Ch Ch Changes
If I seem a bit invisible, it's because I am. I alluded recently to an upswing after a frankly shitty opening to the year: I'm preparing to move into the city. I've never actually lived in DC in all the years I've been working here. We're talking full-throttle city living, with street parking, sirens wailing, etc, but I'll be living in an old row house with lots of character - it's one of the ones above - and even have a patio/garden. I'm not buying it [good God, I cannot afford that], but the plan is to be there for at least 3 years. My current place is walled with boxes. Moving forces one to release material possessions - which should make the soul lighter, right? - but I still have too much. The amount of CD boxes alone is going to be absurd.
So if things get a bit silent for awhile, this is why. Rest assured, I cannot wait to get my normal life back, but it will take some time.
