Hello, hello! I have been a bit of a ghost lately, I know…not a lotta writing, not a lotta tweets. But, it’s for a good reason! No, I wasn’t taking a two week long depression nap this time, I was caught up…MOVING!!!
Yup, I finally got to move into my own apartment with my boyfriend! This is something we’ve been working towards for a while now, and it’s super exciting. It’s also super hectic, because we keep needing to run out to the store and buy things for the apartment. Like, for example, I went to make dinner last night and realized we hadn’t bought a knife set, so I had to chop up onions with a butter knife. Which didn’t go as badly as I expected, surprisingly!
We don’t have any furniture right now, so the living room is a hot mess. It feels weird, like I’m in a guest room and not actually in my own home. We haven’t moved a mattress in yet, so we’ve been sleeping on an air mattress, which really adds to the guest room feel.
I do have my pet lizard, Ice-T, moved in though! Look at her, all confused and with her blind eye to the camera. The poor gal is half blind and overweight, but we love her anyways. She didn’t really appreciate the moving process, though…but now she’s nice and settled.
In other news, I’m also going on “vacation” to the wondrous land of…middle of nowhere Louisiana. There’s a big family reunion going on, so I’m headed down to visit for a week. It should be fun, even though the town they’re in solely consists of a Popeye’s and a super Wal-Mart. It’s like, an extremely Louisiana part of Louisiana. Like, they have pig wrasslin’ competitions in the summertime. My grandma’s neighbors always make fun of us and calls us Yankees. It’s weird. But I’ll see some cousins I haven’t seen in a while, so it’ll be a hoot and a holler anyways.
Basically, I’m updating to say that I still probably won’t be updating for a hot sec, because life is coming in HARD and FAST over here. Whatcha gonna do? But, when the dust settles from the chaos moving and family reunion, I’m going to be back in full force. There are a lot of art/writing/video/etc. projects that I’ve been planning to do for a long time now, and I had a sort of tacit agreement with myself that I would start working on them once I had my own space. So, once I have more in here than an air mattress, the productivity party is (hopefully) getting started! Yahoo!
I hope y’all are having a good start to spring, and don’t you worry – I watched a lot of anime this season, and WILL have a Best Eyebrows List prepared when I get back. 🙂
