Big changes in the life of Sarah this week. Allow me to recap:
On Monday I started a paid internship at
in 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.
And those are just a few.
Here is the view from Jessica’s front door
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
[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.
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.
