Summer Rip-Off

It's been a whole week since I've moved back in with Moms and Pops for the summer. It's odd not going back to my apartment every night, but it's nice being "home." I say "home" because it's not the same as it once was. I guess that's what happens when you leave the nest. I'm having a hard time adjusting. Luckily, this is only temporary because I made the decision that the presumed rent will be better spent in España. It's such a great motivator; I never want to be in the position of moving back in because of difficulties making ends meet. I refuse.

So, what have I been doing with my time? I anticipated a quick return to retail at Half-of-Half, but so far that has not been the case. It's funny to think that last summer I was working two jobs. It's not that I need the money, I need the distraction, something to do with myself, people to be around before I go mad. Instead, I find myself sleeping in until noon, latest 2pm, and killing time until 10pm, when all the fun usually starts up. It's become a vicious cycle, one I hope to escape, starting Monday.

I can't really complain though. It's nice to be available to do stuff, having two jobs usually got in the way of activities that started before 10pm. So far, I've gone to an outdoor-hippie-let's-paint-our-bodies-and-blow-bubbles kind of shindig, Donaghey Scholars picnic, the Chile Benefit where I volunteered (whored?) myself out for a kissing booth--it was for a good cause!, the typical slue of shows, spontaneous game nights, and the Argenta Art Walk. 
Yeah, I really can't complain...unless I run out of funds!!!

Speaking of dwindling funds, I really ought to stay away from any kind of thrift/vintage/ retail store. I've scored some awesome finds on the cheap, but man! that stuff sure does add up! I go in looking for one specific item and find it, along with a ton of other awesome stuff that's been on my mental wish-list of goods. I've started a second major closet purge in hopes of having a yard sale. I also have hopes of making/selling crafts on etsy. Oh, and taking my nicer, newer pieces to consignment.

Ah, so many ideas, so much to do to have them realized. 
Starting Monday.

Tomorrow I get to model for the lovely Starr Crow of A Thought is the Blossom!!! 
We'll see how that goes.

So do you start work on Monday? Also, you should consider volunteering somewhere if you just want to stay busy!! Let me know if you do have a garage sale for money for Spain; I know Ali will be all over it. Good luck on the modeling--post pics!

No, I stop being a lazy bum starting Monday. I have a volunteering gig on either Tuesday or Wednesday. Didn't the kissing booth count as volunteering?

Garage sale is a go, just need to organize my junks and set a date. I'll probably make a FB event.

And yesh, photos are a must.
