So, let me catch you up. I haven't posted about this particular RL thing much because I didn't want to jinx myself and also because it wasn't that interesting, I think? But anyway - today my sister and I closed on our new house! We are now first-time home owners, and it is very exciting. Now, we won't be moving in for a bit yet - we need to paint, pull up carpets, buy, like, new beds and stuff - but still. The awful icky part is over. We also got all of our stuff out of our storage unit and just piled it in the basement to be taken care of later. I didn't want to pay for another month of storage, and I also just plain hate having my stuff in storage in general. I always worry about it.
BUT IT'S DONE. IT'S FINISHED.
Seriously, my stress and anxiety level the last, hmm, three months or so as we've been going through this home-buying journey have just been absurd. The other day I couldn't find my lunch in the freezer here at home and I had to go lay down in my bedroom and have an ugly-cry.
Now the fun part starts. Of course, I really need to start finding time to work on screenplays. I'm not going to have anything new to submit to competitions and festivals this year besides the TV pilot if I don't get my ass into gear.
