I was waiting to write another post on here until I got internet at the new casa, but some stolen wireless will do for now.

A lot’s changed in the last few days – I no longer work at the Evergreen or live in Pullman.

The house… ah, the house. Well, it’s starting to feel like home already if that means anything. I’m sure that has more to do with who I live with than anything, but it’s home nonetheless. It’s kind of hard to believe that a week ago I was still wondering what the hell I was going to do after graduation.

The job’s going well, almost to my surprise. It’s definitely something new, which I like. Today I got to talk to a guy that just signed a three-year contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers, so that was cool.

I’m adjusting pretty well to living in Moses. Peter pointed out yesterday that it’s probably a good thing we didn’t decide to live in Ephrata. As he phrased it, I’m used to the “hustle and bustle” of Pullman, and in Ephrata I’d feel like the world came to a halt. Probably true. Moses isn’t completely dead, anyway. For example, tonight was the second night in a row I saw the police in action on my way home from work…

I’m pretty much counting down the days until I can bring Velvet home with me. Here’s a cute adorable picture of her as a pup, because that’s how I see her in my head.



… but my Monday rocked in general.

  1. I got a haircut. I wasn’t too sure about it at first – in fact, I cried when I got home when I realized how short it really is – but it’s growing on me (no pun intended).
  2. I was successful in finding the heels I wanted at Ross when Abbey and I went to Moscow. I actually first saw them over the weekend, when Luci was here, but decided not to get them… not really sure why. But I have them now and that’s all that really matters!
  3. Abbey and I ate at Wingers. Enough said.
  4. I got a phone call from and editor at a newspaper and we discussed some temporary employment/internship opportunities this summer that could possibly turn into full-time employment. More details later.
  5. I didn’t have to work before going to see Dierks and Bucky.
  6. Dierks and Bucky.
  7. Tuesday: Peter talked with our landlord and, after some frustration on Peter’s side and confusion on all sides, it’s looking like he’ll get the keys to the place today.


I’m gonna have to say that Dierks Bentley definitely put on a better show this time around in Pullman than in 2005 (though, of course, I had an amazing time at the first show). Despite annoying girls in front of us who didn’t pay for front row tickets, Abbey and I had a great time in the front row. Had we known more of Bucky Covington’s songs, we probably would have enjoyed his show more, but he did good as well. Not much else to say except that Dierks is sexy as hell and thank god Abbey had her camera there to take pictures of his ass for me.

This picture is one we had the girls behind us take while Dierks and his band were doing their little bluegrass bit, which turned out pretty cool. Neither Abbey or I really liked the picture at first but I had the bright idea to make it black and white and it turned out to be a good one. It was also one of the first pictures I had with my new haircut.

Below are some more photos – though not all of them, just the ones I particularly enjoy.
