Where I’ve Been Lately | Life Update June 2019

Where I’ve Been Lately | Life Update June 2019

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.…

2018 Year in Review & Looking Forward

2018 Year in Review & Looking Forward

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.…

Life Lately | November 2018

Life Lately | November 2018

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.…

Life Lately | October 2018

Life Lately | October 2018

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.…

Life Lately | August 2018

Life Lately | August 2018

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.…

Life Lately | July 2018

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.…

My Week in Review

This last week, I’ve been touring various apartments both in downtown Minneapolis and out in the suburbs. And I grew up out of the city in the suburbs… and it’s going to stay like that.…

My Week in Review

My Week in Review

This last weekend I babysat my cousins two daughters. Now I didn't spend any of my teenage years babysitting like most people. There were no kids in my neighborhood, all my cousins may be older but they were in college, and my mom's friends didn't have kids. So there was no one to babysit and back then there wasn't an online site to offer your services. Now I took the course back then but I just never did anything with that certificate. So babysitting is a bit new to me. I've babysat one of girls before when she was one and a half... but never two. So this past weekend was a first. One of them is three and a half & the other is one and a few months. It was a lot of fun but my goodness are they a handful especially at bedtime. One had a cold and was teething so she was not happy about bed time, while the other was missing her parents and couldn't sleep with her sister crying in the other room. Luckily, we managed to get them to fall asleep.…
