Hello Internet friends, new and old.

Today I am heading home to San Rafael for the weekend and totally paying tribute to my stepmom. Will be seeing my uncle, cousins, Betty's family, family friends, etc. Certainly nice to see all of them after so much time.

But today also marks Part 1 of Get The Hell Out Of Seattle, where I pack up as much of my room as possible in a few suitcases, head to California, and return with empty, bigger suitcases. I'll be doing it again at the start of Spring break, and then after Sakuracon I'm leavin' for good. Either my mom's heading up or I'm just renting a car to take down. If this supposed roommate who's moving from Cuba to take my place doesn't call soon, I'm going to have to find something to do about all this furniture that I'm not moving. Oy boy.

It will, only as of recently, be sad to leave Seattle, because I've been steadily cultivating friends from a lot of places: roommates, the BEMANI dudez, CSE grads, Secular Student Union pals. I really have to think about starting and re-starting a number of friendships once I head to California, as it might be the longest time I've stayed at my dad's since I started going to college in 2003. I also have to get used to not walking everywhere and using my late stepmom's Jaguar instead. Fancy car, but not my style.

Oh well. Back to packing.

I'm sure I missed something, but why are you moving back to San Rafael? It is because your stepmom died?

1) Nothing to do in Seattle next quarter.
2) Yeah, I want to be around for my dad.
3) Want to get a job.
4) Don't need to pay rent.
5) Thinking of heading to Israel over the summer, so I want to spend some time at home before that.

You're still around in the south bay, right?
