I haven’t done a life update in quite some time, but considering I’ve been insanely busy to a point where I haven’t been active on social media since April, I thought I might as well do one. Especially considering I might not be back to how things used to be until August. So this life update is probably going to be insanely short, as everything boils down to three things: work, moving, and mental health.
Instead of just doing a review of everything that’s happened in my life in December, I’m going to go over my goals for 2018. To see how close I got to that goal, and look forward into the next year as I’m not going to be doing life lately anymore. I might do some more life updates every now and then but they won’t be scheduled out anymore the last day of the months.
Another month down and one left in 2018. This month has been as packed as the rest this fall and going into the winter my schedule is about to get worse. I don’t think starting next year I will be doing these life lately posts anymore. And the number of blog posts I put out are going to be a lot less at least for the first two months while I’m doing a major project for work.
Work has been hectic this month from new clients coming on to turn over with employees including positions being filled that have been empty for year of more to switching around the entire layout of the office. Oh and planning a data center migration from physical to the cloud (Azure). Something I’ve never done before, and on features that I’ve never had experience with. So a lot to figure out to make sure it goes smoothly. To say I’ve been stressed from work is an understatement. Granted I think it’s for the best and great resume builder as my boss keeps remaining us.
So this month I had to come to terms with this Harry Potter closet that I’ve been feeling like I was suffocating in. It was easier to deal with when I thought I was leaving in well August. But August has come and gone, and I’m not moving out any time soon. Enough things have happened financially mainly due to my car that I just can’t move out without going into serious debt at the moment. But staying at my mom’s house in this tiny room, at least helps me “get back onto my feet.” However, this room is driving me insane. I also think half of it is I feel like I don’t belong anywhere. I live in a closet. And my sister or mom come in all of the time to bug me… or really to see Pixie who is under my bed 9 out of 10 times. So I just don’t have my own space anymore. And it was fine in the beginning, but now I’m just losing it. Over everything. I just don’t know how much more I can stand it but at the same time, I don’t want to destroy myself where I’m starving myself because food for myself is not has high priority as gas or food for Pixie. I’m just a pickle in the middle and I hate it. So I somehow need to figure out how to adjust this Harry Potter closet into being something easier to handle where I’m not feeling like I’m just going to lose it at any moment.
This week started out with Pixie’s fifth birthday, it’s insane to think my little puppy is half way through her life or so. Which I’m kind of sad about, but she’s my best friend so it was fun to celebrate her birthday. She got to have full run of the plush toy drawer that belongs to Winnie, which was something she really loved. I also gave her a spoonful of peanut butter with her favorite treat in the middle. Which is had a lot of fun with since the peanut butter was cold from being in the fridge beforehand. And it was a little hot outside so I’m sure that made it even better.
