and my living room

8

I took a shitload of photos this week but almost all of them are of the dogs I was sitting for or of the sky which, par for the course, but anyway I’m finally home and for now, for right this moment, I feel okay. I needed the break and as much as I’m loathe to admit it and as much as my anxiety attempts to dictate otherwise, occasionally stepping out of my routine is good and necessary and beneficial, especially when something awful is pressing on it anyway, and when I return I’m a lot more grounded and rested and just… better. I’d honestly do it for free if they’d let me because it’s like hitting some kind of reset button. 

1. The moon followed me all the way to Columbus when I left on Tuesday and was still visible at noon

5. Things got ridiculous once they saw me drag my suitcase out into the living room and were both overcome with sudden frantic cling followed abruptly by disdainful resignation 

6. My dad was transferred in the middle of the night on Friday to main campus which is an absolute fucking circus and this is going to be a very long week, and I honestly don’t think I’d have been able to drag myself through it without having that break and getting away from all of it for a couple of days.

8. It’s difficult to discern in this shitty zoomed photo but the ditchlords above me have apparently tired of flicking regular lit cigarettes onto the overhang and have now switched to the electronic kind?

Well, that was fun.

So I get out of the shower and walk into my bedroom area, slightly dripping wet and wearing nothing but a towel around my neck, only to see my landlord and two strangers standing in my living room, visibly embarrassed at my sudden and unclothed appearance.  

Turns out the Landlord didn’t bother to tell me she’d be coming by for an apartment showing two hours earlier than planned. Didn’t even knock, just let herself in. Apparently, when she said “be ready for people to show up at any time”, she meant ANY time. Do I need to put up a “Winter is currently naked, don’t let yourself in” sign for my front door every time I want to have a shower now? 

Depression rant

It’s been so bad for the past few weeks. I washed my hair ONCE. (Living off dry shampoo and baby wipes) My room smells like food that’s been laying out. Clothes are scattered everywhere and there’s so many dishes. My reckless ass stopped taking my lexapro Bc I wanted to drink. Now that I’ve decided I’d rather feel better than get drunk occasionally I can’t even find my anti depressants. I went to go buy some more but then realized my debit card is missing. This shit needs to come to an end. I need a pep talk because I clearly can’t help myself like this.

Custom made habitats?

Hey reptiblr, so I’ve got 3 snakes (two bps and a king snake) and I really want some kind of stackable enclosures for them so that I can save floor space. Right now they’re in 40gal+ glass terrariums, each on separate stands.. they take up most of my living room! We’re moving in about two months and I’d like to be able to have the three of them moved into my room in a nice neat stack, but alas… the search proves difficult.

I’ve been checking online for prebuilt stackable enclosures, but I holy crap am I too poor for this. I could potentially afford a set, but I would have to sell my current tanks first which would of course leave my snakes homeless in the meantime.

I’m considering building my own stackable enclosures, but I don’t exactly have much if any experience building things and I’m not too keen on spending the money and fucking it all up.

I’ll probably check in with my local exotic shops to see if they know of anyone selling (used?) stackable enclosures for a reasonable price, just in case

Any suggestions?

I don’t trust the hotel I’m in at all. I’ve found seven live bugs in my room in less than 24 hours, and bug inspector guy was totally chill about just walking into my room, letting the door close behind him, and moving shit all around to look for more bugs with me still in there, in my pajamas.

Don’t stay at Radisson hotel at Celebration.

i’m in my prime,
not withering and old.
but i refuse to play
your wicked games any longer.

i know this tether is unbreakable,
but you make me feel like i’m interchangeable.
you drew a target on my heart,
when did this become fatal attraction?

i don’t have the strength,
the energy,
nor the patience
to be held hostage by your love.

so baby please don’t despair
when i say that
i’ve found the courage to
let you go.

you were never meant to be tied down in the first place.

—  believing i could love you was my mistake, c.j.n.

My brother, inspired by the Marth pentagram post, made a pentagram out of glow-in-the-dark duct tape in hopes of summoning Camilla. Instead he got a 5-star Takumi. The irony of it. The Camilla pentagram summoned Takumi. He was attracted by all the Nohrian Scum

UPDATE: he finally got Camilla everyone

How do you redecorate without breaking your fragile bank account??

I love this question! Everything on this list is under $30, and most of it can be purchased from the safety of your dorm room couch.

Decorating on a Budget

1. Plants: Plants are my personal favorite decor (apart from Xmas lights). They’re inexpensive and look great in any location. If watering a plant every day doesn’t work for your schedule, get a cactus! I water my cacti twice a week.

2. Xmas Lights: I try to distance myself from people who say that Xmas lights are just “seasonal”. I have three different strands of lights up all year long, one in each room and one on my outdoor balcony. These lights are perfect for parties, romantic evenings, etc. 

3. Candles/Incense: Dorm room or apartment landlord permitting, candles and incense really help an apartment feel more homey. They also help stave off the smell of your cat’s litter box, which is always a plus.

4. Posters: Posters aren’t as expensive as you think they are, but poster frames are ridiculously expensive. And you can’t buy the cheap ones, they fall apart instantly- you have to buy the $40 ones. My advice to you, buy posters and hang them up carefully with pushpins or tape.

5. Clocks: Buy a cool clock off Society6 or RedBubble for $25. It’s my belief that the right clock can help brighten up an otherwise dull-looking room. I bought my boyfriend this Bob’s Burgers clock for his birthday last year.

6. Shower: You don’t need to use the low-grade weak shower head that came with your bathroom. You can buy color changing shower heads and spa quality shower heads on Amazon for $25. Go forth! Always keep your old shower head somewhere safe, and put it back on when you’re ready to move out. There are lots of great and truly unique shower curtains out there on the internet, but they’re expensive. You’re better off buying one from Target or Walmart.

7. Night lights: I am the sort of person who always needs to pee at 3am. I have always used night lights in my bathroom and kitchen because they’re so much better than blundering around in the dark. Similar to the Xmas lights, they help create that “mood”. I have these cute little lava lamp night lights.

8. Glow in the dark stars: Just trust me on this.

9. Chalkboard paint: Dorm room or apartment landlord permitting, chalkboard paint can help turn your room into a perpetual canvas. A friend of mine from college did this to his incredibly small room, and it looked so good.

10. Beaded curtain: Beaded curtains help make small spaces appear larger. We have a beaded curtain hanging in our hallway currently, and it’s great. You don’t need a super expensive one that was handmade by the indigenous people of wherever. Just a simple one to put in a doorway or hang on the wall to change your space.
