Loc: The Wizard's Balcony
This past week turned out to be pretty good to me. On Thursday I found a place to stay permanently (well, it's a roommate situation, so for the time-being at least), and on Friday, I got hired at a copy shop just a block or so away from the 7th ave. location of a pretty good coffee shop that Steve told me about.<br><br>I have to admit, the job isn't my ideal situation, but it's gonna' keep the rent-man happy while I get my footing. On top of that, I've been living alone for the past eight years, so I'm not sure how much I'll like having roommates, but you gotta' take the bad with the good, right?<br><br>
So the roommie . . . someone you knew from before? Sometimes a blank slate is best. Good luck with sharing your space. Look at it this way--it's good practice for when you tie the knot. <br><br>[color:red]</font color=red> [color:orange]</font color=orange> [color:yellow]</font color=yellow> [color:green]</font color=green> [color:blue]</font color=blue> [color:purple]</font color=purple>

Knowing zero of your situation I would advocate room mates big time. A really energetic one is better. Get you out of the apartment and meeting people. People different than you even better. You're in the top three most exciting cities in the world, take advantage of the situation. You have no money but that shouldn't stop you. Find ways to get in and mingle. This is the time to do stupid and outrageous things as long as you do not kill people. While you are doing it, take a picture. Even in New York City you can be unique. Surprising how everyone wants to be unique and outrageous in the same way. Don't do it. Lick the unlickable. Get a tuxedo. Crash some parties. Getting arrested is not a huge deal but you know you can talk your way out of it.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>

Poly...I sent Trey a link to a site that regularly blogs out a bunch of places to drink for free or really cheap. That's a great way to impose yourself into different groups of people.<br><br>http://nyc.myopenbar.com/<br><br>And the classic, bulletproof story for diverting trouble if you get busted for crashing a party while wearing a tux:<br><br>You tell anybody who questions your presence and really seems like they want to make trouble that you were best man at a wedding where your pal got stood up & left at the altar. You say you wanted to be there for him, because he IS your best friend, after all, but he dismissed you to go try to find the bride. You paid for a whole day's rental on the tux, might as well use it!<br><br>(I did it once. It worked like a charm and I gathered up on a lot of lady sympathy. <img src=http://home.comcast.net/~phosphor-digital/bbs/yybull.png>)<br><br>"This is not here."

I'm moving in with strangers, which will be odd, but whatever. It's only temporary. And the place I'm living is in Clinton Hill, just the job is in Park Slope.<br><br>Steve, I'll definitely check out that flea market... thanks!<br><br>One thing that really sucks about all this moving business is that I forgot to get my paperwork in in time to vote.<br><br>Well, off to work. <br><br>
