Hitting the Books

Hello everyone! Hope 2021 is treating you right so far! It’s been an interesting start to the year, but I think we’re going to be better off than we were in 2020. The past few weeks for me have been packed full of planning and scheduling but I’m finally at a point where I can slow down… or am I?

As of today, I am once again a student. I enrolled and started classes this morning, and I couldn’t be happier! I am enrolled in paralegal studies and I am 8% through my first semester’s course load (according to my student dashboard). I forgot just how much I enjoyed learning and being a student, and it’s great to be back!

With that being said, I’m sure you’re all wondering what’s going to change. To put it simply, nothing. Rooplixoo will continue to thrive and I made sure that I have time for everything! The only thing that I’m struggling with right now is that my hands are killing me from taking notes all day and I’m hungry.

We have a busy week coming up as far as streaming is concerned. I will be streaming 1/12 at 3PM, 1/14 at 3PM and 1/16 at 10PM on twitch! Tuesday’s stream will be an anything stream, Thursday’s stream will be dedicated to going through my steam library, and Saturday’s stream will be the first of my Stardew Valley Completionist Playthrough!

I don’t have much else to report, so I will end it here! I love you all and hope you have a wonderful Monday!

Haven’t I Learned?

There are many things that I’ve learned over the years. From looking both way before crossing the street, to chewing with my mouth closed. I’ve gotten this far, haven’t I? I should have full control of my life and my feelings…

Oh wait, this isn’t a perfect world and I’m a walking, talking mess. I have control over very little, including myself. My feelings run rapid like a dog let off its leash. I have recently broken one of the golden rules when you become a working adult: don’t start liking one of your coworkers.

You can’t help who you fall for, hell knows I’m the poster child for that, but I tried so hard not to like anyone at my job because I was under the assumption that I wasn’t ready and that I could turn my feelings on and off like a light (this is where I went wrong… and I guess right). When you stop trying or looking for something, whatever it is will break down your door and climb right into your lap.

I have been a basket case lately due to work stress, and the added pressure of a middle school crush isn’t helping. I mean, it makes me happy because I am capable of feeling again after a terrible breakup, but it scares.

Do I know if he likes me back, or would even consider me? No, I honestly have no idea. Do I try and crush my feelings every chance that I get? I sure do, but it doesn’t work. All my friends say I should go for it, because life is too short and taking chances are apart of the experience, but I honestly have no idea how to go about it.

A Bad Morning

I had an extremely rough night that carried over into my morning. My mind is swimming, and I can’t really think about anything creative and fun. I will take the day to calm down and get my thoughts in order so I can come back strong in my next post.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday!
