day

Appreciate peace!

How’s it the saying goes, you only realise how much you want it after it’s gone?

Eight days ago my roommate moved out, and since then there’s been no piece and quiet. The couple that own the place have been here ever since. Working away on what I don’t even know. Well, part of it. They’ve spent time cleaning and changed a few cupboards, which I admit is nice. Over-all, they’ve just been here. Doing stuff. And then my new roommate moved in yesterday. So there’s been a lot of hammering and talking, discussions and all in all, just disturbing the peace that I usually feel in my home.

It’s normally really quiet, and appreciate that. but after this week of disturbance I really miss it!

People moving around in the apartment makes me tense all over. I don’t know what they’re gonna do, if they’re doing stuff that will concern me or if they will knock on my door.

Living with a roommate I’ve learned to relax while hearing the normal noises from that, the stove going, the toilet being flushed and stuff like that. But this, boxes being unpacked and furniture being moved, it stresses me out.

I can’t seem to relax like this. But there’s hope. I think roomie will take a few days to settle in, but then I believe the piece and quiet will settle over the apartment again, and I’ll be able to relax and calm down properly again.

Bad mood

It is one of those days.. Im in a bad mood. Look at me the wrong way and I will bite your head off. 

Every small thing annoys me terribly and I’m negative towards everything. 

What do you do then? I mean.. What do you do when that happens? 
Here’s my ideas/options:

  1. Crawl into bed and stay there forever and accept that today is bad.
  2. Go to the gym even though I’m not comfortable there yet – but maybe today is good for that cause it can’t get any worse – and get anger out on the machines.
  3. Force myself to look at things with a brighter mind and hope that the forced attitude will become reality. 

Little bit of homemade art

Honestly, I really have had a nice day today. I’ve been productive and mostly in a good mood. I’ve done stuff. I’ve been outside. I went on walks. I ate real food.

Generally I’ve had a good day – and it’s been too long since that happened last time.

I picked up this flower on my way home from one of the walks and I really love taking photos of flowers. And today I felt inspired to do some editing. I’ve never edited this way before, but I really enjoyed it. Maybe in time I’ll find something worthy of being framed and put onto the wall. Maybe.

It doesn’t really matter. Today I’m just happy I’ve felt good. Already looking forward to that happening again.
