THE SUMMER OF APSA -- CHAPTER 1 -- ADULTING
wow for the most part things have been going really well for me so im super happy
things that are good:
ill start w/ my birthday, which was the 3rd, i turned 17;
it was really nice, because it was on a saturday my dad was home. so i woke up that morning and get out of bed and theres this big ass box with a bag beside it and im like wtf so i open the big ass box first and its a fricking TURNTABLE for RECORDS and stuff and im like holy heck but then im like,, i dont have any records
that problem was remedied by looking in the bag which had, 3 RECORDS. the first was eagles - in the long run. then there was rush - all the world's a stage, and third one was steely dan - gaucho. so i just kinda sat there for a while as i LITERALLY HELD IN MY HANDS THE MUSIC FROM MY FAVORITE BANDS (hey that rhymes). so my dad and i fiddled around with the turntable but it didnt work FeelsBadMan. he said he'd get another one online and i was like Neato.
yesterday i started driving lessons (yeeeeeah i was a little late on those). i was nervous, but it was really chill. i go monday-thursday in the afternoon for basically the entire month, and i have to do 4 behind the wheel sessions. i dont have my permit yet, so i will get that probably next week.
ALSO YESTERDAY i fricking OPENED MY OWN CHECKING ACCOUNT??? LIKE AN ADULT DOES???? ITS MY OWN DEBIT CARD, ITS GOT MONEY ON IT??? 30 dolleroos which i spent like 20 on overwatch lootboxes (I WANT THAT SYMMETRA SKIN). and then i LOGGED THE PAYMENT IN A fricking TRANSACTION REGISTER likE ADULTS DO IT FELT SO GOOD I FEEL RESPONSIBLE!!
last week i CLEANED AND ORGANIZED MY ROOM and its nice now. and ive been making sure to stay on top of tidying it up (which is really just simple things like emptying the trash bin, taking out dirty clothes etc.)
and i have been partaking in various HEALTHY HABITS, for a while now. things that i normally neglected to do,, I DO THEM NOW, almost as regularly as THE AVERAGE PERSON. (little by little yanno). my sleep schedule is MOSTLY GOOD. and when it gets NOT GOOD i regulate it within a day or two. also i play the guitar NEARLY EVERY DAY even if its just for a little bit. i have been EATING HEALTHIER and i have lost 15 pounds So Far. i noticed i feel more Energetic.
and i have a journal app on my phone in which i write about how the day/past few days have been going, reflect on things, log my weight, and write goals. GOALS, GUYS. iif you would have told me a few months ago i was doing pansy shit like Writing Goals i wouldnt have believed you. but they help me keep on track, and motivate me.
the best part of all this good stuff is that i have managed to maintain this for a long time. and yes i have the occasional bad day when my mood is bad or i get off track or lose a lot of motivation. and YOU KNOW WHAT i just FORGIVE MYSELF and then either TRY AGAIN THE NEXT DAY or SALVAGE THE REST OF THE DAY and DON'T FALL INTO A PIT OF OFF TRACK DAYS (for example in the past i would have a bad day, say i eat something that goes over my daily calorie allowance, i'd be like u know what screw it i already trashed my day lets just eat whatever). but i dont do that anymore!
also lcs has started again >:3 so thats something to look forward to
things that are bad:
my hair is still falling out :(
i feel often feel overwhelmed about all the Adult Stuff i have to do now (going to the dmv to get my permit and learning to drive in general, i will be looking for a Job this fall, what im gonna do for college etc.). it seems to me like i'm trying to catch up to people my age who already have their drivers license, have jobs, know what they wanna do in life, have picked out colleges. and i still dont know a lot of basic things about Being An Adult. i also feel like i won't have as much free time.
sometimes i have bad days, where i dont meet certain goals i set. but like i said earlier, i usually feel okay.
THERE ARE SO MANY SPIDERS IN MY HOUSE OH MY GOD THERE WERE LIKE A MILLION WHEN I CLEANED MY ROOM, yesterday i was walking into the kitchen when a SPIDER DANGLED DOWN LIKE AN INCH FROM MY NOSE and theres literally an actual spider nest forming in the family room (i looked online at what they look like and Can Confirm it is indeed a spider's nest), which i urged my mom to take care of. i dont go in the family room much, but still. she said she would vacuum it up today.
stress caused by my family. which prompted my breakdown yesterday, the first ive had in a reaaaaally long time.
SO that happened.
but other than that i feel good.
