Apartment Life

I have to apologize, dear reader, for my lack of output lately. It was all just bad timing. First, I decided to update every other week. I’m still trying to find a good balance in frequency of updating – not as much as a twitter feed and a bit more often than Haley’s Comet.

Secondly, I got sick. And if you think I was actually sick enough to warrant your sympathy, step back. I’m in full realization that I’m a man, and I completely shut down when I get a mere common cold. My recovery for even the smallest throat tickle always involves unplugging everything in the house that uses electricity, then lying alone in bed in my favorite hoodie, whimpering into the silence until my disease passes. When I get the strength to move, I walk to the sink and drink three gallons of tap water, than wait until I have to pee.

Thirdly, I was ushered off by my work place to attend a training seminar. I wasn’t allowed to use my phone (and my covert phone time was taken up by trying to beat my fiance’s high score in Minion Rush – priorities).

Leaving me here. At least a few weeks from my last post. Well here I am, dear reader – I’m back from the dead and ready to tell you that I am… surviving.

I shouldn’t be so melodramatic. By that, I mean the honeymoon phase of living on my own is starting to wear off. It’s getting harder and harder to become enthralled by the little things (like owning my own set of keys, or having a tiny mailbox with my name on it) when bills start to roll in and things start breaking. I am convinced that not a single closet in my apartment closes right – which makes me wonder whether or not I have been opening doors wrong my whole life.

Speaking of flaky blogging, Ben Parks updated his piece this week with a rundown of his daily routine. I shouldn’t be so hard on him. Necessarily, when he has the time to update, you know it must be somehow important. Inspired by a peer, I have decided to do the same.

For your amusement, here are some shots of my pad:
