Wow, I have become really bad at updating this. I mentioned that on the collab channel that I share with jinxycat
) on Monday and that made me want to start updating this again. I'll be honest right now and say it's not gonna be daily. But I'll try harder!
So. What's happened to me lately? Let's see...
My job is going to be switching over to a different art gallery soon, because the one in which I work is closing for renovations in December. It's a little stress-y and frustrating because soon I won't be able to have lunch with Luis, cos I'll be a longer walk away (but it'll be okay!), but I think it's also kind of exciting. The other art gallery is bigger and typically busier. Still hoping to find a full-time job doing something more fulfilling than selling stuff in a gift shop, but I do enjoy my job. It could be much worse. And I'd rather have a job than not.
Luis is going to Brazil for work the first week of December. So that's exciting. It'll be Sunday - Saturday, so it can be book-ended by time with me, which is good. If I spent an entire week without seeing him at least once, I think I'd become unhinged. He also said we could possibly Skype while he's down there. :) The discussions about apartments continue. We're not rushing, really, but it's clear that we're gonna do it. He also got all set for a credit card, so soon he'll be establishing credit, which is always good. I'm more excited than scared about these things these days. It helps that we talk about everything. I had a panic attack the other night and Luis urged me to talk about it instead of just trying to stave it off like I usually do. It ended in tears, but I also felt better, and he didn't judge me. He comforted me. He is a quality person.
In nerdy news, I got an idea for a NaNoWriMo story! I recently read Stiff
by Mary Roach, as well as Dead Men Do Tell Tales
by William R. Maples, Ph.D. and they inspired me... It's about time I write a novel about ghosts and dead people. My NaNoWriMo novels are always pretty spooky, actually.
I can't recommend Mary Roach's books enough, by the way. I've also read Spook
and that was also great. It's also about ghosts. Hmm.
Saturday is Luis's and my 1 year and 7 months-iversary. So we're going out to dinner and watching Bonnie & Clyde
. Yay, violence and murder! We're normal people. But it will be fun. Neither of us has seen it yet. I got it on Netflix last week and the disc was cracked down the middle. So I complained and got a new one. Say what you will about Netflix, but that was a quick, great response to the problem. They didn't even wait to get the broken one back and verify before sending me a replacement. I tested this one to make sure it wasn't broken and actually plays, too. I should probably do that next time I plan a movie night with Luis. XD D'oh.
I hope all of you are well! ♥ Thank you for sticking with me, if you've stuck with me!
