First, a little sentiment from this morning…
i just want to get this off my chest. I’ve decided to make some big decisions in my life.
- Quit subbing at the school I’m currently with and swap to festival work until fall.
- Move into the home my brother owns, rent from him and try to fix it up along the way so he can sell it at the end of the year for a profit.
June & July:
- Have first carpal tunnel surgery don’t in June. Once I’m healed have the second done in July.
- Get my certifications to sub in Altamonte Springs so I can keep saving all of my festival money.
And somewhere in between buy a “new to me” car. I’ve forfeited my dream of having a Volvo C70 and going for a Ford Fusion maybe Hyundai Sonata. While I’m sad to see my pretty Volvo go away I’m excited to be buying my second car in cash and avoiding having a payment.
Don’t you ever wish you didn’t have to make adult choices? Sometimes I just want to hide out in a blanket fort and marathon Harry Potter.
I swear those lyrics get stuck in my head everytime I’m feeling down and hopeless. But there ISIS much truth in them. No matter how dark things may seem you can count on that sun to rise in the morning… Unless you live in Alaska, and if that’s the case I’m sorry you’re SOL. So basically I’ve moved on to the anger stage and the “I’m better than that” phase rolled up into one not so neat little package. Let’s not go there tonight.
Hold up though, I want to talk about some awesome things happening. My next fest is less than a month away and I can’t wait! This has been the longest 4 months of my life and it’s just reassured me this is what I love to do and that it’s the life I want. I may always be traveling but at some point I’ll get to where I can take the pup with me and being away from home won’t suck so bad.
Turns out my older brother still owns his house here and I’m going to rent it from him and fix it up so he and his wife can finally sell it. Looks like home improvement projects will be taking up a lot of my time and I’m okay with that. It’ll be a lot to handle bit good practice for my first home. Plus Edward, my dog, will have a backyard to run around in. Plus I won’t live so far from my friends or siblings and with a mall 5 min away what else can a girl ask for?
So, lots of changes. A new house with tons of home improvements needed and more time on the road this fall. So far 1 show in April, 3 in October, 1 in November and 2 in December. Plus rumors of two more but we’ll see a girl can hope! I’m young, now is the time to satisfy my travel bug. (Assuming that it can be satisfied)
So basically when things look hopeless and dark and the mountain seems too big to climb just remind yourself “the sun’ll come out tomorrow.”
