Move-In Weekend

17 Aug

This past weekend was move-in weekend!! yayyy! Even though I still haven’t spent the night there yet.

Yesterday, I headed over to my place after driving home from work and packing up a whole bunch of my shit from boyfriend’s. I think I’ve figured out how I want my bedroom to be set up, and I can’t wait for all the stuff my mom bought on overstock to get here.

Out of the two hours that I was in my place last night, I think only 45 minutes was actually spent DOING SOMETHING. The rest of the time was 1) me franticallythrowing my clothes off because I had just carried a huge suitcase, a duffel bag and 3 boxes up 2 flights of stairs in 100 degree weather 2) lying on the floor naked, begging mother nature to just skip to November because I can’t take it anymore (caveat: I’m already comfy enough to be nudie in new digs! But honestly, it doesn’t take much) and 3) letting it really sink in that I have my own place. It was great.

So now, I have to upack my stuff, find places for all my trinkets and figure out where the hell to put on my books, but such is life. And knowing me, none of that will probably get done until next weekend.


The Walkthrough

12 Aug

Yesterday, I saw my apartment. And I loved it. I’d been imagining how I would put things together in the floor plan that I had printed, but I could finally see it.

I’ll post pics as soon as I dig out my camera, but trust me when I say it was awesome. It’s not huge, but it’s not tiny like my room in my old place was and it’s all mine.

My feelings got the best of me yesterday and when I thought about everything that was happening, I started to cry . It was extremely overwhelming to think of all of my new responsibilities, and how far away my mommy is. But I know I can do this! And I am SO excited to start my journey.

I get the keys tomorrow after work. I’ll be moving in on Saturday. Let’s go!
