… I’m not quite moved in. I have my bed, couch and kitchen stuff. And clothes. I have nothing resembling a table. Right now I’m computing and eating, well, I haven’t eaten in yet, but starting at breakfast tomorrow I’m eating at my highly truncated counter. Next weekend I’ll try to draft someone to help me move some tabley things.

I don’t have very much stuff. On one hand it’s gratifying, it’s good to not be cluttered. But this place does look empty. It’ll help once I have some horizontal surfaces. Maybe some stuff to put on the walls. But I never did at my old place in the Yards (wall stuff). Maybe I’m just a materialist minimalist, restricting my ownership to a few select, important things. Maybe I’m just a lazy slob. I dunno.

The couch is pretty sweet. It’s about the only thing I ever used my Target discount on. Other than food/drink for lunch/break. And I bought a new mattress out of sheer sloth. I just didn’t want to move the one at Mom’s house. I guess it’s the lazy slob option. Oh well.

I don’t even have my microwave up yet! (see aforementioned dearth of horizontality).

This would have been a lot easier if there was more public parking. And no hail. Still. It’s progress. That’s good stuff there.

That is all.

For the non-Portlanders in the crowd, it snowed today. At sea level. Yes, on March 28th.

This is why scientists don’t use the term “global warming” any more.

Now begins the last day of my second childhood.

Dramatic enough for ya? Okay, I’m moving out of Mom’s place tomorrow.

I move the 29th of March.

(no, that’s not a hint for a moving party).


Unfitness and responsibility

March 13th, 2008 No comments

I’ve been slacking. Hardcore. I didn’t do anything fitness related last week. I barely dieted, okay, you can’t really say I dieted. I ate the same stuff I’d been eating during the day, then I drank.

I really needed the break.

This week I’ve been to the gym twice (I think I’m only gonna try going 3x wk for a while) but I still didn’t go to krav. I blame that on my broken tooth (did I mention I broke a tooth? With a TOOTHPICK!). But that pain is subsiding, which probably isn’t a good sign, but next week I’m back to whoop ass class.

I’ve been meeting new people. Making new friends. This is teh awsumzors.

And I checked out two apartments today. One was a $600 studio in Old Town, which I should have pounced on. I called back an hour or two later and someone had already applied for it. The other was a $700 one bedroom on upper west Burnside. It’s more than I had budgeted but I should be okay. I won’t need my bike or gym lockers and if I can get a good wifi signal, I won’t need cable. I might fold and get the Dish (cable is FUCKING EXPENSIVE!) after a while. I dunno.

I have another viewing appointment downtown tomorrow and yet another place uptown is spoda call me to come look at a vacancy. And Monday I’m calling yet another place, also downtown. All of these are at least a bit cheaper than the one bedroom.

I’m looking forward to be an adult again.
