AT STARBUCKS!? Go to the Market!!!! See the flying fish! Sit on the huge copper pig! Eat clam chowder at the Soundview Cafe! sdjfalksdjfaks;dj SEATTLE! I miss it. I’m jealous, Tessa. Very jealous.
I want to be proposed-to here. Someone write that down and keep it mind to tell my future husband, ok? Okay.
My head: cieurgfisugdkshf WHERE DO I EVEN START?!
What I said: I think the northwest is the only place I’ve ever felt home. It’s mountainous and everything is always green. It’s cloudy, but in a cozy way, not a gloomy way. There’s so much art and music in Seattle and it’s a huge cultural crossroads because it’s a port city. The market’s hopping all year round and the air always smells if the Puget Sound sea water. The surrounding islands have gorgeous cliff faces that plummet down into the gray water. Lopez island is probably my favorite place outside the actual city of Seattle. I can’t imagine living anywhere else.
i talked to my mom today about how much i hate it here. she’s probably the only person who knows any of this. (well now that it’s out on the internet, anyone who reads this will know, but otherwise nobody has a clue.) i hope she talks to my dad and can make him understand that i can’t stand being here any longer. i’m sorry to all my friends here - i really do love you all - i just can’t be somewhere i abhor. ohio is one of those places. i know i dont really have any friends back in the northwest. i only have four. five if you count my boyfriend. yet it’s the only place i’ve ever felt i could really call my home. i was going to try to stick it out until the end of senior year. for theater. but not even theater can keep me here anymore. if i move back, i’ll homeschool for my senior year and do plays with the local theater company. i just can’t live here anymore.
Day 13: hand write the first 10 things that pop into your head
(sorry this is late — havent been free lately >.<)
Just cooked this up. Just a little idea I’ve been thinking of the last few days
Four of my favourite bands (Soundgarden, Nirvana, Alice in Chains and Pearl Jam) all hail from the city of Seattle and emerged together at the same time in the late 80s/early 90s to form the “grunge” music scene, or the “Seattle Sound”. There are many other grunge bands from the area who came about due to the success of these bands, but they are regarded as “The Big Four” of grunge.
