Nails and Decaf Coffee



Did my nails tonight, I started doing them again recently.  I used to be into makeup and stuff like that but I got to the point where I didn’t really care about making myself look nice, partially due to mental health issues and also honestly laziness.  But I’m having fun getting back into this stuff 🙂

My interview at the apartment complex I’m trying to get into went well.  The apartments are absolutely gorgeous! I was amazed.  I’m hoping there’s an opening within the next month or so, or at the least sometime this summer.  They said there may be one opening in about 3 weeks, and there’s another possibility of another one becoming available soon.  Hopefully I hear something soon.

I did the unthinkable and bought a thing of decaf coffee.  While I’m typing this at 9pm I’m currently drinking a 12 oz regular caffeine content coffee, haha, so I’m not sure how this is going to go.  I just love the rush from caffeine.  I wanted the decaf so if I’m craving coffee I can just have one of those instead of drinking tons of regular coffee everyday.  My goal is to only have a regular coffee every once in awhile for a treat and stick to decaf for most of the time.  I already drink a lot of water, that’s basically all I drink aside from coffee which I generally drink black to keep from the additional calories from sugar and creamer.

I’m hoping to get a part time job this summer or at the latest in the fall.  I’m kind of waiting on hearing about the apartment availability thing though because I don’t want to add too much stress at once.  Ideally, I’d like to be moved in then work towards getting a part time job.  It may not work out that way but I’ll just have to see how things go.


Hope you all are doing well, thanks for reading!

Moving, Books, and Better Motivation

I might be moving this summer into a new apartment.  Have an interview and building tour this Friday at the place I applied to.  I’m very excited.  The thought of moving is stressful but it will be a nice fresh start.   It would be much better for me financially.  My only concern is getting the cats there, they allow cats but physically getting them there is the problem.  They won’t get in their crates,  and I honestly don’t blame them.  It was a total nightmare trying to move them across like 4 states several years ago in a car. I’m going to try and get them one of those nice travel things.  The good thing is the new place would only be like a 5 minute drive from where I currently live, so worst case scenario I would just have to put them on my lap in the car on the way there 2 trips at a time.

I’m a month into my eating disorder recovery, really proud of myself.  Never thought I’d make it this far after so many years of struggling.  My mood has been great, and I’ve been doing things I enjoy.  Reading a lot, drawing/coloring, playing games, learning Italian.  I’m wanting to cut back on caffeine, I had like 6 or 7 cups yesterday….I’m trying to cut back a little at a time.  Bought a Yoga/Pilates book and am definitely excited about trying out that.

Right now I’m reading a book by Debbie Macomber (one of her Christmas stories)  I always like reading holiday stories in the summer because I can’t stand the heat so I pretend it’s winter/Christmastime 🙂 The next book I plan on reading is Mother Teresa; A Complete Authorized Biography by Kathryn Spink.  🙂
