How to Get Settled

Since I am the expert on re-locating here are the steps for settling into a place quickly:

1. Walk around your neighborhood and get a lay of the land
2. Open a bank account
3. Setup up a cell phone number and alert your friends
4. Make phone/skype dates with friends
5. Join the library, search their free pamphlets for helpful tidbits about the area
6. Find a place to practice yoga
7. Discover closest healthy grocery store
8. Take the bus around
9. Setup wireless network
10. Don't hide in your house

Reflecting back on my various moves these have been the most helpful steps. Today I joined the library and instantly felt at home.
