It’s here. The dreaded… finals week.
I already did one final last week online, I’ve got another online final today, an essay due Wednesday and an in-person paper test Wednesday as well. My load isn’t as bad as some peoples’, but the essay and in-person final are definitely stressing me out!
The essay is 20% of my grade and 1500 words, so it’ll take a while.
The in-person final is my French class, which I have been doing pretty poorly in, so I really need to study my butt off! Thank god I am off today and tomorrow and have all the time in the world to study.
However, once finals are all over, I have a whole month of no classes, and no studying! Just work. Like I mentioned in an earlier post, I do plan to do a revamp of this blog and kinda get myself on track with it. Hopefully I can be more consistent with quality and quantity for you guys.
Another reason this has been a rough week….. Well, remember that post I made last week about the apartment my boyfriend and I had found? We went and looked at in person, and loved it. It was a good size, the bathroom had his and hers sinks, lots of closet storage space, and the walls had a fresh coat of a nice light grey paint. We filled out the application. It was all set and ready to go, and we were going to sign the lease and pick up the keys on Saturday. However, the lady we had been talking to was out of town so we were going to meet up with her today or tomorrow instead.
Then, last night, at like 8pm, my boyfriend gets an email from her… saying her partner had already rented out that apartment to someone else. Needless to say, we were crushed. Irate. Pissed off. Depressed. All words that describe angry and sad. I cried. A lot. It just wasn’t fair. We had already had so many plans of how we were going to set up the rooms, picturing our mornings spent in the double vanity bathroom, and we even bought cutting boards for our kitchen. That place was ours in our minds. She hadn’t even mentioned other people being interested in it- we think her and her partner just weren’t communicating. It was a terrible feeling finding out we lost it. It was our home and she ripped it from us right when it was within reach. Had she not been out of town, it would have been ours on Saturday…
We spent the rest of the evening scouring craigslist and various apartment websites to find other places- moving out was just our mindset at this point. We found a few, and we’re actually looking at some tonight! They’re not quite as cheap, but still affordable and in our range, and have lots of character! I really want to find a place soon. Before all this happened, I was content to wait until summer, but after I got it in my head I just can’t let it go now. I want to find a place we can make into our own, and decorate it, and share with you guys all the projects we do for it! I want to DIY everything, and have rooms to decorate, and a home.
I had so many blog post ideas- before and afters, DIY projects, organization posts, more recipes, holiday decorating on a budget….. so hopefully one of the places we’re seeing tonight works out for us!
Stay tuned 🙂
