Wowowow I am so bad at keeping up with this update every Thursday thing. Admittedly, I'm super busy, leaving me super tired recently, because a lot is going on. I started to do these updates because I wanted to give everyone a peek into all of the "everything" going on in my world, so please bear with me as I get up to speed with the scheduling of everything. Apologies also for the lack of updates on my Youtube channel. Same problem, but Youtube is even harder to make time for since editing takes 3+ hours for me, and in the midst of packing, I lost my mouse, which means I'm even slower. Rest assured though, I will be uploading again after I finish moving. Anyway, here's some stuff happening in my life recently.
Movers are booked. So I'm really glad I have this done, but now I'm trying hard to not be overwhelmed by packing. I don't own that many things, but moving is just generally an intimidating process. I have to take down all my wall art and pack that safely, sort through all my belongings and decide what is and isn't worth taking with me... It doesn't sound overwhelming at all, until I look at my room and think, "nope." I'm getting boxes for my move from the liquor store across the street, which is saving me lots of money. Little things like that are helping me not get overwhelmed by everything.
I visited our apartment. My roommate moved in on the 1st (part way, just to take the first load of things in, check out the neighborhood, and be there to get our wifi set up) and I joined her after work to hang out at our new place. I love it. There are so many closets. It's hard to even get one closet in NY! We have a nice quiet neighborhood by the park and I'm so happy with the space. We had seen the apartment before with our broker, but it's totally different when you're there knowing it's yours, and planning out your new life in a great home with your best friend.
I started watching The Path on Hulu. It's not everyone's cup of tea, but it's certainly mine. It's a show about a cult that is beginning to unravel, starring Michelle Monaghan, Hugh Dancy, and Aaron Paul. It definitely earns its MA rating, so it's not for the squeamish, but the story-telling and acting are excellent. It's a very balanced show that has great pacing and makes room to really show the complexities of something as dark and complicated as life in a cult. It's riveting and challenging and I highly recommend it if you're into well-told dark narratives that explore things like family, faith, and fraud.
My two new babes from Kate Spade came in! Over the Memorial Day weekend, I decided to treat myself. I'd gotten a little bonus from work and with the move stressing me out and Memorial Day sales in full effect, I thought I'd grab a few things I'd been needing. One, a little card holder/mini wallet for going out. I'm obsessed with my full-sized Cardcaptor Sakura Wallet but it just doesn't fit in all of my purses, especially not the ones I use when I go out. So now I have this little lemonade colored cutie (#branding). I also had been in the market for a black medium-ish crossbody bag. I have a lightweight nylon pink one (also Kate Spade) that I adore, but I wanted something in a neutral and in a more formal finish for less casual looks. So I got this gorgeous number in black on the outside with pebble accent. It's leather, unlined, and pretty lightweight. It's exactly what I had been looking for and I got it for less than half price thanks to sales.
That's it for me. What's new with you?
