Limit: 5 people per permit. We should have just limited it to 4 people. 5 is too complicated.
I hate having to vote someone off, but it has to happen. I need man up, and not feel stressed about it.
Epic hiking adventures= wonderland trail.
Finished! I did it, and I feel good. I didn't train as rigorously as I could have, but what the hey- I'm doing it for the fun of it. It's a start. 2:26min. I'm a slow poke.
Although, I should have 1. Packed a sweatshirt/ long sleeves, and 2. brought my ipod
I loved sprinting it towards the end. It was awesome. I hope I can retrieve pictures from the race.
Right now, I am pooped. I already napped, but I don't want to anymore because its such a beautiful day out, and I think its too late for coffee.
peace out seattle i love you

Vantage, near the Columbia River Gorge, WA.
Awesome! granted they were 30ft rock faces, and not crazy technical...I still had fun, and definately think I'll continue this business.
too tired to type ...
It finally felt like spring these past two days. I like the smell of spring time. It was sunny and in the high 60s. The trees are just about budding, and it's really gorgeous. I love the wide variety of trees and flowers here- a main reason why I fell in love with the northwest.
So i caught up on sleep and took the ferry over to Bainbridge Island. It was pretty sweet seeing Seattle, the Cascade mountain range and Rainer over the Puget Sound. So Ryan and I ate at a thai place and had some brews. The waitress basically ordered my beer for me. "You like Thai beer? Its good, get Thai beer"
After lunch we rode our bikes around the island. Got told by a school bus driver that "THE STOP SIGNS APPLIED TO ALL VEHICLES" and stopped right in front of it waiting for nothing. It wasn't like I was weaving through the kids (they weren't even crossing the street) What an asshat. People and their power trips over cyclists. Anyway, we found a little beach to hand out at. ryan took a nap and I was picking up the tiniest seashells i could find. haha. Having time to just fuck around made me miss drawing. I haven't done anything real in such a long time.
So we rode around the rest of the island for a while. I loved it. I wish i had time to take a really long bike trip (Alaska? Oregon coast? **le sigh) Also made me realize i need a bike with gears. Going uphill was kind of a pain, and not being able to coast downhill also a little scary. In total, we rode about 20miles. I feel great! My back is sore today though. laaame.

i love the taste of coffee. it makes me real happy.
also i really enjoy yoga. I ran to class today and it was exciting. Class helped me find inner confidence, now i'm standing taller and smiling at the world. hoorayy!
Really? Apparently it isn't everyday.
Seattle has been cool so far. I like it. I like having visitors, but i feel bad not knowing "the spots" yet.
I am learning more about work, and how things run at the hospital. I have mixed feelings. I think no matter how "good" the hospital is- it's always a mess. I get nervous thinking about going back on my days off. I can't wait to not be new anymore...
I think i'm going to bake cookies.

Spent in Tahoe + Reno
Snowboarding on the west coast is totally different from east coast.
Snow is powdery and its sweet because it doesn't hurt when you wipe out.
...only 2 days after i'm sore from the chin down. haha
Reno is also cool because its a dive-ier version of vegas and less overwhelming. Also super cheap! $22/night for a hotel. haha WIn! the desert moutains are incredible dusted with snow.
I feel a little un-american this season, but whatevs.

Future: Seattle, WA
New city, fresh start.
Its such a relief to finally get good news on the job front. Its kind of sad how I exhausted the prospects in Northern California. Can't say I didn't try.
Last night was interesting to say the least. All I want to say is that racism still happens, even though I didn't think it could happen now, here and always. Its really unfortunate that people can think its ok to be ignorant and hate on someone they don't even know. I'm not going to dwell on it much longer because its useless. But I just feel bad for that person for not being able to get out of his own miserable mind set.
