Stresses & Troubles

My goodness, I've been A-Wall lately.
Sorry about that (if anyone is listening?)

Anyway, life hasn't been easy around these parts lately. Hence the silence.
I can't go to school this fall because I didn't get approved for any of the loans I applied for because I own a car etc. I guess they consider my car tuition money, but I just can't sell it, you know?

So lately I've just been applying for job after job after job in the hopes that someone will take me in.
The only bright side of the situation is that I've been weather anchoring for the past 2 weeks straight so that's a little extra coin in my pocket.

I was really upset a couple of days ago when I found out school was 100% a no go, but the next day I woke up and and realized I'm going to think of this as an opportunity--not a set back. I'm going to use this opportunity to get a job that will make me happy and hopefully be able to settle into my new life a little more comfortably.

I guess being broke when you first move out tends to be a part of life anyway... and I guess you could say it's a little more fun!

Do you like my positive attitude? :)

What's Up?

Basically what my life looks lately.
Lots of wine drinking, eating delicious dinners, buying pictures to hang on the walls.. you know.
You'll have to excuse my lack of presence lately, my mind just has not been on blogging at all lately. It's been focused on more important things that I can't really talk about here. Some stresses I'm going through... just hoping it will all get sorted out soon!
Other than that, independence is great! John & I are having so much fun and are still making time to eat together at the dinner table, set a couple hours aside each night so we can finally be caught up on Game of Thrones, and go out on dates together! Mind you, it's only been a couple weeks. Fingers crossed this will stay the same!
That's all for now. :)

Moving Update

Hey Guys!
So it's day 3 of us in the new house!!! We are slowly (very slowly) making some progress. The only room that's all decorated and completed (besides a much needed paint job) is our bathroom. All the decor is brown and black and it looks fierce! We have all of our stuff put away in our kitchen but we still need to decorate it.
The day of our move, we had arranged for our couches to be delivered and unfortunately they were so monstrously big that they didn't fit down the stairs. Needless to say, I was in a really pissy mood for the rest of the day but everything happens for a reason, and now we have way better couches on their way tomorrow!  Let's just say I'm extremely excited not to sit on a futon (or have a futon in our livingroom anymore). It's better than sleeping on it though which we've been doing for the past couple of nights because we had no bedding and had yet to set up our bed frame! But that's done now too so we have a bedroom and it looks awesome! We still need end tables and decor (and that's all that will fit cuz it's mini) but I'm really, really happy.
As much as sometimes it's sort of sad that I'm not living at home anymore (I really miss my family and dogs), they're just a phone call away (and a very short drive) so it's not so bad. Plus, I'm living with John now and the privacy is amazing and we're having so much fun. Once we're all settled we're going to have our families over for a barbecue and it's going to be a really nice change.
Anyway, I gotta go because John keeps talking to me from the kitchen and then I keep forgetting what I'm wanting to write down. Plus he's making an amazing steak dinner so I best go help! Plus I'm still in my robe from my shower so I should probably get dressed. I'm allowed to do that now. No judgement.
