Everytime You Say Goodbye, AG Says Hello.


I’ve lived in my home for like eight years.  On and off, to be honest. Yet, she was always home at some level.  I remember the very first time I went home.  I had arrived from a red eye flight from Hawaii in the middle of January.  I hadn’t seen the main land in about five months and I was in no mood to deal with the cold weather.  The place  seemed so foreign then.  It was hard to attack the jet lag in a place that wasn’t home.  At least not any home that I knew.  I loathed the first year there.  I hated Boston, I hated the city life, I just plain hated.  I wanted no part of it.  (To some extent I feel the same way about Boston today.)


Fast forward about four years later.  I hated the thought of moving to New York.  I didn’t mind the moving.  It was the leaving my home in Boston. It was my home.  It was the place where I had all my things that mattered to me. How could I sleep anywhere else?  New Yorkers don’t sleep.  They disco nap.  How would I survive? This home was so good to me. She took care of me and never let me down.  


Fast forward about another four years later. I cannot believe last night was my last night.  My last night!  I got home from UC’s around midnight and to be honest, I crashed.  It was weird doing things for the last time there.  My perfect shower, my perfect closet, my semi-charmed life. Going, going, gone!


I’ve decided that change sucks.  Who likes change?  I personally do not.  We cannot go back in time though.  So, I hold my head high. With much love I am saying “goodbye” to Main Street and “hello” to my new home by the sea.  I hope Main remembers to write and leave a light on once in a while.

  4. Chuckles Says:

    I like change. Change is the only true constant in life. So then change doesn’t change. I must not like change then. But I like it. Argh. I think I just pulled a muscle in my brain.

  5. Adorable Girlfriend Says:

    You pulled something and it wasn’t AIF’s finger.

  6. Adorable Girlfriend Says:

    He’s probably OK. I think he smoked too much with Poppie Pop and he’s waiting to come to.

    “I’ve decided that change sucks.”

    That, AG, is the cornerstone of all things conservative.

    Welcome to the dark side!

    I just sold my 1928 Spanish Colonial Revival house that I had lived in for five years and that I spent over a year restoring. I sold all of my worldly possesions (except my art collection, a few sentimental books, letters and cards, pottery, and rugs, a few changes of clothes and my prized tchotkes). I’m down to a 5’x5’x5′ cube, which is still an incredible amount of stuff. It feels great!

  10. Adorable Girlfriend Says:

    I am so jealous Gregor! My goal is to get down to two boxes and some furniture I really love.
