Phoenixking 748 Posted December 6, 2019 Author Share Posted December 6, 2019 Day 3. "The emptied room." We went away for a day or two. She's about to move in with me. We have a joint account, we pay for stuff together, we posted about it online and there's half an army of friends and family helping out with moving her stuff to my place. Excuse me, our place. I stood in one of the emptied rooms today, we cleared it out to be able to stack the boxes we'll be unpacked for a few days, and suddenly it dawned on me: this is really happening. We've been an item for a year now and we couldn't be happier. I can be naked and vulnerable and show all of my ugliest sides and she'd never run. I'm so happy she's here. We went snowboarding on the first day, checked into the hotel later that day and I had called ahead and made sure there was some bubbly and some rose petals. She was so surprised! The two days were meant as a celebration of our first year together. But also to take some pressure off of everything. We'd been stressed to the max and we'd already splurged on some thing last weekend as a way to ease some of the tension. But combining Krav Maga and snowboarding and just general tomfoolery was great. We had great food, free drinks and lots of fun. Tomorrow and the day after might feel very chaotic. We've prepped for everything rather properly though. But at the end of the story, the appartment will be filled with boxes, stuff will be everywhere and it's going to take a while to actually get the new furniture where we want them to and to unpack the boxes. So our home will be a bit of a mess for a while and that can be a bit of a trigger for me. What's left to do? -I am almost done with cleaning out my regular inbox, the other one still requires some attention. -The important documents lying around are the next thing on the list. Bills and stuff. But important nevertheless. -I should try to get all my paycheck slips and send it to the company that paid me for a few months of sick leave, they need them to pay out the final amounts. -I bought some stuff online and my weight scale gave an error. I sent them a message asking why the payment didn't go through. I really want to make sure I get that scale. -I got a new computer! There's still some programs missing, like an antivirus and other stuff. -I should probably try and go pick up my old computer from the shop. I could then remove some RAM-cards and my old drive and see if I can implant it in the new one to make it faster. -I want to start posting stuff on my social media and be funny and get popular to make sure that when I launch my business, I can hitch onto the already present growth online -I should try to contact, review and coordinate with my friend, the graphic designer, to talk about my social media, color codes, a website and content -I want to get a haircut. -I want to contact my barber and a tailor to doublecheck if everything is set for the big birthday party in April. I'm getting a tailored suit and hope to lose enough weight by then to have an okay body and maintain that or I won't fit my suit anymore. -I should try to contact a company called SABAM to make sure that whenever my face or voice is used commercially, somebody checks if it's legal and if I get paid properly. It seems and impossible mission to do this myself, so I want to find somebody who can. -I want to check out a company called win-winner, because they help out start-ups like mine -I want to contact a few banks about small business loans to compare their rates and also contact those same banks and my own independant insurance broker to look at different insurance products for start-ups and how I could benefit from those personally and perhaps with my girl in tow -I want to contact DeAuteurs, a company that pays out royalties for scripts and written media, I should get some help with this asap. -I want to check out VOKA, another company that helps out startups -I want to check out SMARTbe, a company that helps the payment and administration of freelancers -I want to binge the E-learning of the place I just got my business education from, it's basic, but all knowledge is good knowledge -I want to get more gigs as a training actor -I want to ask my local government what kind of programmes they have in place for startups like mine -I wantto check out something called startit.be; another company for startups -I've sold the washing machine and the sofa. All that's left is my table, but for now we'll probably just put it to the side since we can dismount the table legs and pack it up. This has become less of a priority. Recent highlight: I usually can't keep my mouth shut about surprises because I'm so enthousiastic about them. But this time, I got her! She went into the hotel room with a blank face and was almost crying tears of joy. She told me nobody had ever done such a thing for her. Rose petals, balloons, romantic lights, Prosecco, ... It felt great to surprise her like that. Budget status: I still need to get paid for the Burger King ad. But it should come next week. The past two days we've used the joint account for the first time to pay things and honestly, it went rather smoothly. It's going to be great being able to pay twice as much stuff without having to worry. One of these days, when there's time, I'd like to make a new budget file or continue the old one when I succeed in finally picking up my old PC. My one goal for the next 24h: Do best tomorrow on moving day ? Maintained habits: -Daily Japanese lesson - If I'm to believe the app, I'm on a 11-day streak now. -Make the bed - Didn't have to make the hotel bed ? -Drink enough water - Despite having packed lots of water, I've been dehydrated a bit for the past two days because of cocktails and coffee. If I spend days at home, I'm usually fine because there's always a water bottle nearby. But whenever I'm on the road or doing something besides working from home, I lose this streak in an instant. -Brush teeth two times a day, floss and clean once a day - Even did it at the hotel. But my current dental floss is crap. But I haven't been able to go out and get some new stuff. -No daydrinking at home alone - I feel like I can't remember the last time I did this. I'm glad I took this new habit on. -Meditation - It seems that it's hard for me to get this one into my patterns. But slow and steady wins the race, I guess. I wanted to do it today, but I'm just sooo tired. I'll fall asleep in a heartbeat later. The past two days have been imperative for relieving some stress, Krav Maga too. I was actually looking forward to trying to meditate today. But I'm afraid I'll just doze off ? -Exercise once this week - I had Krav Maga, then yesterday there was about 4 hours of snowboarding and today we walked around town a lot. My feet and legs hurt a little ? Also tomorrow is moving day so I feel like this week is right on track in terms of exercise. I just wish I had those cool weight scales already. I wonder if I lost any weight this week because of all of the activity. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
