Question: "Where is Slade right now?" (May 07 - May 08)

Answer:

Present - 7 May: in Indiana, PA, doing college. (Note: 3-7 May is Finals Week.)

7-10 May: in Pittsburgh, at my parents' house. THIS MEANS WE SHOULD DO SOMETHING BEFORE I LEAVE THE COUNTRY.

11-13 May: in NYC, at the Nebula Awards.

13-16 May: in NYC, hanging out with Anna.

16 May - 6 June: in Larnaca, Cyprus, doing archaelogy and sight-seeing.

7 June - 18 July: in Pittsburgh. AGAIN, WE SHOULD TOTALLY DO SOMETHING. I LOVE YOU, I NEED YOU, LET'S GO FOR TAIWANESE.

19 July - 6 August: in Lewes, DE, learning to sail the 18th-century tall ship Kalmar Nyckel.

7 August - sometime between 3 and 10 September: in Pittsburgh. HAVE I DECLARED MY INTENTIONS FULLY ENOUGH ALREADY? YES, I DO MEAN YOU. I AM ABROAD FIVE OUT OF THE NEXT SEVEN MONTHS; LET'S SPEND THE REMAINING TWO NOT CRYING AT NIGHT BECAUSE WE'RE ALL ALONE IN THE WORLD. INSTEAD, LET'S GO MINI-GOLFING. AND YES, I WILL BE HAVING MY BIRTHDAY STATESIDE. PLAN FOR FESTIVITIES.

Sometime between 3 and 10 September - sometime in December (or January): in Jordan, learning Arabic. Please note that there is a possibility that I will not be in the States for Christmas break, but that such a development cannot stop me sending you presents at the very least. More information when I have it.

14 January - sometime in May: probably in Indiana, PA, doing the college again. And GRADUATING "JGHDFHDJFHDJFDJ!!!11!one!! (which means...)

Sometime in May: in Pittsburgh, moved out of my parents' house. Expect Massive Extravagent Gradumacation Par-tay! W00t! (in addition to/in combination with Ultra-Fabulous Housewarming Party. It's gonna be great, people.)

And that is the upcoming year, as it looks right now. And I am not even joking about the bits that say "let's do something." The world is young, I love you guys, Indiana is the devil, let's all go dancing.
