Next weekend.

Next weekend is the Washington, DC 46th Annual Sakura Matsuri Japanese Street Festival. technobushi and I are planning to go, along with jarandhel and whomever else can manage to make it. technobushi and I will be celebrating our birthdays the following Tuesday (well, that is, that's the actual date -- I don't know how much actual celebrating will be going on that Tuesday) and I think this'll make a nice little entertaining weekend to coincide with that.  (^*^)

Anybody interested in coming and might need travel arrangements, please let me know. I realize this is short notice; I didn't realize it was already that time of year. Everything keeps rushing by!

On another note, I took a look at the previously mentioned room for rent today, and it is a nice place in a nice area, closer to my work and I'd be living with nice people.. but it is substantially less space for substantially more money, and restrictive in that the owner is a single mother and she has rules like that I wouldn't be allowed to bring over any friends or anything. So I'm not sure I will be taking that, since I don't know what I'd do with all my stuff and wouldn't really have room to walk around. The bed in the one room was actually smaller than the odd mattress-thing that I sleep on now (I really don't know what it qualifies as).

I want to keep looking for places and not just jump on this one, although I did tell her that I would make some sort of decision in the next week and get back to her in one week. I do see her regularly as a waitress at the restaurant where I eat lunch, so it's not like we'll be out of touch.. and if I can manage to find a decent, well paying job in that area, I might consider it. I don't know, though. If I get a well paying job, I might be able to afford something better where I can invite my friends over. We'll see.

Aww.. well I will see you sometime or another. I will be up in New Jersey on the weekend of Friday, April 27 to probably Monday morning, April 30. That's the weekend my parents are due to be moving everything from the rental to the new house, which they are supposed to be settling on April 27 (long day of paperwork).
So, potentially could see you that weekend, but if not, sometime in may I'm sure. Some people around here will actually be taking the National Park Seminary tour that weekend (April 28), but I'll be missing out to help my parents move. I'll be taking the tour some other month though, possibly May, and will be wanting to take my parents on that tour sometime too, whenever they can make it. The tours are the fourth Saturday of every month.

Sorry to hear about the place not quite being what you want. I think that's a lot of money to pay not to be able to have friends over. I can understand some prohibitions against wild parties, etc., but not friends at all seems a bit much. May as well move back in with your parents and live for free if you're going to do that, you know?

I kind of think it's a little much to not allow friends over because you have a child in the house. I personally think that it's to Odin's benefit that I have friends over, especially since it allows him the chance to meet new people and gives him exposure to new ideas, but maybe that's just me.

Ya, she seems to take a very conservative approach to parenting. My understanding is that the kid spends much of his time at his grandmother's, until she gets out of work and goes to pick him up. I dunno, if it works for them, I guess. I'm still trying to weigh the pros and cons of the place, and I'm honestly not as worried about that part as I am about the amount of space.

The room I have now is just enough to be able to at least store what things I don't have sitting out in my room, barely. This place is smaller and with less closet space, meaning there would be no room to move and breathe. I'm still teetering, though. I haven't made a final decision yet, but I mostly just don't want to stretch myself to the edge of my finances in order to move into a smaller space. If I was only making more money, I'd probably go for it.

Check out this place. It's pretty close and if you found a roommate would be fairly cheap:
