interior adventures is a series all about my adventures (& misadventures) in re-doing and re-decorating my flat.
Breaking up 101: Find things to do that occupy your time. This is best done with other people. So hang the shit out with your friends and keep yourself busy. Because it’s the moments that you are alone that are the hardest. However, if you DO find yourself alone, give yourself a new project to occupy your time and trick your mind into thinking it’s busy with some super important (but actually really not) task like re-decorating your flat.
If you couldn’t properly surmise from that first sentence, I am currently in throes of a break up. (Which explains why LFB’s activity took a bit of a hit last week) Now, I’m sure a lot of you are scratching your heads going, “Wait. But didn’t they JUST get back together…?” Yes, yes we did. But unfortunately it wasn’t working out like either of us had hoped. We both still really love each other, but know that this is what is best – at least for now. At this point in time, I can confidently say that I really sincerely hope there is still more to this story to be told, but for now, I’m just trying to go through the breakup process like any average 20-something year old would, alternating between osmosifying with my couch and spending some much needed and amazing time with people I am so lucky to call my friends, eating and smoking my feelings (yes, I’m giving myself a free pass for a few weeks), and embarking on a new project that I hope will occupy a substantial amount of brain space for now.
I’ve been quite dissatisfied with my living room and entrance way for quite some time now, so I will be overhauling everything over the next several weeks-months. I’m stretching my interlaced fingers, both metaphorically and literally, and getting the fuck down to business. I’ve already thinned my pockets out quite a bit by purchasing the stunning piece of botanical wall art that you can see in the top of this collage, but re-absorbed much of it by selling an old wardrobe online. I decided that it might be a bit of a fun adventure to catalogue this adventure here on LFB, so stay tuned for more posts as I deal with my emotions through retail therapy and design.
