“I give you this to take with you: Nothing remains as it was. If you know this, you can begin again, with pure joy in the uprooting.”
As most of you know, I’ve been staying in my friend’s basement this summer while I got a job and settled myself on the seacoast. From the beginning I’d planned to be out of the house by August 1st and as my move date got closer I wondered why I wasn’t getting more panicked about finding new digs. As long as I have a vehicle I never have to worry about a home.
I adore my friends, but it’s certainly time for me to be moving on. My friends want their house back and I want to be able to come and go freely without worrying about waking people up or not having a house key.
So, on Wednesday I’m moving back into the Jetta! I miss it a lot so I’m pretty excited, though I still need to join a gym so I can shower. I’m not going to be able to go all winter like last year, so I found an alternative. I put out an add on Craig’s List for eight people who want to find a super cheap apartment. Housing is expensive on the seacoast, but the bigger the house the cheaper rent gets. Within fifteen hours I had ten people who wanted to get a place by September 1st. Pretty cool people too; like bartenders, engineers, college grad students, and teachers. This could turn out really good or really bad. Stay tuned!
