Her (frequently stated, so far) opinion of my new apartment is that it is too good for me.
She has some pretty interesting ideas on how I should furnish it, based on my budget and time I plan to stay. I think we both sense how much potential the place has/had if I could afford real furniture... and if I wouldn't kill the dozens of house plants the place longs for.
Back to work for me. I now have several work deadlines before I leave. This is coupled with the need to fundraise at least $1400 for the trip. And then I remembered that, because I'm not coming back til August, I will have to be completely moved by the end of next Friday. I forgot what it is like to sense the impending stress like an approaching thunderstorm.
