There are few things in life more relaxing to me than the infinite number of white specks of snow stretching up, seemingly an infinite distance, to the sky. I can sit here at my desk and stare out the window for hours at a time watching all the white flakes fall, conjuring up strange ideas of my life and the world around me. Recently, actually only three days ago, I moved to Boston from Seattle. I finally got my Internet connection set up here at home and I was thinking of something to post and I looked out the window only to find it was snowing. It’s not as if I have never seen snow before but it was not common in Seattle and almost completely absent in California, so I get very excited.
My first night in Boston I went to a birthday party for Ian and his girlfriend who are my friend Ben’s friends. We went to the Cambridge Common and I proceeded to get a little too drunk because I didn’t know anyone there and I felt I needed to be social in order to make some new friends. Needless to say, I don’t really remember anyone’s name anymore. Oh well. The next day I just relaxed and watched comedy shows on HBO in order to get ready for the next night when I would get to see my friend Heather. That night we went to some bar/restaurant to get dinner and a few drinks. Then we went and met up with Ben’s girlfriend at another bar. Before even going out I took several shots of whiskey and then once out I had a few more drinks. It was a lot of fun. There weren’t too many people for me to have to meet so I got a chance to hang out and talk to Heather for a while, which was nice. I am now in my room about to get ready for a Halloween party tonight where I will be wearing a Girls Gone Wild: Cameraman shirt. I’ll also bring my digital camera so hopefully I will have some interesting photos to post tomorrow. If anyone has any suggestions for bars or places to visit in the Boston area then I would much appreciate hearing about it.
