Hey guys! Welcome back. I hope you all had a great week and an even better weekend. It seems things over here are finally starting to calm down. One of my roommates is pretty much completely moved out so the apartment is feeling a bit empty, but that’s just an excuse to go find some things to fill the space. This week has been pretty slow. There wasn’t too much going on, but I do have a few fun things to share. This might be a short one, but next week is a big week with more going on so I will have more to share with you then. But for now, let’s get into this one.
Since one of my roommates was moving out this past week we took the opportunity to do some cleaning as well. There was a lot of deep cleaning, especially in the kitchen. So much of what was in the living room and kitchen is gone, so it still feels a bit weird walking out there and seeing it so bare. But I do have a few really fun ideas on how I can add some stuff to the walls to make it feel a bit more cozy again. All of that will be coming over the next few weeks though. I’m not trying to do it all at once or anything.
I do have a few little updates that I thought I would share in this post. The first is an answer to a question a lot of you have been asking. A couple of months ago I mentioned that my job had changed pretty drastically and they added a lot more work for us. And many of you have been asking if I got a raise. In the beginning they told us they weren’t giving us a raise and we all kind of made our peace with that. But this past Monday they announced that we are getting a raise and it’s a pretty big one. It will $2.50 more an hour from what we were making which is big especially considering we thought we weren’t getting one.
Another thing is that I will be getting new roommates. Two of the rooms in my apartment will be empty so they will likely be filled up. They won’t be moving in until mid-August though which is when I moved in last year. I’m excited and nervous at the same time because I don’t know who they will be or what they will be like. I have always gotten really lucky with roommates though so I’m hoping this will be a similar situation and that it will be fine. We still have a little bit before we really have to worry about that though.
And I thought I would wrap this up with a little reminder that self care is important. I do at least one self care night a week and this week mine was on Wednesday. It’s always nice to take a little time for myself and just relax. I also wrapped up my class this week and the new one doesn’t start until next week. So I have a week off from having to worry about assignments and papers. Also, my birthday is this week so that’s exciting. It will be a week full of as much self care and relaxation as possible since it all worked out this way.
But that is my week in a nutshell. There wasn’t really too much going on in terms of excitement or big plans, but it was still a pretty great week. I’m really looking forward to the next few weeks though because I have some really fun things planned and a really big announcement coming soon. Thank you so much for stopping by! I really hope you enjoyed this. Please like it if you did. Let us know in the comments if you had anything fun or exciting happen this week.
