I'm getting really excited about my new apartment now. Immediately afterwards I was less excited and more nervous that my parents might get annoyed with me and I was worried about all the logistics in getting subletters and crap, but now I'm letting myself just be excited. I'm really looking forward to living there (although it feels like forever before that'll happen). I'm dying to have my own room (not that sharing a room with Li is bad or anything, I just definitely prefer having privacy and I'm looking forward to being able to organize and decorate the room exactly how I want and not having to worry about when I want to go to sleep early and she stays up late or vice versa), and sharing a bathroom with only one person will be much nicer, and there are hardwood floors! (Have I mentioned how much I want hardwood floors? Because it's a lot.) And I feel like... cleaning the apartment and stuff will be easier with only 2 people (I can even base this on psychological principles! The more people around, the more you're going to be like "Well, someone else will take care of it" and so you don't do anything. It's like the Bystander Effect, where everyone watches some horrible accident or whatever occur, but no one tries to help or calls 911 or anything because they all assume someone else will). And I'll also be really happy to have an apartment that's only one level; I get annoyed with having to go downstairs whenever I want to cook something, and laundry is two floors down (laundry at the new place is like one floor down still, but I don't have to go through someone's room to get there, like I do now, which I feel gives me greater flexibility in doing laundry). This is not to say that I don't enjoy the apartment I'm at now, because I do, and I'm sure there will be flaws in the new apartment (like, one of the bedrooms has a closet that's super small, and the other bedroom doesn't have a closet at all, but instead has like... a rod kind of? idk, at some point I'll post pictures, although probably not for 2+ months, and right now the closets we have are absolutely huge, which is good since I have many clothes. Also, the new apartment might not have a garbage disposal). But I'm still really excited and eager to move in, even though that won't happen until late May at the earliest, early September at the latest.

This 3-day weekend has gone pretty well, productivity-wise. I mean, obviously getting an apartment was productive and one less thing to worry about, but I've made good progress on schoolwork. I still feel a little behind just because of how much I have left to do (finished 2 assignments, but I still have 2 exams I've barely studied for and my class facilitation thing on Thursday, which I'm like... 35-50% done with the powerpoint and research and all that, I think). But I'm feeling a little better about this week now than I was a week ago, at least, and about my class facilitation specifically (I mean, I'll still be nervous as hell, but at least I'm more comfortable with what I'm going to talk about). So hopefully I'll make it through the week in one piece.

Anyways, time to start studying for my Origins exam!
