How's It Going?: New Apartment Edition

Illustration for article titled How's It Going?: New Apartment Edition

Hello from my new apartment. I’m back after a week and a half long vacation. But our daily open thread never takes a day off. Come on in.


I say I was on vacation, but 9 out of those 10 days were spent moving, unpacking, setting stuff up, dealing with buying items during a pandemic, and a lot of moving around. I only really spent about 2 nights and a day playing games and relaxing.

Anyway, I’m excited about our new place! It has two bedrooms, a big kitchen, a nice patio, and a wood-burning fireplace. I now have my own office, which I tweeted about earlier this week. Having a dedicated space to work is wonderful. If I want to get away from work I just leave my office and have a whole apartment that isn’t my job. Before my office was spread across the living room, which was connected to the kitchen and dining room, so it was hard to escape work. But now I have a door I can close behind me when I’m done working and that might seem like a small thing, but mentally it is incredibly useful.

I’ll probably have some more updates on the new place in the future!

How’s it going? Anyone move recently? Moving during a pandemic sure is wild! Also happy to be back after a weekend away. Did you miss me?

Me and my GF moved into a 2BR townhouse last November, which turned out to be a critical decision since she’s been on WFH for months (and will be for the foreseeable future) so the spare bedroom/office has been a godsend. We still have some stuff to sort out, but it’s come together pretty well so far.

We kind of need that room to do triple-duty as a second TV room, guest bedroom and office, so we bought a pullout couch/loveseat that was supposed to be delivered yesterday, but the movers decided they needed a third guy to get it up the stairs, so they are coming back next week. We’ll get there eventually. Not like we’re expecting guests anytime soon.
