Things I have learned

December 7, 2009 erinstine

It’s been 4 months since I’ve lived in my new place.  In that time, I have noted a few things.

  1. It takes me 4 months to use a tube of toothpaste
  2. Certain coffee shops have better wireless service than others.  St. Louis / Panera Bread habitually kicks me off and makes me log back in at about the 45-minute mark – I think they’ve got somebody in the back that keeps resetting it to get people to give up and leave
  3. Lonesome and alone are two different things, and I have had my share of being one or both (and often neither)
  4. I know some really nice people in this town that have been way more supportive than I could have ever hoped
  5. People tend to open up about their own problems when they see you’re going through some too
  6. Two long flights of stairs may not sound like much, but talk to me when you’ve just done the grocery shopping
  7. I can build a metal sideboard, as long as there are clear instructions and diagrams from Sweden to help me
  8. I can also drive myself to Urgent Care when the paring knife gets away from me
  9. Running in an old neighborhood with uneven sidewalks can be dangerous when people don’t sweep up the leaves
  10. 2am is about the only time where provel cheese is remotely tolerable.
  11. It’s been hard.  But I feel more honest with myself than I have in a long time.
