Group of little boys playing outside:
Several at once: I like your hair!
Boy 1: Do you have a boyfriend?
Boy 2: You look like Nicki Minaj!
My landlady has lowered my rent a little and has said that we'll talk in a few months and, if she's doing better financially, she'll lower it a bit more. She really doesn't want me to leave. I got my internet lowered and switched to a cheaper phone plan. I go tomorrow to see if I qualify to sell plasma. Slowly chipping away! It'll be tight but I can make it. At least until summer when the power bill will shoot up. But I can work with that. And I'll keep looking for a new roommate.
I'm happy I don't have to move. I really want to create a home I love and I never feel able to do that if I don't feel stable.
My friend and I are working on What You Really Really Want together. And then will do Beautiful You: A Daily Guide to Radical Self-Acceptance after that. Self help buddies!
