My day has kind of been a weird range of emotions. I don't want to complain about my privileged white girl problems too much here, but the house hunt is really really tough. I haven't really disclosed much about how hard it is on here, but twice, we found a perfect place, put an offer down and got it approved, and then swiftly got outbid and losing both places. It's just really discouraging and heart breaking, especially when you get your hopes up on something as huge as a new home.
Today the stress of the hunt kind of got to me (especially being as I still live at home, and I'm starting to really lose it, the straw breaking the camels back today being my dad nagging me about the kind of coffee mug I use wtf), but within 5 minutes of sobbing I got two new emails in my inbox that kind of cheered me up. Both on things related to the growth of my etsy shop. So after that the tears kind got sucked back into my eyeballs and I perked up a bit. One of them was from a magazine I'm a pretty big fan of that wants to collaborate. I'll spill the deets on that when it's official though. But it's funny because when I was in school to become a graphic designer, working for this mag would have been a dream job for me back then, but since I've pursued my own shop as a result of being chewed up by the NYC design workforce, and now that magazine approached me, to work with me. It's kinda funny how things work out, eh?
I guess the moral of the story is to try and recognize the good in your life and take the bad with a grain of salt and do your best to change it (not giving up on this house hunt).
Good things do happen :)
