    A(nother) new pad for Arti


    14 hours of driving over 2 days later...

    I have arrived! Got 'moved' into my apartment today (still no word on the moving company which will arrive before on/before sunday). "Moved in" includes a few potted plants, suitcase, air mattress, and sleeping bag.

    A trip to target later:
    $150 (not too bad) bagged in 14 plastic and 2 paper bags seriously? This ringer was an idiot.

    Some pics of the pad:




    a little desk nook and porch


    hmmm big enough for 2? 3?!


    a closet big enough to be an extra bedroom


    closet in the den



    i woke up one morning and i stepped out of bed | had to get a bike, had to paint it red
    Of all the treasures I have, itís the memories that are the most precious.

    ooo. Nice pad. Has it own washer and dryer. Nice. Just think of all the clutter that's soon going to be accumulated (if you're anything like me.) Have fun in Colorado. Think of me when you ski

    thanks! its nice but actually way too much space. I'm on a short lease, and will probably move to a 1br or something later, but its what they had available right now of the (few) places I had a chance to take a look at when I came on my interview visit.

    Don't worry, you'll soon appreciate having a bit of extra room. Nice place!

    It's going to be weird sleeping on an air mattress in an empty apartment in a new place in a new state.

    Looks like a great pad, Arti! I like the little nook -- perfect for a laptop and comfy chair.

    nice place... massive closet... I think you can hide a few bodies in there
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Nice! Don't clutter it up w/ furniture. You'll need lots of space for all your bikes.

    Welcome to CO, arti!

    Take it from someone who has moved a lot (4 long distance moves in just the last 6 years), you'll accumulate stuff. Stuff is kind of like a gas... it'll expand to fill whatever space it's in. Or conversely, you'll keep adding stuff to fill the volume you have in your house. Even in 6 months! I wouldn't plan on downsizing TOO much!

    "Another new pad"? What's that make? Seven?

    Looks like it has great possibilities. Glad you made it, and congrats on your bold move.

    yeah, some intense vacuuming went down in here! Now, I know I'm OCD but this is ridiculous.

    thanks! Yup, I'm already plotting budgets for bikes and furniture to fill the space

    there is NO SUCH THING as way too much space!

    It's a really nice place, big and bright and well-lit. - and your own laundry facilities - sweet! The walk-in closet alone is worth driving 14 hrs for.

    enjoy the new digs, and good luck on the new gig!

    Nice! Id love to spend the rest of my days in a sweet little place like that
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve
