So, Adrian and I have discussed things, and worked out that it’s going to be cheaper for both of us for us not to share a house together.


The main reason for this is because I have geographical limitations, and he doesn’t. I work in Brunswick and don’t have a car, so anywhere I live needs to have good access to Public Transport that allows me an easy access to work. This means the preferred areas are anywhere along the Upfield train, or along the 1, 8, or 19 trams.


The problem with this is they are old established areas, and tend to be expensive. This means our options for renting are an old place, which means it’s probably not been well maintained (because it’s a rental) which will be basically swapping the problems with this place for problems in another place; or a new place that will be too small, or too expensive.



However, I can get a one-bedroom apartment near work that would end up costing me about the same or less than I pay here (once other costs are factored in), and Adrian can get a different housemate and move further out for less, as all he needs is access to the city.


So, that’s basically what we’ve decided to do.


The problem? I own far too much stuff, and I really need to get rid of most of it. So, I will be getting rid of a lot of furniture over the next short while, most of it for the nominal fee of “you want it, you move it”.


And to be honest, even if I wasn’t moving into a one bedroom apartment, I probably should be getting rid of all of the excess crap anyway.


Wish me luck! (Any and all help gratefully appreciated).

I may need to buy a new desk, as the current ones I have are fairly large. Even if I don’t, I won’t have the room for three desks, so two of them will be going.


I have two desks that are 75cm x 180cm, plus one that’s 90cm x 155cm.  If I do keep one of the desks it will be one of the 75×180 cm ones.


I also have loads of bookcases and similar things. I probably won’t be sure on what bookcases I’m getting rid off until all of them are moved and I know what wall space I have, but there are two that I definitely want to offload. These two are in two pieces of 90cm each high, for a total of 180cm each. The bottom half is about 44cm deep, and the top half is your standard bookcase depth of about 20cm.  They’re each about 90cm wide in white laminated particle board.


I have a large 3-drawer metal filing cabinet (50cm wide, 65cm deep, 100cm tall) that I don’t think I actually need.


There’s other bits and pieces of furniture that I have that I will give Adrian (my current housemate) first dibs on. Actually, he probably has first dibs on any of this stuff as he already lives in the house with it all. :)

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams that tie two hearts that will never die
And near the flames
The shadows play in the shape of the man’s desire

This desert rose
Whose shadow bears the secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume that would torture you more than this

And now she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing’s as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
The rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Whose shadow bears the secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume that would torture you more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of hidden hearts and souls
This desert flower
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of love
