The neurologist and the cleaning

Every time I visit a doctor I want to give him or her good news, to show them that their treatment is working. It was no different this morning when I went to see my neurologist for my routine 6 month appointment. I had nothing but good news to tell him: 1) still seizure free … Continue reading The neurologist and the cleaning

Summer’s over but the work is not

So, summer is officially over tomorrow. This means that our work on the apartment/house will mostly have to be done on weekends so I don't know if we will be making as much progress as we did during the last two months. However, I will be in charge of any work that needs to be … Continue reading Summer’s over but the work is not

Keep calm, we’re near the deadline

We're about two months into our whole remodeling/moving adventure recently started doubting if we were going to finish in time. We had a deadline because my mom starts work on August first. What's not done by next Wednesday will have to wait for the weekends. That being said, I think we just might get this … Continue reading Keep calm, we’re near the deadline

The little jobs make a big difference

I write to you extremely tired again after another long but successful day  working on my new apartment. We, my grandpa and I, did so many things today, some very small, others not so much. Our first and, I would say most important, task of the day was changing the door knobs. First they were … Continue reading The little jobs make a big difference

Hard work continues

After a brief break from the remodeling, we got some work done today. It wasn't much, but I felt like I actually knew what I was doing, so my mom and I were trying to finish putting together one of the Ikea cabinets for my kitchen. Everything went well after I moved some screws that … Continue reading Hard work continues

More color!

Now we're painting another room, a bigger room. We started today but didn't finish painting the living room/kitchen. We painted about half of it, maybe a little more and started putting together my kitchen cabinets. This means my kitchen is partly done, I have a stove and a cabinet without doors, drawers or counter top. … Continue reading More color!

Painting with color

This morning we painted my whole room, it's not a big room, but we painted all of it before lunch. By all of it I mean we even painted the door frames and where the air conditioner is going to be. I didn't really understand the need for that, the air conditioner will cover that, … Continue reading Painting with color

Time to paint

The day finally came, started painting the apartment today. We began in my room, but before that we had to cover any holes on the walls with putty, which I had started, but somehow there were still some left. When we were done with that, we each had a different chore to paint the room … Continue reading Time to paint

Focus T25- I finished!

I'm happy to say I have completed the Focus T25 videos, all 10 weeks and I am alive. There really was nothing to be scared of, at least as long as you do it at your own speed and level. That's exactly what I did, I followed the modifier when I had to and followed … Continue reading Focus T25- I finished!

One more job interview 

Today I found a blog post from two years ago. This was about a job interview, one that didn't go well because I didn't get it; I don't even remember what job it was.  This two years later and I'm still in the same place, nervous after job interviews, doubting if the interview yesterday went … Continue reading One more job interview
