I’ve finally found an apartment I am going to move to! It about double the size of my current one and I’ll finally have a kitchen I can sit in. And most important of all, I will have a bedroom. No more having to share bedroom/kitchen/living room in the same room, finally some much needed space!
That also means I can start decorate the new apartment, those three years I’ve lived in my current one has felt like no one has really lived here.
I have had nothing on my walls, nothing in my windows, it has been very barren. Mostly because I took this apartment to settle down and move right away, things didn’t go like planed and I was stuck for three years. But now I can live! And it is going to show, I’m looking around for furniture and videogames posters to frame and hang on my walls. It is going to be so much better.
I’ll have access to the new apartment in February, so I’m really looking forward to that. Now I need to save all money I can, it’s not cheap moving. With all the costs that usually arise with moving, like transferring my internet provider to the new address and stuff like that. I’ve already packed down a bunch on games and stuff, no need for it to be up right now. Since I know I won’t have time to play them and I like to be well prepared. Even it it is three months in advance, I don’t want to deal with eventual stressfulness that can appear at that time. So I want things to be ready, I’m going to pack more in the coming weeks. And throw away old junk I don’t want to have anymore.
So I’m looking forward to this, for many reasons. One and the most important for me is space right now, I feel claustrophobic in my current apartment. And another reason is now it will be easier to have friends over. This is going to be great, at least I hope it will be.
Time really does fly when you are free. Soon my three and a half weeks of vacation will be over, I start working again on Wednesday. It’s been pretty nice not having to go up so early and I’ve had as couple of late nights and I didn’t realize how much had missed this. But alas all things must come to an end, and I’m somewhat looking forward to starting working again. Mostly because I’ll get out of the apartment more than I have under my vacation. I have gotten out quite a bit in the first week of vacation, buy then I’ve mostly stayed home and have been taking it easy and lazy.
It was nice being lazy for once.
I’m still searching for a new apartment, I have a few I’ve show interest in so I hope the will pick me to check them out. Then I’ll just have to hope I get one of them. I really want to move now, I want a bigger apartment so I can rearrange my stuff better.
I want a kitchen I can sit and eat in, I want a real bedroom so I don’t have to have everything in the living room as things are now. And hopefully later people can stay over if they want, and if I’ll let them off course. ;)
In looking forward to actually hang some posters/paintings up, right now I have nothing on the walls. Mostly so I don’t have to fix anything when I leave the current apartment. I really want my hobby and life to show where I live, right now there is nothing of that. I like games, I like cartoons and I want that to show. If people don’t like it can handle it that is their problem not mine, I’m not ashamed of what I like.
And if I do meet a special someone, they have to accept this part of me too.
I’m hoping to get some other furnishers then I finally move to, some more shelves for the games and hobbies. I hope my economy will let me start retro collecting soon, but before that can happen I need the older consoles first. Well I don’t really need them first, but I want to have them first do I can start playing as soon as I get some games, but that is for another post. I’m hoping I’ll be able to see Ant-man in about two weeks, when it has finally premiered here in Sweden.
Other than focusing on work and looking for a new place to live, the coming months will be filled of games for me, so at least I’ll have that. And if I’ll be moving hopefully it will be done in the coming thee months, and then there will be no money left for anything else. Moving is expensive, especially when you end up with double rent.
But it’s only for a month or so, just have to hold out. Things will be better later.
All in all I’ve had a great vacation starting home and taking it easy, next year I might be ready for some more action. Hopefully I’m in better shape next year to, hope I can start going to the gym again soon. Everything depends on the economy, but at least I haven’t had any soda for a week now, yes it’s a big deal actually. And I’ve only eaten soon candy that I’ve had at home, I have not bought anything new. So now I want to get in form, I really want to regain the weight I had 15 years ago.
Things are finally coming together at my new home. They put in the new plastic carpets today, or as they say the new “floor”. So I can finally start putting up my stuff, that feels great! Will finally feel like a home, one that I like very much. The apartment is smaller, but I like it. It somehow feels freer, it could be because of all the bad stuff I’ve left behind. But I think I can start a life where I can be more happy, I hope so at least. I don’t want to be chained to the bad stuff that has happened in the past, since I’ve let go of those things I hope I can heal.
Well enough of that shit now, I thought I’d post a few pictures of my new place. Nothing much, but I just wanted to share some of it with those who care. The kitchen is tiny, but there is room for two to sit there at least. That’s good enough for me. And while I’ll have to have my bed in the living room too, it’s not that bad. I really enjoy this place, it is calm and it feels like I got away from the shit at the old place. So yeah, smaller apartment but bigger happiness and feel more secure. Fuck yeah!
Finally somebody with some free wifi to lend me! My first time online since Thursday night, I can’t say I’ve missed it all that much.
Moving everything on Friday May 4th, went without a hich. It didn’t take much more than 2 hours tops. So that feelt really great, a shame that I must back to the old apartment for cleaning… But that a little less than two weeks away, so I don’t have to think about it right now.
So far I really like it in the new apartment, the first night I sleept as a baby. Best sleep I’ve had in months, and first time in a very long time I feelt really good.
Sadly I can decorate or put up anything right now, because the owners of the building are coming Wednesday and putting in a new floors in my apartment. So I just have the necesary stuff. But after that, I’ll but up pictures and stuff. :)
I really want to thank all of my friends who helped me with my moving, without you it wouldn’t have been possible. So thank you all so kindly! I apriciate it more than you think.

Yeah, I sure do hope I get all the parts! I’m going to Ikea today, I think it’s the first time since I was little I’m actually going there… I’ve been wanting some new stuff for my new life and my new apartment, so I’m hoping I’ll find something there. I’m going there with two wonderful friends from work, so we are going to have a blast. At least a new kitchen table, they weren’t very expensive there. We’ll just have to see what I find, but I think I’ll find some good stuff.
It’s getting closer and closer, for my move to the new apartment. I’m looking forward to it, I really don’t like where I live now. So it’s going to be very relaxing to be able to move away from here. Hopefully it’s one of those things that will help me feel good again, and not as depressed or sick. I would very much be able to feel that I’m healthy, something I think I haven’t felt in years.
Then again I might never have been healthy or felt good in my life, but that’s why I’m hoping that starting a new life will help. Leave the past that torments me so much, behind me.
Well enough of the doom and gloom now. I’ve got that out of my system for now, now I gotta get ready. I’m leaving in about an hour, so I’ll see if I post back later tonight with my catch of the day. Take care everyone!
Oh right! And after this trip is over for the day, we’ve been invited to another one of my close work friends for dinner. So that it going to be fun too, I’ve never really done stuff like this before. Going out with people that is. Only the ones I’ve known for years, so it feel pretty good actually.
