|3/1||Woke up at 6:00am, I had to make phone calls to take care of my personal stuffs regarding to the move, and of course a lot of other for the work. I was expecting some rain but did not happen during the day time. A tornado watch was issued (I think first time this year?) here. Alabama got hit pretty well. Come home early from work to talk to apartment management to take care of paperwork. Went to bed around midnight. The daily high of 51F, which was pretty warm|

Had evening just relaxing, that's what I needed...|

Worked out at home in the morning then headed to Sakura Mart, Office Depot and Meijer for groceries and other items. Flurries observed throughout the day, sometimes looked hard because it was breezy. Went to bed around mid night.|
|3/4||Woke up at 8:00am. It was 17F. I guess it is still cold even in March. A few more snow on the ground as I looked outside in the morning. I spent morning relaxing but went out for running in the afternoon. It's been a while since I ran the trail nearby.|
|3/5||[11th anniversary of coming to
Woke up at 6:00am, stopped by a bank and CVS Pharmacy before heading to work to make a deposit for the new apartment. I had to go to a post office to send it via express mail, also. I thought about cooking noodle but someone took hotpot out of the office kitchen, so I had to go out and eat at Subway... Spent whole day at office, come home around 7:00PM. Headed to gym after dinner for work out, The day started around 20F, with high of 40. Expecting tomorrow low be 15F, it's going to be cold again.

Went to work but realized I completely forgot about the appointment for moving estimate so I had to reschedule for tomorrow. Stayed at work and left office at 5:30PM to get myself time to pack. Headed to bed around midnight.|
|3/7||Woke up on time. Because I saw trace of snow on the radar last night, I was expecting to see some snow on the ground but I did not. Had appointment with a mover for the estimate, so I had time to go out and take a walk. After I got the estimate, I drove to visit client, but had to come back home again to get power cord for my laptop PC... Refueled my car on the way. Had early lunch at a Mexican restaurant. Because I had my gym class starting from 7:25PM, I had to start driving back to the apartment right after the office hour. The class had a lot of practice sparring so I was pretty much out of breath, and muscles are aching. Headed to bed at 11:30PM.|

I need to go to Michigan for a business trip so I made reservations on car and hotel. It was a sunny day and the left over snow is melting at pretty good pace. I called SBC for changing the address, called Duke energy to shut the power off by 3/30. Also called DTE energy to activate electricity at my new location.|

before going to get a rental car. They had a 2007 Honda Accord which only
had 6 miles on it so I took it for the test drive. I arrived at the office
around 1:00PM, after stopping at a Burger King which is at different
location than I usually eat. Stayed at office until 6:30PM, and went to a
Japanese restaurant with 30 more other Japanese staffs. The party finished
around 10:00PM, and I went to the hotel straight to get some rest.
2007 Honda Accord
|3/10||Woke up at 6:30am, worked out for about half
hour before grabbing breakfast. Left the place and stopped by Best Buy to
buy a new home phone. My current one does not have speaker phone function so
I needed that feature. I used my $40 off coupon on it. Stopped by
Mr. Pita for lunch, and began driving
back to Indianapolis. I stopped at The
Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum to see a bunch of classic cars. It was
pretty much educational for me. Come back to Indy by 5:00PM, returned the
car and headed back to home. Took evening easy because I was pretty tired. I
called home in Japan in the evening. My mom was not there so I talked with
my dad for about half hour.

