Here’s all the stuff that we posted this week.

Our Lives This Week

In Asti’s Life…

Okay, so no lies about unicorns or anything like that this week. I promise to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. ;)

Things have been pretty routine for me over here. I eat, I go to the gym, and I do my best to battle the constant depression that threatens to overwhelm me every other minute. And, apart from that depression thing, everything’sĀ been going fairly well. I’ve lost 10 lbs from my three weeks of dieting so far, I managed to run twenty out of the thirty minutes I was on the treadmill yesterday, and I have this project I’m going to be working on soon that I’m pretty excited about. (Unfortunately, the project is a secret so I can’t say what it is.)

It’s also officially been one month since Dave left, which sucks in so many ways, but things seem to be going well for him. Just this past week he found out he is getting hired as a trainee in the job he was really hoping to get, and he’s actually gone out and bought a car. I’m happy for him, of course, but I told him there seems to be something completely wrong with this picture: when we first met I was the one working with a car while he was a bum, and now somehow he’s the one working with the car while I’m jobless and transportless. What the hell? (Oh and in case you’re wondering. This job, which is probably the best job he could get with his limited experience, is still way below the salary needed for us to be together. I have no idea if we’ll ever be together, or when, which does nothing for my depression.)

So yeah, it’s been a week. I’m happy for Dave and things aren’t completely failing for me here in the States, but I’m still definitely struggling. I guess that’s just life for you though, huh?

In Kelley’s Life…

In general, my life has been full of three things lately: work, books, and CAT.

I don’t have much to report, really, except that I’ve been doing a LOT of reading, which has been awesome. I also went to the dentist this week and I got to see the inside of my tooth because they got this fancy new camera, and it was really cool! (Oh my god, I am the most boring person ever.)

  1. I wish i could come up there and hug you Asti (Virtual hugs for youuu) I hate it when people are sad and depressed, I just hope you feel better soon or in your own time.

    My week? Hmmm, I stayed home and did some painting for school but last saturday, I went to a release event with a local street team. it was awesome! :D

  2. Asti, I need to be there next to you right now to give you the biggest hug in the whole entire world. Seriously. And bake you some gluten free cookies (even though I don’t do baking and mess but I’ll make an exception.) Keep rocking on. I’m always here for you. BIG BIG HUGS.

    Kelley–cat and books. That is a good life.

    Eat jelly, don’t make rash hair decisions (lol that’s coming from the person who just hacked 30cms off her hair oh goodness) and have fun, always!

  3. Asti I wish I could go over there and give you a hug! <3 <3 And Kelley. CATS!

    Glad to see you guys are keeping up on all the links. I feel like it gets longer and longer each week! I will go through them later :)

    • Thanks Nereyda! I get what you mean about rather working out at home than going to the gym. I guess I sort of like the treadmill at the gym just because I don’t seem to get as bored as there’s so many options to keep my mind (TV, music, people watching), but meh, if it were completely my choice I’d still stay home. My mom just wanted to sign up for a gym when I came back to the States so I ended up being her gym buddy. At least it’s more motivation for me to keep with it when someone is holding me accountable!

  4. So many links but so many great posts – literally just sat for an hour going through them! Haha! Thanks for sharing my post.

    I know there isn’t an instant ‘pick me up’ for you Asti, but I hope things all work out for you soon. It’s tough being in such a situation, I’ve been there, but it does seem like you’re trying to make the most of it. Good things come to those who wait….
