Well I’m happy to say my housing woes are nearing their closure. Yesterday I finished the first wave of moving (that is to say bringing in most of the bare essentials that can be moved in with an SUV and doesn’t require the furniture I’m going to need to find a pickup truck for. At the moment I’m just figuring out where everything is going to go an my biggest frustration is that I’m not seeing how my largest set of bookshelves are going to get up the stairs and pivot in the hallway but anyway… it’s a work in progress
So anyway I had my first night in my own bed in my own apartment for the first time in over three weeks. So far I am pleased. It’s a little noisier than the old place, but the bedroom is a bit more insulated sound wise than the rest of the apartment, so no big deal. Besides it’s more of a case of different sounds than more sounds so it should be fairly easy to get used to.
But other than figuring out where to put everything is going to go, I’m happy. The location is fantastic. Even though I haven’t lived in the U-District for over a decade it has been the center of my social life and entertainment since I’ve moved to Seattle a place where I spent most of my free time. Now I’m in the heart of it with other cool neighborhoods like Wallingford, Greenlake and Fremont really close by! To be quite frank I’m beginning to worry about gaining wait since what were previously half hour long bike rides are now walking distance. To spell it out the Dreaming, one of my favorite hangouts, is now a nine minute walk… and I can order food before I leave because Tokyo First, my favorite teriyaki place is right on the way!
