Hello & Good Morning, friends!
Dear goddess, has it been a while since my last vlog update. As I sat here on this quiet Sunday morning, listening to “We’re Not Friends” by Ingrid Andress and watching Hailey Reese on YouTube, I was suddenly struck with the urge to write — so, here I am.
About a month and a half ago, the bf got laid off from work, so that made me the sole bread-winner for a bit, and holy hell, that was rough. A few emotional breakdowns went down as we tried to recover from the news, and also as we tried (what seemed like it was in vain, at the time) to find him a new job. Finally, within the past two weeks, we got word back from the local school district; he has officially been a paid crossing guard for the past week, and I am so, so happy for him. When he finished his first shift on his first day, I decided to treat him to some Halo Top Peanut Butter Cup ice cream — it was on sale, and it was something he hadn’t tried before, so I thought it necessary to jump on this opportunity to try it. **He said it was “all right”, and would get it again if it was on sale.**
I had my own meltdown, recently, as I’d paid some bills, only to realize that I wouldn’t have any money for our usual Sunday breakfast routine with our high school friend M. — that just broke my freaking heart. I’d become accustomed to that routine, and for it not to go down because I couldn’t afford our part was just…ugh…it was a mess. I was a mess. Thankfully, my bf was very supportive during that time and just let me cry it out. My well had overflowed, as I like to put it.
But, on a positive note, my (other) friend M. and I are picking up where we left off, so to speak, with our years of story-building online, like we did in high school. Back then, it was our form of escapism — and while MSN Messenger has come and gone — we’ve moved to Discord, and are slowly but surely finding our groove, again. Matter of fact, I hope to dedicate most of today to this activity.
Anyhow, I hope you all have been well. Have a great day/night, wherever you are in the world.
Until next time… ❤ ❤
