After discussing it with my mom more, she said she would allow my guy friends to fix the basement into an apartment. We’re going to put up walls that separate a small portion for the washer, dryer n some storage space left for the family but most of it will be walled off so that I have privacy.
Were putting down a tile that will make it look like wooden floors, repainting the walls, rearranging furniture and furnishing it with my stuff. The basement has 2 separate entrances from the rest of the house, a bathroom&sink, a fridge thats mine now, and we’re going to add a microwave n portable stovetop.
We’re going to make my uncle’s old work station my bedroom and put up a wall of curtains with decorative christmas lights. We’re adding a kitchen table with all the kitchen appliances nearby, a mini bar to section that off from the “game area.” The game area will include an air hockey table, foozball table, small table for board games, etc. Then theres a living room space with sofa beds, tv, n coffee table.
I should be starting as a manager somewhere new soon and I’ll be making pretty decent money. My mom wants me to live in the house for 6months once I start the job, save n then move out. Besides creative a secluded part of the house, our other compromise was that I am allowed to get my own puppy.
I showed my mom the breed I want—australian shepherd and she approved. So once the basement is done, that will be happening!! I am so excited to finally have a puppy. My dad said it’d be his birthday gift to me. September can’t come fast enough.
Once I know what my school & work schedule look like combined, I’m going to start taking boxing lessons. I have always wanted to learn boxing but my mom never allowed it and then I was too busy, but at this point I’ll find the time for it. I want to do something active that will help me get in shape n release some aggression. In time, I’d like to learn sword fighting too but that wont be for a while.
I have been associating with people older than me lately. Its been refreshing. People who know what they want. Its what I need to surround myself with. I have had too many friends and bfs who were indecisive, unsure of what they wanted or what was important to them, etc. I am the opposite, I have always known what I wanted and I am very decisive. And one of my friends pointed out that this difference, between me and them, is what probably lead to issues.
Friend wise, I am pretty solid with people right now though I am hoping to get better acquainted with the older additions. And become close friends with more older people. When I say older, I mean 27+.
Dating wise, I am staying single for a while. I need to focus on myself without worrying about anyone elses feelings because I tend to care more about other peoples feelings than my own. I still am getting over my ex, and its a rocky road. A lot smoother than any other time, but I am definitely not ready to be anyone’s gf again. I still have too many feelings I need to find a way to lose/get rid of. Its been nice getting to know people though.
Tomorrow, I’m throwing a party at Jon’s house because its the first saturday I’m not working til 3am in a long time. And I feel like drinking with my friends. I’m going to get dressed up and take pictures with everyone. I’m really looking forward to seeing a bunch of people. I think this will be really good for me too.
Next month, we’re doing the new hope picnic and I really can’t wait.
Well back to work, it was nice while it was dead here lol.
