Yay!

As I said briefly in another thread, Bro has moved out! I do miss him, and I wish him all the best, but my place was just too small for the both of us, and I know we are both much happier now. It'll be three weeks on Tuesday, and I've spent most of that time cleaning, rearranging stuff, and just getting my space back to what it was before he came: MINE. I've taken a bit of time here and there to enjoy the fruit of my efforts, too. Sitting on the couch cuddled next to my own pup, watching whatever I want on telly whenever I want has become one of life's great pleasures. :D

So glad for you VL :D
Brothers are fantastic but they have to move their bums sometimes :D
I too have my own place now. Its just a bedsit and its not in a great area, but it has a double bed in it, a sofa big enough for me to nap on (not fully stretched out but its not tiny) and most kitchen things I need.
I bought a comical camping washing machine that you have to fill with water and drain yourself, but its actually really good and spins clothes quite close to dry.

I've put pictures up and I got nice bedding and actually, I have never felt comfortable in big houses, too many horror films I guess *laughs*.

Most of all its ALL MINE.

I did the washing up topless the other day because I could. I felt so free :D



Another brilliant thing (for the moment anyway) is stopping the anti depressants. I am scared of my next menstrual cycle and that I may end up sobbing in the shower again worried I may kill myself/someone else (which is what was happening every month before I started the pills), but I have me back.
I went out with friends yesterday and didn't have the pouting dread of having to leave the house and socialise which is all I have had this past year. When I smile now feel its actually me smiling and not fake me smiling.
This may all come tumbling down but at the moment I feel great.

Glad you're feeling better Kate and loving the alone time a place of your own affords you.

Hoping to see you in November :D

this is brilliant indeed. So happy you are out of your last place. Your old landlord was a frigging nightmare by the sounds of it. Having your own space is no doubt doing you the world of good. Somewhere to completely relax, and nothing says relaxed like topless washing up.

This is wonderful babe. I get the scared. Hormones are indeed a bitch, I get sobby, irritated, hermity, hate myself and the world and then can 180 and can be laughing at nothing. I swear it gets worse as I get older. All I can say is that a lot of people suffer the same as you do. I say that to mean that a lot of people will understand, they can relate and you are very much not alone. Take it easy on yourself and if you do feel crappy just remember that we all love you very, very much and if you need anything just say. Xxx

He had some real issues.
I genuinely loathed him. Absolutely wish bad things on him. I hope his next lodger shits all over the place, breaks things, sleeps with his boyfriend and then gets him arrested for fraud. (I am teh evols but trust me, the asshat deserves every bad thing that happens to him. I hated him from the 2nd day I lived there. He was that unlikeable. Yes his boyfriend was great.)

I work with someone who is always asking me why I don't take her birth control pill and downplaying my symptoms. Um... I tried that pill, it did absolutely nothing for me.
I work with another person who has 1 hour of cramps per cycle. That is it. She had 2 hours of cramps this week and was acting like the end of the world.
These types of people make me want to kill even more.

I totally understand that a lot of people go through what I do *hugs Astrid*, but my God its so hard. Being a woman is so so hard and the world treats us like shit.

Women rule. Fact.

He was indeed a total and utter asshat. I hope his next tenant is twice as bad as him! So, so happy you are away from that environment. You did amazingly well to cope for so long.

Gah, these people. I get at least three days of pain. It's like cockscrews in ovaries and a severe kicking in the bottom of my spine. I also get the delight of a dicky tummy and all the hate too. I love when people say, have you tried painkillers, no you f*cking idiot I was hoping the magical pain fairies would take it away.
Some people are idiots.
What I meant is that there are probably more people around you that feel this way than you think. Not to lessen what you are feeling in any way (I hope that came across) just that you ain't alone babe. No one can know what you are going through but we can relate and support babe. I know that a kind word from you ladies, even if it's just something funny on FB can lift my day. X
Love ya.

Yay for new place! I want to see it - especially the comical washing machine. :lol:

Glad to hear things are better so far without the meds too. I think sometimes you don't notice how much effect they're having until you stop them. Ups and downs have their own perils, but they're sometimes preferable to flatness. Enjoy the ups and know that we'll be here and will try to protect you in the bad times. *hugs*

Brilliant! Just been out to the supermarket. Bumped into a lady who works at my last place. She said it's terrible. Breakfast has been stopped. Catering for meetings has been stopped. Shelves are empty. Prices have quadrupled, only one 'choice' of hot meal a day and the never get more than 3 customers a day. Girl who took over is fed up of hearing 'it's not as good as when Paul was here' and basically she can't cook for toffee! Apparently, still after 8 months I'm spoken of fondly. But the best bit? The bit that's made my day, that's bought a smile to my face and a spring to my step? At the end of this financial year, the catering operation is being closed down at that site and scumpass will have lost that contract! Bet they're pleased they treated me like shit and forced me out! It's true, he who laughs last, laughs the loudest!!! Up yours asshats! *raises v's*

Brilliant!

After wading through patches of discouragement and depression, after hemming and hawing and mulling things over, I finally came to the conclusion that Getting Schooled won't go anywhere if I don't put it in front of someone with more Hollywood power than my Facebook set. Almost as soon as I'd decided for sure that that's the route to take, not one, but *two* potential opportunities to pitch to producers the show cropped up. If that's not a sign I'm heading the right way, I don't know what is!

I spent much of today tweaking my treatment and resume, and submitted to my first production company! I'm not even scared or anything (right now). Just pleased that I've jumped that first hurdle. Hopefully having done so will make it easier to do it again and again until someone sees my vision and wants to partner with me in bringing it to life. :D
