SOME THINGS ARE KINDA BAD RIGHT NOW, OTHER THINGS ARE REALLY GREAT.
let me toot my own horn for once!

i was recently hired at dogwood coffee. i make a living wage, i make awesome tips (compared to dbros, which was SHITTIPS), they have 8hr shifts, so i don't have to work 7 days a week just to get 30hrs. also, there are maybe actually NO RULES, which for me, is a little difficult to wrap my brain around, but also makes my brain feel SO GOOD. i forgot what it feels like to be hired at a job as an adult and then TREATED LIKE AN ADULT. it feels amazing. also, my barista skillz are growing exponentially each shift and i love that feeling. also, in 90ish days, i will have HEALTH INSURANCE, which is great because the insurance i'm on now (my parent's's's) runs out when i turn 26, in EXACTLY 8 MONTHS. also, pretty soon, they are opening a coffee bar in VENTURE NORTH, a north mpls bike shop geared towards women & children (more than the standerd brobikeshop of mpls) where i will work a few days a week in a tiny space with holly, the badasssss lady who got me this job / who i could talk to about vegan foodz with all day.

i have plans that have felt EONS away because of money issues and i feel like now i can actually make some things happen in the next five years. also, my parents have officially mostly stopped worrying about me because of the insurance thing.

i am also drinking a lot less, which feels good. i still love booze waaaay more than i probably should (drinking a 650ml cider right now and wishing i had a second one for the rest of my evening) but i also don't feel sad in the way i did appx 1.5 years ago when i just started drinking 6 tallboys a night, kind of out of nowhere.

i am also totally accidentally barely smoking anymore. it feels really strange, because i used to always say that smoking was my #1 vice and something that i never really wanted to quit. i still haven't QUIT in a real way - i smoke the occasional cigarette - i had 3 or 4 the other night at corrie & cedric's wedding reception - but that's nothing compared the 1/2-a-pack-ish (sometimes less, frequently more) a day i had been going through for the past ~6years.

some other things are weird, but not at all so weird i need to vent about them. i am just 7/8 drunk right now i feel super posi about what is going on in ~~*~*~**MaH wOrLd**~*~*~~
