Moving Day

Perhaps you have noticed, perhaps not, that there has been a change in slogan for Decoybetty from "Dancing with gluten-free koalas" to "Once tried, always preferred." While I was travelling with my parents, there was a pizza chain that we saw frequently, Mr. Pizza, and his slogan made me laugh so much that I have borrowed it (is that illegal? Am I going to get in trouble?). I understand that in terms of Decoybetty this slogan probably hardly rings true - but, phooey it makes me laugh.

Later today, I am moving out of my apartment on the 20th floor and moving to a much more grounded second floor walk up. I am one of those people who long in advance wonders what it will be like "to ride the elevator up to the twentieth floor for the last time" or "to use my key for the last time" or "to walk into my new apartment and call it mine for the first time." I generally don't picture fireworks, tears, or grand emotions of any kind. However, I am keenly aware of the significance of each change mostly due to the high level of stress and anxiety that are associated with it for me.
And so today arrives with lots of anxiety and lots of stress and lots of firsts.

Oh, and uni starts up again on Monday.

  1. It's a nice new slogan, and it certainly DOES ring true. Silly.
