I think I can safely say with only a slight hint of drama queen that this has been a pretty terrible week. Getting my wisdom teeth removed has resulted in the worst pain I have ever felt and an experience I would like to put behind me already, but the pain is still here to stay and I’m just ticking off missed days at work and weekend hours I should have been spending on freelance projects. But I finally decided to deal with the pain and take advil instead of vicodin as that was resulting in me literally losing my mind and lots of weight, and today I feel much more positive and ready to be on the upswing!
But despite barely leaving my bed for 5 days, somehow I pulled my shit together and put a scarf over my puffy face (Penelope style) and we got ourselves a new apartment in East Hollywood. Kind of the sweetest deal ever: we can move in whenever we want even though we won’t pay til the 15th, it’s the biggest apartment I’ve ever had, cheaper than our rent now, a beautiful old historic building with TONS of awesome character (french windows! checkered tile! a vanity in the bathroom!), two walk-in closets, and this cool huge fire escape that’s more like a deck that we can grow stuff on. We wanted to try for Silverlake or Los Feliz, but all the places we saw were too expensive for our budget and nothing was as cool as this place. Plus we are technically only a couple blocks away from Los Feliz, and less than a mile away from the Silverlake junction (that’s what bikes are for!), so it’s a fair trade to me. Also, look who are neighbors are in that last photo! I know, don’t be too jealous. I’m well on my way to being besties with Tom and Katie.
Anyway, excitement over the new apartment is really keeping me going and I hope to be a semi-normal human again soon! Stay tuned tomorrow as I have a weekend guest blogger! Someone who had a real weekend, too. Ha. Thanks for all the well wishes, friends.
