Today I was supposed to go to the gym…but I didn’t do it.  I went to my thesis meeting then came home and have been doing laundry and working on that.  I think I need a day to just be indoors…I have been biking and walking a lot.

I probably didn’t need to make shrimp mac n cheese tonight, but I wanted to have something comforting on a rainy cold day.  I cut up a lot of vegetables and put all of the scraps in either the stock bag or the Dirt Factory bag.  I’m going to have a whole bunch of scraps for them tomorrow!  I haven’t been for a few weeks…I hope it’s okay that it was getting kinda moldy.  I really like helping with the compost situation, it keeps my scraps out of the trash and goes to a good cause.

I’m trying to get back into swagbucks so I can earn dem giftcards!  I really need some new clothes so I’ll get back into that.

This week is good as I will get to add extra hours to my paycheck!  We’re doing a massive cleanout (um hellooo the thing I love to do most) that will take the next 2-3 weeks.  These hours don’t count towards our goal hours so I’m super pumped!  I need the extra funds.

Making My Apartment Livable

They’re showing my apartment for the first time tomorrow, so I’ve been working hard to get it looking a bit nicer because I can’t stand the thought of people judging my living space.  It’s been a good project to put everything away and finally hang some artwork!

I also started a latchhook project last night.  I know that I can’t jump into dating right now, and I probably just need to spend more time at home.  This will help with saving money and being more comfortable being on my own.  Holler.  So i have a giant backroom full of projects!  I have a few unfinished paintings, hella blank canvases, paints, collage stuff, perler beat stuff, latchhook, steampunk stuff, and quilting.  Plenty of things to keep me busy and get some creativity out.  Who knows?  Maybe I’ll have enough for an etsy shop after a few months!  Maybe…probably not…but maybe!

I also have ALL of the materials needed for all of these projects.  I don’t spend a dime!  Now if only I could get some friends to come over and craft with me!

I am bummed.  Trying to keep my mind occupied is hard, just gotta keep on trucking!

Life’s Funny That Way

Soooo in the last week or so I have become single and moved fully back into my apartment.  Things are hard, but I’ll slowly build my life back up!

I’m experimenting with a Fresh20 recipe in the crockpot tonight!  I’ll take it for lunch tomorrow and see how it was, I’m excited to cook and get back into a rhythm.  Routine is the key to recovery!

I’ve gone to the gym a few times in the last week and a half.  Tonight I went all the way to the gym only to find my zumba class was in another buidling.  Welp.  I came back home and started cleaning/decorating my apartment!  It’s more like a home now than it has in the year and a half I’ve lived here.  This is a good thing since I’m stuck here now.  I just HATE the hills coming home.  Great exercise, but exhausting!

I’m going to get my life back together.  I’m going to focus more on being a total boss at work.  I’m going to pimphand my thesis.  I’m going to eat healthy and fit into my shorts for summer!
