I am currently sitting at a coffee shop because the power went out at my work. It’s incredibly cute, like something out of Portlandia. I don’t live in Portland, but where I am in California is culturally pretty similar. It’s just a quick pop culture reference that says I’m surrounded by hipsters. I’m supposed to be “working from home”, but that’ll never happen. I share a studio apartment with my husband, a cat, a dog and a spider. When we lived in the Midwest, we had a two bedroom, two bath apartment with a garage, but we could never afford that here. I work at a large selective public university, which I feel like is something they only do here. I used to have a LiveJournal, like a million years ago, and I’ve been missing it lately. There was a certain amount of fandom creepiness and drama that I don’t miss, but short Facebook statuses, leave a lot to be desired in terms of actually knowing what is going on in someone’s life.
