I decided to do a few things this year that would bring a little more cheer to my life here at grad school. They are small steps that are already improving my mood greatly (except for that other night. But let’s not talk about that).
Part I: A Roommate
Duke is my 7 year old tabby cat who has been with me ever since his mom decided our house would be a great place to have her litter. Shortly after Duke and his siblings were born, Duke’s mom ran away and didn’t come back. At the time, I was working at the local veterinary clinic. Thank goodness. We were supplied with plenty of kitten formula, and lacked a couple hours of sleep for a few weeks. Of course, they were adorable little kittens, so we were okay with it.
I am really glad that Duke is here with me because he likes to curl up next to my feet when I’m sleeping and he provides me with plenty of giggles during the day.
Part II: Brighten up
My apartment is fabulous, because we are allowed to paint the walls. Twenty bucks for a gallon of paint and supplies meant that my options were endless.
I found the perfect shade of happy sky blue, called “Isle of Capri” by Behr. It was super easy to apply and didn’t give me a terrible headache while I was painting. Fabulous.
After painting one wall, I decided I needed a few more bursts of color throughout the apartment.
Part III: Coming soon…
I can’t wait to show you my next step in this project!
What’d you do this weekend?
