I actually did everything I wanted to this weekend, and it was great!

Friday afternoon I had the following agenda lined up:

  • Clean the apartment
  • Lay in bed all day
  • Get a [slightly used, but wonderful] iPhone
  • Play outside

And some how, I managed to accomplish each and every single one!


Cleaning the apartment came easier than expected. After seeing a couple Swiffer commercials, I decided that I NEEDED to buy one. Ten minutes later, I owned one and I could NOT WAIT to mop my floors. However, I was beyond surprised to realize that you apparently need batteries. Once that ordeal was dealt with, my floors were clean and made my whole apartment smell a lot better.


Shortly after cleaning, I made a dash to Southeast Portland and had just an “interesting” evening. It all started at Church, where we invaded the [at the time] broken photo booth. It was pretty fun and allowed for some questionable photos. After that, we continued to bar hop the SE area before finishing off (somehow) in Northwest Portland.

The next day, I “accidentally” missed my cycling class and was forced to stay in bed watching terrible TV until it was about 3 PM. Then, it was time to get ready. At precisely 6 PM, a friend called me about meeting up somewhere so that I could purchase their old iPhone 4 that was in perfect condition. Within seconds of receiving that call, I ran to meet him and instantly activated the phone. To say the least, I am very happy to finally have a decent working [smart]phone and am excited to be a part of the iPhone community. Of course, I have already taken a substantial amount of pictures of myself to shameless share with everyone. A perfect example of this can be seen below.




Sunday was absolutely gorgeous and I wanted to be outside all day. Thankfully, my friend Tyler felt the same way. He walked over to my apartment, we left to take care of a couple shopping errands, then ate outside at McMenamins Blue Moon Tavern. After a couple hours off good beers and listening in on the weird girls behind us, we set off for a walk around town. As we were making our way back towards Downtown, I discovered what could quite possibly be my new favorite place. Though some squatter was rambling about stupid stuff outside of it’s closed doors, the Angry Pigeon Gallery offered a lot of promise and I can’t wait to see what’s inside.


The sun was starting to set and Tyler had a great idea; we headed to Council Crest Park. This was a perfect way to end the day. The view was gorgeous, and that echo-ey thing was pretty neat too. But then it started to get a little too cold, and we thought to counteract that by going out for ice cream and milkshakes before heading home to watch the Walking Dead.


To say the least, I had a wonderful weekend. I’m very excited to see what next weekend has in store!
