...sucks. I feel exactly like this cartoon... I've got a creepy roommate who always wants to offer help. I tend to move more things when he's out of the house. I'm antisocial when he's involved... trust me when I say that the creeper-vibe is legit. [Photo plucked from this website.]
Moving is exciting for a lot of reasons (new opportunities, new people, new place), but the process (cleaning, packing, loading the car, etc) is stressful. I'd like to say that I'm never going to move again, but in reality I'll probably move several more times in my life. The next move takes me to Maryland, which I've mentioned here before. I'm excited to live near my sister (in the same house) again. I hope that I can find a good job and a social network. It's all very odd. I'm glad the next few days will be mild in temperature because I've had to give back my beautiful AC unit. I've been so spoiled the last few weeks. Anyway, I have a few brave friends coming to help me load up my little Rav4. The more things I take down stairs the more freaked out I become about what's going to fit and what may be left on the side of the road with a free sign. Hopefully it will all fit. Hopefully. Sigh.

Thursday, July 8, 2010
So, I've had a productive summer so far. I'm working on my thesis, reading a few short story collections (I recommend Wells Tower's Everything Ravaged, Everything Burned), and planning on moving to Maryland at the end of the month. I guess it's time for another big life change. I like visiting the D.C. area, but will I like living there for a year--who knows. Anyway... just wanted to post something real quick since obviously I haven't had this blog on my mind lately. Sad. Hope everyone's doing well!
