I did some of that today!
Making life awesome all day, erry day.
So today my mom and I were captain productive and I got my new driver’s license ordered (complete with a new, non-15-year-old-Kathy photo). All I need is a fabulous new wallet to put it in when it arrives and I’ll basically be back to normal!
I would kind of love to be able to put the fabulous new wallet in a fabulous new bag, too. Perhaps this one:
I’m a little bit in love with it. But it’s lots of moneys that I don’t exactly have to be spending on a purse right now, so we shall see.
Overall feeling randomly lovely, which I’m not going to complain about. (This is likely because the weather has suddenly decided to be shamelessly sunny and breathe-your-lungs-full-of-air springy). Last night, after a rather shitty but super fun turn at a beer pong tournament, I came home and did a lot of thinking about the future. Sometimes my single-mindedness makes me forget that really, I can do whatever I want right now. I don’t have to go to England. I imagined up for myself a future of traveling around here, maybe picking a different American city and just running with it, and to be honest, it wasn’t the worst future in the world. I’m sure it would be awesome. But even picturing it, there was this feeling that it was wrong. Because I don’t want to make my future here. I want to be in England.
That really sucks in a lot of ways, because I have amazing friends and family here that, well, will be a lot harder to stay in touch with from five thousand miles away. For that I am immeasurably thankful for modern technology - but still. It sucks a bit.
So I compromise by telling myself that California isn’t going anywhere, and neither is my citizenship, so I can always come back if I decide England’s not the thing. I have no idea why I’m just blathering on right now about all of this, but there you have it anyway.
ALSO. Really want to get my arm done. Now that is a tattoo I will definitely wait on my first published novel for. Don’t want to commit to something so sleeve-ish this early on in the game.
Okay, out of random thoughts. Ta-ra for now!
Between the two jobs I now have, I’ll be clocking in a rather fabulous 47.5 hours this week. Since I love money and having stuff to do, this is most definitely a good thing.
All of the things I want out of life right now are completely within my power to achieve. So now I need to get my shit together, sort out my busy money-making schedule, and do what I need to do to meet all of my goals.
Said goals include but are not limited to:
- Eating healthily even after Lent ends (I’ve given up cookies, cake, candy, chocolate, fast food, deep-fried food, soda, and meat)
- For once in my life actually maintaining some sort of work-out schedule so I can have a confident summer at the beach
- Writing my book
- Staying as positive as the past few days have managed to make me
- Earning shit-tons of money and buy my tickets soon
Like I say, there’s a lot more I want to accomplish, but I think the above five bullet points are a pretty solid start.
Something else that’s really great about life right now: my promotion to a department head has reminded me of what a capable individual I am. I am a kick-ass authoritative figure that can handle far more shit than my last few jobs have required of me, and it’s refreshing to actually have important responsibilities. Not to mention I’ll finally have something worth mentioning on my resume. Yes, I like to think that this whole writing gig is going to work out for me in the long run, but until then, this chick’s got bills to pay, and a handily fucking awesome resume will go far in doing so.
And that’s all I got for now party people. Time to listen to some jams and write a bunch of words.
