The new apartment.

UGH! I just wrote this entire post, pictures included….. and something happened, I am not sure exactly what happened, but the whole thing was gone. So lets try this again!

I have been asked a few times to post pictures of my new apartment, so here it is. I moved to the new Ink Block apartments in the South End. We live above the new Whole Foods- there is literally an elevator straight to the doors of WF- safe to say I am going broke.

Anyway, this post is going to have way more pictures than writing (I am sure you are all excited about that…)

When you walk into our apartment you see a rolling bar that has alcohol on it (duh) and some of me and Adams little memories and ‘treasures’

Then you look straight and see our living area (if you call it that in such a small place)… where Sammy hangs! This is really his apartment and we just live in it.

There is a floor to ceiling window which I love. At night the skyline area is pretty, and it is right near the harbor so whenever there is a fireworks show- we get a home viewing!

If you couldn’t tell, I got into the fall spirit a bit.

Meet Adam!

       So lets talk about Adam. Hi Adam! 
Some of you may be curious as to how I met this guy that is always in my pictures, or who I am always mentioning- its sort of a funny story. When I finally moved all of my things into my apartment on state street in Boston, my mother and I went out to eat at a restaurant right down the street that was fairly new. Our waiter was incredibly friendly! I told him how I was moving right up the street and he asked me if I was looking for a job because they were on the lookout for a new hostess. My mom of course was like “YOU SHOULD DO IT.” I said “why not” and took the application. I needed my resume, which I did not have so I had to wait to fill it out and drop it off.¬†
       The first month of me living on state street, my roommate was out of the country- so I was actually interested in getting this job. 
I went back in a few days later and dropped the resume off, and also sat down for a bite to eat. The GM came over to introduce himself, and told me to come in on Wednesday for an interview. I agreed, and that was that. 
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†Wednesday came along, I got ready for the interview- and headed over to the restaurant. I asked for Adam upon arrival, two girls looked around awkwardly and told me to ‘hold on.’ So I did. Then they came back to inform me that Adam had an “emergency” and was out, that he would give me a call soon to reschedule.¬†
Okay… I thought it was unprofessional, but whatever shit happens (I know that all too well). 
A few days later I got a missed call from a number I didn’t know, I ignored it like I usually do‚Ķ and just listen to the voicemail if they leave one. This person did‚Ķ It was Adam. He apologized for missing the interview and asked me to call him back, so I did… “I am so sorry, please come in tomorrow I promise I won’t miss this interview unless I am struck by lightning‚Ķ” (I am sure he said this differently I just know being struck by lightning was used). He seemed incredibly apologetic so I of course agreed.¬†
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†The next day I got ready and headed over for the interview‚Ķ. “Hi I am here to meet Adam for an interview‚Ķ” this girl looked at me, “Okay he is not here yet, so you know what, here is the forms you have the job.” I filled out the paperwork and she told me to come in on Tuesday. I wasn’t too fond of Adam at this point.¬†
I started on that Tuesday- no one was there to train me. The start of this job was sort of disastrous, but I got through it. 
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† A few weeks in, Adam and I had become somewhat friendly. He would ask me “how is it going, do you need any help?” when the other manager was a complete DOUCHE. Adam was the more professional one (which seems odd from the earlier part of the story, but I did later learn that he was dealing with a family emergency).
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† One day he came and stood behind the hostess desk with me and asked about my ‘story.’ I told him a little bit of my life, and blogs purpose, and in turn he shared with me about how his mom has Kidney disease and has been on dialysis for quite awhile. A family came in, in the midst of our chat and I had to take them to their seat. It was interested because as I walked back from seating this family I noticed Adam was still there waiting to finish our talk, I thought it was sweet.¬†
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†After that we became relatively talkative- but I never saw that going any further. I just thought he was a nice guy, and also he was my boss so I couldn’t not talk to him ha.¬†
       Aside from being GM, he was also in charge of all the social media stuff for the restaurant, so after browsing my resume (hmmm, wonder why he was doing that?!) he asked me if I wanted to help with the social media since I had a lot of background with that type of stuff. I said of course. 
He asked me if I wanted to “meet up and talk about the social media, maybe over dinner‚Ķon me” hm, am I over thinking this or does this guy want to take me on a date?
We did go out, and it was fun. We had a lot to talk about, and these dinner dates became more and more frequent. He kissed me, and I certainly wasn’t opposed to it. And from there our lives just mended. We always spoke. We spent all of our free time together, and we couldn’t keep our hands off of each other while at work (which was a problem, and left to me leaving‚Ķ but I will leave that for another post).¬†

