does anybody make text posts anymore? anyway, i haven’t really updated in a long time.
i moved (like 5 weeks ago). i am living legitimately alone for the first time in my life, which is all the more relieving since my 290 square foot apartment doesn’t allow room for another person. i believe this place is as small as it can legally be. there were reasons for looking for a place this small, but this is just temporary. i can afford a bigger place but i’m trying to live way below my means. i’m due for a raise at work at exactly the same time i’m eligible to transfer to another unit at this place, so i might let that be my excuse for doing so. it’s not so bad, but i don’t really feel so much at home here. that could change. no real complaints about the place aside from some weirdos. but i haven’t actually met anybody here, and i’ve only seen my closest neighbor once. he’s not one of the aforementioned weirdos. yet.
actually i do have complaints. living on the third floor suuuucks. the fresh paint smell suuuucks. and what has me the angriest (totally my fault) and confused about (not my fault) is that i apparently moved into a different county and didn’t know it. i’m one street away from dallas county, but i still live in dallas city. i found this out when i tried to change my voter registration (responsible adulting!) and they sent me the “LOL BITCH U CANCELLED GTFO” letter. this could have several implications.
i have developed a weird rash on my face (which started before i moved). i didn’t know that it was as bad as it was until i shaved my face a week ago for the first time in over a year (scruff 4 lyfe). spotty all over left cheek, chin, upper right lip, behind right ear. and worst of all, my eyelids. the doc has me on some staunch antibiotics and steroid cream. whatever it is, i’m not sure that it’s not stress induced. the doctor kept asking me about stress, too. orrrr maybe all the rain has turned my face into mushrooms. honestly, with this mug, does it even matter? i’m one condition away from Cher playing my mother in a movie.
last weekend i traded my Galaxy Note 3 in for an iPhone 6. i only ever had an iPhone back in 2013 when the 5s came out. i hated it but mostly because it was too small and got really hot and the battery drained quickly. i got rid of it after a week. the iPhone 6 is kind of a sweet spot for me, and i can type more efficiently on it than any touch screen phone i’ve ever had. and the battery life is decent and it doesn’t get hot. sooooo the Note 3 had a better screen, but it’s not a big deal. i kind of love this iPhone.
