March: In like a lion, out like a slightly smaller lion.
What I got up to in March.
My March could be summed up in one concept: moving.
I moved into my apartment. I moved in all my stuff. I bought more stuff and moved that in too.
I unpacked all my boxes. I hung up some curtains. I hung up some art.
I rearranged the few items of furniture I actually have.
I bought a shelving unit for my kitchen and thought it was a great idea to carry it home on the el.
I went a month without internet because Comcast wouldn’t let me set anything up online. And then when I finally brought myself to call them I got suckered into paying ten dollars more for a cable package that includes Food Network and, as far as I can tell, nothing else anyone would want to watch. But, really, there is little else I’d want to watch anyways.
I’ve also spent over a month sitting on my floor because I still haven’t gotten around to buying anything to sit on.
Someday that will happen.
But it was fun going through boxes, seeing what I have and what I don’t and pondering what the hell I was thinking when I packed up my life. Like, you know, I’m sure there was a rational decision behind selling my DVD player and keeping my VCR…
I was happy to find that I kept my Snuggie.
And some special souvenirs from Thailand.
So at least I have the essentials.
And as for other things in my life…
I saw Book of Mormon! Finally. And I’m pretty sure I didn’t stop laughing the entire time.
I met up with my friend Priya, just in from a year on a working holiday visa in Australia, for vegan food at Chicago Diner (including a who would have guessed vegan carrot milkshake which may have changed my life), a long walk, an a mariachi opera.
I spent a day at my nephew’s birthday party.
And I went to Travel Massive. But didn’t take any photos.
