So, I was completely wrong. The apartment was actually really nice.. and with the price point as it was, I’m pretty sure I’m going to take it! Actually, I’ve already committed. I’ve sent in an application and everything, and will be dropping off a check tomorrow morning. Now, basically, it’s up to the landlord to [...]


I know I’ve been bad about updating this blog recently, but trust me when I say, things have been a bit hectic over here. I haven’t really been doing much recently aside from working. Come the end of the day, sitting at the computer and typing out a blog post is literally the last thing on [...]

Today, I finally got my iPhone. I ordered it online a week ago, and it showed up a couple of hours ago, which is nice, seeing as Apple said it would be coming on the 25th. Now, I just need to go down to AT&T and buy into a plan of some sort, and I [...]


Continued from here. I’d been home for about 10 minutes before my phone started ringing. Now, I really should mention that the weather outside was really pleasant, especially considering we had a snowstorm a week earlier. This would be a good thing if I was dressed appropriately, but of course, I wasn’t. I was wearing [...]

Eventful Saturday

As I mentioned yesterday, Last Saturday was an eventful day. In the morning, I went out to see a couple of apartments, I’d scheduled viewings through a real estate agent. I met her (the agent) in front of the first apartment, saw it, then she drove us to the second one. The first apartment was [...]

I’m bored at work, so I’m tossing out a random rambling update. I still have a post about last weekend that I’m working on, but as it was somewhat eventful, the post is long, and I’m not spending enough time at home to work on it. Not too much happened this week. I got my [...]

My Social Security Number showed up today! I shouldn’t be this excited over a piece of paper (yes, it’s not a plastic or laminated card, it’s just a piece of cardboard), but I am. I feel legal now! Next stop, getting myself a real damned phone! Note: My weekend was eventful. I’m writing up the [...]

I’ve been on this rant before. You’ve all heard it. When I was planning my trip to the US, I was looking into what bank to use when I was here. I really wanted to avoid the ‘big’ banks, due to all the horror stories I hear about hidden fees and so on. I was [...]

Best Park Ever

A few days ago, I went out for a walk, mainly to continue exploring my neighborhood. The way the South End is laid out, you have a lot of small parks hidden in the little streets between the main avenues. So I ran across this gem. *photo credit: user HarleyHandy on Panoramio

Oct 312011

There really isn’t much to update after Saturday’s shenanigans. I did a bunch of Internet searching on Sunday, trying to find out what events are happening around town, places to eat, and so on. I found a link to “healthy eating in Boston”, which pointed me to, get this, a fast food place called B. [...]
