Day 3

Day 3 into my “new life” looks mostly like a lot of boxes piled up in the dining room and TLC re-runs.

However the Ikea furniture is almost all built! Victory!


Things I don’t understand about guys #547

My boyfriend and I were packing up his place last week. We had a limited amount of time and everything was still a mess. In the middle of all this he pulls out a gigantic box of tangled cables for tvs, game systems, computers, and who knows what! He would hand them to me after de-tangling to be carefully rolled and taped.

Me: Shouldn’t we just pack things and worry about cable organization later?

R: It’s better to be organized before moving! Oooo this is a nice cable! This is a $50 cable!

Me: You have cables for products that don’t even exist any more!

R: <talking to himself> Oh! I forgot I had this one!

The next day I’m joking around with my friends about R’s cable obsession when the guys chime in with their support.

“Oh yeah I have TWO boxes of miscellaneous cables at home.”

The guys are actually trying to out cable each other!

“Hmmm I’ll have to check our your boyfriend’s cables! Sounds like he has a nice collection!”

Yesterday a box from Amazon arrived and R grabbed at it excitedly. I’m not even kidding, it was a new cable.

Every two years

28 01 2010

My life always seems to change drastically at least every two years and it’s time! Friday is my last day at work and I don’t have another job lined up. I’m hoping to pursue a dream of teaching elementary school. It’s a pretty fresh dream though. No tarnish on it and that’s scary. I just moved in with my boyfriend (eek living with a boyfriend for the first time!). I may not be bored, but I’m slightly befuddled and excited.

For now I’ll post about anything and everything. Things on this blog might include my hobbies like baking and photography, my weird projects like gluing tiny jewels on a Gundam toy, my efforts to get healthy and lose weight, and my life as it continues to change and evolve.  Over time I assume I’ll split these up into separate blogs, or give up on certain subjects altogether.

For now let’s put on our metaphorical seat belts and enjoy the ride. Safety first!
