Life as we know it
Another crazy month, who would have thought actually working would take up such a big part of my life?
But as they say: work hard, play hard, and playing hard I have been. I went to three concerts this month…
First, grandson at Crocodile. It was my first time seeing him and going to this venue, he sounded great live, played an awesome set and the venue was amazing, one of my new favorite smaller venues for sure.
I also saw Glass Animals at WAMU Theater. Again, it was my first time seeing them live and first time at this venue. The venue was okay, not a lot to see but definitely big and accommodating as it’s part of Lumen Field where the Seahawks play. They were absolutely perfect, probably my favorite show post-COVID. In case you’ve been living under a rock, their song Heat Waves has been massively popular, #1 on Spotify for the last few months and I reckon will be getting even more streams as the northern hemisphere enters warmer weather. The set was amazing, production value was something else and I had so much fun dancing my ass off.
Finally, I saw John Mayer at Climate Pledge Arena. It was kind of a last-minute thing and listening to some chill music by a genuinely talented musician was just what I needed. We were sat quite far away but I didn’t mind, I was there just to listen and the jumbotron let us see him in all his glory.
Grant and I went to the Museum of History and Industry, MOHAI, for the first time. It’s one of those things we’ve been meaning to check out since we moved here but haven’t yet and we finally got around to it. It’s an awesome peek into local history and culture in Seattle, this city is so amazing. And it’s right on Lake Union, what’s not to enjoy?
We went to the U District for the Cherry Blossom Festival: when the cherry blossoms around the University of Washington campus are in full bloom and local shops and restaurants have cherry blossom-themed specials on. We got boba tea and walked to the quad which was packed, I had no idea it was so popular. It was so lovely seeing so many people experiencing the cherry blossoms before they’re gone next week.
I’ve taken on a dog-walking gig in my neighborhood and it’s a great way to explore even more on foot. I love not only living in Seattle but also living in Fremont!
