I need to write and watch anime more.
I have no major updates, but I thought it was at least time to check in so that I can access how I've been feeling properly.
I decided that I'm not going to let these finances stress me out. I'll do what I can for the next month or so, and I won't do what I can't. I can't sit here and feel stressed because I still don't know if Rob's going to let me move in and when that's going to happen and paying rent and my credit and xyz. I'm just going to have faith that everything will work out in this courtroom come June 29. Like I said earlier, if he hasn't responded by the first of June...I might want to look into getting a lawyer. Only because I don't have any experience in the courtroom and I know he'll probably have his lawyer too.
Btw, I got some mail from a attorney firm saying that I should hire them since they realized that I had recently filed a lawsuit. I might've considered them...but...something in the last sentence (that was in larger font and bold) was misspelled. A big no-no when you're soliciting business.
Things at Rob are fine. I get frustrated often...not because I'm not happy...but there are things here that I want done...and I want them done quickly. But Rob is stubborn and continuing to be him so I feel that things aren't moving. We don't have the washer/dryer, we don't have the money to get the bathroom redone. I just feel like, if I didn't have to pay $750 in rent each month...that could easily go towards the reno, but whatevs....again...it's something that I just can't worry about because at this point, I have no control over it.
We're going to see Ciara today!!! She'll be performing at the Fillmore tonight at 8pm and I'm trying to get there EARLY to be in the VERY front. Rob and I will be staying at the Residence Inn in Gerogetown/Foggy Bottom. A good area and a much better rate than where we were staying near Capitol Hill. $80 > $109 in terms of a good rate. I told Rob that I really wasn't trying to pay that much so let's stay outside of the city, mostly because I knew I was not going to find that discount form that Brooke gave me (and I never used ). And apparently, Hotel Tonight guests (the app that's hit or miss, but this time was definitely a HIT) get free parking Nonetheless, I'm very excited to see Ciara. We're supposed to be doing brunch tomorrow morning, but Justin and Marlon already opted out...which is fine. But now I'm feeling I don't want to do brunch anymore...and...I...might opt for light drinks after the concert? Who knows.
Work is okay. It's up and down. Trying to take things to the next level. Just thought of this idea to identify huge blog influencers for the Philadelphia area and invite them to stay with us, maybe have a light reception? In return they'll write about our property. Blogs have a much more niche and attention audience than something like the Inquirer or the NYT. I've been thinking about applying for the CVB....to be Julie Coker's assistant...which I might still do but I just feel like there's a lot more I could've explored and played with in my position that I kind of want to do. I would love to at least get an interview to sharpen my skills if nothing else.
I keep telling Meredith that I don't want to do hotels anymore and I would love to do Tourism & Travel at a broader scope. For instance, instead of working for a single hotel, work for an entire city. Meredith also told me about some friends she has that have experience in a marketing firm and on-property and how that works. I also recently went to a presentation by Miles Marketing that made me really realize that I didn't know s**t about Marketing. I told Meredith that once I get settled into living with Rob I can really get back on track with my life.
Adjusting to living here has been a bit of a challenge. Things like writing and watching anime, things that help calm & pacify my mind and spirit, I haven't figured out how to do here. Even now I'm writing in between eating breakfast with Robert, not giving my full attention to either That and I have to get my workout schedule together. I was thinking about leaving City Fitness and joined Fit Gym in University City. City Fit is in NoLibs, Old City, South St, and South Philly. Hopefully they'll think about opening a location here. My only thing is...City Fit is $50 with all the classes I can ever want to take AND late hours AND a 24-hour location. Fit Gym has limited hours and you have to pay for classes BUT IT'S CLOSER! I need to stop by and see how crowded that bixch gets. I imagine that it'd be mostly students from Drexel or Penn, but they have a free gym on campus...sooo....
Side note: I shade Frozen...but I love this movie. And Idina Menzel sounds flawless.
That's all I have for now.
