FINALLY nice weather! Sorry again for my absence - the last few days have been a little crazy. Over the weekend I got a call from the leasing office at my old apartment building, letting me know that if I could have everything out by the 18th (yesterday) they would move the new tenants in early and pro-rate my rent for the last part of May. Awesome - except that I had really planned on the whole getting my stuff/mad cleaning rampage but since I was out of town over the weekend, and commencement was on Monday, this left me one day to finish everything. So basically, Ben and I were at the Emerson apartment ALL DAY on Tuesday, packing the remenants, cleaning, the fridge, scrubbing the shower, pulling nails out of the wall etc. It was a loooonnng day.. but we got it all done and I even found some little gems in the moving process:
... such as this Circle me Bert poster I made four years ago when I was living in the Bay Area. NO idea how this thing survived 2 moves, but it's nostalgic enough that I had to take a picture of it before purging it for good.
After we finished the moving ordeal, we had barely enough time to run home, change, and meet my sister and a couple friends at Chatterbox Pub. I haven't performed in literally years, but recently two of my friends from school talked me into coming to playing open mic night. I am really pretty terrible at guitar - I can play just well enough to accompany myself, and I feel like a total dork next to my friends, who play really well, but it's still a ton of fun.
Pulling the final nail... goodbye little apartment! We had some awesome times, and I will miss you tons but it's time to move on to the next chapter.
