The idea to move Northwest originally came from a conversation between my friend Ann and me. When I came out here, she knew she wanted to come join me. At the beginning of August, she finally made it. She moved in, and now the apartment isn’t so lonely anymore. Soon after Ann moved in, our friends Nathaniel from Ohio, Chris from Ontario, and Rushi from Oregon all came to visit us. Teamed with Shishka and Rayme who already live in Seattle, we comprised one of the largest gatherings ever of folks from our IRC channel. Some of Nathaniel’s friends own a very fancy restaurant in Capitol Hill, and they treated us to dinner for Nathaniel’s birthday. It was one of the finest meals I’ve ever eaten.
