14/56 Too much empathy

One of the things that this experience is teaching me, is that too much empathy is not good. At first, I worried for me and all the other neighbours in my situation. Really imagining their thughts, their stress, their worries. Then I found the two potential housemates, and I was worried because one of the…

13/56 Keeping my beautiful cool demeanour

I remember when I got my first job in Dublin, and I didn’t like it at all. On the first day, I left the office in tears, feeling depressed and in a totally uncomfortable zone. Then I got into the working routine. I still didn’t like it, but things had turned quite decent. Once, at…

10/56 Crafted my day

After yesterday’s┬ástory, today I woke up with the snow. It was my fault again. In the afternoon, I saw the best house I have seen so far since the begininning of the hunting. Since it was so nice, there were too many people to see it. I even tried to convince the owner with a…

7/56 A wrong day

Number 7 was once supposed to be a lucky one. Not today. Not for me. At work, I had to attend the longest workshop ever, and late morning I started having some belly cramps. After work, I went to see 2 houses. The first one was one of many apartments lined on more floors with…

6/56 Oops, I forgot myself

Yesterday, on my most lazy day, I realized that for just a few days I had forgotten about my good habits, and my body and mind where reminding me of that. I felt confused of course, without any energy, feeling fatter already, my back was starting to ache again, my stomach got cramps, and had…

5/56 Crashed on a sunny day

Today I had so many different little moments with many different big feelings. I cleaned the house, and fell suddenly so much better. And it was a full sunny day! Not a shower! You already know I’m not particularly hungry for the sun, but obviously the cats were. They had a lot of meetings in…

4/56 Being philosophical about it

Today I just took my time to relax and mainly slept all day. In my waking hours, I had some crazy thinking of course, now that all the possibilities are opened to me, and have to ponder all of them. I thought again about what a couple of people told me 4 days ago, upon…

3/56 Dream vs Reality

Yesterday I saw a house for sale in an area of the city that I love, close to the sea and the woods. As soon as I arrived I saw a cat on the neighbour’s window, and thought it was a good omen. The house was nice, very small, in my price range, with a…

2/56 The eviction letter

At the end of last year, I decided to become openly aware of how beautiful 2017 had been. I warned myself that t’s always dangerous to say it out loud. I also repeated myself that I wouldn’t let a stupid invisible fear lessen what I was feeling, and that I would have faced the next…
