***Secret FSR Fender guitars? Yes, they exist, and they're right here

it's on!

Earlier today (around 11am) I got my Brighthouse internet service turned on. The installers knew what they were doing and got the job done right. Very, very cool. I am very happy to be back online again at my own place.

I immediately noticed the transfer speeds are faster and more stable compared to Verizon DSL. Big perk considering what I do for a living, obviously. 🙂

Roughly half my stuff is still in unpacked state. I was going to do the rest today but said fuggit and slept instead because I was just too tired.

Concerning the new place, here's the scoop on that. A lot of this is going to sound seriously dopey but it's a big deal to me:

Having an actual bedroom is awesome.

It's hard to believe now that I got by as long as I did with a tiny 286-square-foot studio apartment. But yeah, I did. Now I'm in a place with 525 square feet and having a real bedroom is absolutely wonderful.

Having lots of closet space is super-awesome.

The other apartment had two very tiny closets. This place has three, all large. Two of them are walk-in. In addition to that I also have the utility room where the washer/dryer goes for extra space plus a crawl space besides that.

The washer/dryer stuff will be coming later on. I can't afford it right now but I'll save up a few pennies and finally be able to do laundry at my own place. And I can't even begin to tell you how cool that is.

It is extremely unlikely I ever would have been able to afford this at the stomping grounds.

A place like the one I have now would easily run for $1200 a month anywhere in Connecticut. In Florida it's significantly less for the same stuff.

. . .

I feel like Mr. Big Guy right now because of my new digs. It's a really awesome feeling. Truly. I mean, sheesh... it took me SO LONG to get this far, but I went the distance (literally) and made it happen.

Hey, maybe I'm a late bloomer, but I'm really happy with what I have.

Better late than never I suppose. 🙂
