Guys!!!! April is done. I love that I’m only doing our coffee dates once a month. I feel like I have all these stories just waiting to be shared! I’m pumped. Let’s go sit and talk more about how awesome our April was.
If we were having coffee, the first thing I’d tell you is we finally moved! After months of waiting, it finally happened. The move itself was uneventful. I think I packed a lot of my things without really thinking that the space we’re moving into is a lot smaller than my family’s home. Not to brag or something but my old bedroom is bigger than our master bedroom! There’s a lot of adjustments to be made but I am willing and ready to make all of it. It’s fun but it’s also kind of lonely. I was so used to having a lot of people around me (especially my nephews and niece) that coming home to an empty house is very new. I’m getting the hang of it now but there are days when I’d want the kids here just for the noise.
If we were having coffee, I’d also share with you that every day I ride the jeep. I’m not a fan of jeeps because my old city has buses and that’s all you’ll ever need to get to point A from point B. It’s taking a lot of getting used to. I honestly feel like crying sometimes because I feel like my skin is getting damaged because of the daily commute. (Yes, you can call me a maarte but I have invested a lot in my skin already.) Plus the fact that when you ride jeeps you always have to rush and push people. Why can’t we just fall in line sometimes?
If we were having coffee, I’d also tell you that I almost had a mental breakdown the other day. I felt like crying because I was in line for more than an hour for a jeep. I was annoyed and tired. I just wanted to go back to my old city. I almost texted Mike that I wasn’t going to come home but I knew that doing so wasn’t the right choice. I know that I’m not that good with changes and the last week of April was the most challenging of all the weeks of my existence. Let me be honest and tell you that my parents gave me the best life (a comfortable life) and the change from the best to semi-best is freaking me out. Please don’t get me wrong and think that I’m too privileged or whatever it’s just that I need time to process these changes. I’ll get used to it. I’ll adjust. I just need time.
If we were having coffee, I’d reassure you that despite all these changes I’m ecstatic to start this new life with my husband. Just this morning we did laundry and let me tell you I am not used to doing any chores, lol. I like it though. I’d do anything for this guy. It’s going to take months before I can finally say I’m used to this thing but even so, I am ready to make all these changes.
To end this month’s little coffee date, if we were having coffee, I’d do a shameless plug of my shop. I opened an account with Carousell where I post some of my preloved items. Since I did bring quite a lot of things, I’m using this moment to downsize and let go some items that have no more use for me. #minimalism Who knows, maybe you’d find something you’ll like! Since I’m going to do meet-ups, maybe you and I can meet up for a real coffee date too! 😉
April was filled with amazing experiences. I can’t wait for May to see where all these changes take me. How was your April like? Tell me more about it in the comments below!
