Hey everyone! Sorry for the later post (I’m sure you were all DYING of anticipation). I tried to sleep in since I didn’t sleep well (see below), went on a run, showered, had breakfast and now I’m just getting to a coffee shop to post this!


1. Have any of you ever been a little paranoid when you move into your apartment? The first week or so when I move I’m always a little freaked out that someone will try and break in at night. I realize this is completely irrational, but I literally couldn’t sleep my first new nights and found myself googling “police reports at ____ (my address)” at 2am… Sigh. The joys of living alone.



2. I’ve been volunteering once a week with a legal aid clinic and I’m so glad I decided to do this because it gets me out of the apartment and feeling human! I LOVE getting dressed and joining everyone in their morning commute. I’m sure several months into a job I’d get tired of this, but right now it makes me feel like I have a purpose in life.

3. Speaking of work, now that I’m about moved in I really need to focus on my job search… *sigh*. I feel like life is about to get depressing.





5. Has anyone heard of ZipCar? I think it might just be a Chicago thing, but I signed up so that I pay a $60 annual fee  to join and then anywhere from $8-$12 per hour (depending on type of car) to use a zip car in the city. Since I feel like I need a car more and more these days, it’s a great way to have access to one when I need it. I just reserve a car beforehand and go pick one up at one of their many locations around the city.


6. You all probably don’t remember, but a long, long time ago I mentioned that a friend of mine got me started on following Blue II on twitter (and now instagram). He was the mascot for Butler University in Indiana and SO cute. Sadly, he passed away this weekend, and I’m most sad for their other dog, Trip (the new mascot) since he lost his buddy. How cute were they?!?



7. I will FINALLY have internet tonight! I am so excited, although it’s been nice to not be attached to my computer. Although horribly inconvenient.


8. So I finally put away all my kitchen stuff last night and EVERYTHING except the microwave fits! I’m shocked to be quite honest.


9. Have a great Thursday!



Anyone else paranoid like I am?

What’s your view from your apartment?

Any tips to keep me from feeling awful about my life during my job search?
