Two Weeks…Twoooo Weeeeeks
Title brought to you by Total Recall, which I heard quoted approximately 364 times by my boyfriend and his brother this past weekend.
It’s been a long couple of weeks, y’all. Last weekend, my boyfriend’s brother and his girlfriend came to visit, and I’m not used to having house guests. Fortunately, they’re delightful, and thanks to ufyh, I didn’t have to spend that much time cleaning before they got here, unlike the last time I had guests when I had a half day marathon and hid most of my crap in the bedroom.
Between having visitors and going home to see my parents the week before, my routine has been thrown out of whack, I haven’t been in the most positive mindset, and I’m basically just maintaining a semi-fucked habitat. I consider this progress, though, because in the past, this is usually right about when I would give up and let the army of dirty dishes pile up in the sink and take over the kitchen. In the midst of all of this, I’ve done some small projects when I’ve had the time and felt up to it. List time!
- Moved our bed so that the light coming under the door doesn’t hit me right in the face when my boyfriend gets home from working the night shift. I sleep so much better now.
- Started setting up my office upstairs so that when the weather cools down, I have a designated workspace.
- Moved some furniture to improve/increase kitchen storage.
I have a little over two weeks until classes start up for the fall, and I have a bunch of stuff of accomplish between now and then. I still need to register for classes, which means I need to email two professors and get waivers to take their classes, since they’re outside of my degree area and have prerequisites. This is probably the only reason I haven’t already registered for classes. I hate emailing random people and asking them for favors. Most importantly of all, I’m practicing some serious self-care before this semester gets under way. Based on the past two semesters and the level of anxiety I’m feeling right now, I don’t think it’s going to be pretty.
