I haven’t posted in almost a week because I’ve been so crazy busy with the move and getting ready for school. So last Saturday, it happened!! I packed up all my stuff, said a prayer, and drove myself to Austin at 5am to move into an apartment with my boyfriend, Jacob. We’ve been planning since November to move, and it almost came down to the last minute, since we both start school next Monday. We found the cutest little place in North Austin and now get to call it home :) The first couple of days were stressful, unpacking and trying to make everything feel like our own. Add the tons of cleaning that had to be done to the place and we were exhausted. We of course had to have a typical moving day meal, so we had pizza for dinner :) The next day we went to my aunt’s house in Austin where I had left some things when moving out of my dorm a few weeks ago. We piled everything into the car and got to unpack and carry everything up the stairs to our apartment. Yay -.- I had forgotten how much stuff I had. Seriously! So many craft supplies, school supplies, beauty products, cleaning supplies, decorations, bows, books, everything!! That being said, a lot of it was useful, like the cleaning supplies, power cords and extensions, a mini fan and lamp, mirrors, and extra toiletries. But then again there’s things like my dorm mini-fridge that I don’t know we’ll find a use for in the apartment. The thing I am most grateful for though, is plenty of kitchen supplies. From pots and pans to plates and silverware, cups and knives, mixing bowls, baking sheets, a toaster, blender, hand mixer, and cutting boards…. Thanks to the generosity of my family, we have a fully-stocked kitchen! My family has really been so amazing and supportive of my move, and I couldn’t be happier.
So with all that background of my last few days, here are today’s letters:
Dear Jacob: I love you so much. Nothing makes me happier than waking up knowing you’ll be with me every morning. I’ve loved every moment of being here with you so far, even though every moment wasn’t perfect (clogged drains, gross stoves, sketchy-sounding dishwashers, and a toilet that sounds like a ghost at 3am. I know, it freaked me out too) No, everything here is not perfect, and it probably never will be. What matters is that it’s ours :) Dear ACC: Going up to register is literally as miserable as the DPS. I’m horribly confused and just pray everything works out.
