Salem, Oregon

Yesterday I went down to Salem to find a place to live for the first of law school. I think I’ve found an adequate studio that is only a fifteen minute walk from the law building and only three or four blocks from a Safeway. It’s pretty cheap and in decent shape. I wasn’t looking for much anyway. I don’t think I’ll be spending a lot of time there. I just need a place to store my stuff, cook food, and sleep. After walking around Salem and getting a better feel of the campus, I’m not so bothered by living in Salem. I’m sure it will get boring eventually, but I will be studying so much it won’t really matter, now will it? Besides, I’m going to law school to work hard, not have fun. Right?

I got to visit Greg for a bit. He showed me a cool coffee shop that has free wifi that is only a few blocks away from Willamette campus. I’m guessing I’ll be spending quite a bit of time there. Greg is moving out to DC to be an intern for an Oregon congressman. He plans driving out there by the end of the week. I wish him the best of luck, and I’m sure he’ll do just fine out there. I also got to visit my old friend Jill who’s stuck way out in Vancouver, WA. We’ve known each other since freshman year, though our relationship could be characterized as irregular. We don’t talk for six months, and then we’ll go have dinner. Then we won’t talk for another six months or something like that.
