Cool Things :)

So, cool things in my life when I'm in the process of moving by next week. Wow, that's crazy. Next week I'll be gone (for 2 weeks). But still, this house I've lived in for the past year will be rented out to someone else. My hoot of a landlord insists I visit her of course. She is quite funny.....Theresa is in her mid 70's, totally enjoying life. She's very sweet, caring and all around a delight to hang with. My friend and I once joined in on a late supper with her & my mom (plus a few of Theresa's nieces friend, and niece). We were quickly served food without asking for it....without evening agreeing to have food. Since we there, we were to eat! Theresa heated some spaghetti & gravy up for us,  and pretty much insisted we had some. Also, this "'gravy" is not the classic Thanksgiving graving. This gravy is that red tomato sauce thing. But according to Italians, this is gravy.

Numerous times Theresa has told me how handsome I am, and how lucky Marin was to be dating me. "If only I was younger!" She said. She's also commented on how cute my friends were, calling them her boyfriends. She adores my headband & style, which is really cool....I'm not sure I can say the same for Sister Geri, Theresa's nun sister. She's nice, but also kinda of a stickler, and highly religious. My mom wondered if she was so uptight cause she's never had sex. That find pretty spectacular. Father Richard is a cool guy who stays with Theresa a few nights of the week. When Theresa first told me mom this, she reassured my Mother that he wasn't a boyfriend. Just long time friends, and Richard was at Theresa's mothes deathbed or something....Not really sure. But he's cool.

Cool things. Learned several songs on guitar including Franklin's Tower (by The Grateful Dead) a favorite of mine. I'm also pretty excited about goin' down to Austin! Sadly for me, I may not wear all the clothes I'd like to on the way down there....evidently, Texan's like their guns....

When I arrive back to Boston, I'm going to a Junior Prom!
Marin & I are going to her school, for a biiiiiiiig dance. I'll also being were a Tux
On the formalitly bar, that beats what I wore to the Winchester Semi-Formal!

The Tux I'm wearing is my Mom's stepdad's. It's pretty hip, it has tails!

But the "coolest" thing is about this blog!

People in Europe have read my blog! And in Singapore! That was a little mind blowing to me! I don't know anyone there. Crazy. People have read it in Canada too, but I know several people was good to see, but not WILD CRAZY OHHMGEEEEEE!

So there ya go :)
Back to packing , groovin' to the Allman Brothers

Cowboyin' it up to play some Texas Blues!

Hey...Life is is currently a swirl of chaos, and a spiral of organizations......
I'm moving to Austin Texas!
That's right kids, and we're leavin' soon! My mother & I will be leaving this state of Massachusetts by the end of April. Then with our good friend Micheal we'll be roadtrippin' down to good 'ole Texas. Not that I really think Texas is all that great. As my good friend Jonah put it "Austin's the only place you wouldn't get shot." from what I've heard, Austin is pretty hip. It's also the capital which I found quite surprising, totally thought the Cap would be Houston or Dallas. Dallas Cowboys N' such....but nope, Austin is. Austin has a giant music scene, and a lot to do. So yeah, I'm pretty excited!
But fear not Northern loved ones! I'll be flyin' back to Boston a week after I arrive, and staying throughout the summer. Then in October comes my birthday, followed closely by good 'ole X-Mas. And those special days are always better with friends. So I might not be down South till the New Year. Who knows man.....Oh and, I'll be back & forth between Austin & Boston :) Two homes, two very different places
So I'm sorry my (NOW 10, NOT 7, BUT 10) followers about my lack of writing. Water Street (my mother & I's home) is ordered chaos and as my Mom put it, "Transitional Wings". (I used to have 7 followers but now I have 10, all according the google whatevers)
So yeah, crazyness. Walls are mostly bare, and there are a lot of boxes. So many boxes....some empty, some filled. A LOT, has been done here. Mainly by my crazy Mother <3.
This whole process reminds me of last year, when we (my mother & I) moved to our current-not-for-long home. Course I don't want this to be an every year thing. Last year was my first move, more or less down the street from 38 Eaton Street to Water Street.

Okay so why am I moving? Yeah good question Chuck (You are now Chuck).
Well, financially, the year has been really tough between house rent AND a rent for my Mom's office. At Eaton Street she worked "out of the house" as in inside the house. And now, for the first time in my life, that phrase actually makes sense to me. Wow. Crazy, I get it! Yay dude. I've known it for years, and never got that phrase. She also is really tired of New England, and has a great friend in Austin (who we are moving in with)

MAN! It's so nice out right now (2 am early Tuesday Morn, the 12th). Night birds. Man, Spring is here and it's beautiful. Today was so warm (Monday the 11th). Still haven't worn a sarong yet....but barefoot, oh yes! I must listen to these night birds again. They made such a pleasant sound as I took a short walk and gazed at the sky. So happy to be writing again <3
I'd love to go on about my nice warm day with my beloved girlfriend, packing, and other rambles....but I must sleep. So here it is folks, I'm on a new adventure! Ya-hoo!
Love to you all,
