Alec and I finally arrived home in Durham a few days ago. We managed to settle in pretty quickly. Of course, it helped that Alec was already living here before I arrived. All we had to do was integrate my stuff with his. Not that it was an easy task, mind you: Alec and I have far too many clothes between the two of us. I wound up throwing out a whole trash bag of clothes in order to fit everything. (That’s one way to purge your wardrobe. Get married.)
Anyway, the apartment is certainly older, and it’s certainly got its issues, but I love this place nonetheless. Maybe because it’s ours, maybe because it has character. Whatever it is, I’ll be sad to leave when our lease is up in a few months.
