messy brain


Lately, my head has been a big old jumbly mess, much like my room in the above photos (sidenote: I have since cleaned my room). Loads of stuff going on. I'm working an event for my brother in August. I unofficially "applied" for the job by sharing these photos on his FB page. Later that night, he texts me saying,"You're working my event, btw." I couldn't help the grin from spreading across my face. Not that my brother hasn't had me do things for him in the past, but I'm a different person now. I'm more confident. I know I can do it and do it well. Therefore, I'm pretty excited! I'm making lists in my head, like,"I'll need extra batteries for my flash, I'll need all of my memory cards. I'm going to need this and that and this and that." I guarantee, the days of, I will have minor panic attacks. But I can do it. I know I can.
I am growing up! "No shit, Elis." No, really. Yesterday, I planned out my budget for the week and you may think I'm silly, but I was very excited to do it and finish it with some wiggle room left. How I've made it this far without doing such things on a weekly basis, I don't really know, but I've got some big plans for my future and the only way I'm going to be able to execute those plans is to create a budget, stick to it, and save.
I'm so happy right now, it feels like I'm floating. I talked to Laura this week (we both get so busy sometimes that we only have time to text a "hey how are ya?" every once in a while) and Matt and I will see the Bling Ring Saturday. We woke up early (haha, 10am), picked up Dunkin Donuts and some iced coffee. It was delightful. We're rarely out of the house before 11am, he pointed out. We also made the cranky lady behind us in line laugh because he knocked over one of the iced coffees and I said,"That one's yours." It's the little things like summer thunderstorms, donuts, and binge-watching the OC that make me happy.
