...the tough go to bed?!
Who doesn’t want to fall asleep to Bon Iver and then start their day with more Bon Iver? All I know is it sounds amazing to me and is exactly what I’ve been doing. (I told you I was obsessed!)
I ended up canceling my plans for last night and going to bed rather early as I was not feeling well. I woke up still not feeling great. It’s the downfall of working in retail and around so many people - germs! I don’t even work on the floor anymore but it’s like once something hits one person in the store, it spreads like a wildfire! I’m not completely taken down by whatever this is, it seems to just be in this little cold stage. I hope this is as bad as it gets because I’m ready to be over it already. I’d been feeling a a little off all week (waking up stuffy, feeling extra tired and lazy, etc) but thought maybe it was allergies. Nope, it’s a cold. And skipping my plans while upsetting, I know it was best to just get some extra rest and not push it.
Now with my day off today, I hope to continue relaxing and resting so I can get back to my usual self and gain strength and energy to prepare for this move!
I’m so excited the new roommate and I got the apartment we wanted! We go to sign our lives away + lose our entire savings on Monday. Okay, so that might be a bit of an over-statement but you know what I mean. ;) Then locks get changed and we’ll be allowed to start moving in a bit early (free of charge!). While I have until mid-July, I’m definitely planning to start moving things in early. I plan to get all nerdy and map out my room just like I did with this apartment for the best possible layout and organization. I’m already excited to get settled in and optimistic about the changes ahead.
Now I just need to figure out this thing called money...I’m going to be saving about $100/month on rent plus all of my utilities will be split, which will help quite a bit. But I hate the feeling of living paycheck to paycheck and I’m over asking my ‘rents for help. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate the help and their support and willingness, but I don’t feel like I should still need it. I feel like I need to find a way to stand on my own two feet now and allow them to use their money for themselves or to fly me home to visit them. ;)
So this brings me back to my daily internal brainstorming session: How can I supplement my income? Even just a little bit without driving myself into the ground? I’d gladly welcome your ideas and advice...
