A lot has happened in the past month. I moved into my new place, worked a crap ton, helped my parents pack up at the house and get them and the siblings off to Edmonton, worked a ton more, went to my best friends wedding, took over an entire department (paint) at work which is a lot more responsibility and so much more I can't even imagine having to list it all out. I even started dressing nicer and completely reinvented my "style" to change things up a little.
On top of that I started jogging 1-3 times a day and doing at least 50 push ups a day. I'm trying to find a way to do pull ups at home as well. I was having a rough day and went to go for a 30 minute jog a week or so ago and the 30 minutes quickly turned into 2 hours. At the end I still had energy so I sprinted a lap around the block and I guess all of that was too much and I messed my leg up pretty bad. That on top of my 8 hour work days the past week has been brutal. One leg is almost better but the other is still pretty bad.
One of my coworkers around my age lives a couple houses down from me and she has been giving me rides home after work because of my leg and the smoke from all the fires here in BC. She is one of the coworkers I was having a hard time getting to know so it was a great opportunity to get to know her more. She is moving across town this weekend so the rides will probably end but it was great while it lasted. Even though we are still not super close I'm glad we had the chance to talk and get to know each other a little better.
My leg, the smoke, the rides ending, the extra strain on my body from all the exercise and the fact that I haven't taken a week off for myself since I started this job a year and 3 months ago led me to book all of next week off. I've been beat and running on zero energy all month. It'll be great to have some time to just recharge and hopefully finish unpacking my stuff and hang with friends.
@Law212 that sounds like a blast. have fun!
a couple days ago somebody compared the outfit i had worn the day before to the one that day by saying it was "less prep, more kpop" and that was the greatest thing anyone has ever said to me. Then while wearing that outfit with my hair all styled (i rarely do) later that day a group of girls drove by whistling and hollering and one of them popped out of the skylight hole thing on the top of the car and yelled "hell yeah dude lets get it".
I don't know what that means but I'm going to take it as a compliment and assume my new style is dope af
I want to spend more of my time learning and being at least a little productive instead of spending it all playing games and watching tv/movies.
I picked up reading again and in the last couple of weeks I have read through a couple of novels. Not as much as I had hoped but still not bad for not having read a book in 7 years.
I also decided that I want to start learning to play piano. I have loved piano and violin music forever and after falling off listening to it for a long time Your Lie in April kind of reignited my love for it a couple of years ago. I have been searching for a good keyboard to buy as a birthday present to myself so I can start learning. They are expensive but I plan on taking it seriously so I'm trying to find something thats not just a starter keyboard I'll outgrow.
@VanishedNine sorry to hear about your mom. sending all my positivity your way.
so i ended up not moving into the place. I tried really hard to make it work but the landlord was unwilling to do anything to clean the place up or fix any of the problems with it and still wanted almost $400 more in rent than the place was worth each month. It was just in such bad condition. Holes everywhere, water damage on most of the ceiling, walls that needed paint badly and a bad carpenter ant infestation.
the day after me and my coworker went to check it out for the first time i texted him and told him that it was unacceptable how disgustingly dirty and broken it was in there. he texted me back saying dont worry he was going in that day to clean it. about an hour after i get to work i look out the window in the break room and see he is tehre with his family cleaning. they were there for about an hour before texting me and telling me it was clean and to go check it out again. checked it out and it was almost as bad as it was the day before.
i sent him a text telling him it wasnt going to work out but thanks anyway. he texted me back saying no problem and that he had never met anyone in his life as picky as i was. its like...dude...that place violates rental code and is probably a health hazard.
luckily through the whole thing i had coworkers helping me out figuring stuff out and now i have like 10 that are actively helping me look for another place to rent. i guess they like having me around haha. it's nice to have a group of people around who support you like they have the past couple of weeks.
the rental hunt resumes!
