Moving Out [May. 19th, 2004|09:50 pm]

As many of you know, I'm moving to Seattle for the summer. My plane leaves the 28th of May. I'm beginning to worry a little about the move out there, because I've come to the realization that I don't know nearly as much about my travel plans as I ought to.

Anyone ever had that realization that you're horribly underprepared for something and it's just going to all go to hell?

Anyway. Any of you who know the Seattle area, I'd appreciate any suggestions/advice you have for living in the city - sights to see, places to hang out, etc. I'm going to be living at 4th and Aurora, downtown (roughly)...

Shop at Pike's Place Market!!! It's LOVELY and they have just about everything. They even have a GREAT comic book store that is VERY cool but it's downstairs. They have maps everywhere, so you'll be able to find it. The market is cheaper than stores usually. There are health food stores everywhere too! There's a great art gallery and museum and everything. I grew up there, but moved away and I miss it a lot.

Hey hon, you have Raif, Pi, Vermilion all out there in Bothell, right outside of Seattle. I'm there every few months, and Bemlet isn't too far away either. So you do have people there =)

Thanks... I'll definitely have to meet up with all of you sometime. I've got three months there, after all...

..."Bot-hell"? No wonder the Pibot is always so distressed-sounding.

Nah, the Pi Bot just needs to get laid.

Grew up back in Western Washington...miss it like mad. I figure that within the next year I'll be back there permanently =)

Well I know nothing about Seattle, and I won't be anywhere near there, but you're probably not as underprepared as you think. And because you are super awesome and nice and charming and cute and friendly, you will meet tons of new people when you get there that can show you all the cool hangouts Seattle has 'n stuff. You'll be fine. Don't worry.
