New apartment  
So, the moving is done, the dust is vacuumed up, and we've successfully finished moving other than a few things. Mostly, hanging paintings. We were going to ask if it was okay to put nails in the walls, but on further inspection, the walls are made of concrete, which makes nailing anything to them somewhat difficult. :p Though apparently they make special nails for hanging things on concrete walls, so maybe we'll use those? We'll have to ask the landlord what his rules are.

It turns out the aforementioned doorman is only around during non-business hours. I am content to believe that for his 9 to 5 job, he's a superhero who fights crime. Probably white-collar crime, considering.

I'm looking for jobs. I applied to a job as a proofreader for the AMA, so we'll see if anything comes of that. In the meantime, I'm going to keep looking. I'm lucky in that softlykarou and I managed to save an enormous amount of money while overseas, so we have a nice cushion to draw on while I'm looking. Hopefully we won't need to draw on too much of it, though. Never spend the principal. :p

All that stuff I mentioned being nearby is actually even more nearby than I thought, usually by a block or so. The Ethiopian restaurant I mentioned is tasty, there's a Thai place nearby as well, a liquor store, a pizza place that also has falafel and kebabs for some reason, a bus route that goes right down to the Loop, and a bunch of other stuff. This is an amazing location.

Birthday is coming up. I have little to no interest in actually planning something for it. Though I'm kind of a hermit, so that's nothing new.

Nothing else to report now.

Happy birthday in any case :)
