Tomorrow, I vacate my apartment at Apple Ridge. I have lived there since late May. The place itself was pleasant — I enjoyed having two bedrooms, one of which served as my office, and there was a definite benefit to being located conveniently close to the essentials in Standale. Essentials like Blockbuster, Peppino’s Pizza and Meijer.
That said, it’s time to move on. Some exciting things are under development, and the next four-to-six weeks will witness some extraordinary change in the life of Jason. This is for the good. Sometimes it takes a “hard break” like a residential relocation to keep one motivated and moving forward, focused on goals and on the people we love.
In the interim, I’ll be shacking up with family, which has its strengths and weaknesses, but it reinforces the temporary nature of the arrangement. Today, I’ve been shedding stuff — I sold my desk, recliner, and dinette. I have a ton of stuff that will either be junked, or given away to scavengers. When the move is done, I’ll have very little left, which suits me just fine. The reduction of “stuff” is healthy and appropriate.
So, one chapter in live’s novel is closing, and a new one is about to begin. Yay!
