Well today I leave Grandma's house. Off to Washington DC to look at apartments and spent time with chucklemange and ideally have a fun time. Huzzah?

Actually I am looking forward to it and it will be nice to look at places. I have more then a few good spots and I know there are cool people in the area to hang out with so overall yay!

Well. I gotta say, I had some good times when I lived in D.C. for a year. Actually I lived in the Clarendon area of Arlington Virginia which was right across the river and just as urban. It was really cool living there. I was sad to have to leave it and come back to Cleveland.

Also, if you're looking for a good church, try clarendon united methodist church. It was kind of fun and different. Not too liberal, not too conservative, accepting of gays actually. It's funny how that was over five years ago and some of the older members still remember me and are glad to see me when I visit.

I also spent some good time doing some volunteer work with the outreach project sending computers and refrigerators to central america. The guy in charge was Glen Evans. He was a great guy actually. But yeah. I lived only two blocks from Clarendon church. I wish I could find a place like that here in Cleveland.

Clarendon is a little far from work but it might work if one housing options fiddles out... we'll see but good advice and thanks for the info about the church.

Clarendon is not cheap either. If you are willing to deal with the long commutes and horrendous traffic, it gets a lot cheaper the further out you live. I knew a friend of a friend who bought a pretty nice condo out in centerville virginia for less that 150 grand.

Then again for the same price in Cleveland, you can get an all brick three story house with some fairly nice features. Then again you can't find a job in Cleveland to pay for it either. D.C. ALWAYS had jobs available.

Yeah, Clarendon UMC had some unusual and different energy about it. It was always kind of a fun place to be in many ways. I have yet to find a place quite like it with the same atmosphere and the same cool energy.
