I’m not especially homesick for Minneapolis, but there are things that I was sad to leave behind.
I finished my contract at MGI today, which means that I finally have time to play games other than the one I’m working on.
My home is invaded.
I don’t want to turn the machine on and see a starving, dirty, neglected symbol of my inability to take care of another living thing. Even when that thing isn’t actually alive.
I think I finally understand why people buy houses.
I spent an hour stumbling around in the dark, using the backlight on my iPod as a lamp while I rummaged around in the closet and tried to find my friggin’ flashlight. At least I knew where my hand-cranked radio was.
A few things I plan on keeping in mind the next time I invite people into my home.
Sudden warmth and a heavy snowpack lead to lots of water everywhere: lying in puddles on the curb, flowing down gutters, dripping from my goddamn kitchen ceiling.
No, really, this is the last thing I’ll write about the whole moving-to-a-new-apartment thing. But first: pictures!
I signed a lease on a new apartment today.
