    so... I'm getting divorced

    Nothing angry or dramatic, about as amicable as it could get but it's happening. Basically we've been more roommates than spouses for years and after a couple failed attempts to change that and a whole lot of ignoring the problem because honestly we're pretty good roommates and it was convenient, we finally admitted that it isn't going to work and that we'd both be better off moving on.

    Originally we were even going to take our time separating and continue to live as roommates for a while, but the housing market here is absolutely bonkers at the moment and we'd basically be throwing away money that we could both really use for a fresh start by not selling the house right now. So, I have an apartment lined up for the end of the month, my ex has a friend that she's going to move in with for a bit while she looks for her own place, and once we and the dogs are out of here we're going to clean it up an put it on the market.

    I was pretty freaked out by this at first. Change can be scary, and this is about as big a change as I've ever had to deal with. It didn't help that we reached the decision in the middle of the pandemic while I was working from home and thoroughly socially distancing. For a little while I was holding out hope that if we got along better as roommates we might have second thoughts after a few months, so I didn't want to say anything to my friends in case we ended up changing our minds. So I just kind of kept all the anxiety and stress bottled up in my own head for a month or two which was super healthy.

    I'm doing a lot better now - at some point I realized that I really don't want us to change our minds, that we really will be happier in the long run this way. Part of it was in seeing the plans we were both making - she wants a little house in the country, with no neighbours within a stone's throw, while I'm getting increasingly excited at the idea of living in an apartment downtown, within walking distance of everything. What will make us each happy are very different things, and our current living situation was a compromise that gave neither of us what we really want.

    We're still friends though, and there's nothing we're fighting over. We had to have a bit of a discussion about what to do with the dogs (I'm especially attached to one of them and want her to live with me if possible, but my ex needed reassurance that if she was unhappy or unable to adjust to living in an apartment I'd let her go live with her, which I agreed to.)

    So... yeah. Once we made the decision to sell rather than wait things started moving very fast, I could be moving into my new apartment as early as a week and a half from now. But I'm at least not scared anymore. When I was talking to a friend I put it this way:

    " I do think it'll be good in the long run

    <Ex> will get to have her little house in the country with no asshole neighbours right on top of her

    and I'll... I'll get to figure out what I want? I really don't know what that looks like"

    and that's still where I am now. I don't really know what I want the next phase of my life to be, but at this point I'm excited to find out.

    in happier news, the location of my new apartment is dope as fuuuuuuck

    within 10 minute walking distance I have a huge farmer's market, two grocery stores, a pharmacy, two liquor stores, a massive asian grocery, a board game cafe, the city's brand new central library, and roughly a billion cool restaurants and cafes, and two museums, one of which is an interactive science museum.

    Bummed to hear things didn't work out with y'all, but I'm glad it's been amicable and you can still be friends!

    Also important note that that museum does have drinking nights as evidenced by the time I got very drunk there two years ago on Halloween

    if you noticed that half the things I'm excited about are grocery stores/markets, I will absolutely be eager to hold dinner parties. One downside of living alone will be less opportunity to cook for others.
