LIFE UPDATE | I'm Moving

My life has been so unsettled this year. For me, change is like a big black looming cloud of unknowing. I hate not feeling in control of my surroundings and having a disrupted routine. It got to the point where I had to put things to the side, put my usual activities on pause and just try and push through.

My boyfriend has just bought us our first ever apartment and the whole process has been beyond stressful. I've learnt so much over the last month or so about home loans, bank processes, conveyancers, brokers, mortgage insurers and the dodgy ways real estates try and rope you into buying. They definitely took us around in circles but it has somehow worked out in the end. 

I've been out of home renting different apartments for 6 or 7 years now and if I've had to move I've always been so organised in quickly locking down a new place to go. With a couple of weeks til having to move out of my current place though and not knowing the fate of actually buying this new place I haven't been able to be organised, and I've never been so stressed. It's actually affected my health in all sorts of ways. Crazy what stress can do to you.

I'm really looking forward to settling down into our new place. Getting my life, work, mind and health back on track and starting over in a new city. I can't wait to say cya later to Sydney... growing up in the country I've always been such a laid back person so to live in this particular city where everyone is ALWAYS in a rush (to the point where I feel like I'm in a rush too, even if I don't need to be) is just not my type of place to be.

I decided not to create a new Youtube video til I'm in the new place as this apartment has been all packed up for a few weeks now. I'm thinking I might give vlogging a go, and I should be able to start doing all those apartment tour / decor / morning and evening routine videos so make sure you're subscribed to my channel :)

Myself, my boyfriend and all our belongings are off to the central coast this weekend. Exciting stuff!

  1. Congratulations on the new apartment! I absolutely love the central coast. Being from Perth, every time I'm in Sydney I feel so relaxed and laid back compared to everyone else (haha!), though I definitely vibe off the city.

    My partner and I have been buying land and building a new house for the last year or so, but it's really starting to come together now. While it has been stressful, it will so be worth it in the end. I'm not looking forward to the whole moving process though!

    PS. Bring on the flogging! Cannot wait to see what you come up with!

    1. Thanks Kiara :) That's so exciting about your new house and being able to design every bit of the way. That's our next goal... buying an actual house. Step by step! The process of moving has just hit me today, kinda freaking out now. My stuff is everywhere haha.
