It's weird how some things can sneak up on you.
Like end of leases. As you may know, my roommates and I affectionately refer to our apartment complex as "the Castle" and it has been our stronghold for the last 2 years, 9 months. Sadly, the search for greener pastures (a backyard) and unhappiness with the management has led to our exodus today. So we're moving into "the plex" - a privately owned duplex with much more space, a backyard, and much better condition. Not to mention that we can be pretty loud and not have to worry about the neighbors :)
Well, we've been here almost 3 years, and gone through a total of 7 roommates. It's been a good time. There has been much fun, much fighting, much farting, and altogether too much facetious man-love. You guys are gross, seriously. It's almost depressing how a little tiny thing such as getting married can break up a nice fun time and separate roommates :) Well, in Drew's case we were relieved when he left :), but it's sad to see Dave go. What's up with this marriage kick Apex has been on lately anyway? It looks like I may be the only survivor in the house in a year or two :)
But life goes on. Tomorrow is another day. The sun will come up tomorrow. All those other trite things people say.
Realistically, the only thing I can count on is an aching back and dust-irritated sinuses.
That and my brand new home theatre system that's waiting for me at the new place.
Come to think of it, the future looks brighter already. I gotta wear shades.
Where was I?
Oh, that's right... Good night, and from the Castle, this is Chu, signing off.
Offended? Intrigued? Contact my manager.
Here begins your journey into the mind of everybody's favorite asian, and I don't mean Jet Li.
What follows is the somewhat inane, mostly irrelevant, and self-important ramblings of a man on the brink of madness.
Welcome... to the Chu.

Deconstructing Castles [L]
