Just a quick update.
The apartment is fully packed (well, 90%) in boxes and bags. Some will go into my car; most of it, though, into storage.
I have about half of my paper down, which I will finish tonight come hell or high water so I can print a copy, then pack up the printer.
I still need to eat the dinner I just cooked, put laundry in the dryer, and take books to the library.
Tonight will be my final night in 620 N. Carroll St., Apartment 409, ever.
Tomorrow morning I will return my Internet box (too stressed to think of what it’s called), get some money from the ATM, retrieve my water bottle from the gym and possibly take a shower if I feel so inclined, pick up some contact solution at Walgreens, shove some stuff in the mail, and get the 1:00 PM bus to Chicago (already paid for!), or, if I play my cards right, the 11:30 AM bus.
I will have no fixed address for the next month.
Adios, Mendota…hola, being a hobo.
