Movin' on up.

I'm back.

After a long and painfulfive days of dealing with Comcast and getting my service transferred, I have said a fond Fuck You to ol' Comcast and switched to a new company. The mess started with the technician who slowed down outside my apartment on Thursday but never stopped. I called Comcast and the person told me the technician tried but that no one was home. Then everything just snowballed from there, and rather than rehash it here, I will just wipe it from my mind.

I really love my new apartment. I am in a great residential neighborhood called Ravenswood, which is in between some very fun and happening neighborhoods, namely Andersonville and Lincoln Square. My apartment is twice as big as my old apartment and $300 cheaper. And I am half a block from the train I take to work, so I will get 15 more minutes of sleep! (Fifteen minutes does not sound like much, but if it is the difference between 4:45 AM and 5:00 AM, it is a huge amount of time. Yes, I wake up that early for work.) My apartment is also conveniently located near two CTA train lines, making it easy to get around.

My new apartment building, which is on a lovely tree-lined street, has a delightfully landscaped courtyard:

Looking down the walkway of the courtyard.

A Buddha stands outside my doorway.

I look forward to reporting more about my new 'hood.

Congrats on your new beautiful place!

I am sorry to learn that you have decided to receive service from another provider. I am here to help in case you decide to come back as one of our customers.
