I'm in Seattle!

I'm here!

I took the scenic route through North Dakota.

It snowed in Montana.

I picked up my friend Tamara in Billings and she has been acting as my personal shopper, helping me figure out how to best lay out my room and what pieces I need from a combination of thrift stores, Ikea, and Target.

I got my first new bed ever and it is really nice.

My roommate is really nice. She has a framed award on the wall from when she won her division at the Vancouver Half-Marathon (1/216).

She's fast.

I live half a block from a Wine Warehouse.

I live five blocks from the Theo Chocolate Factory. They have a tasting room.

The weather has been gorgeous and sunny in Seattle every day and we have been able to see Mt. Rainier daily. It really is huge. If you look to the left out my bedroom window, you can watch the sun set over the Olympics.

On the bad side...

I still can't run.

And I have to get back to my stupid dissertation. I have 11 days to finish this chapter. That's not a lot.

Mt. Ranier is totally cool! Enjoy the time in the Pacific Northwest - I think it would be a great place to live.

Good to see that you're enjoying the Seattle Sucker weather (as we call it, weather that's nice for a few days, suckering you in, before it craps all over you for the rest of your life). :)
