What I’m doing now

(This is a now page, and if you have your own site, you should make one, too.)

Nesting in Oxford, England

After six months of living out of my suitcase at various AirBNBs, I finally have a home in Oxford. I just moved in two days ago.

The last two months have been almost full-time doing the various things related to moving from one country to another: government forms, banks, utilities, realtors, schools, furnishing, etc.

So I’m loving that it’s all done — that I can just be home and work.

Work first. Socialize later.

I was excited to move to Europe, and assumed I’d immediately start visiting some of the many places I want to get to know.

I also assumed that after seven years of being solitary, I’d meet up in-person with a lot of people around here.

But I’ve decided to finish my books first.

  1. “Your Music and People” is done, just getting translations edited.
  2. “Hell Yeah or No” is mostly done, just needs editing.
  3. “How to Live” is a rough draft, and needs some months of writing.

So I’m saying no to everything else until they’re complete.
