I have a new roommate coming in on Saturday. I’m both nervous and excited. I’m nervous because I’m probably going to have to change a few of my living habits. I probably will have to close the door when I’m going to the bathroom. I’m probably going to keep the place a little bit cleaner. I also probably have to be a little more organized with things. It’s one thing to say you want to be organized, but it’s another thing to actually be organized.
But that pales in comparison to the extra cash that will be coming in. It will also be nice to have someone to talk to in the evening. I’ve probably been a little too reclusive at times at home. I don’t think it’s good that you rely on Netflix or other forms of entertainment for your at-home stimulation. My new roommate seems pretty cool. He played basketball in college and played professionally in Australia and Mexico. I think it we’ll have a lot to talk about.
It was probably good that I’ve gotten to know a few more of my neighbors. I waved to one as I was walking around this evening. That felt good. It’s good to know that you have a connection with someone who lives on the same property as you do. Hopefully I’ll get to know a few more of my neighbors, one that’s actually in my building. (I think one of them may actually be moving out?) I’ll have to be on the lookout for anyone else moving
The past few weeks have been pretty slow with regards to writing. Maybe it’s the summer or that I haven’t done anything interesting. Or maybe I just haven’t felt like sitting down and writing. I’ve had a few other things on my mind like getting my apartment prepared or getting things for work done.
I’ve also been a little sick the past few days. I really don’t like the act of being sick. I left work early on Monday. It kind of made me mad to stay couped up inside all day. (I mean I did finish Stranger Things, but it was still hard to lie on the couch all day.) I came home yesterday and just took a nap after work. It was nice to sleep for over an hour. I think that really helped. I still didn’t feel great today. I was a little tired, not too hungry, and didn’t have a ton of energy. I made it through the day, but I didn’t want to go for a run, so I just went out for a walk.
Man this has been a really boring blog update. I’m watching the Office right now. It’s nice to have a television, a lamp, and a coffee table. It’s starting to feel a little more like a home here. I guess that’s a good thing.
I’ve still got some updating to do in the bedroom. I’ll be getting a bed soon. I also still have to get some more blinds. That’s the thing about owning a home, always be updating.
