So, life has been crazy. In order to fix this, I upped and moved. Seriously. I had to get away from The Drama(tm). I made some serious changes. The largest of which is going back to school. And not just taking a couple of classes while still working at the credit union and living at home, but moving across the state to School #4 (Mass College of Liberal Arts) as a full-time student and on-campus resident. It’s a big and very scary change, but one I seriously needed to do. I’m all moved in, met the roommates, who seem nice if a little cliquish.
See the bedspread, it’s a duvet cover I made myself!
Yea. I am now about five minutes from my bff Rachel too, which is a huge perk! Other major changes include some serious therapy that has been life-changing. I realized that I am soooo much stronger than I ever thought I was capable of being. I’ve learned that as weak as I sometimes think it is, I am the victim of some serious shit and some crappy parenting. I don’t have to be the care-taker and don’t have to fix everything. It’s not my job. My job is to be a young adult, discover and take care of myself, even though it feels a little selfish.
The other changes are a little superficial, but still pretty fun. I’ve lost 20 pounds. I put purple in my hair (which has already faded, but I’m gonna redo it soon). I’ve left my job at the bank so now I’m in super-cute jeans (two sizes smaller than I used to wear, woot!), my nose ring is always in and my tattoos aren’t covered up. I have a bit more free time than I’m used to, but that will probably change when classes start tomorrow. I dunno, I’ve started just taking care of myself in general, a definite good thing. Although, I really need to find a new part-time gig, my finds are running a bit low and I have bills to pay. I made a contact at the LYS though. The owner was a sweetheart and I asked if they needed any help and she took my number. It’s a bit of a drive, but its a start.
Well, I guess that’s it. I’m going to try to blog more often. No promises, but I’ll try.
Oh, I’ve also learned that I am a steampunk-wannabe.
