After an extended hiatus from blogging, I’m back. Finally, topic matter! Beth and I will set off for Portland tomorrow morning at 6 a.m. CST and arrive at our apartment around 7 p.m. PST on Friday. Along the way, I plan on tweeting the experience because a) It’s not the most scenic trip ever and b) When you are packed into a Ford Fusion with literally all of your belongings, you start to feel claustrophic. I’m hoping blogging/tweeting is the cure.
Follow my Twitter the next couple days – and into the future – at andrewtmiller14.
I seriously plan on getting back into the everyday grind with my blog. I want to detail the experience of moving from one vastly different region/city to another. I’m hoping to write about the culture, the people, the politics – everything Portland. This blog may also turn into a Guide for Young Adults Moving Halfway Across the Country. So be it. Whatever. Anything goes.
Before I take off tomorrow, I’m going to the Great Plains Zoo today with my parents and Beth. Hoping to hang with some goats and penguins and maybe taunt a lion or two. The thing about the zoo is once you get past the smell of elephant poo and the sight of people shoveling it, you’re a little in awe of how many wild animals are held captive squat in the middle of a Midwestern city. It’s mind-boggling. It makes me wish for a Jumanji-like scenario where all the creatures break loose and terrorize the streets of Sioux Falls.
Follow ma’ tweets. I’ve got the Twitterrific app on my iPhone now so it might get to be an onslaught. John Mayer’s got nothing on me.
