Feel The Pain

So I have been hitting the gym more and more often since I parted ways with my friend. Every day my arms get that nice little stretching pain you get after a great workout. I look in the mirror and I get happier and more satisfied each time. Everything is starting to look more cut. Everything is starting to get more pumped. I’ve even lost about twelve pounds this month. I think now that I am more focused on me I can finally get what I want. I want a better body. I want to be better at my job. I want better things to put around my house. I’ve been doing more online shopping. Doing more runs. Doing more of everything that makes me happy. It’s been a lot of self work lately. I just look around my place and realize what needs to be done. I feel like this isn’t even a home anymore because nothing is mine. Almost everything I own is from someone else. The computer desk I found, the couch …

Medication And Snapchats

Still feeling a bit sick. No temperature which is a little weird. Nose keeps running, sneezing, and I feel exhausted. I hate being sick. It always reminds me of the time I had pneumonia. I fear it will get worse and that I will almost die (again). But I’m not the type to just lay in bed. I’m not a homebody which means even when I’m sick I still feel the need to keep moving around. To me, homebody is just a fancy way of saying “I’m lazy with a professional title”. That is not me. I’m always up and out. Even when I’m at home I always manage my time with something useful. So the day started as if I was healthy. I got up, got dressed, watched a show on Netflix, then I was off to get a haircut. My Marine drill is tomorrow so I didn’t really even have a choice in that. I got to my haircut place and the girl that normally does my hair sat me down in the …

Under The Weather

Finally got my apartment all finished up. Unfortunately I’m sick in bed and typing this on my phone. Hopefully a few tiny cups of liquid medicine and my grapefruit juice will get me back up on my feet in no time. Maybe someone babying me through this couldn’t hurt, but beggars can’t be choosers now can we? So finally got my back room done. Nothing too special. Hung up a few video game posters and some paintings from my moms friend. It’s one of my favorite pieces she’s painted. Cost a few pretty pennies, but that’s not the important part. The most important thing to me is that this piece has always been my favorite. It was a gift to our family when we last visited her friend. I admired the artwork on her wall and poof! She took it off her wall and handed it to us. Just as simple as that. From her very own art studio as well! She gave it to us because we were like family to her. Like I …

Part 1 of 4

Finally got my living room turned into my fitness room. There’s still a dinner table for two. I was up and at it for about six hours. Moving my couch to the back and moving my weights to the front. It almost seemed never ending. Sometimes when moving you make a bigger mess than you anticipate. Looking at it now, it looks like I just moved into my apartment again. There’s just so much stuff everywhere, but at least my front room is all cleaned up and finished. Next is my bedroom, kitchen, and the back room. They’re all sort of in a big pile of a mess. It’s a good thing I’ll be working a night shift today. I’ll just spend most of my day tomorrow finishing up the back room. I’m not too worried about the bedroom since I do nothing but sleep there. This just makes me want a house so bad. I know I will love how everything will look once its all set up, but I’m just going to be …
