til the big move up! I have this excited/nervous/anxious feeling all rolled up in a ball inside me right now. But I think I am mainly in awe right now…of how much stuff I’ve accumulated all these years. I’ve been packing these past couple weeks, and somehow my moving up stuff has been slowly growing larger and larger, from one box in the corner of the living room to taking up at least an entire quarter of it. And I’m still not done!
Honestly though I am excited about the move, and I think visiting Seattle last week really cemented that feeling. Granted, I came on the perfect week (nice and sunny, with no rain in sight!) Seattle is so green, and I love its old buildings and its public transportation. The skyline is beautiful, almost(!) as great as SF’s. The campus is really nice as well. The Chinatown there could use some work (besides the Uwajimaya, there’s nothing!), and the drivers could watch for pedestrians more often. I nearly got run over twice. Overall though Seattle felt like a place that I could live in for at least two years, if not longer.
