Justin and I spent the day today moving into the new apartment. I like it a lot. It was recently renovated and is very nice. It was originally intended to be sold as a condo, but for some reason or another it’s now an apartment.
To do the move Justin rented a truck from Zipcar and we then loaded all his stuff and what little I brought (boxes full of my stuff are in-transit) and, then, spent a long time in traffic.
It wasn’t that bad, but it was pretty stressful trying to get to the new place, unloading everything, then to IKEA to buy my loft bed frame, mattress, desk, chair, and bookshelf, along with silverware and other random kitchen and house stuff. Then, we had to get back to the apartment, unload everything, and drop the truck off at its parking spot before our time ran out (which costs a lot more money). We had to extend the rental 2-3 times, and still went over the allotted time (couldn’t extend again due to another person who had it scheduled). Traffic is terrible here, but we’ve established that before.
I know some of you are wondering what this apartment looks like. Never fear, I’ll take pictures when everything has been setup. That may be a few days. Right now, everything is a mess. I’m sitting next to the door to the apartment in my newly assembled chair from IKEA. I’m sitting by the door because that’s where I assembled the chair. From here I can see a fantastic mess. I like it, a lot. The chair, that is, not the mess.
