Dear so and so...

Dear So and So...

Dear Single Lady ,

here is to you and your recently earned degree!
I am SO SO happy for you! (and proud of you)
I still remember the time when you graduated school and decided what to study and where to move and so on.
And I remember the day, when you moved to your university town and we met and watched a hockey game.
Good times! :)
It seems like it was yesterday and yet we both have come such a long way since then.
Congrats again!

Dear so and so...

Dear So and So...

Dear former landlady,

calling me and demanding(!) me to hand over the key because the place "is rented out again and there needs stuff to be done", even though I  paid for the place til next Friday was so bold, I didn't realize how bold it was until I got off the phone.

Dear former landlady,

today when you involuntarily admitted that the mold problem stems from wet walls and not from how often I let fresh air in, I felt satisfaction and anger at the same time.
And some sadness because you will most likely get away with that...

sick of this crap
Dear employee at the local department store,

the store is open til 8 pm.
When I get there at 7:50 pm, I would like to be treated as a valued customer.
You walking away every time I approach you to inquire where a certain item could be found is not suggesting that my business is appreciated.
Trust me, I'd take it elsewhere if there was another store of your kind in my town...Luckily your coworker was more keen to do her job.

dissatisfied customer
Dear new place,


still happy!

Dear so and so...

Dear So and So...

Dear Mom, dear brother and dear friend,

thank you all SO much for helping me with my move.
Thanks to the three of you everything went smooth and we were done in a reasonable time.

REALLY grateful!
Dear friend,

sorry for making you drive me all the way to my old place to get an empty box.

I felt really stupid...

Dear former neighbors,

it's been a week and guess what:
I am NOT missing you at all.

good riddance
Dear new neighbors,

so far y'all seem nice.

Dear laundromat,

see you never again!

living in a house with a washing machine now
Dear new place,

I LOVE you!
I love that there is no carpet in here, the walls are dry, I love the workspace in my kitchen, my very own bathroom ( no more shared toilets *yuck*) and I love the huuuuge balcony!

totally happy!
Dear exams,

can you be over yet?

not looking forward to three exams within the next two weeks
Dear grocery store right across the street at my old place,

you are the only thing I really miss.

having to walk further now...
Dear empty boxes,

can you move into the storage room by yourself please?
I don't feel like carrying you down one flight of stairs, across the courtyard, and down another flight of stairs..

already exhausted
Dear single lady

I am looking forward to seeing you soon!

now that I live in a better place with dry walls and without mold you can leave me alone, right?

done with you!

Ten on Tuesday

1. eat chocolate covered grasshoppers or this freaky squid thing?
The chocolate covered grasshoppers. While I really like seafood I think it is cruel to eat living animals.
I am not sure if it's dead or not. If it was definitely dead I think I would eat it.
2. never see another movie or never watch TV again?
Never watch TV again. I don't watch that much TV anyway.
3. be a superhero with a lame power or a supervillain with an awesome power?
A superhero with a lame power. That would still be "better" than the average people...
4. eat only salty snacks for the rest of you life, or only sweet snacks?
Only salty I think. There is one point when I had too much sugar, and then I can't stand it anymore for quite a while. Does not happen with salty snacks though.
5. never read another book or never hear another song?
Really tough because I love books. But there is so much other stuff to read but nothing to substitute music. So I guess it would be the book which had to go..
6. be a whale carcass remover or a sewer inspector?
The whale thing. Rotting meat does not sound as disgusting as wading through other people's sh*t...
7. have no electricity or no running water?
The water. There are so many things that run on electricity that I don't want to miss.
8. be a dog or a cat?
I think I would prefer the cat. Don;t know why, just a feeling.
Maybe because they are really independent, while the dog always wants to please his master.
9. always be hot or always be cold?
Cold. Because I can always put on more clothes but at some point I stripped down to my skin and then I can't get any relieve anymore.
10. be forced to watch all 3 High School Musicals on an endless loop, or the Twilight movies?
That's really tough.
I thing I'd prefer Twilight because they are so complex and there are more than the HSM movies which will make it a tad less boring I think..

//edit: I just realized the wrong title...seems like I am a bit stressed...

It's done

My move is done.
I still have to unpack several boxes but everything went pretty smooth thanks to an awesome friend and my family.
I will write a longer post about the whole move and all that happened (because of course there HAD something to go wrong) later.
I am really happy with my new place and it is a real improvement compared to where I lived before.
And I am online again, I was reconnected with the world not even 48 hours after the move. Impressive!

Packing up your household all by yourself and preparing for a move while studying for exams is REALLY exhausting.
The past days it seems like I am running nonstop.
For example, last night I studied til 1:30 am, then I went to bed. I got up around 7 am, went to school, met a friend there and studied for 6 hours straight. Then I went back home where I am packing boxes since I got here with just one break in which I went to the grocery store where I got a frozen dinner, which is in the oven right now.
Then I went to the hardware store to get more boxes.
I've been there that often the past weeks, I don't even have to pay attention on the way anymore, I kind of walk on autopilot.
I have finish packing tonight, and do some reading before I am allowed to sleep.
I need to get the packing done tonight because I go to school to study tomorrow and then I finally get to pick up my keys around 6.
By the time I get home I don't want to have to pack more boxes that's why I need to get done with most boxes tonight.

I have to say I am not impressed with the fact that I get the keys not even 24 hours before I move in, but there is nothing I can do about it...
