Doing as much packing as I can handle. Everyone else hates moving and packing, right? It's simultaneously boring and exhausting in some way. Today I'm determined to go through the bathroom and get rid of lotion, hair products, etc. that I've had forever and just don't use, and I'm packing a huge bag to take with me to Charlotte this week and just leave it there. Rob's been bringing a bunch of clothes each time, which has significantly reduced the size of our closet so far, so that's something.

Thinking about this move, and blogging, and possibly (hopefully!) living in a place for longer than a year. Lately I've been feeling a little uninspired, which makes for a weird blog. Yesterday I went out for a few drinks with some friends in Minneapolis, which always makes me a little sad to leave. I've met some wonderful people in my time here, so it'll be sad to say goodbye. But Charlotte is just a quick direct flight from Minneapolis, so I'm hoping to visit a couple times a year.

Listening to lots of Regina Spektor. I love her all year, but she's sort of my wistful fall go-to, even in July (which is when I start daydreaming about autumn). I'm also totally loving Chvrches lately.

Watching so much Gossip Girl. I don't know what's happening. I started it randomly in March and didn't really watch much of it, but since Rob's been traveling for work, my nights have been all Gossip Girl, all the time. It's so bad but it's so good!

Trying to make the most of this weird transitional time. I really don't like living alone and tend to get kind of anxious when it's time to go to bed in an empty apartment, but I've done fine and as silly as it sounds, I'm kind of proud of myself. It was really nice having Rob home for the weekend, though, and I'm looking forward to spending a few days in Charlotte with him this week.

What about you? I want to know what you're up to currently!

As always, thanks to my friend Dani for the post inspiration!
