I’m watching HGTV’s Design Star and it’s just making me excited about designing my future home!
I never had a space that was really decked out the way I wanted since maybe highschool. There’s only so much you can do with a dorm room and the two places I’ve rented since graduating … well, I never really put the heart into making them homes to be proud of. I know I’ll probably have a small budget to work with and I’m already pretty thrifty (aka CHEAP lol) but I do want to live in a nice space for a change.
I’m already decorating (in my head) the house I’m falling in love with online. I do this ALL the time. Haha. Since we’re not moving for at least another month, now might be too early to be looking because I feel like the market there is so much more quick turn-around than where I’m living now and I really need to focus on getting the other big duck in its row — a new job. The thought has crossed my mind to just go there regardless and live off my savings — and probably waitressing — while I give myself time to focus on getting serious on a freelance career and writing my novel. But as much as I do want to make some time in my lifetime for those pursuits, I’m not sure now is really the time.
For such a free spirited artist, I really crave stability. I want a job with a steady paycheck and health benefits at least until I can trust that I can make it with an out-of-the-box career.
Maybe that’s the fear talking though. Ugh, that darn fear.
One day I will get it together. LOL
