I ordered a dining table on Ebay for our dining nook. The house is now short one piece of furniture, mabye two..but those are just extras…not necessities…like a dining room table. Ikea does it right. Im not sure that this place does. It was also build your own furniture…and while it was a success in the end, im not sure the process was laid out in the best possible way. Let me show you why. Read the directions for the chairs..
Engrish at its finest.
And..now the process.
And the final result…with the first meal to christen it.
i really wish i had been documenting this better. I mean, this is the first place that Mick and I are living in, just the two of us. I imagine there will be many more to come, but this is the first. I have been just awful at documenting the transition…and i wish i had been better. The empty place, the uhaul, the boxes, the clutter, the finished product…would have made a cool sequence of shots. A good story. Ill use the excuse that I packed my camera. Its a lie, but im going to go with that.
Mick took some mobile uploads, so I will share those…for you people who cant wait to see the finished product. Im really excited about this place. Guestroom/office has both of our desks. I bought an Expedit desk from Ikea, and its all crafty and shit. Mick’s desk is filled with computer stuff and toys. The room is both of us…with a couch in the middle. The couch is a futon…which means we can have guests!!
Here we go so far! More to come for sure…especially when the place is done!
So right now i am torn between total excitement, sadness, and just being annoyed.
Excitement- Im moving to Oakland! Im super excited to get an awesome 2 bedroom place with Mick, and have a cozy lil life with SF being a destination, and no longer a way of life. Im excited for new adventures, and having my own space.
Sadness- its the end of an era for me and the BBH. I love my house. It made my SF life and my life in general what it is today. I got my job from a referral of a friend of the BBH. Most of my friends, when people ask how do you know them, my response is “They came with the house”. The sadness is there for sure
Packing and moving is just annoying. Yes, it is great to unpack and start fresh, but seriously, Im moving shit over all week, and cant enjoy the last evenings i have living in the city.
More updates and photos to come, as this next adventure in my life started yesterday when I went to pick up my keys.
I love this time of year. TAX TIME!!
Couldnt come at a better point in my life either. Im moving out. I need a security deposit, and rent. I need furniture, and dishes and all the other shit you need when you move out. Oh what? I need to clean the toilet? Oh, right I dont have a scrubbie thing, its at my other home….that kind of shit you have to buy. And it all adds up. So…Thanks Uncle Sam. Thanks Tax man.
But seriously.?? California might write me an IOU? what is that shit?
I swear. I know i havent written in a while, but I guess living the life that I have has been more important than writing about it.
1. Quit Smoking. Its been 5 days. Its a lot easier than it was last time, and I know i havent really been in a drunk bar situation yet, but so far so good.
2. Moving out of the BBH. This one is huge. Ive lived in my house for over 4 years now. Made some of my best friends through this house, and live with people I consider family. However, the time has come to move on, and evolve, and finally live with the man that I love. Just us. So come March 1, we will be out of the BBH, and some other awesome person (TBD) will move in and life will go on, and we will meet new people thru this new addition, and the BBH will continue to be my home away from home.
3. Got another hair cut. Eh, its short, cute and I thought I would share the news.
4.The Wunzees are kicking off. Ive sold 16 so far. Pretty cool huh? http://wunzees.etsy.com Have at it! Buy a gift! Make a request! 🙂
Thats it for now. Ill write more interesting stuff and more in depth introspection and shit like that later.
Posted in call me an artist, entertaining me isnt hard, its a celebration!, regular ol shit, relationship shit, self help, the important stuff
