Transplanted Life
Monday, July 14, 2003
Well, I wasn't going to start this until I actually got settled in out west, but I've got some free time right now, so what the heck? The movers won't be putting my life on a truck until Wednesday, and right now I can't stand to look at another box, so I might as well get an early start.

I'm basically doing this so my friends can keep an eye on what I'm up to after I move to Seattle on Saturday. It's all happened insanely quickly, but isn't that usually the way? No job for two months, and then, bang, here's one that pays half again what your last one did, but you've got to relocate and start in just a couple weeks. A scary thought, but kind of exciting, too. Maybe I wouldn't have jumped if a bunch of things hadn't come together - my mother just got settled in Florida last month, the lease on my apartment was due to expire at the end of August anyway, and it's not like I have to sell a cross-country move to a girlfriend. So, really, what's stopping me? Nothing.

I'm just edgy right now, though - I've got too much free time, I'm waiting for a call from the apartment broker (hopefully I won't have to live out of a suitcase for too long), so I can't just go to a movie or something - I'm not going to be the guy whose cell rings during the movie, or turns it off and misses an important call.

And there it is now... More later.
