First big change of 2010: new digs!

I'm moving this next weekend! This has been in the works for about a month now, but I kinda forgot to mention it. Nothing bad happened at my current place, I just got offered a good deal that would have been stupid to pass up.

The lowdown: my school adviser, who is from Taiwan, is leaving for sabbatical in Taiwan for the spring and summer. He just bought a townhouse and would like someone to watch it while he's gone for eight months. So he offered for me to live there... rent will be $125 less than what I'm paying now, so there's where I couldn't pass it up. Mama is b-r-o-k-e and needs all the help she can get!

I'm sad to leave my current place... I like my apartment and I love living with international students (I live in University housing where mostly international students live, with the occasional culture-hungry American like me, lol). I've met some cool people here from all over the world, including my BF. But like I said, the break on rent is something I need. And it will be nice to live by myself. My current roomie is fine and all, but I love living alone. Once you get past a certain age (30, ahem...), roommate living gets less and less appealing.

Have I started organizing and packing? No. Did I utilize the huge chunk of open time I had all weekend to pack?? Of course not. That's not my style. I rock the procrastination, y'all! And I seriously hate moving. I hate it. About as much as I hate celery, and I loathe that nasty veggie!

So tonight after work and after my Tae Bo workout (I heart Billy!) I will start the painful process of packing and organizing my stuff... accompanied by rockin' tunes, of course!

  1. Yay for your new place, Miss Jessi, but boo for us not being semi-neighbors anymore. I guess we never really took advantage of that anyway. :)

    Packing is the worst, I feel your pain girl! But think how happy you'll be when it's all done!!
