A truly amazing city
OK. So now I’ve spent just over 3 weeks here. It has been really exciting. I almost feel like a new person. I’ve been doing a lot of things differently than in times past.
Here is the house I’m living in. Sorry, the picture is dark. I decided to update the blog at the spur of the moment, and well, you get what you get. Anyway, it is a 108 year old house that apparently is modular. The landlord says it (and the 3 houses nearby) were shipped on on trains and then assembled on site. Turns out it was also assembled without inuslation. No minor issue, but at least we don’t live in Minneapolis!
I have also been going to a number of different groups. If you are new to a city (or if you just want to make friends in your current one) I strongly suggest meetup.com. I have used that site to meet a lot of new people. I found Spanish languge groups, professional networking groups, and I’m sort of starting a Korean language group as well.
I am also trying to be more intentional about eating well. I mean, in my previous life, I was content to just eat chicken nuggets and call it a day. Or ramen. On occasion I would get really enthusiastic and make something more special. I decided it was time to grow up in this area, so I subscribed to a weekly shopping list/recipe website. I need that because I am so clueless otherwise.
I have joined zipcar. Read about it. It is awesome and fun.
