o.O This video actually makes Tucson look all metropolitan and sexy:

Downtown Tucson Partnership Promo from John Sears on Vimeo.



I also would never have believed that the Ronstadt Transit Station (read: downtown bus depot) could ever be portrayed in a graceful and attractive light, but I guess I was mistaken. xD

I went swimming with Matt again today! Apparently I can join the gym under his membership for a super low rate (as he has a grandfathered account there), and so we're going to do it! We hope to go back to the gym on Friday--it seems like getting out and exercising is really helping. :) Not making me totally better, of course (I mean, I was in pretty decent shape when I first started getting sick), but at least making me feel a little bit better overall. Or it could be a false correlation, but I hope not.

Send me good vibes! <3

That's arguable, honestly. xD Though the video is very well-done.

Thank you!! *hugs!* :) We're supposed to go swimming today...unfortunately I've been too sick so far, but we'll see about later, heh.

As I said, the video is maybe a *little* misleading...Downtown Tucson is kind of dumpy-ish, but if you ever get the chance or inclination to visit Tucson you totally should. :D Maybe if you visit at a time when I'm feeling a little better we could take a trip down to Mexico <3

Swimming really is a great way to exercise! Incidentally, my father told me just the other day that he's been to Tucson and he loved it. XD

*sends you good vibes* ♥

Thank you!! <3

Haha, that's cool that he's been here. :D It's a nice place, I have no huge complaints, though a little...boring? Plus the political situation in this state in general is a total mess, but that's another issue. *_* I really do like this city though, I am glad to have the opportunity to still live here. The main reason why I'm amused is the video actually succeeds in making Downtown Tucson look glamorous (which, if you ask MOST people who live here, that will only get them to roll eyes at you; it's generally seen as a kind of a dump/no man's land/hobo central/not really the place you want to go hang out? lol) It seems like they're trying to change its image and revitalize though, so media like this might actually be a pretty good first step. :)

Wow, that video was really successful in creating a cool image for Tucson - one that I'm not sure I actually believe, but when I eventually visit you in Tucson, I at least have a little more to look forward to than your presence (though of course your presence far eclipses any coolness in Tucson).

I'm really glad to hear that swimming has been helping! Swimming is awesome. I miss swimming actually, I should get me a membership... when I move out lol (don't want to bother explaining it to my family). I hope it continues to help! Sending many good vibes your way, as always ♥

Thank you for good vibes!! :D <3

And well, to be fair, nobody I know really goes to Downtown Tucson that much if they can help it..(and uhm, there are reasons for that...). I used to go for rock climbing but that's about it, and I haven't done that in years, so as far as I know it might have revitalized a little bit. When Andres and I went and did stuff at city hall it mostly seemed kind of dead and stuff, and that's how I think of it being during the day. It mostly just makes me lol that they're like LOL LOOK AT OUR THREE SHINY BUILDINGS. The ONLY three buildings taller than 10 stories, lol. xD

Unfortunately I haven't been able to swim yet today cause of sickly but I have high hopes for later. :) Also, you totally should! I don't see what there is to explain...unless your house randomly has a pool at it, "I want to swim, okay!" is probably all the explanation required. xD
