It’s the little things.

I’m sitting in my new apartment right now, my stuff strewn every which way, sweaty and tired. For the first time ever, I’m living alone. The space I’m sitting in right now is 100% mine and I can do what I want with it. This boggles my mind. I don’t know how to arrange my stuff; I’m missing crucial items such as a kitchen table and a microwave, but I figure I’ll accumulate these things in time.

Starting over is strange. Today I went to the grocery store and bought things I already had, things like aluminum foil and sandwich bags and olive oil and rice. It’s weird that I need to accumulate these things again. I have so much stuff I need to buy. I need trash cans and lamps and light bulbs to go in the lamps. I’ll have to purchase these things little by little, but eventually I’ll have what I need for this place. It’s just strange today, looking at my things, knowing that this place is mine.

In other new, this weekend I drove a U-Haul, drank beer from a can, attended a tattoo parlor birthday party, and got really, really sunburned. Not to mention I enjoyed an awesome dinner at my favorite Chinese place with a few friends of mine who helped me move. Liz, Gabe, and Josh, you guys rock. Things are good.

    I kind of feel bad that we dragged Gabe into working so much at the last second like that! But I’m glad that we were able to help. And I’m glad to see you’ve found an internet source for the interim. ;-)

    There’s this awesome feeling — I think — after you’ve lived alone for a bit, when you realize that you’re basically responsible for all of the little details.

  3. how exciting! :) it’s kind of fun to think that your place is yours all yours! enjoy it! and post pics for us, please. :)

  6. congrats on the independence!

  7. That’s got to be the strangest feeling. I’ve never lived ALONE alone before, and the idea of having a place completely to myself is kind of exciting. Here’s to awesome things to come for you! I can’t wait to see pictures of your place once you’ve decorated. I’m always interested in that kind of stuff.
