So after living with roommates for over 10 years, I've finally got a place of my own in Arlington. It's a newly renovated efficiency in a medium-rise apartment complex down the street from where I used to live. I spent most of the past week moving stuff from the old place to the new. Living by myself is definitely worth the added cost. All I need is for the internet to be hooked up on Wednesday. In a way, the old tradition of baking a cake and going over to a new neighbors house has been replaced with the graciousness of my philanthropic neighbors who have kindly let me connect to "linksys" or "dlink". I love you neighbor! The building itself is rather quiet (so far). I wonder if my watching Dark Knight with the volume on full blast Sunday morning was a rude awakening for anyone? hehe.
