Hey guys, my boyfriend is a rap musician. Here is he with his co-rap musician Professor Fizizizt and DJ One-word.

They're called Garden Fresh. I'm pretty proud of them.

Last night I made these granola bar type things with apple butter, oatmeal, coconut and other things. They came out of the oven really really soft and I was a little disappointed. But I put them in the fridge over night and holy shit are they good :O

Rochester <3

Tonight I finally made it to the farmers market in my neighborhood. It's a small market, but man I got some great stuff. I bought beets (they had been picked just a couple of hours before I bought them), lettuce (from a really nice couple that I talked to for a while), a half peck of apples from last year's crop, a huge thing of strawberries, a huge thing of cherries (!!!!), and a bunch of asparagus.

I was hoping to run into a person at the market, but I had so much stuff with me that I walked it all back home. I was going to go back over and get an iced coffee at Boulder and sit outside listening to the music, but instead I decided to lay down in my garden and read in the sun.

For dinner I sauteed some asparagus and onion and beet greens with some white beans. So delicious!

Fitting into summer dresses that the Ellen that existed last year would have never been able to fit into. Pretty awesome!

Also, I'm gonna learn to ride a bike this summer!

Also, life is pretty happy. I keep meeting all of these really nice people that are in love with the city they live in. It's fairly contagious.

Also: I finished reading Grendel on the plane. I wasn't thinking when I packed and the only other book I have with me is a rather large collection of children's stories. Readable, for sure, but not really compact in any way.

Must find a book store.

I haven't been so charmed by music in quite some time. Also, I've been buying lots of books lately. And reading them. Right now I'm re-reading Grendel because Scott mentioned it at some point and I had forgotten how much I like it.

I have moved! My apartment is the most gorgeous thing. I have nice neighbors and a pretty garden to have fun in (I've picked out a stone bench that looks particularly nice for reading) and it took me all of two minutes to walk to Boulder Coffee this morning to get two large and delicious coffees. I can't wait for the farmer's market!

Right now I'm back in the Albany area because I have a class to go to in the morning. But I can't wait to get back. I like Rochester a lot!

Also the nice boy that I mentioned before is still a very nice boy. Yep!

Went to my last Scientific Maps show while I'm living in the Albany area. They told us all about Miracles. Bought their new EP, which everyone should buy because you can get it on itunes. Got a friendly belly poke from Aaron. Got kind of emotional. But I'll be back for their 7" split release with Kitty Little in June!

Now I move onward. Doing some cleaning and getting things ready to move to Rochester. May 6th is the official move date!

So come May 1st or a little bit sooner, I'll be living in an awesome old schoolhouse in the South Wedge neighborhood of Rochester.

I'm excited!

I ended up, strangely enough, working with one of my new neighbors on Thursday. We traveled around Rochester all day being building science nerds. It was super fun.

Not everyone is happy for me and that sort of makes me feel horrible.

But I'm also feeling like I'm in a way better place than I was a year ago. So.

Anyway, I'm excited!

Holy holy holy. I looked at the South Wedge apartment today and it was fucking awesome. It's in an old schoolhouse with original wood floors and lofted ceilings and lots of storage areas and a beautiful garden area and it's totally walkable to fun stuff. The pictures they posted online did not do the place justice at all. I'm still pretty blown away.

But I'm going to go look at the fancypants Corn Hill apartment on Friday, and get in the rental application for this apartment ASAP. The lady I met with said she's not making any decisions until Monday anyway, so I wont miss out if I go look at other places.

So pretty!

I hung out with my Rochester pals last night at Lovin' Cup. I felt terrible and didn't want to go out but I went out and had a good time. Today I feel even worse. I actually learned how to play darts, I had no idea how you actually scored points. And I didn't lose!
