Seattle

This photo pretty much sums it up… While my brother Roy was home at Christmas he proposed the idea of coming there (Seattle) for the summer. I told him I’d think about it even though I kind of knew what my answer would be. Earlier this week I finally made the decision to do it. Now is a good of time as any to do something like this – I don’t have anyone or anything holding me back other than my fear of making changes in my life. I weighed the pros and cons, and the only cons I could come up with was missing out on a class this summer and finding a job. Finding a job was and still is the big issue I’m concerned about.

This should be even more reason for you to make the switch to a real computer. JUST KIDDING! ( Not really! 🙂 ) Here are some other photos that I’ve used with the Poladroid application: I’ve already started thinking about possible traveling in 2009, yes, it’s a little early, but I always like to have things to look […]
