April showers bring may flowers…like the ship?
Wee! So, Trip is all set now. Leaving pittsburgh may 16th headed for a quick stop in new york then over to rome. Then, first class to london on wednesday may 23rd. Back to rome on the 25th, then back to the states on saturday, the 26th. Work is paying for my room & board while in london and i’ll get to meet everyone there in London. Good times! I ended up redeeming my credit card points to help with the flight to london, so that was pretty cool too. Hopefully the whole trip will go on without problems. So many of us going, all never having been there, depending on keren, trying to organize events and such. I’ll admit, i’m a little worried.
Things with Rachel continue to go well. Hung out with her family at her cousin’s wedding on saturday. The reception was at the Carnegie museum inside the hall of architecture. really classy! lots of statues and columns and stuff around the room. Acoustics left something to be desired, but still a cool event. We do a lot of social activities, like with other people, but we don’t do too much just the two of us. It has it’s a good thing and a bad thing, but i’ve told her that i want to have some date nights too. Relationship builders for the win!
lots of city news going on. Pittsburgh was rated most livable city. In response to Pittsburgh having the 2nd highest population drop (1st was post-Katrina New Orleans) Mayor Luke Ravenstaul (27 years old) announced the Propel Pittsburgh Commission, a group of 37 people, from ages 20-34, who will meet and talk about what they wantlikedislike in the city. I threw in my application. Hopefully I’ll hear something back soon! I would really like to get more involved in the city, and the Hill District. In unrelated city news, Pittsburgh eats more ho-hos than any other city.
Roommates are going well. Alex is cool. I have someone coming in for may 5th-25th, and then from june 1st – august 6th. Deirdre will probably move in shortly after that and then we’ll see where we can go. I’ll admit, i’ve had good luck with finding people and such on craigslist. hopefully i’ll be continued to be blessed there.
no more word on the merger yet. 2 summer classes, starting while i’ll be in london…oh well. Dallas is coming back from Vegas, and flights were too expensive to go down to see him a second time. bummer. new songs recorded and posted. estate is finally closed! lots of stuff to do with figuring out how to pay for it now though. We gotta start cutting the grass too, and the tractor is broken. Bleh. I’m a city boy, not a farmer!2,706 views
