The New Apartment

Saturday, I signed the lease for my new apartment. In about three weeks I’ll be moved in. There’s a lot to do before then. There’s a lot to pack but there’s probably even more that I’ll just throw away.
The best part is that I can get away from my downstairs neighbor. Everyday she gets a little crazier. When she first moved in, I thought she was very friendly, and she didn’t have much money so I did a few nice things for her. Every time I did something nice she took advantage of my kindness.  Then I realized the nice woman I’d originally met was not so nice. She complains about everything and never sees any of it as her fault even though she brings a lot of it on herself. I’d give examples but I don’t feel like typing all night long: I’m just glad to be moving away from her. She’s a leech.
With my new apartment, I’ll be buying some new furniture. I know I need a new couch. And since I’ll have a dining room, I probably should get a table. A person in town has a couch that converts into a bed that looks nice. I plan to go and check it out. They only want $25, so I want to see it before I buy it. It will go in the guest bedroom/office. I’m really looking forward to this move.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe
