moving is never fun

POST #    463

in one week, i have the closing on my apartment where i get one very large check and hand over "ownership" of my apartment to someone else. i have to pack up some stuff for the mover by friday and pack up some other stuff for my parents to take. a lot of stuff will also be thrown out, like all those weekend newspapers that i planned on reading. i think the biggest pain might be changing all the addresses for my mail.

since i'm moving back home/into my aunt's apartment, i'll be saving on living expenses, which is good. hopefully i don't blow it all on unnecessary purchases, that would be bad.

actually, i've moved several times too. mostly while in college. they used to have forms at the post office that was postage paid, but i went yesterday and they didn't have them anymore.

dude, dont go to the post office. why would you? when you could just go to the site and press "print"?

yesterday i was counting up how many places i've called "home" (for a secret project) and I think there's been 11.

well, they used to have free postage!! and i don't have any stamps. i guess i'll just mail it in. now, where are those office supplies.

yesterday, i was thinking of taking pictures of my various new york residences.

including country houses and college dorm/apts, i've lived in 10 places.
