listening to the new emery right now…it’s ok

i got my apartment finally…I’m not going to say I’m disappointed…but the old adage “you get what you pay for” always holds true. I don’t mind that it’s small…don’t mind the fact that there’s no overhead light in my room…don’t really mind that all the appliances are old…but i do mind that the bedroom isn’t big enough for my computer (I don’t think). i have a king size waterbed and I finally get to use it after sleeping on dorm beds for 6 years…but i think it’s pretty much gonna fill up my room and not leave room for my big desk. most people just say “so?” but it is a bother to me.

this morning i moved a big load to the apt, then I went to the mall when it opened and went to the apple store. i signed up for the apple credit card and bought a 20 gig ipod and iskin. I don’t have money for it at the moment, but I can’t handle packing and moving without books or music stimulating my brain. so I did the apple credit deal and get 90 days with 0% financing, and I’ll have plenty of money well before my 90 days are up. I am definitely not an advocate of buying on credit without the money to pay for it, and detest the thought of paying interest on anything…but I figured i’d bend the rules a little bit here since there’s no interest involved.

after work i kept myself awake long enough to go to wal-mart and get a light bulb for my big lamp for my bedroom (since it has no light). I kept remembering things i needed and ended up spending like an hour in walmart. most of that time was spent wandering around looking for air fresheners. i finally asked a lady with bad teeth. they were in the grocery section, of all places. apparently all the home sanitation type things are. how odd. i felt really out of place buying home goods. i bought a black shower curtain/liner with black metal hangy things. I thoroughly enjoyed hanging that up. I have no idea why. I also bought a cheap crappy frame to put my big casablanca poster in. i am not sure how to affix it to the wall though.

i have to have renter’s insurance before setting up my waterbed. need to figure that out. i need renter’s insurance anyway cause i have too much expensive stuff to just lose it all.

then i fell asleep for 3 hours on the living room floor. i was really tired.

work is ok, if a bit boring

hrm it’s time to start a new book but i believe i’ve already moved them all. that presents a problem. i’m quite bothered by that actually.

  1. My renters insurance is through State Farm and it’s a great deal.
