I am in Vilnius, Lithuania, at the Home Made House hostel! It’s a lot smaller — actually, well, a house — which has ups and downs. There’s actually people around, which is kind of nice. One of my dormmates is … Continue reading

hostel life, redux number… a lot

I’m in motherfucking Iceland! Got in at ass o’clock in the morning, after a wonderfully uneventful flight — better than uneventful, even, since it was ahead of schedule, and a couple near me asked if I could switch from middle to … Continue reading

End of hostel era

I’m sitting in a hostel across the street from King Street Station.  It is probably the last one I’ll be in for awhile, which is a strange feeling.  The walls are aggressively yellow, and it smells like something cruciferous is … Continue reading

Seattle: things and stuff

God, I just want to relax. It’s been 88 days since I had my own space, though even that, it’s been many years since that tiny bedroom in a town I hate felt like my own.  And it’s been 388 … Continue reading

Seattle: Placeholder

Day 9: Montreal // This Hostel is a !@#$ing Blanket Fort, You Guys

No, seriously. Okay, not entirely seriously.  But kind of.  I’m staying in the huge rambling 22-bed dorm that’s basically just the attic of a Vieux-Montréal townhouse, kind of sectioned off with poster board and old curtains and blankets strung from the … Continue reading

Day is a Vestigial Mode of Time Measurement Based on Solar Cycles: Washington DC

(I didn’t get you anything.) Anyway, fuck, I have neglected my New York City redux visit badly here, haven’t I?  I suppose I didn’t do anything exciting in and of itself, though.  Besides, you know… be in New York City. … Continue reading

Day… 9 weeks x 7 days, plus 2… 65? Day 65!: New York City / Redux

And thus ends my sweet sojourn in Boston.  My fantastic friend/host Colin dropped me off on the train, whereupon I promptly missed my bus because I forgot that the Red Line is a dick on weekends, but hopped on the … Continue reading

Day 46: New York City / Every Day Life

OK, my malaise was pretty thoroughly burnt off after biking over the Brooklyn Bridge, through Manhattan and through Central Park. I was a little terrified at the prospect of biking through New York, and it’s a little fucking terrifying, but it’s … Continue reading
