Moving Day

Saturday, April 15, 2006
I usually try not to talk too much about myself in this space, and I definitely try not to swear on here. However, I'm about to do both so if that offends either of my readers now would be the time to skip this post.

I hate moving. I fucking hate it. Packing is even worse, but that's like saying that I dislike Hilter more than Stalin. I mean, neither is really good, you know?

However, this is where my few friends come in. My true friends. The good ones. The ones that I'll always be friends with and would go to the ends of the earth for. These are the friends who will stay out till 3 in the morning partying, but show up at 10 the next day to help move and never, EVER complain... not even once. You guys are rock stars.

My family is also awesome. Awesome for a lot of different reasons, too many to describe here. One day I wish I could be more like them.

What's interesting about this move is I'm putting stuff in short term storage (roughly 4 months) and long term storage (2+ years). I find it fascinating (and liberating) to realize that despite how much material shit I've collected over the years, I can put HALF of it away to where I don't need to access it. Hell, some of it I haven't touched in years anyway.

But I'm down-sizing my life in more ways than one. I think I'll be happier being less tied down by the crap I've accumulated. I'm sure looking forward to finding out...

I gotta admit, I'm a little hurt you didn't ask us to help you move! I would have asked you...that's what friends do. ;-) Seriously, though, we would have helped. Your cell # still works, right?
