GlaDos Update and Moving In

Well, a little more than a month ago I got married. We spent Christmas with her family in Hyde Park, NY, had a second reception in Kennewick, WA and then moved to Rexburg, ID to start going to school again at BYU-I. All in all it has been very crazy planning the wedding, traveling, and moving. Hopefully now that some things have been fixed a little on the site I can get some better updates for all of you, including a re-cap of the wedding. For now, let me give a view of our apartment.

We applied to move in, thinking that the floor plan would be like this and that the sq. footage would be ~450. Barf!

Measuring the space though, it seems we only have ~335 sq. feet. I didn’t measure two of the closets, but they are extremely tiny and I’m sure don’t add another 100sq. feet. I’m a bit mad about the advertising of that really. However, the layout of the apartment is about 100 times better. The front door enters into the lving room, which is connected to the kitchen. This total space is 172 sq. feet. It works well and is way better than entering into a hallway/kitchen. The bedroom is smaller, only 126 sq. feet, which is big enough for a bed, and . . . that’s pretty much it. There is a small closet in there (which is part of that total 126 ft), and we put a dresser in there too. Finally, we have a 36 sq. foot bathroom, which is big enoug for a sink, toilet, and full size tub/shower combination. It’s pretty alright.

Move in pictures!

Bedroom, looking into bathroom. I should add that not single baseboard heater does anything. Oh well. We have blankets.

Here’s the kitchen. I’m looking in from the living room area. It’s pretty alright, way better than that floorplan. I’ve seen some of the apartments with the other floorplan and they all look, messy, no matter how they are organized.

Here are some pictures of my computer and speaker set up. The speakers sound so good, and it is something you really can’t describe.

I really do have build pics of these speakers showing how I got them to where they are. I will post them as soon as I get them. I’ll need to ask my sister to email them to me. For now, enjoy! I’ll get a youtube video up soon, if only my slow internet will get it uploaded!

    The speakers really sound great. I would definitely recommend the parts for this project to anyone who wants to do it as well. I’m trying to upload a video of the speakers to youtube, but it’s been two days and it still isn’t uploaded. Something tells me that my crappy internet in this apartment complex is blocking youtube uploads.
