Not that this affects most of you, but as things currently stand, October 26 will be my last day working in Miami. I will be sidling over to Houston to set up shop and maybe shell out $120/year to join the Houston Chess Club. (As a point of comparison, the national chess federation costs me $41/year. To be fair, the HCC looks to be VERY active, with events 5 days a week.)
Before then, I need to take care of 4 major things:
- Finish a webpage (which will hopefully look better than this one)
- Finish a program
- Get a place to live
Which will leave little time for diversion, in theory.
Fortunately, being single and having relatively few possessions will make the move easy. In fact, I should be light enough to try to fit everything in my car. I’ve been throwing out a lot of junk, so far on my 10th Aldi bag. While cognizant of the value of big black bags, I get to use those grocery store-type bags saved up all this time, and now they come into their full glory. (I’ve never been to an Aldi store, by the way; bonus points to the person who knows what I’m referencing when mentioning their bags–yes, it’s obscure.)
