A New Sort of Life

I almost feel like this is a whole new beginning for the blog, it's been so long since I posted anything with real content. Whole new life, whole new location, whole new Kelly to go along with it.

Here's a short, short version of everything that has happened since graduation:

*Mom made a full recovery from her sickness.
*I spent the summer getting hit on by middle-aged men while serving beer at a golf course.
*On August 8th, I moved in with Dan, in his parents' basement.
*On August 24th, I started teaching and taking graduate classes.
*I started a podcast!
*On Sept 7th, Dan and I signed the lease on our first apartment together.

The whole apartment thing is... almost eerie in how well it worked out. We had been looking for a while, always disappointed because they wouldn't allow 3 cats. Then we called this one ad, but the apartment wasn't in the area we wanted.

But wait, said the guy on the phone, I have another apartment coming available soon in the area you want. For a rent that seems like pennies. And I won't charge you extra for the cats. And I'll pay for your heat, water, sewer and trash. Would you be interested?

Needless to say, we were. It's an adorable apartment, 2 bedrooms, in a nice area, close to everything, including school, and on October 1st, it's ours. After signing the lease, we decided to celebrate in as adult a manner as possible:

Next post: Meet my new kitties!
