I can certainly understand how people generally do not sleep well couch surfing and I remember that my 44 year old bones aren’t the same as my 24 year old ones. It was easier to sleep in certain positions and places that were less comfortable but I still managed. I believe it also helped because I was tired from moving; carrying boxes and items up a flight of steps in the heat and humidity of South Florida.
With the help of some movers that my buddy paid for, we managed to get his car and the truck unloaded in an hour and a half but it was a long and tiring one. There was not even so much as a breeze while carrying the boxes so even the lightest items were still tiring. I am happy that everything made it. I got my friend’s internet and cable operational as well.
The major area provider is Spectrum, and while the speed is certainly fast, the setup certainly was not. In an attempt to make it easier for customers who are not tech-savvy, the entire setup is designed to be completed via a smartphone app. For somebody like myself who is a systems and network administrator, this actually complicated things some. I want to go straight to the setup and change the WiFi name and password but that was a no-go. I had to work through Spectrum’s interface which slowed things down considerably.
Today is actually going to be a relaxing day, so while my buddy unpacks and organizes, I think I am going to watch TV and play around on the internet. He may also send me out to pick up some supplies for him here and there. I know I am too damn tired to go to the beach today. Hell, I don’t even really want to go to the beach.
My buddy has a really nice apartment and the complex is beautiful. I guess when you earn a six figure salary, you can afford some niceities in your life. The impoverished like myself make do with what we have got. I hate capitalism. Full stop.
