focus. more apartment. etc.

September 13, 2011 Posted by the writer

Alright. I’m refocussing.

Let’s talk more about apartment. Because this remains at the forefront (can you tell I’m back to writing speeches? who uses the word forefront?).

Yesterday I saw a place that I love love loved and think I might be able to barely afford. It’s the top floor of a walk up building right outside of Times Square.

Pluses: I could walk to work. It drenched in natural light. It’s midtown Manhattan.

Minuses: It’s a million dollar shoe box. There are many stairs involved.

Looking for apartments actually sucks. Then once I move in, I have to furnish it… which also sucks. I couldn’t be any less interested in purchasing furniture. All I want remains to be a desk and real computer… along with the puppies teleported to NYC from AUS, I don’t think that’s a lot to ask, really.

On the up side, my job is wonderful. And yes, I’m completely serious. I work for an international member organization. Yesterday my day entailed writing speeches for delivery in Bangladesh, Copenhagen, and Warsaw.

It’s hard finding ways to use your skills as a wordsmith that support survival. I’m lucky to like what I do. Imagine if I could somehow swing writing books…
