Weekly Happiness

Hey! I’m feeling pretty good right now. Embracing alchemy, change, and positivity over here. This week I’m switching roommates, so that’s a big deal! Lots of energy shifts. I also had a little epiphany earlier this week. I had two dates in one day, and I fell asleep in front of both of them. Now, if you’ve read my How To Date Uncustomary┬ápost, you know that’s not something I just do willy-nilly. Sleeping is a super vulnerable state for me where I feel like I’m just blacking out for eight hours and could possibly do anything, hahah. After the first time I had a bit of an existential crisis and freaked out that I did that, because especially with what happened recently, I’ve had an extra level of guard up. But then later it happened again! I fell asleep! What the hell…

If you caught my Instagram stories within 24 hours of 2:30 AM that night, you might have seen me talking about this. I logged on to talk about how I was feeling really empowered because I realized that maybe it wasn’t that I was feeling particularly comfortable with these people, but that I’m feeling really comfortable with MY BODY AND SELF. That’s the revelation! Hell yeah! (And then I had a dance party in my car.)

Today I’m going to focus on work, tomorrow I’m helping with moving, and Sunday is a photoshoot with Maura, yay! I can’t believe we’re already halfway through April. I’ve just been letting everything slide by and I’ve sucked. I logged onto the Uncustomary Babes group to apologize for my absence and general suckiness. I’ve honestly been in a shit place that I’ve been learning a new set of coping skills to deal with, but I’m poking through and ready to be here for you fully, presently, openly again. If you have anything that you’d like to see me make, please come chime in on my post here. I love you.

Here’s what I’ve been into lately…

Pictures from last week:

[Extra Sparkle] * Having my mind blown at the Planetarium * Dabbing with the guy making my pizza * Having my mind blown that Aladdin lies about who he is for 90 minutes and that’s actually a pretty asshole thing to do * Taking a walk with my dad this morning and that making my body kind of jumpstart itself * My mom handing me a bag full of half empty shampoos and my blue bra * Vintage postcards of Baltimore * The cashier I gave You Are Beautiful stickers to peeling them off immediately and putting them on her nipples * A stranger running across the street to take a photo of me standing in front of a pink building, because I was wearing all pink and “matched real good” * Buying Best Witches bath bombs and giving Maura one * Changing my outfit in the middle of the street * Watching a guy dance in the middle of an intersection * Eating watermelon while driving * Exploring an interactive garden with a mosaic piece that included a Bud Light beer box as one of the mixed media pieces * Seeing powerful women create amazing content * Feeling sexy * The last season of New Girl coming back (And Zooey with a nose ring, oh fuck)
