>My "Menver" move

>The day has finally arrived when I will join the ranks of coolness in "Menver," I mean Denver. May 1 my lease officially begins on an adorable studio in Capitol Hill - it's about darn tootin' time! It's in Shambhala apartments and I already love the management company Boutique Apartments (http://www.boutiqueapartments.com/ if you're looking for an apt). They focus on eco-friendliness and support community by donations from rent. I couldn't be more excited to support their endeavors and up my rank from basement-dweller to studio-dweller.

Even though I've been wanting to move there for eons (okay fine, about four years), I can't help but feel a little sad about leaving the Springs. Doing something new always has a bit of anxiety involved until there's routine and comfort again. It will be a new lifestyle, new people, and a new city - I can't deny an impending adjustment phase. Although "Menver" certainly has more to offer than just men, I'm sure it will be a lovely distraction until things become more familiar.

Today I'm grateful for packing, cleaning, and thrift shopping.
