I apologize for not blogging as much as I would have liked. I have spent the last few days working, packing, cleaning, and saying my good-byes. That's because on New Years Eve 2009, I will officially move to New York City! I am so excited, although I am really sad to leave Annapolis. The good thing is that Annapolis is only a short and easy bus ride away.
Right now I am at my parents' house in Georgia (after driving 10.5+ hours yesterday by myself), and the Suburban is all loaded up, after much maneuvering. My sister and I (we are going to be roommates!) are headed north tomorrow, will spend the night in New Jersey, and move into the city first thing on the 31st. I am so excited! Unfortunately I need to head back to GA on the 3rd, and will house sit for a couple of weeks, so won't be back permanently in NYC until closer to the end of January. Still, I am really looking forward to New York!
Packing up all of my belongings has been no easy feat. Even with a large car my stuff unfortunately won't all fit. So I will have to ship some stuff, and is has made me realize that I am a *Hoarder*. Someone should probably nominate me for the show. I still have clothes from high school and college that I have no real intentions of wearing. The last few times I have moved I have just moved all of my belongings from one place to another (the downside of having a lot of closet space to myself). I will also keep shoes that hurt or don't fit just in case one day in the distant future I will have a need for them. One of my New Year's Resolutions will be: Always think Less is More. I need to be better about selling or donating items that I don't want or need, and think long and hard before making any new purchases. I'm such an impulse shopper, and I'm worried NYC with all of it's temptations will be too much! Here's to hoping for the best.
Typing on my mother's laptop is proving to be slightly irritating (it is a PC and I am a Mac girl myself) so I'm sorry for the lack of updates. The next few days will probably be difficult as well, but do not fret! I will have lots of free time as I hang out at my parents' house in January. I am a terrible plan ahead-her and I just have a jumble of clothes at their house, so we shall see what I come up with!
Happy New Year everyone!
