Happy Anniversary (two days late…)

My pastor asked me how long I’d lived in Seattle yesterday.

I did the math and realized it’s been TWO YEARS.

WOW.

I guess that makes me a bonafide local.

Even though most days I hate living here, I wanted to celebrate this milestone.

If not celebrate, at least recognize.

I don’t think I’ll live here forever. But I love my church and the company I work for – I would be loath to leave them.

To mark this occasion, here are some things I’ve learned since moving here:

  1. The Light Rail only goes so far. When in doubt, take a bus.
  2. MAKE SURE YOU CHECK THE WEEKEND BUS SCHEDULE, or you could be stranded in University District without a ride to your friend’s wedding in Sand Point.
  3. Never go to Pike Place Market after 12:00 PM. NEVER GO THERE.
  4. Mainline Protestantism is a thing.
  5. I have stronger beliefs about LGBTQ rights and communion than I realized.
  6. You can never have too many books.
  7. Just kidding if you live in a studio.
  8. Rich people have bedrooms. If you want a bedroom so bad, find a roommate.
  9. Summit Street Starbucks on Capitol Hill has the best staff.
  10. Not all theatre is worth your time.

In 2014, tired of my pop culture rants, my mom told me, "You should start a blog!" In 2015, needing a place to gush about the new Star Wars trilogy, I created this site. In 2016, while working an insane schedule at the local bakery, I stopped writing. That same year, I moved to Seattle. Picture every fresh-faced young woman you've ever seen stepping out of a taxi in a movie. That was me...only with a lot more anxiety and shorter hair. Living here has been a trip. I'm not always happy, but I find plenty of stuff to write about. I love to call out, complain, overreact, analyze, and reimagine. This site contains the fruit of that labor.
