The Life, Times, Thoughts, and Works of a Creative Young Man
[Life] Up and Down and All Around
Life has been weird lately. My motivation has been sorely lacking. When I'm not at work, I have a difficult time forcing myself to do anything productive. Heat seems to make me feel sluggish, and as I'm sure I don't need to tell you, it's been hot lately.

There's good news, though. I need an apartment by the 18th, as the one I'm in currently is too pricey for me to handle without a roommate (my brother's moving in with his girlfriend). And I finally found a good one this week. Only a bit smaller than my current one-bedroom, and it's just $390 + electric + internet. And my credit check was "squeaky clean", as the manager put it. :D So I'm going over tomorrow to pay the deposit and sign up and everything, and then in a few weeks, I move in!

Have to remember to talk to the Board of Water and Light, though. Get the address change arranged in advance. And I need to talk to Comcast about getting cable internet set up, as there's no ethernet ports in the apartments. Will I need a new modem? Probably. :P And I've gotta get packed. Should do it now, rather than waiting until the actual move-out day. That's what I did last move, and some of my stuff is still in the garbage bags.

Oh, also, I went over to my current apartment's housing office today, to see how much rent would be for this last half-month. And the guy I talked to told me that I was all set for the rest of my lease, and I didn't have to pay anything. So I effectively became $624 richer. Which is very nice; now I've got money for the apartment deposit and can go grab some groceries too.

So yeah, things have been lousy for a while, but they've been looking up lately. I'm still in kind of a weird headspace, though. Two more days off from work in a row, which is nice, but it'll be that much more :P when I finally do go back. Ah, well.

That's good that things are looking up. And yay on the apartment! I just hope that Jason and I have as much luck this next week looking for a place in Champaign/Urbana.

You wouldn't happen to be moving to Hull, would you? 'Cause that's where Charles and I are going.

Though, come to think, Hull costs a hella lot more than that. So I'm probably wrong. ;P

New apartment -- whew! I'm relieved and happy for you.

Speaking of weird headspace, when I saw "Board of Water and Light", my brain immediately conjured up this sort of Kahuna mystical surfing image...
