April 30th

Moving is a nightmare. Thank god for Brad. I’m beyond stressed.

April 29th

Today was tough. Moving is's really hard. Mentally and physically. I couldn't have done nearly as much as I did today without Brad's help though, and I'm eternally grateful. There's still a lot to do, which is stressing me out so, so much...but somehow it'll work out in the end.

April 28th

Today was a decently productive day! I made moving and storage arrangements and...tried to mentally prepare for cleaning? Yikes. I can do it though. And Brad’s gonna help because he’s the actual best.

April 27th

Wendy’s is being delivered to my apartment. This is the future.

Today was my last day of rest before I go hard with moving stuff. Luckily I have the keys to my new place already so I can start bringing stuff over. The main hurdle is cleaning my apartment and getting my stuff into storage.

April 26th

My feet hurt. I was out and about for eight hours today. Just doing a little bit of everything. Got my new house keys. Went shopping. Played Pokémon Go. Lots of good stuff. And now...I am very tired. I walked a lot. In bad shoes. ...Good night, friendos.

April 25th

Sometimes I just wanna chop all my hair off again. I don't think I'm going to yet...but I wouldn't be surprised if I do next year or something.

Tonight was a very wonderful walk with Ace! He really is such a good boy. He's so tiny and curly and nice. Cas was a super cuddle bug today too, so it's been a pretty cozy day.

Brad and I got pizza tonight. Holy shit guys...I really enjoy a good margherita pizza.

April 24th

Oh hey, I just got home from work. Which is great because I have to be back there at 7:30 AM tomorrow. I’m gonna need a nap after that.

Dear rain: you’re great when I don’t have to do stuff but maybe if you could ease up that would be cool, thanks.

April 23rd

You know, I was going to do laundry today. Then it rained. And laundry is not in my building. laundry. I did get a few things for me temporary room though. The current decor is...kinda like a 90’s hotel room. So I'm gonna fix it just a little. I also went to a chiropractor. He was...nice? It didn’t make me feel better though.

April 22nd

All right, I think I’ve found a temporary living situation. This is good news. Thank freaking goodness.

Today was another zoo day! This time I went with Brad. It was a lot busier than last time, but I still had a ton of fun. Also I might have pet a goose. The goose was not part of the zoo. It was just there. And I pet it. Just a little.

April 21st

Oh hey, I’m tired! I stayed up til like 4 AM to get the April Mickey Memories plush, but then I couldn’t fall asleep afterwards. And work was very long today. We were in that weird spot between steady and quiet where like...there’s just barely enough stuff to do to keep busy. It was not the most exciting day. Tomorrow...zoo?

April 20th

I accidentally had another do-nothing day. And no, it's not because it's 4/20. I'm literally just a tired human being sometimes.

I may be on the path to finding a great place to live though. It's a house share, but like...the people who own the house seem super cool. And they love cats. So we'll see!

April 19th

Wow, I did absolutely nothing today. I guess I looked for housing...and um, ate? I took a nap? It was a very nothing day. But that’s okay. Sometimes a nothing day is okay.

April 18th

Aaand guess who wasn't chosen for the apartment? This girl! That's right, I have nowhere to live starting in May and I have two weeks to figure it out! I'm totally fine and not at all panicking! Absolutely!

April 17th

It is cold, and I am sleepy. How is this mid-April? It's so chilly here! Truly, the weather is so bad that I was only at work for two and a half hours. It was so slow that we only needed two people working, so I left early. (And got Taco Bell.)

I'm still really enjoying Pokémon Go. I really want to catch more Swablu so I can have a beautiful Altaria! Hopefully soon!

I am a nervous wreck about where I'm going to be moving in May, by the way. I haven't heard a final decision from the place that I really want to live, and it's giving me terrible anxiety. Also, I have a bunch of stuff to get done before I head home next month for my friends' wedding. There's so much to do!

April 16th

Listening to showtunes at work while processing shipment makes for a fun shift. Especially when you have a duet partner. (Thanks Patti!)

I went and visited the cat shelter today. I ended up with two cats in my the same time. It was magical.

April 15th

Whee, guess who’s nice and blonde again? This girl! I still feel like I wanna go lighter and ashier though. But I’d feel bad cheating on my hair I don’t know. I think this hair color suits me well. But I’m not over the moon about it, and I wanna be. Gimme some grey hair baby.

