Well, I'm in Vermont! The move was pretty painless, all things considered. I can't remember if I mentioned it on here, but my friend and fellow cartoonist Julia Wertz is the person who moved in to my old apartment in Brooklyn.
So Sunday morning I picked up the Uhaul and drove over to Julia's place, where we met up with Sarah and Aaron. We all loaded Julia's crap into the truck, drove from Bushwick to Williamsburg, loaded all her stuff up into the apartment, then loaded all of MY stuff back down to the truck, and then Rachel and I hit the road!
It felt so surreal driving out of New York. It really didn't seem like I was leaving... Anyway, the drive was really nice, except for some seriously heavy rain at one point, and before we knew it we were in White River Junction, Vermont!
The new apartment is AMAZING! After getting some dinner with the gang, Rachel and I came back to the place and tried to unpack a few things and try to start figuring out where things will go. (I will post some Flickr pictures once I get everything sorted out...)
Monday I wandered around White River Junction with Rachel, showing her the school and most of the town (there's not much, so it only takes a few hours...) And then we spent many more hours in the apartment, trying to make everything make sense.
This morning Rachel hopped on the train back to New York, and I got back to work on some of the projects I wasn't quite able to finish off before the move.
Supposedly most of the first year students will be showing up this week, as well as my fellow Fellow, Chris Wright. I'm excited for everything to get rolling here at the school, but it'll be nice to have a month to settle in. It's a little weird because I have come up to CCS a few times for short visits. But now I LIVE here. That will take some getting used to...
OH! I almost forgot! I'm also going to be part of a reading THIS FRIDAY, August 1st at 6pm in the Mainstreet Museum (next to the CCS Library!) It's going to be me, Robyn, Karen Sneider and Jon Lewis reading our comics. A good time will be had by all! If you're in town, please swing by!
