So, it's been a busy month and I've been hard at work doing things to get further into my future.
About a week ago, I moved out of my family home and moved into an apartment with a roommate. Things have been going relatively well considering we are still working on getting things for the place.
I took advantage of a tag sale going on at work and they marked down a lot of Pioneer Woman items to $1 and some were even 50 cents...as many of us at work know; Pioneer Woman is a very expensive brand... I bought some items for our kitchen and now it's starting to look beautiful... I have several pieces and such for our dining table when we get around to making that purchase.
I've already contacted a woman nearby about purchasing two end tables and an entertainment center from her and she was kind enough to sell it to me altogether for just $120 which is a great deal considering $120 is only 1/3 of the cost of just the entertainment center alone usually. She's even holding it for me until my next check and will deliver them to us.
The other day I had dropped my phone (which I absolutely love and I refuse to buy anything newer because it is still quite a beast) and I had to email support and order a replacement device. I had a bit of a hiccup at first with the replacement device but through research I eventually solved my own problem with it and now it's like having a new phone all over again and it's setup to my liking.
My parents miss me of course considering that I no longer live with them but this new found freedom of sharing a place with someone is pretty dope and I like the feeling of having my own space and being able to do what I want to do with everything.
The bill costs are actually pretty reasonable and surprisingly; we both will have money to play with after paying the bills - the best part of the entire rental is that water and trash are included in the rent cost already.... free water and trash? um, hell yea please :)
Overall, things have been pretty good... though my roommate has been battling a sickness all week; he'll eventually get the grasp of handling it and regulating things to make himself feel better
The only downfall is that work has been kicking my ass and I've missed school for a week or so... which means extra work to do but I will get around to it as soon as I have the sleep pattern back to the way it needs to be. I hate working 6 days straight and only getting one day off in between another set of 6 days but hey, one must do what they can to pay bills and have food to eat at night.
Well, I hope everyone is doing well and ready to take on the coming holidays... I know I'm excited for what's to come and I can't wait to add more wonderful decor to my new home.... it's about time :)
