There has been a huge lack of posts lately, due to being unmotivated and no idea what to post. I know I have talked about wanting to move, make a change from Washington and well, I am putting that into effect. The end of April 2019 I am moving back to Texas. Now, I love Washington. It is absolutely beautiful, the weather is my DREAM weather, but unfortunately, I do not make a shit ton of money.
Now, with that being said, I am not upset about that. I love what I do and I don’t do my job for the money. When I say I do not make a shit ton of money, the kind of money I make doesn’t sustain me in Washington State, more-so where I currently live in, the greater Seattle area. Seattle and the surrounding area is extremely expensive to live in. For a DECENT area, you are looking around $1200-$1500 a month for a one bedroom, if you are lucky. I found one apartment for $1000 a month, and guess what? Terrible reviews, cars being broken into, vandalism, etc.
Besides the high rental rates, I miss swimming in the ocean. Washington has beautiful beaches, do not get me wrong, however, I do not swim in the water. It is ice cold. I miss laying on the sandy beaches, getting a “tan,” and swimming in the ocean. Right by the ocean is where I belong, it is my happy place.
So, I have about 9 1/2 months before the move. There are tons of things I need to do. I only have a small, four-door car, so no furniture is coming with me. I need to refurbish furniture and sell it, repaint the walls, fill any holes, deep clean my oven (it is bad y’all), pack, etc. I am going to break down each month for things to do so by the time it hits March and April, I am not going to be overwhelmed with projects. I thought it would be fun for me to also document my going through the motions.
This should be fun, I am super excited. I have lived in Washington State for 7 years now and have made a few good friends, but it is time for me to move on.
