13:54. I slept poorly last night, and found myself awakened between 3 and 3:30 in the morning by a very vivid dream about Stephanie. A story followed. It needs polishing, and I wouldn't say it's my best piece, but it is completely new (not a re-hash of old ideas) and is the first new story I've written in years.
14:48. And in other news, it looks like there won't be another date with **** after all. It was the classic "It's not you, it's me" message via OKC. So, back to square one.
05:25. So I'm now the proud owner, or rather renter, of an 8'x10' storage space. I'd been thinking about it for a while, and finally at around 16:30 yesterday I decided to get it over with, so I drove down to the Downtown Self Storage at 13th and Johnson and secured a unit. I'd packed 3 new banker boxes of books and thrown them in the car, so I started putting the space to use right away.
This is all in preparation for my move to Hillsdale, which I still haven't set an exact date for but I expect will be some time in between the beginning of April and the end of July. The sooner I move, the sooner I can start saving money on rent.
