9:24 - 'bout damn time // moving

Previous Entry Share Flag Next Entry

So yesterday I went and paid the deposit for an apartment downtown. perhaps not the best part of downtown, but it doesn't seem to be the worst either, so I guess it'll do. I expect I'll be moving next month (it's not quite ready yet for me to move in) and should be entirely moved by May. For the curious, it's near 13th and G.

I've been wanting to live downtown for roughly two decades now, it's good to finally be doing it.

I'm glad you did this. You needed too. It looks like I'll be riding alone to the trails.

dunno if there will be one. I'm still very non-social, so it will have to wait till this passes.

Hell, I'm one to talk. I haven't had a housewarming party yet. ;)

You're always welcome to hang out at my place if you're feeling social.

I've known quite a few people that have this "burning desire" to live downtown.

What was the genesis of yours? What makes Downtown better than Rosemont, for example?

Congrats too.... I've been down there a lot recently. very nice!

I like being downtown, it 'feels' more comfortable. Also, there's the fact that this place is within 5 minutes walk of good coffee, eats and drinks. An easy 7 minute walk to light rail (nearest stop for both lines, nearest stop for just one line is only about 3 blocks away but it's not the line I'll be riding most). river bike trail access is roughly a mile away (instead of three miles). it's just so much closer to everything I'm currently interested in. where I am currently, there is nothing for me nearby. it's a half-hour walk to the light rail, and a fifteen minute to half-hour light rail ride to get anywhere I want to be.

Welcome to downtown!!
13th and G isn't the greatest area, but you are a bright guy.
There are some APT's over here in my neck of the woods BTW. :-)

where are you, anyway? I never learned the new place's spot..

and while 13&G isn't the best, it's only a 6 month lease so it's no biggie.

yeah, I saw a few by 24th and p but passed on them. I wanted this time around to try and stay west of 21st and north of p. even those borders were pushing it, but I figured they were still close enough to downtown.

perhaps next move 24th and p will be reasonable.

I was happy with 24th & P -- very close to Light Rail.

13th and G used to be *much* worse than it is now. I hope you like it. Just keep your bike locked up in the house. But you knew that. :)

yeah, it should be fine. I don't really have all that much stuff, so I don't stand to loose much should someone break in. but yeah, I'll keep the bike locked up inside as well. :)

Oh, and by the way, I miss you. If you ever want to come up for another visit you'd be more than welcome.

And the house is getting nicer every day. :)

I will have to take you up on that, when this funk passes (or perhaps before then, we'll see).

Cheers! I can help you move if you like. God knows you've helped me move enough times.

I appreciate the offer, but I'll be moving myself this time around. I don't plan on moving anything that won't fit in my car, and I can lift everything I have. I won't be needing any help with this.

I'm so happy for you. I admire your ability to follow through with your desire and seek out something you want.

I know you've been feeling anti-social lately, but should you decide to come out of hiding, I'd love to see you (not that I've been all that social lately, either, but for you I could be).

I hope you are well, my friend. =D

Welcome Neighbor. Looks like we'll only be a few blocks from each other now. I hope this means I'll see a bit more of you.

we shall be able to do many things, being a scant 6 blocks from one another. Keep in mind, though, that I don't often seek out company.

Congrats Ryan! Hey, let me know if you'd like any help moving. As you've never let me pay for a meal the least you could do is let me lend a hand :)
*hugs*

I do appreciate the offer, but as I said above I plan on doing this move entirely on my own. If I can't move it myself this time around, I'm not keeping it. Thank you, though, for offering to help.
