Right now it seems like all the hassles, the searching, the waiting, all of it has fallen away and given me a new lease not just on an apartment but on life. For a while there in May and June, things were a bit iffy. It felt like Ukraine and I had broken up and become reluctant roommates. Now we've moved past that awkward stage and have become- if not as friendly as before- at least more understanding of each other. It's amazing what a change of scenery can do!

Another new thing for us is the mattress with box springs. Thinking back on all the places we've lived together, it's been about 5 years since we slept on one. Since then it's been the floor (Alaska, about 3 years, out of curiosity), the broken couch bed with a dangerously gigantic crack that you could get trapped if not careful (Kharkov), and a foam mattress glued to a bed (also Kharkov). After such a long time, being on this mattress feels like falling asleep on a cloud!
