Making my first move

Postby nsulham » Tue Feb 08, 2005 1:01 pm

Hey guys, just wanted to let you all know I'll be moving Thursday and might not be on for a week or so until I get everything hooked up and whatnot.

I finally landed a TV job so I'll be moving from Pennsylvania to Charlottesville, Virginia. I've lived in PA all my life so this should be a different experience. My first apartment as well, since I lived in the dorms at college all four years and moved back with my parents after I was done.

Nice thing is that two of my best buds from college are also down there at the station, and I'll be living with one of them. Also have another friend about 1.5 hours away.

I've got my friends down there so I'm grateful that I'll know people and will have people to go out with but I'm still a little nervous, only because it's my first move and stuff. Not like scared or anything, just wondering what it'll be like.

Any tips/advice on how to get by living in an apartment on a not-so-great salary?

Hmmm how to get by...don't get cable...If you are in an apartment building then try to get a wireless connection for internet and just gank someones signal..I know in my building there are like 15 unprotected signals...

That way you can just download shows like family guy or simpsons through bearshare and if you want to watch sports go to a bar and drink beer like a man...

also, don't eat out much..its tough and I'm a failure at it...look for cheap happy hours....Since UVA is in charlottesville it should be a cool place to chill...

Also, sleep with lots of chicks
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

good luck moving and the job nsulham. ;-D

guess we have another tv/radio personality in the cafe. :-)

i have moved so many times now that i don't even get attached to a place anymore, which is not necessarily a good thing. it's a little tough in the beginning, kinda like going to a new school when you are a kid, but if you know people there already and they are good friends you should be fine. ;-D

This might sound totally retarded to some people, but to keep my self from spending money, I got a job that required me to work weekend nights. I figured I spend most of my money on Friday and Saturday night, so I just started working. Instead of losing money, I was making it.

Of course, I didn't care much for "traditional" social life, and I had no problem picking up women once I got out of the Army, so I could afford to give up the social time.

Anyway, good luck with the move. I hope the job turns out good for you.

;-D

"Making my First Move"

wouldn't this be an appropriate title for a DaQ thread? :-D
