I'm at Uncommon Ground. | March 29, 2003
I'm here to see Stephanie Morris - she's the woman I mentioned in the last issue, this great alt-country singer who's currently dating my second cousin, both of whom recently moved to Chicago, and both of whom I've been going...

I've started applying for ESL jobs. | March 28, 2003
'ESL,' for those who don't realize, stands for "English as a Second Language," and is one of the cheapest and quickest ways for a poor American to get experiences overseas. For better or for worse, as the US has slowly...

The shock, the awe, the videophones. | March 21, 2003

Ah, it ain't actually that bad! I'll tell ya, though, it's definitely strange to be celebrating my birthday while alone and completely broke - I've done it a number of times in either of those situations, but I think this...

I applied for six jobs today. | March 4, 2003
