Okay, so in two days I will have lived in my new apartment for a week.
Best. Thing. Ever.
My older brother is finally talking to me. I exist to him.
The former roommate? Pffft. More immature than I really believed possible. She won't look in my direction or acknowledge that I am alive, let alone exist.
Oh well. I deleted her off my facebook, blocking her due to the rather ignorant comments she continued to post and have people discuss publicly. I really don't need that kind of crap, and I don't need her in my life if she's going to be THAT sort of person.
I am significantly happier with my new place. I'm within a much shorter walking distance to work, about fifteen minutes if I really take my time and enjoy the hill. Takes me longer to get home, as I have to journey all the way back up that hill... I'm not going to complain, as I have done it when living with my older brother. There is a lot that I need to finish doing in the apartment, but that is what I am using Tuesday and Wednesday for. I work tonight, so I really don't feel like making an effort today to get things done around here.
The new place definitely has some quirks... Somebody took the light bulb out of the stove exhaust hood, one of the cupboard tops is coming away from the wall, there are no drawers, the kitchen cold water tap opens and closes the opposite way of a normal one...
But I love it.
It's warm, extremely well-lit by the two huge windows, and the bathroom is surprisingly spacious for a bachelor. I don't have a bedroom, but I am in the process of installing some curtains... They will hang from my ceiling to separate my bed from the rest of my living area. Got them in colors that I love, and I hope to get them hanging up tomorrow. As well as to get a curtain installed over my other window to help cut down on some of the excess light for in the mornings... I had to sleep with my hoody on and hood up over my eyes this morning to cut down on the light.
I'm not complaining.
I have fallen in love with this place, and I would not trade it for the world.
