I've been checking through Craig's List but I thought I'd try this too.
Seeking Room Downtown
I'm a old-souled 21 year old college student/full time worker person who, due to a roomate SNAFU, needs to find a new place to live by the end of this month. I'm hoping to move in next weekend somewhere. I have good credit, don't smoke, and am pretty easy to get along with (lurk on my LJ it's pretty accurate about me).
What I am looking for:
* A medium to large room, approx 10x10+, relatively clean.
* Located within a 15-20 minute commute of Capitol Hill, without a car. C Hill would be awesome, Central District, Belltown, Ballard, Fremont, U Dist? This should also be a place that a young female can feel OK walking to late at night.
* Roomates who don't care that I'll be using the space essentially to sleep and store my stuff.
* I go dancing at Goth clubs but tend to go out to party instead of having it at home.
* I would like to own a cat, but this is not neccessary.
* Internet would also be ideal.
* Being on the lease would be great too because I could use the renter's history.
* Monthly rent up to $450. Due to the short notice of all this I would have trouble putting first/last/deposit up front, but first/deposit I can probably swing and pay back the rest over the next couple months.
Leave comments or emails if you have some leads.

Anyone know when Wolfgang Puck's closed? It was my new favorite happy hour place and this morning I noticed the "space for lease" sign on the window.
So, I don't have a tennis partner, but that's ok. Does anyone know of any courts in town that have a CONCRETE WALL that I can practice against?
I'm selling my car. I've posted the details on craigslist: http://seattle.craigslist.org/car/28946432.html If you or anyone you know is interested give me a holler. JD
Aye.. So.. In need of someone to talk to.
Preferably someone 16-20 or so.
Older people tend to hate me.
Not that at the moment everyone else loves me, but thats kinda why i'm posting.
I need SOMEONE whom I can talk to.
Someone sane, maybe?
The weather is warming up and I'm trying to stave off the urge to add to my tattoo collection by indulging in something a little less permanent.
So, can anyone recommend a good and affordable henna-artist in the Seattle side of the water (read: not Bellevue or Kirkland)?
I'm currently on unemployment and thinking about going back to school. I was told that sometimes you can go to school, have it paid for and still collect unemployment. I've been browsing around the go2ui.com site and haven't really found any info.
Does anyone know if this is true? And if so, has anyone done it or know how to go about it?
Moderators, will you please tell us whether you consider this community an appropriate forum for "I'm so bored, I'm so lonely" posts? We've had at least five in the last two weeks (three, I believe, from the same individual) and I think I'm not the only one who considers these posts off-topic.
Thanks for your guidance.
Here is some food for thought. A human rights activist – Elaine Brown - visits WSU by request of the ASWSU to speak about race, gender, and class disparities in the United States. About a hundred people are in attendance. Lane Rawlins (the standing President of WSU) asks her – as she put it - what her problem was in coming to speak before the university. She said she didn’t have a problem. A day prior, national television anchor Peter Jennings speaks before an audience of over 12,000. He ridicules and debases the university and its guests. And the Murrow School of Communications hands him an award for it.
[Peter Jennings] truly is the torch-bearer of the Murrow tradition, said Alex Tan, Director of the Edward R. Murrow School of Communication [see Evergreen 4/14/04].
On Thursday, April 15th, in the CUB Auditorium, I had the pleasure of hearing the articulate and inspiring Elaine Brown. She focused on the continuing struggles and oppression of all people by a privileged few. We are talking about how Martin Luther King died for us, and we got a seat on the bus… …how can we talk about freedom and liberation when half the people in America are oppressed?
On Wednesday, April 14th, in a packed to capacity Beasley Stadium, I had the displeasure of hearing Peter Jennings, a rather affected and self-involved man.
Angie Dormin, a Doctoral Student of History at UI and a high school teacher in WA asked Mr. Jennings why the national media has passed over the middle America silent majority types. We know five boys that are in Iraq right now.. [One] young [man] called his mom because a bullet just whizzed by his head… [He had] joined the national guard so he could get a discount to come to the university. Mr. Jennings sidestepped the issue by pushing the responsibility of coverage to local media. When she pressed Jennings further, he replied indignantly can I go onto someone else… be fair now, there are a lot of people here.
A young Christina Ramento, a freshman at WSU, approached the microphone to ask the Mr. Jennings a question regarding media consolidation by large corporations (specifically that of Disney and Comcast). In her nervous state, she mistook Clear Channel for Comcast. Before she could finish her question, an exasperated Mr. Jennings turned his back to the crowd; then interrupted her. They told me that these WSU people were really smart… they said it wasn’t all about football you know. Nearly 12,000 people laughed in unison at this young woman for daring to ask a question.
What we have here is an institutional approach to academia ripe and infected with hypocrisy. It goes deeper than the dining center’s “fried-chicken” celebration of black history month, or the misplaced ads of recent Evergreen publication. What kind of administration awards a condescending Mr. Jennings in one breathe, and demeans the struggles of a human rights activist like Elaine Brown in the other? Peter Jennings observed President Rawlins’ good ol’ boy approach to life. It seems to me that this good ol’ boy approach has infected the very foundation of Washington State University.
I'm looking into UW's Grad program. Specifically the Fine Arts painting program. Has anyone heard anything about it? Does it have a reputation for being a good program?
Where in Seattle is Urban Comedy Café and how would one get tickets to see a certain person...?
