I want to fucking kick everything.
I mean, not really because people are actually replying to all the flat-related messages I sent out half an hour ago and I’m scheduling some viewings already, but I bloody fucking hate flat-hunting and I want it to die a fiery death. Not to be super dramatic or anything.
The last Weekly Wishes post I wrote was back in April, and I have absolutely no clue what I resolved to do — make it to London in one piece? I did do that! Well done, me. Then I went to Leicester and I came back and I got an awful cheap phone from Sainsbury’s because people keep asking for my number (on online forms) (this was going to be the main goal in the Weekly Wishes post I nearly made on Saturday) and flathunting is fucking bullshit. At least I’ll have kitties to squeeze for another couple of weeks.
Anyway. My #1 wish for this week is to figure out how to take care of myself here, because I’ve done an appalling job of it since Annemari left, and appalling is actually a pretty generous term to apply to it. I spend a lot of time worrying and overwhelming myself with an unorganized mix of flathunting, thinking about money, thinking about the stuff I’m behind on and feeling terrible, and very little time getting stuff done or actually relaxing. I want to make time to not worry, and be on my own, and do things I love. I could edit photos, or I could have a walk around, or — I don’t know. Something. I could even work during it, because the issue here is that my brain won’t switch off, and half the time, when it finally does, I get more done than when it’s on.
So I really do need to do that. I’m just not sure how, which is ridiculous given how long I’ve spent working myself out.
- I want to go/am going to a Speed Flatmating event for West London tomorrow night. See info here. In short, it’s free entry, 7 pm to 9 pm, in Hammersmith. Is anyone free to come with me? We can meet a bit earlier and do a little shoot or something. Please don’t make me do it alone. (I will if I have to, but the likelihood I’ll either nap through it or blow it off is much lower if I commit to meeting someone.)
- On Wednesday I’m moving all my luggage and myself to Streatham, and I really need to not do it in one go, because that would be dumb. I also need to ask my landlady when she wants me out of my room… which I’m going to go do now, actually. — She’s got someone coming on Friday, and she said I can stay the night of Wednesday, and then I have all of Thursday to make my move. Awesome.
- I have plans for Saturday! With Sarah from The Laughing Medusa. I’m really looking forward to it. Apparently I need excuses to do things like go and see the city I love so much.
So we’re on. What are you doing this week?
