So yeah, my time here has actually been pretty awesome. This, to me, was like a slice of life, and experiencing it with my love. In truth, it's really cool. Yeah, I'm a bit messy and it bugs her. (I'm a guy) And she nags about her little quirks (She's a chick), but in the end, it ends up being not a big deal. We don't argue. Never really do so...yeah, we really don't worry about much.
I've done more cooking this week than I think I ever have. Ironic, since she's the one at the high-end cooking school. But it's mostly to alleviate the stress off of her.
But on an even more awesome part. I'm sure some of you know, that I intend on getting into massage therapy as a profession. Well...she got me a Total Reflexology kit, and a Hot Stone Massage kit (of course, I'm breaking it in...on her. x3), and right now I'm pretty excited to get to use it.
Of course, a Chicago studio apartment isn't sunshine and rainbows. That's the only REAL issue I have is the condition of the place itself. She's lived here in Chi for 2 weeks and...
...jammed/messed up toilet, spider issues, only 3 eyes on her stove work, and the one in front that does is majorly slanted up. It's like...a 1980's stove...electric one. Sink stoppers were...well...wrong. Lack of water pressure all over. It just wasn't fun. Worst part of all is that for the last two days, I've been having to travel up to the 20th floor (We're on the 18th) to go use the bathroom, which is on the way to the pools, since her toilet won't flush if there's toilet paper in it. All I know...is that tomorrow, the maintenence is going to have their work cut out for them, since they seemed not to care to fix this stuff -before- a new tenant moved in. Our parents were no help when we complained. Their uniform response was "Welcome to the real world"
>.> Which I say is BS because when you're paying 1150 a month for an apartment, you'd expect it to be mostly livable.
And in closing. I'm happy cuz I also got Archie Sonic issue 226...and Archie Megman Issue 3.
...I'm bugged because I'm missing Archie Sonic issue 225 (read it though), and Archie Megaman issue 2 (which I have NOT read). So yeah, gotta try to find a way to get those.
Anyways, I'll catch up with you all when I get home.
