It's that time again. Time to move on. Not from blogging. I'm too stubborn to stop. I figure if everyone is going to give it up, I'm going to stick around until they come back or the blog world evolves again and there's a new crowd. There's only so much you can say in twitter and facebook statuses. And with the plethora of recent twitter outages I'm getting to that "I'm over it" phase with twitter. I've been regularly deleting people who post too many updates or whose updates consistently irk me. I know, I'm a twitter brat. I used to be the blog bully. On twitter I let people be themselves, minus me as a follower.
That is so not the point of this post. Wow traditional meaning of mindspacing, it's been a while, how are you? ANYWAY. As you know this summer I've been on the road quite a bit. Between West Palm Beach, Charlotte, Atlanta (about 5-6 weeks total), Mississippi, and Brunswick, GA I feel like I've been in a near constant state of packing and unpacking-- some major, some minor but always a hassle. I don't like packing!!!! It was really horrid back in college when I was going home for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Spring Break & Summer. I would take most or all of my wardrobe sometimes. Outrageous. And yet nothing compared to this summer! I packed all of that packing into 3 months! And now I'm moving.
But guess what? I'm moving into grad housing that will cost me $1 more for almost 3xs the space (from a 280sqft studio to a 708sqft 1 bedroom) and include water, sewer, CABLE AND INTERNET!! My current apartment includes none of that! So I'm really excited. But I have/had no one to keep me company while I pack (I'm mostly done now) or move. Most of my classmates are out of town until the weekend and I'll be done moving by Saturday morning at the latest. I'm most excited about (other than FREE CABLE AND INTERNET!!!) more counter space in the kitchen, more cabinet space in the bathroom, a reasonable place to put all my clothes, a place to entertain!!! and just generally space to spread out. If you have some low-cost decorating tips, leave them in the comments!
Josh Ozersky (whoever that is) once said, “When I was born, I was anonymous, and I aim not to die in that position.” Ditto, dude. And so I have resigned myself to dealing with the small annoyances of the day because I know they're only for the moment. I also know the quicker I accomplish something, the quicker I can move on to the things I really want to do. (Sometimes that's still not enough to get me motivated.) Just know this for certain: when I finally make that move out of anonymity, even if just partially, I won't be doing this packing crap for myself anymore!!!
