This is one of the first things I saw when I walked through my parents house on Sunday. I love my house. Being home is so comforting, and watching the house for my parents is incredible. It's like we are staying in a hotel. My only problem is that I just can't help but miss our kitties. My parent's cat, which we got when I was little, isn't very friendly. She keeps to herself mostly which makes watching her seem pointless. But we leave tomorrow morning which is a bummer. However, I can look forward to moving in only six days!

Earlier I took these photos because I couldn't get over how much attitude Sophia had today. I was interupting her nap and couldn't help but crack up at her crazy expressions. Packing with her around makes everything much easier, and we seem to get more done. Jason and I cleared out his office today. Seeing the room empty was pretty sad, but we sat in there for a while and talked about the past two years. We have eight more days until we move and there is so much left to do. More packing, paint touch ups, cleaning, finding a couch and buying a bed. Though for whatever reason I refuse to stress out over it. Everything will get done, and I'll be able to start new. I plan on accomplishing a lot in the next few months.
I can't decide which way I like it. Oh well, I love looking at all the possibilities. I finally put the finishing touches on this today. All it needed was some layers but I've been lazy lately. To be honest it has been on the back burner for a while. I didn't realize how much of a rainbow it reads as though. Not that I mind, it just wasn't my plan. But I guess that's what happens when a fun doodle gets turned into a painting. Maybe I'll be inspired to finish a few other things I've been working on. We'll see.

Mmmm, Fat Friday! It's unbelievable how much you can really appreciate a fun meal. The entirety of my day was spent packing which brought about such mixed emotions. So it was nice to just whip up something easy without needing to take a trip to the grocery store. Simple french toast, eggs, and bacon.

If it wasn't for this little doll I'd be pulling out my hair right now. This morning I woke up to breakfast in bed, coffee and cheesy eggs. Jason wanted me up before ten so he figured this was his best bet, and boy was he right. It was a wonderful morning until we started working on our Spanish presentations. The both of us lost our project outline, so we had to wing it completely. Not fun, but my project is almost done and Sophia has been sleeping next to me all day.

What a busy day. Jason and I signed a lease, met my dad on his lunch break, went to Spanish class, grocery shopped, and did our homework for tomorrow's class. I'm so exhausted and I have to worry about a presentation spoken in Español tomorrow. However, even though things are coming up quickly I can't hide my excitement for the new apartment and my graduation party! It all seems so unreal. It makes all of the stress and studying worth it.
Though my night has been pretty nice aside from the endless amounts of work. While we were grocery shopping two separate women told Jason and I how adorable we looked together. Both of them commented on how we made the perfect couple. It was so random and sweet that it completely made my shitty Tuesday night perfect. I also have to mention that today in the car we realized that in two months we will have been dating for four years.
Like I said everything is coming up all at once. But at least I can relax and enjoy the company of best friend and my furry little kitty.

My emotions towards beginngings has always contradicted themselves completely. My general feeling overall through my many new starts has always brought on anxiety and nervousness. Maybe this has been caused by the stress of beginning school or a new job so many times. But I usually find myself with sweaty palms and a frantic look no matter what I tell myself. Now I can’t deny the thrill caused by beginnings. Starring at a blank canvas or moving into a new apartment always brings about a level of satisfaction and joy. However, I’m at that point in life where I’m being forced into too many new beginnings all at once.
I’ll explain. I just turned twenty three and finished my degree in sociology, I am currently looking for a job so that I can substain liviging with my boyfriend on our own. The purpose for this blog is to combat these new very frightening beginnings with an exciting fresh start. New blog. New life. I want to be able to document this time not only so I can look back on it but so I can remind myself and share the little thing that add up to create positivity. I need to distract myself from the negative. My life involves creativity and little creatures. Art and cats to make it simple. Reflecting on the small details might help to change my sometimes pestimistic views.
