It's time to start all over...to make a new beginning

What better time for a fresh start than the fall? This is precisely the same time of year that in the past I have whined about. The funny thing is, I love the fall; the leaves, the holidays, and quite often the weather. For some reason though, I always tend to get caught up in what I call the "autumn blues." I can't put my finger on exactly what gets me down, but it happens every year at the same time...not this year though! I'm taking matters into my own hands and I'm taking my own advice for once. I'm doing exactly what I always preach: I'm making the change I want to see. Unhappy with my tiny bedroom, and eager to have more of my own space, I decided that the time has come for me to spread my wings to see if I can fly. The little suite that I currently share with my roommate has been a great place to start. The last year and a half there has been full of adventures, changes, excitement and so many memories. It has been a fantastic little neighbourhood and an excellent place to get my feet wet. Now it's time for me to move on to the next phase. I sought and found the most perfect apartment for myself. The moment that I walked in, I knew that is where I am supposed to live. "It's perfect!" I said out loud. And it really is. I couldn't be happier that I'm going to become an independent woman on November 1st. Now for the daunting task of sorting through and packing up my life...

Yay! Good for you, Jenni...I loved living by myself and I'm so glad that I had the opportunity to do so. Wishing you luck....

packing to move is always fun cause then you inevitably find something you thought you'd lost and you get to go "oh THEEEEEEERE that is!"

way to go on a coolio new place!
