Stocking the Clothing Department

Advertisements

Now that the closet is painted and mostly ready to be stocked, we have to decide on racks or whatever we’re going to use to hold clothes. Since we’ve just filled and painted all the walls and rebuilt the floor, I’m not wanting to use anything that will damage what we’ve done. And even though I found a scuff mark today, I’m not going to make things worse.

My lovely roommate happens to have a clothing rack that I really like. The aesthetics of it are just dreamy, and match the room really well. That and a cute little stool thing that Shadow has been using as a pedestal. Plus a massive mirror, this room is going to be easily the prettiest room in my place.

So I’ve decided to buy another of those racks. We have three of them now. With those and a couple mirrors, we almost have a full closet! I’m going to look a couple rugs possibly, and we need some more fairy lights. You can never have too many fairy lights.

One day I’ll finish the baseboards. Promise

I want to find a little table for a makeup tray, not that I ever wear makeup, but because I have too much of it and need a place to put it all. And because I want to invest into learning makeup, I’m thinking of building a spot for it all if I have to. the bathroom is just down the hall, so I could just suck it up and put shit away like a normal person.

Mostly in there is clothing we don’t wear one a regular basis, like party dresses and large heeled shoes. I have a blazer and matching dress pants that I’ve hung in there and I need an excuse to wear that somewhere. I also have a few full length dresses coming in that I’m going to put on display in there.

Now that the room is basically empty and usable, we’ve been putting stuff in it again, and I’m going to spend some of my free time cleaning that today. Mirror placement is going to be a big deal for the future of that room, and with stuff everywhere, it just needs to be organized. And hopefully once my packages come in, it’ll be extra clean and decorated. There are probably a million different things I could do in that room, let’s see what I pick!

Once I start my Fabulous Fridays I’ll make sure to show off the closet in it’s finished state. But for now that’s all I’ve got. Thank you all so much! Be safe out there, and have a good day!

Rough News

Advertisements

I got bullied into giving up my position at the Adult Store. I don’t know what I did, but honestly there’s not a lot I can do about it. With that, I spent an unholy amount of time writing up a hefty Patreon post with a rough idea on what I’m going to do now. What’s my Patreon you ask, well it’s the only thing with the same name as my website!
Because I’m me, I figured I’d write out what I said again so if you want the extended version, which you probably don’t, it’s here. 

With having so much more free time on my hands, I’ve decided I’m going to invest that into my blog, my writing, and my photography. My website could use and expansion, and I could stand to learn some tips on handling this sucker better. There are probably a trillion different resources out there too, so I’m good.

Graffiti out the Wazoo

I mostly want to do this more, so I’ve planned out some scheduling updates and future plans. They’re not bad, I promise. It’s just more of me. 
Right now, I just post something on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s. I have my closet almost finished, so why not do something fun with fashion? It won’t always be me playing dress-up, because I like looking at what’s new and different trends, so I figured something like “Fashion Friday”. Maybe even throw in my attempts at learning makeup into that and I’ll be ready to go!
I also really enjoy gaming, and with having nothing to do all weekend, Monday GameDay is what I’m thinking. That gives me two days to try something new, or invest time into something I really enjoy. Plus I can buy Turnips on Sunday so… But yeah, some schedule updates for the near future. I say the near future, but I have a few more things I have to still do.

My writing and photography skills are not of legend, but that doesn’t mean I should give up on them. I’m going to take the time to hopefully finish a draft or two of my novel this year, and buy a camera. For those who are curious, since my last novel update I’ve written maybe three words. It’s rough I know. And with photography, I live in such a beautiful place, I would live to show it to the world. Even if I don’t buy a camera right away, my phone does a really good job.

I want to grow who I am on the internet and as a person. With that, I need help. I know not everyone has the money to spare, so please, follow my social media, comment on stuff, and share who I am with people you know. I’m always around and I really enjoy everything that has come out of this hobby I started almost year ago now.
I appreciate all of you, and I cannot say that enough. Without you, I wouldn’t have made it this far. You mean a lot to me, and I hope you all are safe and well right now.

Some Good Boys

I know I say it a lot, but thank you so much for stopping by today. Be safe!

Garden Expansions

Advertisements

The other end of town has an amazing nursery that I occasionally give ungodly amounts of money to. Dad and I went recently and I bought some new additions to my vegetable problem. Lettuce, onions, tomatoes and some herbs again are all in need of homes around my property. Although I have a feeling I’m going to plant most of them in pots so I can bring them when I move.

So, it’s been a couple days and I’m worried I have become addicted to attempting to garden. I’ve bought in the past couple days way too many plants. Here’s the list;

A beautiful couple of flowers, left to right are a mini rose in a stunning soft purple, a petunia in a “starry night” pattern, a dahlia which is officially my favourite flower holy gosh, and this… Leaf? I don’t remember what he is and I lost his tag but frick what an awesome pattern!

Flowers!

Onto the herbs, I’ve got a mint, a dill and a bay leaf. They’re sweethearts and I’m excited!! I don’t eat bay leaf much, but it’s just cute. Mint and dill are always useful.

Like the dollar store pots?

Veggies are fun too! Lettuce, full yellow onions, tomatoes and cucumbers! I’m excited to have food of my own this year.

