After a week of contemplation, I have made the decision to renew my blog for one more year. Mostly because I need an outlet and I was/am unsure of what to rebrand to. Also, despite the fact that some things have fallen into place (and some things definitely have) my life is still very much in crisis mode.
Seriously. It’s a fight to keep myself from dying, chopping off my hair AND cutting bangs.
I am still considering changing my name and running away to The Maldives to live on the beach. Actually, I think that plan will probably stay fresh in my mind for as long as it takes me to actually get to The Maldives. Perhaps there is something simple I could do there for work to sustain the simple beach life I desire.
In other news: my little brother is currently on baby-watch. His other-half could go into labour with their second child any hour now. She’s two days past her due date.
In other, other news: my baby brother has been keeping a secret that he and his other-half will be having their second child in just three months.
Babies, babies everywhere.
Okay, I should really get back to work.
I got my package. It was misdelivered to Smith Court and the woman who found it on her doorstep brought it to my house.
I got a raise. And… a promotion? Not really a promotion. Just more responsibilities and will get more money for it. I understand that’s kind of the definition of a promotion… it’s a weird grey area. It’s not a promotion. I think my boss realized that I might have been looking for something new and they wanted to add a little something extra to try and keep me around.
I bought a Christmas tree and I’m going to decorate it. This is a big deal for me because (with the exception of the time spent at my parents house in 2019, the first few months of 2020) I’ve lived on my own since I was 16 and I never bothered to invest in a Christmas tree before. I’m going to this year. This pandemic ain’t going to stop me from celebrating the holiday in the simplest, most special way… exactly how I want.
I’m considering adding a four legged fluff-ball to my life. I’m on the hunt for a small dog. My place just isn’t large enough for a large dog, it wouldn’t be fair to keep them here. But a small dog, I think they could fit in well in this house.
I have a meeting tomorrow with someone who’s looking for someone to design work done for their website. I genuinely don’t know if I have the time too. But, I think that’s a nice problem to have. I’m too ‘in demand’, I can’t help everyone. Okay, that sounds a little too cocky and I didn’t mean it to be that way. I just think it’s a good problem to be too busy. It’s nice when people come to you.
Now if only I could get paid money to just watch movies. That would be an ideal life. I used to say I wanted to paid to travel the world, but at the moment I don’t think that would be too fruitful.
I think I spent too much money on Christmas presents. I need to stay home for the next 10 days and not spend money. Whoops. Good thing it’s -20 outside and snowy. I don’t feel like going anywhere. And, I guess it’s a good thing my Christmas shopping is done. Mad props to companies offering free delivery this year because of the pandemic. That is forward thinking business.
Stay safe, stay healthy and stay sane.
