Scroll down for 5/13/02 update.

I am in a good place. A goal that I set for myself this last January has just materialized. I am now living alone once again in my own space. No more roommates to contend with. I can’t begin to tell you how happy and peaceful I feel. I truly didn’t believe this change would happen so quickly. I feel pleased with myself for taking the initiative to make it possible.

I am now living in a new city—the fourth one in two years. Each time I have moved, I have inched a little further south. But mark my words, I will never make it to Phoenix. That city is hell on earth—115 F at 10:00 AM in June. Plus it’s landlocked, polluted, flat, economically stratified, crime-ridden, and the epitome of urban sprawl. Think L.A., only hotter, flatter, drier, and less culturally significant.

I like my new town. It’s centrally located to a lot of surrounding cities so it’s quite easy to commute for work or leisure.

The move has been successful so far. I'm enjoying the changes. Well, one change I suppose is not for the better. I had to pay a visit to the Laundromat this morning. For the first time in 11 years, I don’t have a washer and dryer. I sold mine when I moved to my last house and this new apartment doesn’t have any available for the residents to use. But this is just fine by me.

Update 5/13/02: I now have high speed cable internet and cable television. Yippee! Not sure how much TV I'll be watching. I will catch Mad Men on AMC and Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations on The Travel Channel. But I don't get Bravo channel so I'll still have to watch most of my faves on my PC.
