Add to that the fact that I LOVE my bed & dresser. I know they're just things but the bed was the first adult furniture purchase I made, my dresser is so cute & vintage, and it's gonna be sad to part with them. Ugh.
"How do I cram it all in!!??" Ugh. (from weheartit.com)
AND Teeter, Chick and I have lived together for 5 years - we've made some purchases together, our kitchen stuff is all entwined - I'm breaking up the awesomeness trifecta. We call it the "divorce." Luckily they don't have to divorce just yet; they're getting two friends to move in & cut down the rent. That's right, two; I'm too awesome of a roommate to be replaced by just one person!
I have around two months to make this all happen. I need to get my ass in gear. UGH.
Anyway... looking on the sunny side of things...
Last night I bartended an event for Tree People up on Mulholland. If you're in the LA area, care in the least bit about the environment & don't know about this organization, go check it out. Awesome group. They plant trees and educate people on the importance of a green city; you can volunteer with them every weekend to help plant or maintain trees around LA. Even more fun, they sustain a beautiful public park with great hiking trails - check it out!
Anyway, the building I worked in was built out of recycled materials, including jeans - what!! - and showcased interesting artwork made from natural and recycled materials. They had a live band, it was a beautiful night, and everyone was so friendly. They even invited me to have dinner & drinks with them when I was off the clock, and I totally would've but I thought it would've been a little uncomfortable & maybe against the rules. :) And on top of all that, I tripled my actual paycheck in tips! You just can't beat a night of work like that.
They also take people on Full Moon Hikes; the next one is April 28 at 7pm, and I'm gonna do it. Who wants to come with?
On a different note, I want to send out a hugenormous thank you to all the friends that have been so supportive of my decision to move. I've gotten so many facebook comments, comments here, emails, and even a few phone calls, all of them sad but excited. It means a lot to know y'all are rooting for me. Thanks, loves.
Today I am so happy & grateful for:
~ lovely, amazing and supportive friends
~ green organizations
