100…99…98 Things to do (pt. ii)

I finally finished moving my worldly goods into storage. Next time I attempt this type of insanity I will build in a few weeks between the time I depart and my last day at work. I’m so tired that I’m silly.

[5] I received my last full-time paycheck on the 1st. Is anyone else terrified? Me too.
