1. Worried I will wake up my friend if I text him at 4 am.
2. Extra nervousness directed at outstanding bills.
3. Highly conscious of my ineffectiveness at paying these bills, and the arbitrary nature of these bills. Smiles because of the "easy way out."
4. Tiptoeing around apartment because I don't want to get evicted.
5. Trying to wake up and write early in the morning. And sober.
6. Drinking Bacardi and Diet Coke to head the beer belly off at the pass.
7. Trying to get roommate to bet on who will get swine flu first.
8. All my attempts at "universality" and "culturelessness" feel sloppy.
9. Should I become more active in the poetry community?
10. I guess I should do something eventually, maybe if it involves jumping.

Ok, so I have been in Portland for a few days. Here are some things I have noticed:

•99% of the people in the Pearl District are super models.
•I need to work on being prettier.
•Everyone in this city is in a band.
•It's probably not a great idea to take a drunken walk up to Safeway for more beer by yourself at 11pm.
•I really suck at Madden right now.
•Listlessness has never been easier.
•No one really knows how to drive up here, and no one ever knows where they are going.

I might try to get a wristband for MusicFestNW. Are any of you going? Anyone want to help me notice more things about Portland?

Some Things That Will Occur In The Near Future

9/6/2009 - This is today. Today is a blank day.

9/7/2009 - This is my last day of work at the airport. I will be here from 8am to 12pm and I will probably just read blogs and drink coffee. Then I will gather some things from my parents house and drive up to Ashland. This will likely be my last night in Ashland.

9/8/2009 - I think I will wake up early this day and pick up my friend Corey. We will drive a few hours to the Sky Lakes Wilderness and backpack for 2 nights and 3 days.

9/9/2009 - Will probably be camping and hiking.

9/10/2009 - We will return from hiking in the Sky Lakes Wilderness. I will drive back to Weed and try to pack my belongings. Might pick up a U-Haul truck on this day.

9/11/2009 - I will pack all of my stuff into the U-Haul and drive to Portland. There is a possibility I will stop at a few places on the way. When I get to my new apartment, I will unpack my things from the U-Haul and then probably return the U-Haul to "Stan's Restaurant Equipment" -- a business that seems to offer both restaurant equipment and U-Haul trucks. At some point during the day I will think "9/11 -- Never Forget." After I drop off the U-Haul and return to my apartment I will begin the process of "trying to get used to things." This may take several weeks or even months.

9/12/2009 - 9/27/2009 - These are blank days.

9/28/2009 - On this day I will start grad school at PSU and feel a little bit overwhelmed but hopefully calm and serious.

9/29/2009 - ? As of right now these are blank days.
