Today I...March 5th

Today I... sharing a photo of my newest office orchid with you. I bought it for myself for my birthday two weeks ago and it has been enjoying my sun-filled windowsill ever since. My other office orchid which I got myself for my birthday two years ago is also loving its new home, it's sprouting two new stems!!!

...was majorly grouchy and disgruntled for half the day over the whole cat situation at my place and also over getting screwed over for that apartment I wanted. I perked up after lunch though and felt even better after getting a call telling me that I have an appointment at noon tomorrow with a guy at the apartment building. He wants to meet me and go over some things before continuing with my application process, so hopefully that's a good sign. I'll be going with my dad, which is great because he'll be able to set me straight with anything I might understand and I'll also feel less intimidated if they're not happy with something in my application, That might be, because I am applying for an apartment with rent about 160$ higher than what I'm paying now...and I work at a church. I can see how that might make them wonder how financially viable I am, but what can I say? I got a raise. That's what happens when you go from being an 'on call' employee (who was working full time) to a 'permanent' employee (who still works full time).

...cleaned my fish tank.

...found out that someone if going to come and visit my apartment tomorrow at 5:00 P.M. Boy, I can't wait to see their reaction when they see the dilapidated hallway and the run down laundry room and the plywood door frame around my apartment door, not to mention my shower that was never completely finished. Yup, the place looks just like it does in the ad on Craigslist. YEAH RIGHT!!! Run away, potential renter, run away now and find something that's actually worth the rent my landlord is asking for.


  1. that's a beautiful orchid. I hope things work out with your the apartment that you are going after.

    When would you be moving?
