Change is good for the soul.

No i'm not referring to the loose change you find in your pockets, although that too is good for the soul. Especially when it's just enough to buy a coffee. I'm actually referring to change in life, whether it be a change of scenery, a change of friends, a change in work or even a change of clothes. All this change makes a person feel renewed, rejuvenated and revived. So what change do i have instore...
Well the first obvious one is my move to Seattle. I have been living here for a little over a month now and while i feel it has been fantastic i know there is so much in store. It is hard in winter when all you want to do is hibernate. You look outside at those dark grey clouds and feel the winters chill and just want to sit down with a cup of tea and a biscuit and watch some trashy reality tv. We can't deny ourselves this luxury in life. However as i am only here for 12 months i want to make sure that everyday is special in someway. I feel great just for having come all this way on my own even though sometimes i feel a little daunted by the distance between my homeland and my new semi-permanent residence.
  •  NEW HOUSE!!!
Yes! I got the house i went for. Although feeling confident after leaving on Monday night i wasn't too sure whether i would be the lucky person to get the room. Everyone seemed so nice and chilled and i fell in love with the house. I knew i would be disapointed if i didn't get it but luckily i did! I'm so excited to move in. I'm looking at a February 1st move in date. I feel like this will be another positive chapter in my Seattle adventure. I'm looking forward to being closer to the city, to walking out of my house in the morning and seeing the water in front of the downtown skyline. There is also a really lovely park down the hill of our street which i know is going to be a real treat in the spring and summer time. I'm also looking forward to meeting new people. Moving into a house of 5 is bound to bring about a few new faces. It will also be good living with boys. I'm one of those girls that just seem to bond better with males around.
Thinking of my new house, i'm trying to think of new and inexpensive ways to decorate my new bedroom. I'm really into the idea of hanging fabric from the ceiling/walls. I think it would be real cute to have a few different prints hanging down, maybe behind my bed? Do you have any ideas for bedroom decoration? Please feel free to share with me i really appreciate your input.
I start my new job tomorrow which i am really excited about. While it has been nice being unemployed for two months and feeling like i am permanently on vacation it will be great to get back into a routine and earn some cash as well. In order to travel around America in December i am going to need to save some money. I'm also taking suggestions for places/cities/states to visit on my American road trip. I want to slowly plan out the route so i get to see as much as possible without spending any ridiculous amount of money. It should be a heap of fun. I wonder what it's like to be a barista in thing i'm excited about is the tips! Bring on the customer service.

Anyway i'm going to cook some dinner, have a shower, read some of my book and have an early night.
Happy Thursdays to you all, wherever you are in the world. xox.
