ceitfianna: (running towards a happy ending)
I've been having a wonderfully lazy Saturday in my new place after a week of various errands and getting familiar with Boston. Yesterday, I got an email from the library temp agency and there's a possible job for me. If it works out, the schedule would be weird but doable as a reference librarian. Friday night, I went to the Public Market for a wonderful meet up with [personal profile] genarti, Jothra and Sandry. I loved how quickly it all came together and to talk, as much as possible with the live music but it was great. The Public Market happened to be having an open house that night and I'll definitely be going back there.

My apartment's really coming together and in my unpacking I've discovered that I have so many notecards. I realized this is a great way to share my new address and send people mail, if you'd like a card, comment.

There have been a few bumps, I think I need a stool for my new bed which I bought at a thrift store before I moved. Its a beautiful antique bed and I love it, but its very high up. Another issue is that my hall light went out and as always in a new place, there's figuring out changing it. So I'm renting in a place that also has condos so condo association and landlord who both went, not our job. So I need to take care of that, I was going to do it today but somehow I did something and my ankle's been hurting, so today I've been resting. Also I had a true headache dealing with a bank as I had to set something up for rent and its mind boggling how difficult it can be to move money from one place to another.

At the moment, I'm trying to do some writing for the Porn Battle. As often happens, the fic I'm writing so far has no sign of any kind of ship but I'm pretty happy with it.

Later I'm hoping to do some catching up on my book reviews on Goodreads which stopped around the holidays and then with the moving haven't picked up. I like having them done as its a good way to keep up with what I'm reading and be part of the book world.

This is the living room of my new place where I'm currently camping out. My stuff which I was hoping would arrive tomorrow is instead appearing at the end of the week. As often happens with movers, there's a delivery window and at first it seemed like I would be at the front end, am now at the back. Weirdly I think that the internet will arrive before the stuff.

But that's okay as today I felt like I was a porter going on a major mountain trek as I brought supplies up like an aero-bed, my electric kettle, bathroom stuff and a few kitchen things. There's still more in my car but I feel prepared. I've also started to explore the neighborhoods around me and I think I've landed in a really good place.

My cold's still around and that plus my asthma has left me worn out but good. Now to start the long process of changing my address with everyone that I can think of.

Its so strange to be doing something this hopeful with the mess of everything around but I know if I'd delayed too long on moving, I'd get stuck. Now I'm here and can keep moving forward and learn how to be most effective here.
