I’m here! In my brand new home and it’s beginning to feel right. I thought I might have a hard time feeling at home here. I thought it might be a while before I would feel as though I could really relax and be myself. I was wrong.
The showers are cold, my closet door has seen better days and the children upstairs walk like elephants. I have never been happier. I feel like this is where I was meant to be. Here in this loud little basement apartment.
Moving into this space was actually pretty fluid. My roommate and I had some great people come down to help us and it was fun getting to hang out with people while we took our lives out of boxes. My boyfriend growled at the dirt in the cupboards, we all ate delicious pizza (note: chipotle chicken and caramelized onions on a pizza are amazing), and my mom bonded with my roommates girlfriend over pot and yoga. I think it’s fair to say a good time was had by all.
I tried to remember to take some pictures for the blog but with everything happening and all the excitement I only ended up taking a few. Whoops.
Moving in with my best friend and brother has been an awesome experience. Sure it has been frustrating at times, but what move isn’t? This goon has stuck with me through thick and thin and I guess I appreciate his company or whatever…
Now being able to finally set up my room! That has been a treat! Having my work table and my bed in one place again is awesome/dangerous. I can foresee many late nights and very little sleep in my future. Now all I need are some shelves to display my
action figures CLASSY ORNAMENTS! Because I am an adult….ignore the Digimon merch.
Sitting at my desk now, everything feels right. I am comfy and at ease and I haven’t felt this relaxed in years. I know that the first few months are going to be hard, and the cold showers and loud children upstairs are going to take some getting use to, but it’s worth it for the sense of freedom I feel. Nothing in life comes easy, and nothing ever really stays easy. I think the key to being happy with what you have is to understand that and take it as is. The only time you ever really end up disappointed is when you expect more than what life can give you. As long as I remain realistic about this and understand that things will break, bills will come and stress will happen, I think I’ll be just fine in the long run.
Now, if you all don’t mind, I am starving and there is a peanut butter sandwich calling my name in my new kitchen and because I am a well adjusted adult I will go attend to that.
Very, very well adjusted…
Till next time guys, stay Tobly awesome!
I know I will.
