Holy shit Batman - lots has happened the past week. And the next few weeks are going to be fucking insane!

And I'm super excited!!

So..... I mentioned that I have a cat. Cooper. My hairy baby. I didn't mention that I'm not allowed to have cats where I live now. Even though the landlord usually looked the other way and pretended that he didn't see Cooper in the window, I knew there was the risk that someone would get pissy. Well, that time came. I got caught in the middle of a personal feud between two other tenants and a very long story short - I got a letter saying "Get rid of your cat in 10 days."

It took me 30 seconds to decide what I needed to do.

Goodbye my apartment after 8 years and on to the next chapter.

This was last Thursday, exactly one week ago. I was able to put in my moving notice before the first, which means I'm out latest Oct. 15. I sat on my couch Thursday evening, totally freaking out. Where the hell am I going to live? But everytime I started to despair, Cooper crawled up to me and with the risk of sounding totally cheesy, I knew that this was the right thing to do.

Cooper is a part of my family.

But now it all starts to snowball. I don't really believe in fate or stuff like that but.... I've been crazy lucky. Thursday night, I'm freaking out. Friday - I'm checking out a new place. It's a fucking dream apartment. Saturday - I get a buddy to check it out with me because it is seriously too good to be true. Sunday - my buddy and I decide to move in together in our dream home. Tuesday - we meet with the owners. Wednesday - I got the contract. Next week - I'm moving.

Holy shit!

The apartment is huge. And cheap. We will both get a home twice the size of what we're used to. We will both save money. It has a dishwasher, washing machine, balcony. Two living room areas. Dining room area. Two toilets. A good sized shower. 3 bedrooms. Sun all day. A garden. Busstop just outside my door. My friend lives next door. Cooper has a huge area to be in and two friends keeping him company if I'm not around for a few days.

And if it really sucks living with my buddy - I can afford to live there on my own if he moves out.

And to top everything off - I'm going to Amsterdam Sept. 1.

I've been thinking about my blog for a few days now and here I am.

Was considering starting over but then again, I felt like I was throwing away several years of "memories" out the window. So I decided to keep it and just keep working away - who knows what will happen. Who knows if anyone actually reads thing. I could "advertise" my blog on my facebook but that would be wierd, no?

Lots has happened the past few years. I graduated and now have my degree as a "p├Ždagog". I'm still bartending every weekend. I still live in Vejle. Lots of still doing.... not a bad thing but not much has changed.

I went to Burning Man last year. Loved it!

Totally want to go again. It was amazing but I think the second time will be even more amazing. The first time was mind-boggling because I had no idea what to expect. And the fact that I only got a ticket 2 days before I had to leave left me slightly unprepared. Next time, I will have an idea of what to expect, of what to pack and my goals for myself. I hope to go with my parents which will mean I can relax a bit more and just let go. I had a hard time just letting go the first time - not because of my campmates - they were fucking awesome. They opened their arms to a complete stranger and let me do whatever I wanted or needed to do. I just couldn't relax and let me..... just be me. Well, I guess I did in some sense. It's hard to explain. 

Other than Burning Man, I spent my late summer with my parents over in Canada. That was also amazing. Just hanging out with them and relaxing. Seeing my friends again and just.... being at home. It's still a home. Scary thought. I don't think that home feeling will ever go away. 

I got back to DK in September 2015 and a couple of weeks after, I got a cat. One would think that getting a cat isn't life changing or anything. Cooper changed my life. Yes, I'm the crazy cat lady. 

Enough of my rambling today. I should get my shit together and enjoy my vacation. Only 2 weeks left....