I’ve never grown cucumber before
Needed two pots for this dick
I love home grown lettuce!

I’m planning on growing the lettuce inside just because we eat a lot of it, and it’s not difficult. The cucumber can do what it likes outside, same with the tomato. But the onion I’m still not 100% what I’m doing with it yet. I know they grow downward, just like potatoes, so I may just leave it outside too, we’ll see.

Theoretically dahlias and mini roses can live inside with proper care all year long. Guess who’s going to attempt that? It’s me, I’m going to try, aren’t you excited? Although planting them together may not have been the best idea, we’ll see. Now that I know about the dahlia though, I’m going to decorate everything that needs flowers in dahlia’s.

The herbs are going to be in sunlight but hopefully not too much heat, they burn pretty easy and I’d feel bad if they died. Mint and dill are weeds, so they get to stay outside and isolated. I may even move them onto my deck so they can’t invade anything.

Everything looks so cute all planted and ready to live long happy lives! I’m slowly selling my soul to the idea of being a farmer more and more every day. But you know, there are worst things in the world. One day hopefully I get a full greenhouse, have too many plants, sell some home grown stuff at a farmers market, and be that person.

Almost everything I bought is here

Anyway, that’s all I have fore today. I know this post is long but I figured since I have nothing going on this weekend besides work that I’d leave you with some real content to read. Thanks for stopping by today! You’re awesome!

Back to Work

Advertisements

I know right, LAME! For the past, oh I don’t know, month-ish, I’ve been at home off work because the world has been low key ending. I mean I don’t mind too much, I get to go back and make more adventure stories, but at the same time, I’ve really learned that overworking myself like I was isn’t what I want to do anymore. I want to have time with my friends, and to have time to garden and enjoy life. I also have to look at getting a job with more pay, because that’s what’s going to hinder me the most with getting a house.

I’ve been still doing my Tuesday’s with getting yelled at for twelve hours at a time, but other than that, I haven’t been doing much besides living my best life. My computer is finally built even, so I’d rather be home and gaming or creating content. Plus I have a couple more things I have to do in my trailer before I can list it.

My dad’s lilac tree!

I made some calls and asked way too many questions so I think I understand the problem I was having looking at places to purchase. That problem being I just don’t make enough money. With that in mind, I need to change what kind of property I’m looking at. The down payment I’ll have just isn’t good enough. I’ve been learning a lot and it’s really opening my eyes to the idea that I’m going to be a corporate slave forever.

With going back, I can’t work for as little as I make right now, which is too bad because I really enjoy my job. I’m going to have to look at some other opportunities to try and make enough. And if I do end up buying a property in the near future, I want to be able to manage it and not cry every time bills are due. I’ve applied for a few jobs now, so fingers crossed I get something back!

This rhubarb is so dang pretty!

I’ll still keep to my schedule for posting as best I can. I don’t see it becoming a problem, but my memory is trash after all. Plus I may open up streaming or something eventually. But yeah, that’s all I’ve got for today. Thanks as always for stopping by, have an awesome day!

I’m a Real Gamer

Advertisements

A ways back now I did a gaming update because I picked Bloodborne back up. You can find my attempt at a terrifying explanation tagged bellow. But since then I’ve fallen off the band wagon a bit besides two games; Animal Crossing and Rune Factory. Without a proper desktop, I really am limited to maybe three games to play. Bloodborne being difficult and me being directionally impaired, decided casual games are a better idea.

Bloodborne Shenanigans
YOU DIED
My Switch I Bought

Casual games are such an odd thing. I find myself being consumed either catching bugs or planting crops that literal hours are lost to the in-game clocks. One task after another and the sun has started setting through my window. And since I’m sitting on my couch, my roommate and Midna sit with me, just letting time fly by. It’s just so easy to get lost in games like that.

In my free time, when we’re not adventuring and when I forget to do renovations, playing these games is what’s taking up my time. I’m actually having to put in reminders on my phone to blog because of these damn games. Please tell me I’m not the only one... I’m thinking I might leave gaming to like, Sunday’s for the turnip buying in Animal Crossing this week so I can actually finish the closet mostly and clean my house.

I have to apply another layer of drywall mud, sand and paint still, plus the baseboards need to be installed! But, farming is just so soothing to the brain.
I just barely have passed the one hundred thousand step goal for the month so I should keep going, right? Or I could gather fossils up and see if my museum wants any of them.
I can’t even bring myself to swap the HDMI in my TV so I can play my PS4 again. All I seem to want to do is buy and sell random crap in different Nintendo games. I’m hoping that if I buy a computer soon, I can get off my damn couch for a day.
I’m not that upset I’ve been wasting all of this time though, I mean, if I’m enjoying what I’m doing, it can’t be that much of a waste, can it?

Today I’m not going to pick up my Switch. I’m going to do some much dang laundry, and I’m going to photograph some more renovations! I can do this! I need a vacuum too. *

*Famous last words

When I get my computer rig built, I may even consider starting up a Twitch account just because. I’ve played videogames my whole life and that’s probably why I can’t kick this habit. Anyway, that’s all I’ve got today. I should really do some laundry…
Thanks for stopping by today! Stay safe, lots of love!
