“So how’s it going in your new place?”

Thought I would write a post about my one month anniversary at my place. I still have just an inflatable bed and necessities on hand. Lacking curtains, I got 2 plastic table covers from Walmart for 97 cents each and taped them on the windows. Used the excess to cover boxes on my closet shelves. Now everything is coordinated. Soon the heavy curtains that I found at Goodwill will be up on the bedroom windows.

I have sheets, etc in storage and will slowly bring them out. Trying not to bring in any junk because I tend toward packrattedness. Reading Organize for a Fresh Start and Apartment Therapy to help me decide what to keep and what to toss. For right now, I’m living in my apartment like I did in the Y. The consentration is on sleeping, eating, and cleaning up. So, I have everything I need in those areas. As everything settles down into a routine and the paychecks start adding up, then I will pull the rest out of storage. Some of the things are not going to make sense to keep, but since this apartment is a little bigger than I anticipated, I will have room for most of my things.

The idea for Brain Sections came from reading a book about abandoned asylums. I wanted to set a suspense story in that setting. The inclusion of crazed scientists turning homeless people into zombies is what makes the story unique. View all posts by tjmcfee
