Before she got here I made sure to clean up our new place, I also took some pictures so for those of you who haven't visited (I'm looking at you mom) so you can see what the place looks like, cleaned and furnished.
Now that Rachel is on her final leg of the trip, I'm getting more and more nervous and excited. Not that I'm scared, in fact I'm very confident about our future together, I'm nervous because I don't want to be accidentally late! It's going to be an exciting year for us as we live our life together. I expect that we'll step on each other's toes and we'll get into tiffs from time to time but what makes our relationship special to me is our ability to communicate and work out issues rationally.
I'm excited for Rachel's new life in Seattle!

So this was a really interesting night. I had just finished watching Troll hunter, a super awesome fake documentary about some college kids following a hinter of trolls in Norway, for the Seattle International Film Festival.
|Like this but with 93% more night|
As the bus approached the convention center the man wakes up in a slightly drunken stooper. He looks out the window and realizes that he must have missed his stop. He pulls the "stop" cord and stomps up to the front of the bus in a panic. Then it gets bad...
He begins yelling at the bus driver. "DIDN'T YOU HEAR THE BELL. STOP NOW. STOP HERE!" The bus driver ignoring him (it was past 2am and I'm sure he's used to this sort of abuse) just agitated him more. "WHAT THE F*** ARE YOU DOING MAN!? STOP THE F***IN' BUS!" When the bus driver does finally gets to the next stop (~2 min. since the man started yelling) the doors open and the man continues to yell... not even getting off. The driver just says, "you should get off" and points to the open doors. "F*** THIS YOU SHOULD HAVE LET ME OFF WHEN I..." etc. When he does get off the driver closes the doors as soon as the drunken man is clear of the doors. We drive off into the night while the guy continues to ramble and berate the bus from the outside.
But it gets better. So after dealing with Mr. inebriation I get off and grab my phone (<10% battery) and hope to grab a bus. Uh oh. Google Maps says I missed the bus home by 4 minutes - the next one is in an hour and a half. So I make my way to the bus stop and I sit down in a slightly sketchy part of downtown where the night begins to become colder and I'm alone and thermally unprepared for the next hour and a half.
Then it begins drizzling. I huddle under a local shop's awning and I sit and wait. As the time passes I get colder and I tuck my sweatshirt into my pants and I recede my arms into the hoody. After what seemed like 4 hours, my bus finally arrived. Let me tell you, when I got home from my 2.5 hour journey, my bed never felt so good.

Just had a crazy dream : I had finished a test I did poorly on with a teacher who used my sheet as an example of a poor grade. After class he feels horrible and offers to drive me home. We get in his car and begin going uphill. He then accelerates as fast as he can up this steep hill and we go flying up and off at an almost vertical angle. Gravity comes into effect and we begin looking down this steep hill mid-fall. I scream. We begin falling towards the hill and end up landing on the top instead. I'm panicked and yet relieved things turned the way they did.
Flying to falling dreams are my least favorite ones. Those are the dreams I never want to have. I'm always afraid of the falling part.

Let me get you caught up!
Arduino, and just plain had a good winter (despite the cold and gloomy weather).
Quite possibly one of my favorite parts of the entire fair was Captain Unicorn! Kids were so excited to play the "Unicorn video game" where the captain would put on a puppet show involving aliens, tornadoes and victory for every child who upon winning the game would get "thumbsies" and a salute by the captain himself. Not only did it bring smiles to the timid kids, but it brought smiles to every adult witnessing the magic of this crazy character.
Thanks for reading everyone!
