So this was an extremely productive weekend. Aside from rereading two enormous novels (All The Kings Men and Confessions of Nat Turner), I also packed up all my things, moved, and adopted an adorable new friend.
This is my new apartment here in Philadelphia. I’m living with two amazing roommates, Tess and Jordan, both of whom are incredibly artistic and a great deal of fun. Jordan is actually a sculptor, and his work is being displayed in a gallery in Philly right now. I’m going to take some photos pretty soon.
I wish I could the place more justice with my camera, but it’s, well, too big. Plus I’m not fully unpacked yet. That big circle thing is from the roof, Jordan brought it down and hung it up. There is an upstairs loft, complete with a seperate bedroom, bathroom, big closet, where Jordan and Tess stay, and a downstairs bedroom with the same things, where I am. The windows overlook center city.
You can see William Penn over there and City Hall. It’s pretty nice, especially when the sun is setting. I’ll have pics of that later this week as I unpack.
I owe a massive thank you to this wonderful girl right here, my buddy Saray, who not only helped me move in over the course of the day (it only took two trips, but traffic and crazy weather was insane), but also took me on an adventure to adopt my new friend. Here you can see her at the register, with a mysterious box. What could be inside?
Hmm… I see the tiniest of ears…
Behold! My new BFF. As of now, my sweet little lionhead dwarf bunny is named Ash. I wanted to name him something from literature, but honestly, look at him. He is just too small and precious to be named Leonidas, Dante, or any of the other bad ass names I was thinking of. So Ash, after Ash Williams, the main character in Army Of Darkness, is his name.
Everyone welcome Ash. He just wants to snuggle you.
