the big move

Hmm.  Let’s see what has been going on in my life.

First off, I moved.  From the nice college town of Iowa City to an “adult” town of Coralville. 
But don’t be fooled it is all the same. 

Really this move just means that when I go out I can no longer walk downtown and now I have to take a taxi. 
Yeah I know… super boo. 

I don’t understand this whole “hey, let’s be adults and move out of Iowa City”…. The only perk to this new place is that there is a Mexican restaurant that has 3.50 margaritas in walking distance.
(Well, and that I love my roomies and the place is nicer than the average IC apartment)


We (steph, Kinsey, and TJ) spent a Sunday moving all of our junk up to the 3rd floor (which is the top floor… I thought that needed to be mentioned
and in case you needed a figure: we had 4 beds (box springs and everything), a HEAVY couch, a recliner, bookshelves, 2 desks, a TV, TV stand, coffee table, and numerous other “junk”

It should also be noted that unlike most people who move out of their apartment our parents/brothers/other random relatives/friends… did not help us.

And anyways (again)

We moved, we survived. Our first meal was pizza … it was all so very awesome.
I get unpacked… finally empty my car (well, I still have a couple pairs of random jeans and a laundry basket full of books… but that’s just technicality)

And then…. Wait for it…. Wait for it

I got a job in DC!

Well, technically it is an internship… but still it is in DC!

I put in my two weeks’ notice at work and am now in the process of trying to find a place on non-sketchy craigslist that I can move into before the 23rd.

Aahahahahahaha…. (that’s my OMG, I have less than 2 weeks to find a place and re-move)