I am so happy I met this man, he brings out the best possible side of me. I am the crazy and he is the sane, we balance each other out. He motivates me, he looks at me like I am the best possible thing in existence, I have never been looked at quite the way he looks at me. It gives me chills. He calls me beautiful at least 10 times a day, and the word love is used consistently within conversation. He would jump in front a bullet for me, I have no doubts, and I would do the same for him. Our friendship blossomed into this relationship that has changed my life. I had given up men entirely, I was okay with being single, but he came into my life and just flipped everything upside down. This unconditional love he shows me on a daily basis is so pure and true is unlike anything I have ever felt before. 

He also read my blog well before our relationship- so he knew all about me story, phewwww. 

Hello There!

      Alright my blogging consistency is terrible. But I have a full time job, I moved to a new place, and have also had some traumatic things occur … but all in all, I am okay with not blogging. Life is moving, and instead of apologizing to the blogging community- I am happy with where life is moving, and where I am at this moment. 
      Buttttt, regardless of the happiness I have missed this little nook I have to vent/talk/bitch (vent and bitch are two different things)… so here I am, back at it.
And where do I begin? My job is great! I love the people I work with… and have become incredibly close with some of them. My pup pup- he is 5 months now!!! Yes… that little beeb in the post below is 5 months, crazy right? Speaking of 5 months… he gets his balls chopped (gruesome, I know) next month! Which he is not excited about (he only has one ball though, ask me about that for another post), but I am! He will become less cray cray. 
¬† ¬† ¬† My Boyfriend‚Ķ ahhh where do I begin? It is weird for me to even explain this. I remember a year ago I was sitting in my room upset about past relationships, thinking I was destined to never meet a man again, nor did I have any desire to. I even posted an entire post related to ‘WHY I AM SINGLE’. During that time I tested out dating sites- nothing ever came from it, but I didn’t care. I was okay being alone. Some people don’t meet someone that they are with for the rest of their lives and they are okay‚ĶI thought I would be okay. But then I met Adam (while I was working as a hostess.. funny story that can be told in another blog post), and things changed. I pushed him away as much as I possibly could- helloooo I am a boss, a bad ass single female who needs NO man- but yet I wanted to be around him at every single moment possible. When I had a funny story- he was the one I needed to tell, when things got difficult‚Ķ I just needed him to comfort me. This relationship was different, he was kind and gentle, yet put me in my place and motivated me to work harder for what I wanted. He was supportive, a best friend, the kindest man I’ve ever known, and someone who has shown my unconditional love- a love I have never experienced aside from family members. So that is where we are.¬†
¬† ¬† ¬†I am starring at the prettiest view of Boston, and Adam is passed out so peacefully‚Ķlet me tell you about that in another blog post too! I am sorry I am leaving so much blank, but seriously I don’t want to having nada to blog about and go MIA again, so I am leaving some things open ended.¬†
     Also, I need to make a special mention for my auntie Madeline who passed away on mothers day. She was the hardest, toughest, and at the same time, the kindest woman I have ever known- and she has a sea of people up in heaven waiting for her. I know that Ashley will be waiting with open arms. 


¬† ¬† Thank you everyone for sticking with me during this long hiatus- life is great aside from a few hiccups…And I will make sure to keep updating!¬†

Realizations.

      

¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† I am sitting watching TV‚Ķ and my mind is racing with things that have been bugging me, things that are making me anxious (screw you, anxiety) but then I was slapped with a realization, I have been taking the positive things for granted‚Ķ I have been letting these little annoyances get me down, making me (like usual) an anxious mess… all the while, completely over looking the things that should make me smile from ear to ear‚Ķ and trust me, there have definitely been so many positives to take note of.¬†
     So I wanted to dedicate this post to one of those positives- moving in with one of my best friends, Mai. 
      The apartment is adorable, it is in a great location, right in the financial district of Boston, and it makes me happy. I just find such a peace of mind being here. I have been able to get so much done with my writing/internship, and self care. So that is why I needed to dedicate this post to my recent move.
Here is Mai and I. She is fabulous, intelligent and scarily similar to myself. I am so thankful we have become such close friends.
This is the APT before I moved in…
After the move in…
My bedroom…

My bathroom… I could live in the shower to be honest
This view thoughhhhhh

Remember, try to look at the positives in life rather than the negatives.
