just say that 'stressful' earned another notch on its belt when Clive's history class showed its ugly head when the rest of my life hit the shitter and then the fan. But then, running out of money while you have taken on a full load at school and being forced to take a couple weeks out of your studies to look for a job - and move - will do that to you. Oh well, I look forward to taking Clive next year under better circumstances... especially while not being poor.
Which leads me to my current quandry: broke, bored, and broke again. A wonderful combination... so its time to be looking for a nice internship downtown and finally ditch the shitty tech support job. Even though it is the easiest work I have ever done.
