You guys, sorry for not posting anything this week, and to be fair, this is also not going to be a normal length post. We are in the midst of moving to a new apartment. It’s a little bigger, a little further and a little outside of our budget than the current place, but still the same zip code and more importantly a lotta nicer.
Moving in Australia turned out to be a new level kinda headache as most of the places are unfurnished and you have to sign up for new electricity, water, hot water, internet instead of carrying over the old ones. I now understand why moving is one of the most stressful events in a person’s life. Let me tell you, I was not my happy self this past week. But now we are done, phew! Well, almost done, after a week of packing, living with bare essential, paying extra for this and that, and finally the last leg, the unpacking of many boxes.
Speaking of the boxes, I got the task to label all of it. And I wrote things like “royal princess stuff”, “porcelain from the Ming dynasty”, “this is where the magic lives”, “Pandora box”, “5 happy kittens” and “Stormtrooper getting cozy with Budha inside the blanket” on it. That was the only time I had some sort of fun during this moving to a new apartment saga, Unfortunately, I couldn’t see the movers’ faces as I had to go to work that day.
I just spent the rest of my salary on a bookcase, towel hanger, and some pretty candles in IKEA today, which means I will be staying in every day until the next payday. The silver lining is more time to write here. But that’s only if I muster enough mental strength to do it, instead of eating my way through winter/daily instant noodle dinner/zero account balance depression.
I will share the new apartment’s pictures first, after I share the old place’s pictures first as I promised some time ago. Ta for now! Thanks for reading.
