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!


  1. Sounds like your landlady likes you....nice that she was willing to lower the rent. I'm sure she wants someone there who likes the place and doesn't tear it up. Cute that the little boys love your hair too.

  2. Those boys sound pretty awesome. I hope things settle for you soon. I know you can handle it either way though!
