    by , 08-14-2014 at 06:34 AM
    Long blog post since I didn't log very much content for a lot of days. I'm at the festival now, so my next blog here will be post-festival.

    We woke up, tidied our hostel room and checked out. The receptionist called us a taxi to the train station since our phones still weren't really working. We got to the station and bought tickets to Örebro, where we would switch trains to go north. Once there, we got to the platform we needed to be at ...

    We woke up at noon. Understandable since we were awake until 3-something and exhausted from lack of sleep on the planes. We showered and set out for the bus at 3 pm. I tried texting for tickets, but it either came back in error or didn't send. This resulted in another free bus ride. We seriously need to find currency exchange. Fortunately though, the trains were next. We took the commuter rail back to Stockholm Central and then looked for the train that ...
  3. What has happened to manners?

I was talking with his mom the day before and she was saying how he is struggling with bills and money and car issues. He works full time and is not a slacker but ...

    Figured I'd share this here so anyone that wants can live vicariously through me. I'm here with my friend so mentions of 'we' is not me being schizophrenic! No matter what Dragon says...

    Saturday, 2 August into Sunday, 3 August 2014

    We got to MSP airport at 5:30 pm CST and our flight was to depart at 7:30. We got through the checkpoints no problem and were at our gate at about 6. Boarding started at 6:50. During boarding, a storm cropped up near the airport. ...

    As I posted in the SWTOR forums, my father passed away Saturday 7/26. I spent the better part of the week in Pittsburgh for his funeral. Nothing is quite as jarring as lowering the casket that contains your father into the ground.
