Home is where your story begins, or so they say. Now, the title doesn’t have any relation to this post, but I googled “House quotes”, and I should’ve known better.
I’m sitting at the kitchen table, typing my first blog post from the new house. I am really doing something productive- I’m hurrying up and waiting. Yesterday I set up the wifi (and cried a little at the wiring done in the meter closet) and now I’m waiting for the TV to decide to finally want to work.
The first picture here to the left, is what the closet looked like before I put the modem in (yes, it’s a modem. With WiFi capabilities. *twitches*).
The picture to the right is after installing the modem. It’s still barely better, but it… works. I just kind of want to cry and install little tiny shelves. It honestly is slightly frustrating, especially coming from the US where you had the freedom to put your router and phone (almost) anywhere. The “meterkast”, or “meter closet” in English- is kind of just a pain in the neck.
Oh- another pain in the neck?? The WiFi doesn’t reach my room. Time to go buy a WiFi Range Extender. I wanted to use the NetGear router dangling from the cable in the “before the modem” picture and set up my own WiFi in my room. But, my mom isn’t necessarily a fan of running Ethernet Cables through the house. Darn… :p
This is my view right now, the leaning tower of boxes and the TV loading screen. It’s rather annoying- and has probably
been sitting like that for about half an hour.
But on a side note, our living room looks really cute and the couch is comfortable as heck. Also yes, I *did* line up the bird picture with the TV. From this angle, it doesn’t look like it- but I promise it is. I spent *wayyyy* too much time doing so.
It’s coming along. It’ll start to feel like home soon, right? When we actually start sleeping here… Right? Hopefully. Ikea is coming tomorrow to set up my dresser, my brother’s bed, and bring mattresses. I’m excited for that, because it means I can go back to doing productive things in my room. And make my bed. And decorate. And hang stuff up. Okay, I’m a tad excited about my room. Who wouldn’t be, though?
Oh! I finally remembered what I’ve been meaning to post about. Remember my friend that crashed into the lake? (See this post) Well, he’s okay! And so is his instrument. He lost some music and solos, but other than that, he’s absolutely fine. Even his phone works again. I was so relieved. Shout-out to all my friends that helped me find out he was okay/helped me calm down. My mom, too. She helped me a bunch.
Well, the TV is still loading, bu I think I’m going to go take a nap in the recliner now that my mom left the house to go pick my brother up from school. Yay, productivity!
Have a great day, everyone 🙂
