Sorry for not posting in so long. As you may know, we had some issues with our internet company and it ended up taking a really long time for us to get connected. But, it’s finally done now so I’m back.
We are nicely settled in to our new apartment. It is definitely a lot bigger than our old place, and we have a lot more storage thanks to a big walk in closet with big shelves and a large shelf unit that we got off Craigslist for $50. We also went to Ikea with our moving truck and got a big desk for me and some chests of drawers for the bedroom (those cheap Rast ones….. I sense some DIY in the near future….) and a few other things. Thank you aunties and uncles for that!
The new apartment is very very quiet and the building is kept very clean. You can hear the Skytrain a bit with the windows open but it’s a gentle sort of whooshing sound and doesn’t disturb me. It is awesome being so close to the station, and the trains come every 1-3 minutes.
Since we didn’t have internet or TV it was a little dull at some points, so we tried to get out of the house as much as possible. We went to see the fireworks competition twice (more about this later), went to the movies, went to the library, shopped around Metrotown, uhhhh and more stuff that I can’t remember right now. We also played a lot of games (Carcasonne, Agricola and Dominion are favourites at the moment), and watched a lot of Mad Men. The weekend was a bit like being at the cottage really, with our lack of technology.
Anyway, that’s all for now, I don’t have time to edit any pictures right now so I should keep this entry short.
