Make-It Monday - Freedom

bitmoji_goalsIt's hard to feel free when you're in dire need of employment and worried about losing your home. When nearly every moment is occupied with job hunting and applications and you'd like to be doing almost anything else. These weeks have been exhausting and I haven't gotten as much writing done as I'd like to.

I now understand why the working poor doesn't chase their dreams.

They're too busy fighting to survive.

But many a self-made millionaire started there.

I had a job interview today! It felt like it went well, but who knows? They could've been more impressed with someone else. I feel good about it anyway. I think it was one of my better interviews. I should hear this week. Cross your fingers, pray, or whatever you'd like for me please and thank you!

Hopefully the tide is changing in my favour. I could really use the kind of break that is a bunch of work.

I'm making a lot of progress in cleaning my home thanks to having a friend stay over this week. Also, I discovered The Clutter Fairy. I find her videos the best. I've noticed that cleaning my home has made me feel better about my circumstances. As more of my place is put in order, I feel like more of my life is coming together.You could say I'm getting sorted.

I've even been decluttering my friends list on Facebook. That is also improving my mood.

Things are coming along with my internship. We're nearing our first shoot of the season. I'll be reaching out to the big acts this week to see if they'll talk to us. If I get one of them to come, my parents will be super jealous...

Some other exciting things are in the hopper. I'm not allowed to talk about them.

I feel freer than I did yesterday. Circumstances haven't changed and yet my mindset about them has. I think that's important.

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

ROW80 2020 R4 - GOALS

I've gotten zero writing done recently, however, I had other pressing things.  HOME As my new bed frame was due for arrival last Friday (more on this later), I hauled ass and purged a bunch more stuff from my home. I brought a full carload to donation and started loading up again. I also dealt with my old mattress, which I'm repurposing for a couch. Now, I didn't fully complete it as I haven't figured out all the pieces, but I did get it cut up appropriately and moved out of my bedroom. I'm currently sewing it back together. As for my bedroom, I was able to do a major declutter and access areas I haven't been able to in months. But that area now has bathroom stuff in it. There is more to do, but I'm really happy with my progress of late. I've cut myself numerous times on the couch project including my heel finding a tiny piece of glass, my palm finding a wayward staple, my knuckle finding who knows what, my one thumb having a run in with a box cutter, an

Catching My Breath - 2020 ROW80 R3-C6

 I've tried writing this post numerous times, but I needed a break. A long one. I've been mega stressed out and depressed, so I have been taking a little breather. I was feeling broken, but the experience has forced me to slow down and relax. I've gotten some help including medication for it and I am feeling much better. I'm feeling like myself more with each passing day. I'm sleeping better and have energy again.  I have been reducing my social media time. Especially Facebook. Actually, I enjoy Instagram much more. FITNESS I've been scooting and I'm getting back into skating. It's often hard to get out because of rain. Eventually, I want to do tricks on my skates. This skater may not be in derby anymore, but she's still a skater ;) I have a ton of plans for cross training once winter is here. I'll be hitting up outdoor rinks if they are available, but I'm also going to work on off skate skills that will help me get to doing tricks later on.
