I'm alive and moved

Tags: , ,
Quick baby update. We got all my stuff moved on Saturday so I am currently living in the middle of a box jungle. The internet at the new apartment was finicky the past two days but appears to be working now. We shall see. Overall, I'm digging the new apartment except for the fact that the AC doesn't work over well so the bedrooms get a bit hot.

I've got work all day today so I know I won't accomplish much of anything. I don't go in until about 3:00 tomorrow afternoon but I'll have to do laundry in the morning. Hopefully I'll have a chance to get on AIM while working on the laundry. I'm hoping to get some unpacking done on Wednesday and then Thursday I have to go back to the old apartment to clean it and hand in the keys. I'm looking forward to a time when days off will actually mean a chance to relax and do nothing.

In other news, I finished the His Dark Materials trilogy. I definitely enjoyed it.

EDIT: Ganked from jdbracknell. Is funny.

Yeah, I kept trying to IM you yesterday and it appeared not to be working! Or mine wasn't receiving your messages if you replied.

Glad you're all there, and hopefully the settling in will go easily. Are there ceiling fans? Or can you get one in your room?

Yesterday when my class ended it was storming out so badly that I was unwilling to drive home. I ended up hanging around my empty classroom for about an hour. There was a computer in the classroom and I was on it trying to get on AIM using the non-download version. It logged me on but wouldn't let me see my own buddy list or give me messages from people so that was the nonworking AIM issues.

I have a floor fan. Last night with that aimed at my bed and the window open a crack to let in a bit of breeze from outside, I was fine. Right now I'm downstairs which is much cooler.

After trying for like an hour last night and another hour today, we have wireless working so I'm excited. Now that that essential is taken care of, I'll get to less important things like unpacking boxes of food and clothes.

Good luck with the unpacking! I loathe unpacking - I always have such good intentions, to chuck out everything I moved but don't really want - but after the first box, I tend to just start shoving things wherever they'll fit and resolve to sort it out later.....

Hopefully I'll get to the unpacking before too long. The past couple of days I've just been working, coming home, and collapsing with no energy left to unpack boxes. I'll get there.

Sorry, but I had to report you, you know. It's not my fault I've been living in a HOLE FOR THE LAST 16 YEARS, lol.

Besides, your fate has one out of three in common with Remus Lupin. ;)

Where did you move to? Are you in the same city? I've missed a lot lately. :D

Ironically I was just debating making a post containing spoilers for all the Star Wars movies, Citizen Kane, Sixth Sense, Soylent Green, and a bunch of other stuff. I guess I'll just have to make sure to use a cut.

I moved from an apartment in the on-campus graduate complex to an off-campus apartment with one of my friends. The rent will be a lot cheaper but it is unfurnished so I am blowing all the money I would save on things like a new bed and desk. It's all good, though.
