Greetings old friends! I've returned to TA for my birthday as I do every summer around this time to scope out the scene and give the forum another go. It's been one hell of a year so let me bring you up to speed!
First off, I am now, against all logic and reason, a certified and bonified homeowner. Somehow I convinced a banking institution that it was a good idea to sell me - an anti-authoritarian, anti-consumerist, anti-capitalist, kopimist, copyleftist, anti-theist, corrupter-of-minds, and pirate of the high seas... a HOUSE.
Thankfully, the joint is everything I wanted in a home - built in 1926 with all its gumwood charm intact, it's been updated with a gas fireplace, new electrical, new roof, energy windows, new furnace, new doors, and new plumbing. Together with my Hufflepuff nerdcore fiance, (we're set to wed in a few weeks!), we've made quite a home out of it.
Best of all, every last item in the packed house of eccentricity and antiquarian fancy was acquired via secondhand shops (save for the crafty items which were all hand made by my fiance).
Check out my new home! This is what it's like living with a Hufflepuff.
There have been so many fantastic additions to my music library this past year, and I'm looking forward to sharing them with you.
Hooray for another spin around the sun! Happy birthday to me.
