Packing for Waterloo
I can’t believe that I managed to screw up my New Year’s resolution on the second day :) I was aiming for the ‘blog every day’ gig….but I nicely managed to circumvent that by falling asleep while packing.
Its taking me quite a bit longer than expected to pack all my stuff. I guess its to be expected. After all, within the space of a day I have to prioritize my possessions, uproot my life, box it and prepare it for transport. And I have to do this every 4 months. I think next term I’ll simply live out of my boxes. That seems to be the smarter approach to life.
I can see it now – my book on life: “Live out of a box!”
Annoying as it is, I suppose at the very least it’ll allow me to understand what exactly I need in terms of clothes, possessions etc. I think you’d be surprised just how much you can stuff into a suitcase and a few boxes.
What about the year? Oh yeah – can’t say that I’m _really_ looking forward to 2004 all that much. After I’ll be in school for 8 months this year (two study terms). On the plus side at the end of this year I will hopefully be entering 4th year engineering. I’ll see what the year brings out.
Note: My box will be unavailable starting 8:00 PM EST today as it will be moved as well.
