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…

12/56 From house to home, and back

When you decide to change your lifestyle, then you achieve that goal, and get used to it, it’s not easy to go back to what was before. This is what is happening to me. I got used to live on my own, to have my spaces, to do things at my rythm, to listen only…

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…
