Karaoke and farmers' markets have left me incoherently sleepy. Forgive me.

Nate’s going to be happy to see this.

These are exciting times. Changes, large and small, are unfolding and galloping unfettered leaving a wake of chaos and curiosity.

My last day of work was last Friday. Now that I’m unemployed, I really don’t know what to do with myself. So, I don’t do anything anymore. Nothing at all. Oh, I’ve taken to biking and cooking. Biking and cooking, that’s all I do. Nothing else. Oh yea. We went rockclimbing yesterday as well… but I’d trade it all for a thermos.

Nate and I are caught in the midst of a selling and packing frenzy. The date of departure is now July 1st. It’s amazing how much stuff you accumulate over one year! But I like to travel light, so we have to find new homes for it all. So if anyone wants some stuff (couch, futon, kitchen stuff….), just let me know..!

Why are we leaving Seattle? And where are we going?! The weather is just getting nice. Sun has awoken for the first time in months. The forests are green and the Queen Anne picket-fence flowers are up. Summer is near. It’s a shame, but it’s time to move on.

Don’t get me wrong, Seattle has been great. It’s given us so many opportunities to branch out. I’ve gotten a chance to explore the beautiful, diverse state with my science vans. I love exploring the farmers markets during the day and exploiting Capitol Hill’s dancing clubs until early morning hours. Nate and I have gotten a chance to escape to nearby rockclimbing treasures. There’s forest, desert, mountains, rainforest, coastlines, and everything in between. However, the prospect of adventure has prompted me to dust off my traveling shoes and stretch out my wings. Sur America prepare yoself.

So that’s it. My first blog post. Nate’s jumping on the couch with joy. Can’t you see him?

I'm still jumping with joy (although I've moved from the couch)! Can't wait to read more, even though we'll be covering much of the same events! Un bezo para ti.
