March has been a pretty crazy month and there’s been so much to talk about but I haven’t been feeling so inspired to write a lot lately. I’m not sure why. I feel like it’s taken me this month to really get in the groove of both my schedules and get on top of my finances. This last week I’ve finally felt like I’m in that space. My body has adjusted to my crazy sleep schedule somewhat and I really feel like I can be on top of all the other things in my life too. It feels good. I budget my money each week, I buy groceries to make myself lunches for work, I keep up on my laundry and am paying my bills on time.
The pieces have all fallen into place. It puts a smile on my face just thinking about it. I can’t help but feel like I’m in a place in my life that I’ve always wanted to be in. I’ve never had my own apartment or payed rent or utilities and such. Now I do all those things and it feels so…natural and comfortable. Like I’m really taking care of myself in a way I’ve been needing to. Like I’m….dare I say it….an adult(ish)??!! Sure I’ve been paying bills since I got my first job at 16 but this is different. I’ve turned into a bit of a different person since moving here. I cook. Not just microwaving some ramen (although it is still a staple at times) but actually using the stove! And I’m not even that bad at it either. My roommate hasn’t died yet so that’s gotta be a good thing!
The only part of my life that hasn’t been nurtured lately is my crafty side. I haven’t knitted in over a month and I feel pretty sad about it. It just seems that when I do have free time I’m either resting or cleaning or catching up on something else. My craftiness is obviously a huge part of me so I know I need to find a way to start making time for it too. I know I can’t be all work and no play. That’s not my bag baby!
On another super exciting note, my Justin Madison Walker will be here in three days! It’s been over a year since his brothers wedding which means it’s been over a year since we’ve seen each other. No bueno. So obviously I’m thrilled that not only will he be here for a week but I will be going to Alabama for his sisters wedding at the end of May as well. Everything is just better when he’s around so I’m hoping these couple days fly by as quickly as possible.
SO hopefully these feelings of settling-ness will mean more writing here. I did turn 26 somewhere in the last month and it was a pretty great time so I plan on sharing all about it soon.
