Where I stayed
Johnny G's Couch
The Greyhound bus crowd is an interesting one. Although my ride was rather short this time it gave me enough time to get a feel for the kinds of people that use bus transportation around here. It was rather similar to the Labor Ready crowd, seemingly more diverse, but it held the same aire of stress, frustration, and weariness.
Bloomington is a great place and, as any of you who read my last blog well know by now, is one of my favorite places to visit. It almost as if someone took a big city and shoved it into a small town setting. Everything is clean and well kept with lots of sidewalks and people out and about quite a lot. However, with all it's charm, Bloomington is more or less in the middle of nowhere. It's about a 45 minute drive from the interstate on a highway with really nothing on it. Because of this I feel it's going to be even more difficult to find work than I thought, but I'll wander the streets for as long as I need tomorrow and hopefully find a few days work.
John will be playing at the Eastern Trombone Workshop in Washington D.C. next week, so if all goes well for me financially I'll get to go up there and spend some time with some Tech Alumni that live there and experience the local life. Also depending on how the plans pan out I could possibly get to stop for a day or so in Chicago along the way, and that's John's hometown. The possibilities that lay before me are exciting prospects, I can only hope that the means to follow these opportunities arise on my hunt tomorrow.
Either way I'll keep you all updated on what's going on here in Bloomington and get lots of pictures tomorrow when I'm on my job search. Wish me luck!
