Stick and Move, Stick and Move

What originally was intended to be a few month stay at the parents house, back in August of 2007, turned into two full years. I moved up to North Bothell / South Mill Creek area yesterday to live with a friend from my teaching program. The two years with my parents went by incredibly fast, and I figure time will only speed up the older I get:

(you can ignore the video, but this version of "Landslide" is amazing)

I can't thank my parents enough for allowing me to live rent-free for the past two years. The teaching program would not have been possible, or at least I would be up to my neck in debt. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

I'm excited to be living "on my own" again, but the perks of living with the rents' will be hard to give up (hot tub, free, pool close by, in Seattle). I'm closer to some friends and further away from others now that I'm up in Bothell. I also think there are more schools around this area, at least more school districts, but on the downside I don't have any experience working around here, and the connections that come with work experience.

My plan for the next few weeks is to sell myself as a math tutor to the schools in the area and volunteer as a math tutor to get the ball rolling. Hopefully a subbing job will fall my way if I have an active presence in multiple schools.

In weekly update news, I camped at Baker Lake last week, and attended a Mariner's game on Saturday night in some pretty nice seats:

Tell me about that pic standing on the water. Very cool.

Mount Baker Lake is a man-made lake, so the whole lake bed once presumably forest or meadow. This one tree trunk stuck out about a foot from the middle of the water, and it went down as far as I could see swimming right next to it. I hopped on and Mary Ann got a pic from the shore.
