Tomorrow is the big day!

Tomorrow my life starts over. I am moving into a new place so I can be on my own. It's going to be a long, hard road emotionally, but I have to keep my future in focus. I want a lot out of life and he simply can't provide me with what I want. I never asked for much, but even the minimal that I did request he couldn't even meet me halfway.

So here I am. When I update this blog again, I should be in the new place. I won't have electricity until Monday so I'll likely sleep over at Dominique's house tomorrow night if it's too cold.

The plan for tomorrow is my sister is going to meet me at my house once Joe leaves for work. We're going to throw what I don't have packed in boxes and bags, bring everything over to the place, and then she's going to drop me off at the Wal-Mart on Tchoupitoulas. I have so much to get that it's ridiculous, but a lot I can't get just because I won't have power on. It sucks, but what can I do? Such is life.

One more week!

Time really does fly when you're not thinking about it. My official move-in day is January 26th, a week from today! My friend's boyfriend and her friend are supposed to be helping me move. I am actually quite excited that the place is so convenient to a few places to eat--there's a French country cafe, a late night grill, a bar spot with really good and different sandwiches, and like five other restaurants. Within a block and a half! I am excited.

Tonight I have to start reading my Chemistry book--I read the syllabus for that class and she said she wants us to read each chapter before class. I know this is a class I am going to struggle in, so it wouldn't hurt to get a head start. I'm a nerd... :P

First post of the new year!

I can't believe I haven't posted this year yet. Much is going on and I haven't really had time, to be honest.

I paid the deposit already on the apartment on St. Charles. It's $625 for a studio setup with water included, but it's a pretty decent size for me. Perfect, really. It's only going to be a 4-month lease, but that's actually okay for me. It gives me at least a place to crash during school until I can get something else. I can't wait to move in!

I feel like I am one of those people who does better just living by themselves. People are fun to have over for sure, but at the end of the day I love being by myself. I love decorating a place by myself (input is welcome, but I have my own style), I like cooking for myself, and I like not having to clean up behind anyone. Hell, who doesn't? I would really like to be able to live alone at least until I graduate. Maybe next year in January I can move closer to UNO (it's actually cheaper around there that here in Uptown).

In other news, school starts a week from Tuesday! I can hardly wait. I am going to get my books on Wednesday when I'm off. :)
