yay you’re alive! hope your foot gets better soon, but glad to hear you’ve settled in well. how’s lia doing?
yay! thanks, bb! me too, i want to go out and see things, especially now that it’s getting cooler and super ~pleasant.
Lia’s doing fine. :) she’s not entirely sure she wants to stay here, all she talks about is going back to japan lol (not that she doesn’t like it here, she does, but her brain sort of lives there idk).
are you going to skam? it’s the second year in a row that i’m going to be so close and yet so far away…:/ really cannot afford anything rn, the move killed our savings, meh. next time. or, you know, worlds in boston. \o/
thank you, boston bbs who replied to my questions about Jamaica Plain etc. i replied individually, but ugh tumblr, idk.
i’ve been in boston for two months now (well, i ended up in the suburbs, which is fine for now but hopefully in a year or two we’ll be able to afford a non-matchbox-sized place in ~the city), during which time i got married (yay!) and fell down the stairs, ha. i was bedridden for almost a month and my left foot is still a bit crap, but i can limp around now. no great outings for me yet, but i did go to symphony hall for some villa-lobos (bachianas n. 5, short but gorgeous) and beethoven’s 5th, which was a bit ‘whoa there, mate, calm down’ for the first two movements but got noticeably better after that. well, the program actually started with mozart’s sinfonia concertante for four winds, which i tried to like because winds! but as with most things mozart, around 80% of it was super annoying/boring. #blasphe-me blasphe-you etc
i’m going to throw this out there because i would really like to meet my _skating bros, so if anyone’s up for a
boring low-key lunch or coffee or st with the _skating granny, please let me know! i’m free almost everyday, so it should be easy to arrange something around your schedules.