Woke up at 6:00am, but did not wake up again until 7:30am. I arrived to the work late, thanks to the all hard work this week. Went to a Japanese restaurant with bunch of other coworkers for the lunch. Left office around 2:00PM to start driving back to Indianapolis. I have come back to home after 7:00PM too tired so I did not do anything for the evening so with hesitation, I went to McDonald's for the dinner. Took care mails and other stuffs, then going to bed before 10:00PM. Called an electric power company to shut it off.
|3/17||Woke up at 7:30am, I am glad I had enough sleep
for the first time this week. It was cold again so the surface of water pond in front
of my apartment was frozen again. Went to gym in the morning then a post
office, hair cut and carwash. I even had a chance to take a walk in the
outside. I just appreciate having a weekend day.
I called Verizon Wireless, my cell phone service provider, and found out that the new phone which was supposed to be here by now, was deliver to a dormitory of Wichita State instead. I am getting a replacement soon but I wonder of two problems. One, the Verizon still have my old address for shipping, although I updated my billing address. Two, the apartment at school signed off the package without checking if the person still live or not. Oh well.
I also called the web hosting service for my site, and have my space and bandwidth upgraded from 800MB, 4GB to 200GB, 2,000GB for the same price.
In the evening, I did laundry to wash my ski cloths and cleaning and packing for the move. Called home before going to bed. It's hard to adjust the time for the daylight saving time...
Almost the last day of living in this apartment
|3/18||Woke up at 8:15am. I had another long sleep. The
temperature was 25F when I checked on online but went up to 40F in the
afternoon and wind was calm so I did not feel it was that cold. I went to
grocery shopping in the morning for the last time here. Had sub sandwich and
fajita corn for lunch which I both bought at Meijer. I spent afternoon
organizing my stuffs, taking walk in Monon Trail for 6 miles. I found Cooked
Japanese seasoned rice for dinner. Going to bed around 11:00PM
I spent a lot of time at this trail, even trained for marathons
|3/19||Woke up at 6:00am but I guess the morning was a bit chilly, I did not get out until 7:00am (or simply I did not feel too well). Since I could hear sound of thunder, the first thing I did was to apply Rain-X on the windows of the car before eating breakfast. Rain began falling around 8:00am and On/Off for a while. The rain stopped by noon. I come home around 7:00PM and had dinner before heading to the gym. Come home, took shower, relaxed for a while but still needed to keep up with the company assignments. Going to bed by midnight.|
|3/20||Woke up at 6:00am but could not wake up again until 7:00am like yesterday. I must be quite sleepy. Went to the office and worked on the assignments. Ate lunch which I prepared. I still need to eat more stuffs in the fridge to clear up. However, it does not mean I can eat more, which will result in gaining a lot of weight... It was not a bad day at all. Just busy until midnight for company assignments.|
|3/21||I did not wake up until 7:30am. Oops. I did a short stretching then headed out to stop by a bank before going to work. I needed to make a money order to check in the apartment on Friday. I ate my lunch at subway, and saw a family eating at a table nearby. When one of the kid stood up, he make the chair fell backward and made a big sound. The father did not yell and simply stood up and replaced the chair. I think he took care of the things in very good manner. I was expecting him yelling at the kid, though. I learned something today. Spent evening at a gym the last class there before move. I sent them a bunch of tulips and they liked my gift. I had to go to Meijer in the midnight to buy some boxes for the move. Ah... I just want to get done with it soon! Going to bed late. I am sure I will wake up late again.|
|3/22||Woke up around 6:30am, better than last couple
of days. I went to outside to take a walk before heading to work but I had
to work at home for about a couple of hours since there were something
urgent. Went to work in a stormy weather. Spent whole day there but decided
to head back since I have not finished packing. Come home around 5:30PM, the
rain has stopped by then. Expecting some more over night. Going to bed
around 11:30PM. It's going to be a hectic three days!

Woke up on time at 6:00am. stretched my body and checked the weather on the internet. I was hoping to get the cloudy sky instead of rainy one. At 9:30am, the moving guys arrived and loading was all done by 10:15am, began driving in rainy weather, I prepared a meal last night so I drove without making a stop. I got to the new location around 2:30PM, and finished with paperwork. The truck did not arrive until 4:00PM, but all done by 5:00PM. I drove to the office around 6:30PM to drop off some of stuffs before Monday the headed to get some dinner. The first place I went was totally packed so I decided not to, so I had dinner at Bennigen's. I always wanted to try on their BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger Pita.

Arrived my old apartment around 4:00PM, I tried to go out and walk but the rain cloud was already reached to Carmel, so I was just cleaning the room, I did not have much things to do in the evening but at the same, I did not have anything left at home already. Went to bed around midnight.|

I went to outside for a morning walk, very much for the last time at Carmel. I went up to the 146th street and come back, took shower, clean the bathroom. I had to go to Meijer because I did not have few things needed. Come back, had lunch and began loading my personal belongings. The temperature was rising and expecting the high of 80F, so I was sweating during the work. Finish loading, stopped by at the office to returned the keys, start driving around 1:15PM.
