got news that I've got the apartment... which will mean I can move in in 4 days! crazy! i'm barely even packed yet. picking up some boxes tomorrow and going some mad crazy packing the next few days. I would love to get settled in by the end of the week and spend next weekend unpacking and finishing setting up. I will be getting rid of a lot of stuff this time, just got too much crap to lug around. I want my space to be a little more streamlined and filled with only things I LOVE. I love this image of this cozy background. I can imagine sitting curled up with a blanket and hot cocoa reading a book with Sushi sitting next to me.

moving out of my lovely Dilworth apartment of 2 years. I love the quirkiness of this old duplex, the rickety fireplace, and the gift shops and restaurants in this neighborhood. but I am also excited about having closet space again! here's looking back to 1400 Euclid Ave.

tuna nachos, grilled bbq pork and shrimp
Irene and I popped into Miyagi's yesterday because we were curious to try this new Korean-fusion restaurant that just popped up in NoDa. the owner is Korean but with training in American restaurants. the "tuna nachos" appetizer was out of this world and we ended up ordering TWO orders like that fatties we are! they were crispy, salty, spicy, everything you would want from an appetizer. unfortunately the plate only comes with 4 which is not enough. I want hundreds, like a bag of Doritos. the rest of the meal was good, but nothing special. I will definitely come back for those nachos again! I feel like I'm going to start waking up in my sleep panting for those damn nachos.

lots of upcoming changes.......hopefully all positive ones. I can say this: most of the time when I've been really nervous or scared of upcoming changes, they have almost always worked out for the better so I try to keep that in mind. moving into my own apartment soon. daunting but also exciting. I will be excited about: having some me time, a walk-in closet, walking around the house in underwear eating almonds, going to the gym, watching Girls or Law and Order marathons without feeling bad about it. i'm going to focus on getting things done instead of having too much fun-- gotta have balance!
