The old and new apartments :)

Some pics of the old apartment one last time before I painted.

Some pics of the new apartment!
Don't mind the mess... I'm still in the process of unpacking. Oh and that's our fish Perry! :) (after Joe Perry)

Cleaning, painting and mosquitos...?

I'm almost done cleaning... just the finishing touches left. Like the bathtub and the sink, which I've had dirty water and such in while I've been cleaning. Moved some more storage type stuff today. And threw away the collection of magazines I had. Hard to believe I know, but I think I'm finally realizing that it's not worth it to save some stuff. Sure it'd be funny to look back at some of the Cosmo's and such in 50 years :) but I can go to the library and do that right? I know I won't want to haul all that stuff everytime I move for the next 50 years either.

I also spray painted some stuff tonight, a frame, and a shelf. As I was doing that I realized something I didn't know... mosquitos are very attracted to the smell of spray paint! I have a million bites on my legs and arms, and I know I killed at least half a dozen...

School starts tomorrow... which means it's officially the end of my last summer vacation ever. At the end of this school year, we get about a 2 week break and then it's straight into our rotations which will last until May of 2010. I can't believe it's already so close... makes me nervous. I've been in school for 17 years, life without school will be weird. And I also realized that if we're really going to go to Jamaica after I graduate we're going to have to start planning soon, it's only like a year and a half away...

I'm just about all moved out from the apartment. Everything inside is gone except for cleaning supplies, and then I just have to move everything out from my storage unit downstairs. Not a whole lot down there, but probably a couple trips in my car. I've gone up and down the stairs there I don't even know how many times in the last week or so, and I'm definately feeling it. It's almost like actually going to the gym :) Once I get settled in a little more (aka once I get my stuff unpacked and placed where I want it :) I'll post some pics of the new place when it looks a little less cluttered :)

Tomorrow I'm headed up to the old apartment to clean, vacuum and shampoo the carpets, then I have to paint :*( I have to paint my room back to normal, and I have to paint over Mom's mural... so sad. But I guess we knew that going in, and she's gonna paint a new one at our new place, we already have the picture picked out and everything. Then I'll be ready to turn in my keys! Yay!

I'm really liking living in a house, even if it is an old one that creaks a lot :) And living with Andi is great!

Next week it's back to school. We already have a test on Friday. A math proficiency exam, and you have to pass in order to schedule rotations, otherwise you get stuck with whatever is left over. I'm not too worried about it yet, got a chance to study a little at work tonight. I'm not ready to get back to the books though. This was my last summer break ever and I can't believe it went by soo quickly.
