I could never be a nomad

It occurred to me today that I have moved 5 times in 5 years - that's more than some people move in their entire lives! It's stressful, tiring, and dirty...but there is always a light at the end of the tunnel when you get into your new place. At least that's how it's been for me.
I always like to purge a bunch of crap when I move, it feels kind of liberating and quasi-minimalist. I somehow managed not to horde too much stuff this year, so it's been fairly, dare I say, simple. I am actually almost done aside from the kitchen and stuff that I still need around my bedroom. Not bad, considering I once decided to move without packing first and invited a bunch of people over for a blitz-fill-up-the-box-and-run party. It was ridiculous.
As of the 1st (and maybe, fingers crossed, even earlier) Matty and I will be official Allstoners. It is quite a change for me...a whole number in my zip code and no more Brighton! Good thing it's only a few blocks away...and closer to the Model, Deep Ellum and the Silhouette. I cannot wait to be moved and settled in! Having our own space and making a home is going to be amazing. Nesting mode - here I come!
In other Stefanie news, I am incredibly, incredibly addicted to my iPhone. I can't find anything that it can't do! Silly, maybe, but I'm sold. Apple can totally have my soul.
I am also SUPER excited to announce that I received a call from the organization that I really, really want to work for asking if I would be interested in another position that I didn't apply for (which is a better position than the one I applied for). I got the call on Monday night, and have yet to get in touch with the woman, but I am reminding myself that they called me and offered me the position, so it is only a matter of getting a hold of each other and working out the deets. I would absolutely love this position for a number of reasons including 1) it is in the city of Boston (fuck you commuting!), 2) it is working for an organization that I respect and is progressive and realistic 3) it deals with re-entry and re-integration into the community - which I have come to realize is something I really love. I am trying not to freak out that they haven't returned my call...but I am returning their call...so, fingers crossed, I hope to have an exciting update soon.
Aside from that I am dealing with being tired, Matty working all week, and an overall poopy attitude because my house is in boxes. On the light side, I have my iPhone, and the weekend is right around the corner. Meaning Nina and Dave's Boston reception, Matty time, and of course good times around the hood.
Until next time!
