Training

So we¬† moved to a great apartment, but the first week was pretty rough due to the fact that we have trains going by throughout the day. It took about a week for me to get used to them running by during the night, and now I don’t wake up at all. Luckily they are going pretty slow when they pass our apartment.

Phew.

I found out this morning that I’m not going to have to move to another apartment in our complex. I put in notice that I was leaving a month ago, but then found out that I had more work to do. It turns out in that time the apartment had been rented out. I’ve been worried about this for a couple of weeks, but am really happy to know I don’t have to move this weekend.

Time to Move

My apartment management have put these fliers up around the complex. Apparently they like to fly cash in front of me. I’d really like to talk to whoever typed that sentence.

But in all seriousness, it looks like I will be moving within a month. Greenville doesn’t have anything left for me, so I’m going to head down to Atlanta and look for some opportunities there. I’ve been applying to jobs anywhere around Atlanta. This complex has just about driven me crazy at times, from the neighbors next to me who have fights in the middle of the night to the toddler that screams/screeches 24/7 below me, to the old neighbor that ran into my car while I was stopped. It’s time to go.

Ideally, I’d be able to find jobs and a decent house to rent, but as of right now, everything is up in the air. I’m trying to stay positive about it though.

New Dryer

My dad and Marc came up from Atlanta today to deliver a new old dryer to Sara and I. Our dryer died about a month ago, and it’s been pretty annoying to take the laundry to the apartment wash room.

Dollar Mart

Just across the street from my apartment is a strip mall (great place to live!). In that strip mall is the wonderfully named Beef ‘O’ Brady’s sportsbar/restaurant, and a cheap looking Dollar Mart.

I’m not sure of why I first stepped foot in the Dollar Mart, but I’m glad. Behind the dirty looking exterior of what seems to be just another dollar store filled with Chinese made mercury painted plastic goods, there is a huge selection of great food. Somehow this store gets damaged boxes and just-about-to-expire goods. But what makes it great is the selection. The shelves and bins are usually stuffed with organic and healthy food. They also carry a large selection of teas. I’ve been stocking our shelves with PG Tips for months now.

It’s just a store and all, and nothing to get too excited about, but it is nice to be able to buy good foods that cost only $1 or $2.
