I've just made a resolution to apply for fifteen jobs this weekend in the Cleveland-Akron area. Because I'm moving there in a MONTH and I have NO FRIENDS and NOTHING TO DO. These are things that stress me out.
Other things include:
Getting everything at work situated so that none of the balls that I have in the air fall when I leave. Because I love the people that I work with and I don't want to screw them. Did I mention I've been at work for an extra hour both today and yesterday? It's going crazy. (On a side note: Korea? Why did you feel the need to send me boxes of translations of 8 of my books? I had enough to do without sending out all of them to their respective authors. Why couldn't you wait a month so that my successor would do it and I wouldn't have to deal with them?)
MOVING, and everything that it entails. Matt's taking a carload of things that we're not going to take to Akron up to his parent's this weekend. But that's not very much stuff - I still worry that I have enough stuff for a 3-bedroom apartment, and I'm moving into a 1-bedroom apartment. Back, just before the wedding, I was trying to fill the house with furniture, and I bought a big brown leather bench (the one that all my shoes are posed on in the banner) for my foyer. It was the first piece of grown-up furniture that I'd bought all on my own, and I agonized over it. I loved it, but what if my new husband wouldn't? But I bought it. It's been perfect in the foyer, everyone comments on it. So, what am I going to do with the bench in Akron? I have no foyer there. (Can I say foyer another few times? There's more foyer in this blog post than I believe has ever been posted on the internet before.)
Well, I guess that's it. Moving, quitting, and general "what my life will be like in Akron" stress. It's not all that much. But I've managed to stretch this out into a decent sized blog post. But seriously. What if the entire population of Akron hates me? What will I do for a year? Blog 3 times a day while getting fat and crying?
Ok, I was joking about the "blogging 3 times a day". I don't think I've EVER done that.
