Dear god is it exhausting. I've moved before but that was in college and it was basically a room. My SO and I were in our former house for several years and lets face facts I acquired a ton of shit. We are now almost entirely out of our rental. I'd say about 90% done. There are a couple large items that we need to move and a few plants I would like to take with me.
While I am ready to be out of the house I am going to miss Claremont. It was a fun sleepy town to live in. An interesting combination of college kids and senior citizens. I love still getting carded. The downtown has a cool vibe and there were so many family owned restaurants. It was easy to park and very quiet. I am going to miss my personal trainer JoJo from the Claremont Club most of all. Hopefully with the use of social media I will be able to maintain the friendship.
Friendship, that is another one of those things I am having issues with. My SO's friends group text and they all went to high school together. I am jealous of it. Very few of my friends from high school contact me. Mary is currently pregnant with twins and living in Northern California. Sarina has a toddler and lives in Boston. Lindsay moved to Washington DC and is technically a friend from College. Momoko I assume is still in Portland and as always in high demand as a friend because she is so hardcore. While I connect with them online it isn't the same as having a local day to day friend to talk to. So I am on the hunt for a friend here in Hacienda Heights. I am going to try taking some classes and meet some people with similar interests.
One of the weird things about the move is how different the cities are. Claremont is a very old town. Hacienda Heights is part of Unincorporated Los Angeles county. Swimming is extremely expensive in Claremont and it is cheap here. Claremont has a million places to do Pilates, looks like I will be commuting to do Pilates.
Everyone needs to slow the fuck down while driving. I wish gas prices would go sky rocket high because too many bad drivers are out there & the air quality is terrible lately. Two weeks here and I was rear ended at the end of an already shitty day. The day before my birthday.
My purse is way to heavy. It set off the seat belt warning in my car. Now my shoulder hurts.
