F*** Moving Out

I’m so done with all of this stress. I had a good talk with my boyfriend about it and we figure, if we fix up my place, and then just save, we’ll just buy a place when we’re ready. Our current living conditions are cheap and stable, so we might as well.

I’m not built to stress. I mean I know no one is, but I never stressed when I was younger so I’m not prepared to deal with it in the real world. The idea that my whole world can come crashing down so fast really scares me and there’s nothing I would be able to do. Because of this, I’ve changed my game plan. As I was saying before, we’re stable and cheap, this is going to be our key to success, mostly mine cause he doesn’t worry as much. Asshole.

Where I am right now, I’m paying less than someone if they were renting just a room, so that’s how I save fast. My whole “cost of living” is about $800 – $900 a month. Living in the Okanagan, that is cheap as all hell. So I’m going to keep doing this and saving up. There’s still a bit of repairs left to do, but I don’t know if I’m going to put as much effort into them as I did before. Plus, there’s two of us here. So we’re doing ok.

So For Next Year?
I guess the way it sits right now, live here and the next year I’ll move out. My dad owns a piece of my trailer, so I’ll just ask for a reimbursement on the money I’ve put into it. He can sell it or keep it from there I guess. At that point I really don’t care.

For the time being, I’m going to go through all of my stuff and pretend like I’m still moving so I can downsize. Maybe have a garage sale before it gets too cold and make a few bucks. And I think I still want a roommate. I’ve got to clean a few things so I can get that train rolling now. This also gives me time to save for a computer! Actually that’s pretty exciting, I really like really really really want a new computer. Plus England is in less than a month now, so I shouldn’t stress myself out more than I need to.

New Things I NEED For My Current Place
I have to clean up my spare room. Even if no one moves in, just having it cleaned up and painted, I could use it as an office of sorts.
Roof has a little leak on the back deck, so I should patch that before it becomes a problem.
And… There’s the storage room which is an absolute wreck right now. So I should really fix that mess.
Decor! I wanna go HARD this holiday season. And no one, and I mean it, like no one in the whole world, is going to stop me.

As For Right Now?
I’m going to have to go day by day I guess. Do my best not to overwhelm or stress myself out and continue living everyday to the fullest. Plus there’s all the saving for the computer, camera and future endeavors. Wish me luck? I guess?
I’m definitely going to keep blogging. I really enjoy this and it’s helping with my metal state. Don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere. I’ve taken enough of your day now, so as always…

Thanks for reading!
