My Life in Atlanta: Week One

Big changes in the life of Sarah this week. Allow me to recap:

On Monday I started a paid internship at

in Lawrenceville, Ga.

Lawrenceville, GA

where I write blog posts and Facebook status updates for different clients. Sounds like something I’d be into right? Um, yeah.

I’m staying in Decatur with my friend Jessica a.k.a. Lady J

until I can find my own place. I am in love with several things around her apartment. I like to call these things: Reasons why Jessica is Awesome.

Reason #1

Reason #2

This one is the wallpaper on my phone, I liked it so much.

Reason #3

Mexican wrestler

And those are just a few.

Here is the view from Jessica’s front door

Decatur, Georgia

The neighborhood is so safe, you can leave your door open (open, not unlocked) all day long.

My schedule is pretty sweet, I work from 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and I’m off on Wednesdays. This Wednesday I decided to go for a walk around downtown Decatur and check out some of the cool shops. After getting lost for a while, I finally found the Blue Elephant Book Shop where I bought

Mary Karr

[Book review soon to come.]

Those people who know me know that I had to check out the local record store immediately. So I meandered over to Decatur CD on West Ponce De Leon Ave

where I was actually pretty disappointed because there wasn’t much in the way of used records. Everything was mostly new and cost around $25-26.

Georgia, vinyl
My heaven is analog.

I like David Byrne just as much as the next person, but I can’t justify paying $25.98 for an album that I could easily find used for a few bucks. Such is the plight of the record collector.

They did have a stellar CD collection, though. Hence the name, I guess.

I am looking forward to this weekend, though. My kickass friend Penny is talking me on a tour/pub crawl through Little 5 Points and East Atlanta where there is a store called Criminal Records. Sounds awesome, right? I can’t wait.
