Off to a good start ...

I haven't updated in several days, but there is oh so much to tell!  This new start is actually going really well.  Work has been kind of slow and haven't had too many chances to socialize with my coworkers but what little discourse I have had, has been great!  I am sure there will be many more opportunities in the future.

As for today, it was quite eventful.  I met my next door neighbours and they were really friendly guys.  I talked to my former roommate's ex-girlfriend today.  She has always been very friendly to me and she invited me out with her friends.  We had an amazing time!  I danced the night away with her and all her cute girlfriends.

So in conclusion, things are off to a great start!

My next request for advice involves the topic of fashion.
The biggest thing I've noticed since moving to the city is how fashionable everyone is.  My neighbours, the people in the street, and the people in the club.  I guess the style is described as 'hipster'.  I have always been a tshirt and loose fitting jeans kind of guy but I feel like I stick out a lot here and don't really fit in.  Some of you may advise that I don't sell my self out.  However, I have no problems with the 'hipster' style.  In fact, I actually like the fashion here.  There was just never any good clothing stores where I was from and I knew people would notice and ridicule me if I went through a sudden change.  However, I'm in a new city where I can have a new start.  The only problem is that I don't know where to start with fashion shopping.  Also, I don't have very much money.

I guess my question is, how should I go about acquiring new apparel.  Hopefully in a manner that isn't too costly.  I hear vintage/thrift shopping is really in and doesn't cost a lot of money.  Any fashion tips from anyone?


  1. Glad things are working out for you.

    But you won't want fashion advice from me. All I wear everyday is jeans, a t-shirt and a dress shirt on top with maybe a hoodie.

  2. fuck fashion!!

    be free. wear what you want.

  3. Glad to hear things are headed in a good direction.

  4. I agree, screw fashion.
    Wear what you like, and what's comfortable.
