Maple Avenue

Within one month's time I managed to:
Photobucket Drive from Phoenix to Louisville
Photobucket Total my car
Photobucket Push my bank account down to $0.24
Photobucket Help brew beer
Photobucket Start following a murder
Photobucket Attend my first jury trial
Photobucket Meet a cool bullmastiff

But now I'm pretty much completely settled into Waynesboro, Virginia life. It's weird. For the first time in four years I don't have a roommate, I'm making trips to the grocery store, thinking about cooking (in terms of whole meals), learning how to budget myself, etc.

When I crashed my car (and hurt my eye), it was on the day I'd left my house in Louisville to start my "new life" in Virginia ... my car was packed. Everything I owned was with me.

That being the case, I needed to find a new car that could transport me and everything I owned to Virginia. So I ended up getting a solid gold 1996 Volvo station wagon. I actually love it...and because it is so gold I named it "The Shoe" (though I rarely refer to it as such...naming a car is weird) because it looks very much akin to Usain Bolt's Olympic shoes.

The job: I am loving it so far...and I'm sure I'll post about it in the future, once I get internet at my apartment, etc.

Anyway, as the apartment goes, I made a video (poorly edited as I lost my video editor when I got a new computer...in fact, note my heavy, out-of-shape breathing in the video) of the apartment. I still need a sofa, etc...but other than that I'm pretty much set up.

Nice windows! I also really like your new car. How many mpg do you get with it?

I'm not sure the number of miles I get regularly. But I went 400 miles without stopping on the interstate once.
