post office

I miss the art of old-fashioned letter writing. I used to write quite a few friends, but it somehow fell by the wayside with the advent of facebook and such. I don't have anything against electronic communication, but there's something so special about getting a handwritten letter in the mail that you can save.

Aaron is working this summer in an archeological museum in the Aleutian Islands in Alaska. The town he is going to be living until August is where the discovery show the the deadliest catch is filmed. I was able to spend about a week with him after I was finished for the semester at SUNY; and he left yesterday. I miss him so much already, but I'm really glad he has a chance to go doing something he is going to enjoy so much. I am going to go meet up with him when he is done in early August in Portland, Oregon; staying with some friends of his. I'm excited about that! I've never been out west and have always wanted to.

Anyway, I had this idea of maybe sending some letters on cool stationary and care packages to Dutch Harbor to surprise Aaron.

So I was trying to think of ideas of stuff to put in the care packages. Do you have any ideas of what might be good to include?

Last month, I traveled through the Adirondacks for the first time when I went with Aaron to see his family in Northern New York. I've never really seen anything like it in person before. I think I've fallen in love with the mountains. I breathe easier when I'm there.

I'm looking for a new place. I want to spend a little less than I am now, and live on my own again. I think I found a complex that I like. It's on the bus line from the University, has utilities included, has a laundromat, and it is next to a beautiful little park. It also seems very safe and quiet.

It's strange to me how many times I've moved over the past three years. I think I counted about six places. I honestly miss Buffalo so much. I miss the people there.
