Tea Time | First Week in The Ville

first week in the ville

It feels so weird to be typing this post as I haven’t done a tea time in so long. I miss it honestly. It was such an awesome way for me to get out what was on my mind without having something “specific” to talk about… even though what’s on my mind does all revolve around one topic: I moved! A few bloggers have my personal Facebook and have probably seen some of my journey, but exactly one week ago, I made the move to my new home… three and a half hours away from where I previously called home.

You’re probably like, “Girl, why did ya go and do that for?!” Well, I got a job! My dream job, actually. Many of you know that I have been studying to be a special education teacher for about four and half years now and I finally graduated in December! Woohoo! 🎉 I honestly can’t believe that I am actually a college graduate or that I’ve got my first job already. I did not see myself getting a job right out because it is so much harder for December graduates, being that school starts in August here. However, I am so proud of myself and my determination to find what sets my soul on fire. I absolutely love my job already and I think my new school is going to be an amazing home.

As far as “titles”, I am now an ECE Resource Teacher at Portland Elementary School in Louisville, KY! It’s crazy when I actually type it out because I’m still not used to actually having the title of “teacher”. It’s been “MSU student”, “student teacher”, “student”, and so many other titles for so long that I forgot what I was actually doing all that work for. I know my mom is smiling down at me, proud.

As for Louisville, I love it! I’ve always wanted to live in a big town and this job has given me that opportunity. You really don’t realize all that you miss out on living in small towns until you make the jump. There are so many different areas of Louisville, so there is something for everyone. I’ve honestly thought about doing some local restaurant/shop reviews as I’ve already looked into some that I think could be real gems. (Would you guys be interested in this?)

Anyway, I think that’s about it for tonight. I’m going to try my best to get back into blogging regularly, but it may only be once or twice a week for now. I have lots of new products to review and put up that I’ve purchased over the last several months. Let me know if there’s anything specific you want to see reviews on!

New Home, New Start

my cat Lily

I’ve got some news for you all! I am now moving into a one-bedroom apartment, on my own. I have never completely alone before so this is going to be a new adventure for me. I am super excited to finally just have a place to myself to do what I’d like but also very nervous. The only reason I’ve always had a roommate is that I get a lot of anxiety being alone in “unprotected” places, I guess you would call it. Since we don’t have security or anything other than the lock on my door for my apartment, it’s weird being here alone. It’s kind of nerve-wracking.

moving out

However, I think I can do it! The plan is to move over on June 30th (yes, only a little over 13 days away). I have not even begun packing and I’m not even sure of where to start. I need to get boxes, organize stuff, get rid of things I don’t use, and clean my place. A friend of mine is actually taking over my two-bedroom, which is why I was able to get the one-bedroom. Being without a roommate, it was nonsense to have a two-bedroom just for me. I will now have my only little corner and it won’t be too incredibly expensive.

Thankfully my brother, nephew, and one of my brother’s friends are going to help me move everything over once the day comes. It’s so hot here in Kentucky so I am really hoping for a cool day whenever we have to do all of that (probably not going to happen). I am very grateful that this is happening a month before student teaching because I don’t think I’d be able to do that and this at the same time. Any of you got big things going on soon? Moving? Got a new pet? New job? Update me in the comments!
