Japanese Gardens!

I went into Portland the other day to send my mom off to Brazil and spend more time with my girl; I ended up going to the Japanese Gardens with my good friend Jordan, you can check out the pictures here on facebook

new thoughts

Finally got confirmation from the University, paid off my student account, and now I'm expecting my diploma to arrive soon! I hope I'l be able to start work in Japan by October. I'm lookin for some arubaito (part time work) for the time being but there's slim pickings in Hood River now that all the tourists aren't swarming the area. Maybe I'll take a server job or work pizza again. Anything that pays, right?
Things are starting to slow down in Hood River which is sort of nice, but I am missing the busyness of Eugene, even if it's full of bright eyed naïve freshman. Lately I have been enjoying myself more in Portland. The Hawthorne district is way cool! Plus my girlfriend just got a veiled chameleon!
