Edge of the world

(no subject)

The move today went nicely and I'm now established in my new house. It's fantastic! I love how roomy the living area is and the way I filled it with furniture. Some relatives came along and tried to influence things, and as much as I appreciate that they came to help, I made it nice and clear that I'm the one living here and I don't want them going around doing stuff I don't want done yet! But it all wo rked out very nicely in the end. It's a bit of a shame to be stuck on dialup now, but I should have my DSL back on the 6th. Only a couple of days between now and then, and I'm sure I'm going to be busy. There's still some stuff at home to be moved, just little things that it wasn't worth putting in the removalist's truck and wouldn't fit in our already heavily laden car, so I'll have to head back to get those things, and of course, I have a whole new area to discover. I'm glad I don't need to worry about finding a good bookshop - they're almost non-existent in Queensland, even Franklin had better bookstores than the entire Gold Coast city despite their relative sizes, but I of course have access to the university's library! I should find out if I can access it now or if I have to wait until classes commence.

For now, I better go and continue setting stuff up here. I've three bookcases for my books, and I hope that's sufficient. Putting all of those books on their shelves will take forever, especially as I can be quite pedantical and particular in my arrangement. And of course, there's a whole lot of other things to put in their correct places around the home. One final thing, though: it seems everyone but me thinks my bedroom arrangement is not desirable, even though I think it's perfectly logical and practical. Not that I care, though - as I've had to tell multiple relatives and removalists, everyone but me is living here, so as long as it suits me, it can stay this way!

Have a good one, folks.
