I Am Moving

Hiya! πŸ˜ƒ

Sorry for my absence lately. It’s for a great reason though!

I am moving apartments!!!


Our neighbors moved out and their apartment was completely re-done. Their pipes connect to ours and both our pipes are collapsing in on themselves. So the owner moved us into the newly re-done apartment. Otherwise, they’d have to tear up the newly done flooring and walls in the living room and kitchen.

Whereas our apartment was crawling with roaches (as you well know). Dude they had gotten baaad.

Crawling while we’re sleeping, in all our foods, living in our trashcans, our fridge. Breaking our microwaves, blotting out the numbers on our alarm clocks. Burrowing into our thousands of dollars worth oak furniture. A nightmare.

I had to keep my underwear in Ziploc bags. πŸ˜‘


Since I was born, our family has moved twelve times. We have it down. Figured this would be easy, as usual.

And then we had to move without carrying cockroaches into our new and sealed off apartment…😡

Which is taking FOREVER. Literally. We are six days in. And not done yet.

But I am SO EXCITED!!! Because NO MORE COCKROACHES!!!!!!!!!!!!



But anywho.Β 

My presence here will be pretty sporadic for the next week as well.

No worries, I’m not disappearing.Β 

Just drowning in roaches, cleaner spray bottles, paper towels, and rubber gloves.


One totally cool thing, though, check it out…

I put on some cheap glue-on fake nails. I went that route because they are extremely cheap and don’t hurt my nails as much as acrylics. Not that I’ve ever had acrylic nails. They seem like way too much work. But I can’t stand constantly painting my nails, chipping them, filing them, re-painting them, etc. Plus these fake ones will sound amazing for ASMR. I feel kinda goofy for totally loving something so goofy and girly, but yeah, I’m totally loving it. Kinda a little in love.

Can you be in love, a little?

I dunno about that.

They are just nails so I don’t know that it really matters.

Also, I need more sleep. πŸ€ͺπŸ€ͺ

  1. So….is your landlord going to fumigate your old apt??? And is he gonna fix the pipes? Otherwise those roachs will just move next door 😬

    Your nails look great – I should do that to mine. Your next story should be Ode to a Roach, and how cocky they are πŸ˜† Love ya!

    1. Yeah, he’s in the process of fixing the pipes right now actually. 😁 It is SO loud. I walk into the kitchen and my feet vibrate as they use their jackhammer. 🀣
      I know what you mean though. We’ve already had a handful of roaches let themselves in. (And then promptly get chased and squished with an overreaction of squishing.)
      We’re trying to figure out when they’re going to plug up a few more holes leading next door and when they’re going to spray our old apartment next door. They had to wait because they don’t spray when it’s raining. But we’re going to handle it. We must. Or I might go insane. πŸ˜€

      Thank you! I have been wanting to do something fun with my nails for a while but felt too “bull in china shop-y”. Like I shouldn’t have bothered since I’m not uber “girly” or whatever. But I decided, who cares. I’m allowed to do whatever I want with my own body. And I can be just as feminine as I want to be.

      Love you lady.

  2. Bugs, aggghhhhh! Been there, tho a very long time ago & I was young & it was the adults’ problem to solve. Right now I’m having a mice problem, but at least they’re cute. I’m so glad you’re getting away from the creepy crawlies, plus moving into a cooler apartment. Yay!

    Your new nails are so nice and neat and perfect! Such things can relax the mind and warm the soul. We need nice things we can look at and say, Ahhhhh, I sooooo love this. Enjoy! :-}

    1. “at least they’re cute”
      I love you so freaking much!!!

      Thank you. πŸ¦‹πŸ¦‹ It is nice to be reminded that enjoying the little things is a good thing.

  3. Sometimes it’s the little things, like cool nails, that give us a thrill! Good to have that cheery thing this week as you’re moving. Good luck with the rest of the move and congrats on the new roachless abode!!