April 14th

Today was certainly a day. I didn't sleep well, but hey, what else is new? Work was pretty good though - and I got off early, so Brad and I got food, and he went with me to see my potential new residence. I'm not really in love with the neighborhood, but the inside of the unit is actually really nice, and it's currently being renovated. The landlord is also super chill. So here's hoping I get approved - then it's smooth sailing. I'll have a place that's mine.

April 13th

Well, I went to work on zero sleep. I was just way, way too stressed out. And the apartment I saw today was...small. Not bad but very small. Honestly, if it was just me, I might go for it. But I'd feel bad for Cas if nothing else.

And now I wanna sleep a lot.

Thursday, April 12, 2018

April 12th apartment showing was cancelled. Because someone put down a deposit on the unit. I am...very discouraged. About everything. Work. Apartment hunting. Cleaning. Everything is discouraging me right now. What do I do?

April 11th

Zoo day, zoo day! Today was fun. Going to the zoo alone is kind of exciting. And a lot of the animals were up and doing! Or at the very least right at the glass. It was really great. Polar bears are so neat!

Apartment viewing tomorrow. I'm nervous, of course. We'll see how it goes.

Tuesday, April 10, 2018

April 10th

Well, I finally caught up on sleep today. It was pretty good sleep, actually. And it was...all day. There was a lot of sleeping, and not much else. But I have plans for tomorrow, including an early morning shift at work, so let's hope I didn't mess up my sleep schedule.

I really want/need to go to the zoo.

April 9th

I got home at like 1:30 AM last night. But I also went to Steak 'n Shake with my coworkers after our shift, so it was okay. As for today, the apartment viewing was a bust. The only thing that place had going for it was that it had two bedrooms. But the neighborhood was bad, the apartments were falling apart, and everything smelled like cigarette smoke. No thank you. I'm viewing another place tomorrow though. And right now I'm applying for jobs. What else is new?

April 8th

Work from 6 until ??? tonight, so I’m blogging now. Eating oatmeal and relaxing. With I had tonight free. But also glad to get some money.

April 7th

Sometimes you drive out to do a dog walk at 11 PM and it gets canceled. C’est la vie.

My jaw and neck really freaking hurt. This sinus stuff is weird.

Friday, April 6, 2018

April 6th

My day has consisted of not being able to fall asleep, trying to fight through any tiredness so that I'd stay awake all night and all day and just sleep extra well tonight, falling asleep within 1.5 hours of making that plan, and having throat and jaw pain. Yes, the snoring weirdness is happening again. My sinuses don't even feel too bad. Or maybe I'm just getting used to it, because I definitely still have the post-nasal drip, and my OTC allergy meds aren't helping anymore. I need to go to the doctor, really. This would be easier if I could afford to pay my overdue health insurance bill. I can't believe how expensive health insurance is. Just another reason I want to move abroad...

April 5th

What a shitty day. The apartment I was hoping for increased their rent by $100 a month and it’s out of my budget. The problem is that I found that out after the tour...and I really loved the place. I’m disappointed.

Wednesday, April 4, 2018

April 4th

I have an apartment tour tomorrow and I'm genuinely nervous. This place seems promising and aside from this, I have only two other leads. However, this one is probably in the best location convenience-wise of the bunch, and the leasing consultant has been really great in our email conversations. I don't want to get my hopes up too high, but I also want to find a place and get the moving process started so I can stop worrying so much.

Tuesday, April 3, 2018

April 3rd

Well, I worked more than expected tonight. Sometimes you have a coworker call in and say they'd rather not come to work because the weather is bad. Not like, they'll be late because it's stormy. They're just not coming. So instead of leaving at 7, I stayed until after we closed. And I worked hard. I'm gonna be sore tomorrow. I also ran my arm into a door handle and I have a feeling I'm going to have a pretty nasty bruise tomorrow. It's still red.

I somehow got lucky and didn't have to drive in any of the rain today, aside from some light mist. Now, I did get stuck behind an accident. It was very inconvenient and I was late to work. But I really don't like driving in heavy rain, so...I guess it worked out.

April 2nd

Every year I accidentally type "Apeil" instead of "April" in the title. Always.

In today's report: Does Kate have an stomachache due to stress, hunger or something else?

In other news, I just felt something weird on my finger while typing this. It's my nail. It broke.

April 1st

Hi friends! I had a sleepy Sunday today. But I did laundry! I have clean underwear and everything! Now Cas and I are just chilling.

Concept: me, but with fewer stress dreams about apartment hunting
