Wow, it’s not often I get to tick off a line item from my Big List o’ Life’s Worries just like that, but I signed a lease on a new apartment today. I’ll have a new address on September 1, and will probably be begging my friends for help with packing and carrying some time before that. In the meantime, if anyone would like to own some nice old chairs or a stereo or an extra computer, they should let me know: since the new apartment is about half the size of my current place (but more importantly is not falling apart), I think I’m going to be taking this opportunity to divest myself of some of my excess possessions.
