The Journey has officially begun. I went and signed my lease today and went through about 50 pages of what they expect of the residents. Most of it was common sense and it makes me wonder why they had to include that. One that I thought was crazy was:
"Eating the roofing material or tar is prohibited"
I would love to know why they had to put that in there. After reading this I decided it would be a good idea to read the entire lease agreement. It sounds like it could be pretty funny.
After signing the lease and doing an inspection on the apartment I went to take some things over. I am having to move a few things, but thankfully most of it will be done by the movers. I took Mr. Fish over and he seems to be adapting well to the new environment. It was kind of a bumpy ride and I did spill some water.
As I was taking a few things in my apartment I realized how small the space really is. For some reason the kitchen seemed bigger when I first looked at the apartment. I have almost no cabinet space. Both the refrigerator and stove are so small compared to what I have now. I may be selling some things on Craigslist because I will not have room to store them.
As I stood in the apartment I couldn't help but feel proud. Yes my home will be small, but it will not be lacking in warmth and love.
