I’ve got boxes, packing labels, bubble wrap, and I’m going to get more of the big blue IKEA bags. I love those things. You can load them up with so much stuff, and then you’ve got the handles to carry them by.
Right now I’m excited, and a bit stressed, but later I know I’ll be having to say goodbye to a very sweet place. I’ve lived in my current place for so long, and so many things have happened to me personally while I’ve lived there, I thought I’d break it down to a manageable scope of things that happened in the world, the year I moved in:
The Berlin Wall came down
Gas was 97 cents a gallon
Ted Bundy was executed in Florida
Protests in Tiananmen Square, which led to the Tiananmen Square massacre
Nintendo released Game Boy
The Menendez brothers shot their parents
Pete Rose was banned from baseball
Daniel Radcliffe, Jordin Sparks, Chris Brown and Taylor Swift were born
Bette Davis, Salvador Dali, Lucille Ball, Gilda Radner and Sugar Ray Robinson died
When Harry Met Sally, Batman and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade came out.
So yeah, a lot of years. And a lot to reflect back on. And much to look forward to.
