I moved a bunch of my stuff today. Doesn't my living room look empty? I've been selling a good amount on eBay and Craiglist, and boxed up the rest. I should be out of here this week sometime.
This move is both sad and relieving at the same time. Sad because I've enjoyed my independence, and it's been fun to explore my own style of decorating a house. Relieving because trying to make it on your own is very stressful and expensive. Even having a roommate doesn't really ease that feeling of having to figure everything out on your own. If/when I'm making a decent salary someday, I'll try it again, but for now it's time to regroup.
I am looking forward to spending more time with my parents though. It's been hard to get out to visit them these past few years with gas prices going sky high. Why does everything always come back to money? Whatever happened to building your own hut in the jungle and just living there? No landlord, no utility bills. That was the life!
