Thanks for letting me get that out right away. So a lot of you guys know by now that I'm moving. Yes, for the record, I was currently 25 years old and living at home with my Dad. Given the nature of this website, I can easily see how stereotypical assumptions might be made; living in parents basement playing video games all day, no social life, etc. Well life is crazy sometimes, and you wind up back at home. My best friend just bought a house, and this is my ticket out.
This sudden independence on myself makes me realize how much crap I need to buy; shampoo, toilet paper, toothpaste, food, and all the other fun things you need to live. I've already paid my rent for the month of September, so I'm kind of on a deadline. It's been kind of stressful, trying to juggle a 40 hours at work each week, and trying to gather up and go through all my stuff to decide what I need to move, and what I need to throw away. I just want to make some sigs and play Nintendogs, but I just don't have the time.
There are going to be many, many great things to come out of this move for me, and only a couple downfalls. By popular demand (who am I kidding, nobody's reading this), I will list them for you.
1. No more listening to my Dad and his girlfriend arguing over stupid s**t.
2. I'll have a lot more room to relax (my current bedroom is the size of a closet, my new one is pimp)
3. I just bought a killer 5.1 Dolby Digital home theater system to compliment my widescreen HDTV, so my gaming and movie watching will be better than ever. (note: living at home is a good way to save up money)
4. I'll be getting my own PC, so no more fighting over usage, and it will more competant for my needs (I will finally be able to edit video on my PC, so I can get back into stop-motion animation).
5. The house is between my parents house and my work, making it the perfect location. Seriously, I couldn't ask for a better location, and it's a nice neighborhood to boot.
6. An obvious positive is simply not living with your parents. I'll be more inclined to have people come over and stay a while, if you catch my drift.
1. Ok, I'll be sharing a house with my best friend, his girlfriend, and his girlfriend's twin sisters. STOP-RIGHT-THERE! If you're like every other friend I've told this to, then you're all perverted and thinking the same thing. This basically means a lot of girls, which can be a bad thing when it comes to getting ready for work. You need in the shower, but they're putting on makeup and being women, which can get annoying. We're all going to have to work around each other, so it's going to take some getting used to.
2. MONEY$$, Seriously, living at home has it's benefits. My rent was free, the food was paid for and supplied, and I was able to save my money from all my hard work. That's cool and all, but not as cool as being independent, so it's a good trade.
3. I need a bed! I'm going to sleep on a matress on the floor until I can find the time to shop for a bed. I'm going to get a very nice futon, so I can have people over to watch movies in my room, while sitting comfortably. I need a good futon though, not one where you can feel the metal frame through the matress pad.
4. Adjusting- It's going to be hard to adjust at first, especially since I'm officially moving tomorrow (Wednesday Aug 31), and I have to work at the same time. By officially moving, I mean hauling a matress over, and all my clothes. Everything else has already been moved.
So if you actually bothered to read this, you are a good friend. I wish I could be around more to chat, but I will be soon enough. This was everything I wanted to say in my posts, but didn't want to spam up GameSpot with my Stressin' bout Movin'. Thanks for reading, and I look forward to being back.
