I am getting so very excited about this move. And yes, Christmas was yesterday, and it was a wonderful Christmas, but this move has been on the forefront of my mind. I guess it's because this is the first time I'll have my very own place. And that is just so exciting. Freshman year, I lived in the dorms. Sophomore-Senior year, I lived in the sorority house. When I studied abroad in London, I lived with a host family. When I was working at that summer camp in the Poconos, I had to live in the cabin, controlled and patrolled by the higher ups of the camp. When I lived in Germany, I had to live in a hotel that was also laced with all these rules. This will be the first time ever that I'll have a place that's just mine. I don't have to worry about coming home too late, or bringing a guy home with me, or drinking, or partying with whoever, whenever and wherever.. it's just all up to me. Granted, I am living with Heather, but seriously she is like another me. We are two peas in a pod. And we've lived together before, in the sorority house and in Germany, so we already know how to communicate about things roommates must communicate about. Like bills and cleaning up, or whatever else. So it's a very exciting thing. Though, I know a lot of it also is just getting back to Oregon. Back to Eugene. Back to a place that I really do consider home.

Tomorrow Heather's calling up the owner of the apartment to let him know that we're faxing in our applications to him by Tuesday, and also find out if he wants us to mail him the deposit, or do it over the phone, or what. It's also to make sure he knows we are dead serious about this place. And we make good on our payments. And though this place is like, 90% ours in my mind because of what the guy already said, and because I left him that message to say we'd take it, the phone call with him tomorrow is really it. He confirms with us tomorrow that the place is really ours. So if the call goes well with him tomorrow, this thing is 100% happening. Cause me and Heather already have the money ready, so if he says it's ours, that's it. I'm slightly nervous, cause I want this so much, and that paranoid part of my brain is worried that he changed his mind. Though that makes no sense, because even if he didn't tell us that we could just let him know on his message machine and that'd be it, there'd be no way he'd find another buyer on Christmas Eve or Christmas, cause he wasn't in the office. And today was Sunday, so he wasn't doing business today either. So though I know it's pretty much in the bag, I just want that 100% assurance. I want him to tell us the place is ours. And when he says that, I can fully rejoice about this.

Though, me and Heather are already planning how to decorate it. Which can I just say, is so very fun. I need to think about how I want to decorate my room. I've never been big on interior decorating, but I really want my room to be a fun place to be. So I'm definitely thinking it through. I know I want pictures all over the wall. That's always been one of my favorite ways to liven up rooms. But I want to do it in a creative way, so I'm giving that thought. Anyways, it's fun stuff. But after tomorrow is when I'm really gonna get down and dirty with it. Like tell all the Oregonian friends that I'm finally moving. Like John. He's gonna be shocked, I think. Cause seriously, I talk with him about moving up there so much, that I'm pretty sure it's just white noise to him now. But once he knows it's really happening, and he finds out the place and the date, he'll know it's finally real. I'm not completely sure how he'll react actually. I think it'd be funny if he decided to move down here or finally go to Europe or somewhere else, right when I move up there. That'd be classic. And really with us, it wouldn't surprise me at all. We're all about narrow misses.. the timing's just never right with us. It's more comical than anything else really. It's probably for the best though, we'd suck at being a couple. He thinks the opposite, but I'm a girl, so I'm smarter, haha. Anyways, after tomorrow, I'll know for sure. We'll see what happens! The odds are with us, but tomorrow we'll know without a shadow of a doubt. Tomorrow has potential to be an incredible day.

i love decorating, especially when i have lots of money to throw into it. if i were you, i'd choose the basic colors that you want going on in your room and just go from that. when i moved into my new apt. my main goal was to have a more "adult" looking room, do i went with tan/red/black and chose little knick knacks within that color pallatte. fun times.

yah, I might focus on a blue-themed room. I love blue. But then again, I love a lot of different colors. I might just wander around Wal-Mart and see if a certain bedspread or fabric inspires me, and then just build from there. So fun.
