I'm back in Portland now. I got in on Monday. The rest of my adventure out east was mostly enjoyable. New York was pretty tight. I got to see a bunch more people that I haven't seen in a while as well as meet some new rad individuals. I got to see Mark and catch up with the stuff that he's been working on. I stayed at 538 Johnson so I finally got to see that place and meet everyone that lives there. Went all over the city with Justine. Got to see Jack and Sean. I spent a lot of time with Sean and we managed to hangout outside of the loft. Spent time with Andy. Went and saw a few sights, ate at some delicious vegan eats etc. I don't have pictures of my own, but when I was with Justine I took most of the pictures, so if you want to see pictures of my travels, look at her blog. Some day I will get a new camera. Mikey and Welch came up the last weekend I was in New York to have Remainder practice with Jack and Ben. They are a great band an when they record you should check it out. I then got a ride with them back to D.C. and met Justine at the airport. I spent the next few days with her and helped her tie up some loose ends before she left the country. After she left there was Positive Youth Fest, which was real fucking boring (except Remainder, and seeing Lee, Kiki and everyone else). The music was not great and I'm 24 where as most of the kids there seemed 17. That ok though, that's what it's for, I probably just won't ever attend the event again. I spent a lot of time with Mikey and got to form a closer relationship with him. I left D.C. on the eve of the madness.

Now I'm back and my two favorite people are no longer in the country. However I am excited for them both. I have a pretty large task at hand anyways. Fucking Thesis. But it'll be tight and I be infamous at the end of all this. I'm tired of writing so I'll com back later and put some more in here.

I go to PNCA. My thesis is (supposed to be at least) about creating conversation through art. More specifically dealing with Northeast Portland. We'll see how that goes. I'm pretty sure I remember you; you live(d) with Ben and I think we were both at the Converge show?
