guess who is still around?! i had an intense first semester of grad school and oh my, am i glad this is behind me. when i got my grades a few days before christmas, i could not believe my eyes – i got an a in all 3 classes! wow! everyone who had to deal with me during the semester sure knows i had to work for these grades. does it feel good to have a 4.0 gpa? oh heck yeah! i hope i can keep it up in the upcoming term.
life has been busy and as one of my classes required me to blog regularly, i somehow did not feel the urge to blog for myself. i felt like i am spending so much time staring at electronic devices that there was not much to write about anyways.
i’m doing well. the holidays are behind me now and i had plenty of time to catch up on my sleep. my love and his family have been very, very good to me. sometimes i still struggle with having left the life behind me that i did – i had a job and income that allowed me to spend money on myself and my vices, i had my friends close, i had hobbies. let’s just be clear, i do not in any way regret my decision to come here but i did think it all would be easier.
anyways, it’s a new year and i plan on spending this with fewer looks back and more looks towards the future. life is treating me well and it will only get better.
have a great year folks! be happy, be safe, enjoy the people in your life. have a great 2013!! as for me, i plan on being around here more often

sometimes life is a little creepy-scary. for the past hours i had a song stuck in my head that i last heard at my grandma’s funeral and before that at my grandpa’s. i actually ended up singing it out loud because it was so loud in my head, taking up so much room. and for the last hours i wondered why that song, why today.
a few minutes ago it hit me. two years ago, around this time, my grandpa passed away. i still remember his smile, the way he talked, the tears in his eyes when we last met. it’s been two years…and i miss him. thanks for the song, i needed that!

oh what a day. my sofa was picked up. my chaise longue was picked up and my desk/office chair was picked up. if you followed my selling endeavours that means that i have exactly ZERO pieces of furniture left that i wanted to sell.
did i think i would actually get to this point? absolutely not! i was hoping for it of course, and i was doing my best to get there but i always had this grain of doubt left, this uncertainty if everything will work out.
so here i am, five days before handing over this apartment and i am officially furniture free!
