Hello Mom and Dad,
I hope you’re both doing will
Thought it might be fitting to send you an update since I just got myself moved into my new room at the house in West Seattle. I’m still not settled in quite yet. Gotta pick up my bed frame and a couple other things from the Des Moines house. I also realized that I don’t have any actual furniture, so my room is gonna be looking pretty sparse once I do unpack everything. Hopefully I’ll be able to furnish and decorate the room over the next few weeks. I would like to get some sort of standing desk setup in the room at some point, but still not sure how I’d go about designing that.
In case you didn’t have it yet, here’s the address for the my new house:
6907 34th Avenue Southwest, Seattle, WA 98126
It’s nice to be living with a few animals around again There are a total of 3 cats here and the girls have an energetic black lab named Timber (he’s of a lean build, not fat like Copper dog). 2 of the cats are my Michael’s. He’s the guy who works at Tuxedos and Tennis Shoes with me and who invited me to take up the empty room here.
I’ve held on to this latest card that you’ve sent me in my Easter Care package. That was the first care package I’ve received from anyone in quite a long time. It might also be the first care package you’ve ever sent me when I was away from home. I could be totally wrong about that statistic. In either case, I’m extremely grateful for the sentiment that card communicated.
Often, I think about where I was and what was going on in my life a year ago. In the spring, I wonder “what was I doing around this time last year?”. I can say for certain that my outlook on life has taken a sharp upturn since this same time last year. Upon moving back to Des Moines from Missoula, MT in the Spring of 2017, I began suffering internally. The quality of my life has improved dramatically since that last Spring.
It’s great to be in this new home, but I don’t yet know that there is a definitive place I want to be living. I know I’m compelled to move around often, but at some point I imagine it would be more beneficial to stay put and plant some roots. For now, developing myself further in my current pursuits is sufficient.
Thanks for listening! Love you both very much! Hope you can see the new place soon.
