I've found something to make the apartment seem a little less lonely. It helps to have random noise in the background. At my old apartment i used to have the tv running on random channels (usually the Comedy Channel, or History Channel or Cartoon Network) but there's no cable or antena here. So i've started putting on movies when i get home from work. New movies/anime require too much focus for me to get anything else done, so i've been using movies that i've already seen several times.

Yesterday i watched The Fifth Element, today was Titan A.E., which i actually watched twice, once normally, once with the director's commentary turned on. Comedies and action movies seem to work well as distractions. I don't want anything too serious or sad or anything like that. Unfortunatly i think i may start running out of such movies fairly soon, especially since about half the stuff i've got is on tape and i don't have a VCR hooked up at the moment.
