I’d like to say I have some “before” pictures, but truth be told, for the nearly 5 years we’ve called this space our home, we never really felt super proud of the living room. After getting rid of the old furniture, we had the opportunity to redesign and really make the space feel like ours. The white furniture really makes this room look larger than all the old enclosed black furniture. Now I just want to find more stuff to hang on the walls. It feels really good to love your home.
I went from working 30 hours in 3 days to spending a weekend assembling Ikea furniture (and getting rid of old furniture) to working 48 hours in 5 days...that being said, I’m glad to be kicking off a much more relaxing weekend. A little rosé seemed like a necessity. Hopefully my sprained wrist will completely heal up within the next few days.
GOT EM! Pretty stoked to have gotten my first pair of AJ1’s. I couldn’t think of a more on-brand colorway. . . . #aj1 #air #airjordan1 #airjordan #nike #sneakerfreaker
I would have bought a box, but I’m an adult now. I’ve put away my desire for such childish things and am no longer looking for a Choco Boy. I’m looking for a Choco Man.

008: I’ve been writing in a journal fairly consistently since the new year started. I just wrapped up my last journal post about 20 minutes shy of my birthday. 35 feels like a big one coming up for me. I realized today that I’ll be 10 years removed from one of the most tumultuous parts of my life. I was at rock bottom at 25. My drinking hit its peak, and so did the consequences of my drinking. I was a huge mess. With that meme where people talk about their last 10 years, it’s really hard for me to look back at all that. It’s not all bad, but it involves the worst parts of my life. I have a hard enough time looking forward as it is. That said, I’m feeling optimistic about 35. Optimism has been a difficult thing to come by at any part of my life.
007: I’m really focusing on working on some mental stuff right now, at least the mind blocks that get in the way of my ability to create and express myself. While I don’t usually care for pithy motivationals, I actually kinda identify with this piece of advice. I think I’m gonna use this as a personal mantra for the moment. That said, I felt it was important to write it down. In fact, I’ve written it down several times in my personal journal, which I’ve been writing in nightly since the beginning of the year. I’m getting there, or somewhere.
