Let me tell you something… Today is a great day!
It is a great day because I am finally moving out of my house. YES!!! Finally!
My original plan had been to come home after BlogHer and move to Oregon with my friend Jessi. I was very much looking forward to this but unfortunately those plans have been delayed until the new year. I ended up with an unexpected 3 month opportunity elsewhere that extended my time at home by one month. So instead of moving away I was looking at an extra month at home. For me this was not good.
After a year living here I’ve realized this house is a toxic environment for me. My brother’s constant negativity, the overabundance of unhealthy food, and the bad memories and habits all add up to make a terrible environment for me. I know that spending more time here threatens both my sanity and my progress. So I decided not to let that happen.
I asked around and found a friend willing to let me rent an extra room in his apartment for a month. At the very least all my friend will do is encourage me to drink too many calories, and I can deal with that. I’ve packed most of my belongings and I’m moving across town for the rest of August.
It will be nice to be out of my mom’s house again and have control over my life. I won’t be able to blame my problems and failures on my environment any longer and that will be a good thing. Freedom and no excuses. I cant wait. :)
