This weekend is going to be crazy for me.  And by crazy, I mean I won't have a minute to think to myself or even breathe.  Which means I may not be able to post much.  Here’s my schedule for this insane wedding weekend:

Thankful for Friday

This week was nothing too special.  I would have to say I’m thankful for that.  
Guillermo and I have had some relaxing days together which mean so much now that all his school orientation business is starting to really take up some serious chunks of his time.  Yesterday we went to a lovely park that runs along the Charles River on the Boston side.  
We lounged on a bench and read for a bit while the sun set in front of us.  
It was pretty perfect.
I also had my orientation at Urban this week.  It was pretty ridiculously boring, but I’ll start my training this upcoming week before I have to jump on the train back to MD for my friends' wedding.  Should be a pretty busy week.

More Progress

Our kitchen is finally all put together! Today Guillermo hung the pot rack that I made while I was in school, and everything is finally coming together. Here are some pictures…

Thankful for Friday

I’m just going to keep the title ‘Thankful for Friday’ because I think it has a nice ring to it, but it looks like I can’t manage to post on-time.  So expect posts Saturdays instead.  -_-
This week, I’m thankful for finding a job!!  I know I posted about it earlier in the week, but I just thought I would re-iterate my excitement.  I still need to find out when my orientation is, but it should be sometime this week and then I’ll start right after!  And did I mention that Urban is literally on the same block as my apartment? Talk about convenient, huh?

Artwork: Up

When Guillermo left his previous job at a digital fabrication lab, he made sure to utilize the machinery one last time to route out a bunch of patterns in a sheet of MDF.  He used a CNC miller and overlayed a bunch of different patterns to create a complex image overall.
Now, I’ll admit, when he brought home a HUGE 4-foot by 8-foot sheet of MDF, I was not impressed.  We were in the middle of packing for the move and I was sure that the sheet had no home in the moving truck.  We already had so much stuff to move, why do we need this piece of MDF that nobody else wanted?!?

Who Just Got Hired?

This girl. 
It’s not exactly a prestigious job at an architecture firm, but hey-it will pay the rent and right now that’s all that matters.  The Urban is literally a one minute walk from my apartment and I think I will really enjoy it! Everyone seems really nice and I’m definitely looking forward to my employee discount. ;)
Orientation is next week sometime and then I start immediately after!  Can’t wait!

Thankful for Friday

Again, I’m sorry I’m a day late.  Being jobless really screws with your sense of time-I can barely remember what month it is anymore.  (Except that I know its August because my birthday is coming up!!)
The apartment is still a mess (although livable) and I got turned down for the interview I had a week or so ago, so I’ve been kinda down lately, but I can honestly say that I am thankful for my friends and family.  My parents have been both emotionally and financially supportive while I struggle to find my way, and my boyfriend was very sweet and let me cry on his shoulder when I got the rejection call.  I am truly blessed to be surrounded by so many loving people and for that, I will be eternally thankful.

The New Place

Hey, all!
I am finally getting around to putting up the pictures of the new apartment that my boyfriend and I just moved in to.  We haven’t really gotten everything to a nice-designy-beautiful stage yet, so I’m only uploading the pictures of the empty rooms so you get an idea of the space. 
Hope you enjoy!
The front of the building-
The hallway from the front door-
(first door on right, bedroom, second on right, living room, first on left, bathroom, second on left, kitchen)
The bedroom-
The living room-
The bathroom (LOVE that tub!!)-
The kitchen (I forgot to take a picture before we unpacked, so that’s the state its in now)-
And….through that door in the kitchen is our balcony-type thing…
And that’s the tour!!
The bedroom doesn’t have any closets in it, but in the hallway there are two so we’ve split them.  (fair is fair, right? even though I could fill one entire closet with my shoes…)
So, what do you guys think?

My old roommates.  Crazy guys, but I miss them so much.
And I miss that stoop….

Thankful for Friday

I know, I know, its Saturday.  Oops.  
I’ve been so busy with the move and all that I totally forgot that yesterday was Friday and I promised you all a post.  I apologize.  Please forgive me.

Anyways, this week I am simply thankful for surviving.  Moving is SUCH A PAIN IN THE YOU-KNOW-WHERE and it has been really tough on me and my boyfriend, both physically and mentally.  Our bodies have definitely taken the brunt of the beating and we are both sore in places we haven’t been sore in a very long time.  Icy-Hot has been our best friend lately.
We are also both still getting used to living together….organizing and trying to find a place for everything can be a challenge when its not just up to you anymore.  We are doing our best to keep our cool and try to see the light at the end of the cardboard-box tunnel.
Hope you all had an awesome week and you are enjoying your weekend!  Anything special planned?
