It's official: we are going to Portland for law school!
I knew the instant I set foot outside the Sacramento airport. Sac and
Davis are just so... California... Which is just so not me. So flat,
and overly sunny, and beach-dude-like, and chain-restaurant-and-
traffic-filled. Yeah, even Davis has lots of thick traffic, and it's
smaller than Salt Lake! Lots of bikes around, though, but
unfortunately the cyclists are not the spandex-sporting sort of
cyclists which, I admit, I have a strange fascination and admiration
for. I strive one day to sport a spandex cycling suit of my own...
Just as soon as this body becomes skintight-presentable.
But I digress. I should mention that thanks to salt lake's little
winter2.0 blizzard today, my flight was quite late and I missed the
law preview day. That was a little disappointing but I did get a
chance to walk about campus and see the infamous UC Davis arboretum.
To be quite honest, it was kind of like seeing animals in a zoo; kind
of cool, but too many plaques and lights and fences taking away from
the sense of wilderness. As for the campus, it seemed a little sterile
and stuffy and highly trafficked.
Not for me.
But I will go to the reception tomorrow so I still qualify for the
$150 travel stipend. Why throw good money away?
In the meantime I'm going to try to figure out how to extricate an SD
card from a galvanized plastic container without any scissors and then
I need to rustle up some grub.
Ciao for now.
