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.
