Wow, time passes quick when you’re moving…
June 3, 2008
Hi there! A couple days turned into a week and I’m still overwhelmed with moving. I’m going to forgo a proper blog post about the camping trip to French Creek State Park. There are pictures in a Flickr set here that illustrate how awesome the weekend was. At one point we met 2 other bicycle tourists on their way to North Carolina too. It was a lot of biking and lots of fun. Most recommended for any locals–camp in French Creek. It’s gorgeous.
So yeah, I’ve “officially” moved out of West Philadelphia and into deep South Philadelphia and this was done purely by bicycle. The last bits were made the morning of May 31st, the day my lease was up. If you move a queen size bed, bed-frame, dining room table, and box of misc. stuff at 6am, you’d be surprised at how much respect you garner from others on the street. We were the talk of the town…

Now that the move is complete, my non-work hours are sucked into unpacking, destashing, decluttering, and making sense of material possessions. Yuck. Needless to say, the local thrift store (Second Mile on 45th street) and other charity drop-boxes have gotten a ton of great stuff that I don’t want anymore. I hope that others find use from my clothes, shoes, and superfluous kitchen-ware.
Edited to add: Oh and I totally got my septum pierced yesterday and I love it! Granted, I’ve been sneezing a whole bunch since and it’s a tad sore, but that’s ok. Sometimes I wonder if I’ll ever get my ears pierced or if my 1 piercing at a time will reside solely on my nose (I used to have my nostril pierced, for those who aren’t in the know…)
