home is where you hang your hat

It’s two weeks into the new year and I’m already on the move.

I’ve moved out of my sister’s place and I’m living on my own once again.

My new address?

A four month sublet in a little apartment in a charming house.

It’s only temporary, but for now, I call it home.

moved to move

In my 30 plus years, I’ve lived in all sorts of dwellings: dorm, hostel, studio, apartment, triplex, townhouse, semi-detached, house, etc. But alas, I’ve never lived on a boat.

We moved quite a bit when I was growing up, so you might think at some point I’d want to put down some roots.

A part of me wants to, but a bigger part of me (who is a lover of change) enjoys moving somewhere new.

And since I’ve decided to stick around Waterloo for a while and not do very much traveling this year, moving from one place to another can provide me with some excitement.

the year of the sublet

Waterloo is a university town. A lot of students also do co-op terms, so there are always sublets available year round. I could literally go from place to place every four months.

I’m not sure that’s what I’ll do this year, but I’m not ruling it out either.

If I find a charming place of my own that I want to lay down some (tiny) roots in, I’ll take it in a heartbeat.

But if nothing turns up that makes my heart go a flutter, I’ll treat the year of the sublet as an adventure!

Wherever I end up this year, as long as I’m living there, I’m home.

Please note: In the image above, that is not my coat rack, nor is that my framed photography . . . the hat, however, is mine. This sublet has a lot of framed photography. Since I don’t have anywhere to hide them, I’m trying to appreciate them. Most were taken in Japan, so I’m pretending I took them while on a journey a long, long time a ago.
