I’ve finally made the move downtown! It only took 7 or so weeks… Here’s the bottom of my hill. It’s a bit of a walk, but probably good for me. My new front door! Street View Me View It’s nice to be home.
Boston Week 1
The first week of work was pretty great. The job is fun, I like the people I work with, and it’s challenging. The only issue right now is the drive. It takes about a hour and a half to drive to work, and another hour and a half to drive home… But there are some nice views on the way into town This weekend I took a little stroll through town. This is the view when you cross the...
Road to Boston: Day 5
Day 5 started outside Cleveland OH. After finding the local Starbucks to get yet another mug we headed out on our final day on the road. It turns out that all of New York is a toll road which is just awesome. It’s about $18 to get all the way across the state. Sales tax is roughly 8%. Bullshit. After a few hours on the road we found out that Niagara Falls was pretty close by so we decided...
Road to Boston: Day 3 & 4
Day 3 started out pretty relaxed. We had some typical Hampton’s breakfast, then went to find a Starbucks so Mom could grab some Fargo mugs. The drive from Fargo to Minneapolis was pretty easy, about 4 hours. This will be our easiest day. I decided I should check out the snow, since I need to get used to it now… We arrived in Burnsville around 3pm (we started late) to meet the fam....
Road to Boston: Day 2
Boring Boring Boring. East Montana become bland as we came out of the mountains, then as entered North Dakota the snow and fog set in to make everything gray. Highlights of the Day: 6AM Wake up 12 hours of driving Mom almost hit a bald eagle with my car Mom telling me to turn up the wipers because she couldn’t see well Mom telling me to slow down Fargo… I hope to never drive...
Road to Boston: Day 1
Last night I packed all my belongings into the back of my Civic and headed over to Mom’s house for my last night in Oregon. Today we got up at 6am and headed out. Yes we, my Mother opted to pay for all my hotels on the way out to Boston, so she’s in on the trip too. We’ve got 5 awesome days of Interstate Highways and Mother-Son bonding. Our first stop today was in Spokane for...
I'm gonna miss this...
china part 1: go big or go home
lovealwayslindsay: The late night made for a late start today. The three of us went to an excellent English brunch and then across the street to the Lama Temple. Also called the Yonghe Temple, it is one of the largest and most important Tibetan Buddhist monasteries in the world. It also houses a Guiness World Record-holding Buddha, standing at almost 60 feet tall and carved from a single...
Weekend Movie Reviews
Men Who Stare at Goats: I’d give this movie a so-so. I enjoyed my time watching it, but I wouldn’t watch it again. I’m not a fan of narration in movies, and this has plenty of it. It’s film. Use the film as a medium to show us how the character feels. Don’t just read some dialog that tells us he’s not happy. Other than that I thought it was pretty enjoyable. I’m a big fan of movies that involve...
