I think I've been watching too much American Horror Story. Today I moved into a new apartment in a big city. This is my first move where i've actually leased an apartment by myself and had to furnish it completely. My boyfriend will hopefully be joining me in a few weeks once he gets a job out here. I found this awesome used furniture store downtown that had great reviews on yelp and I bought a lot of stuff from them. Three of the men there (pretty sure they are the only employees) moved it in for me, so I obviously gave them my address.

I'm scared one of them, who chatted with me at first about how he just moved here and was kind of awkward (but not super creepy or anything), is going to come back to my house and murder me. He knows where I live and sleep. I am staying with my friend for a few days until everything gets set up there, but I kind of just want to sleep on her futon until my boyfriend shows up because I'm so paranoid.

Have any of you felt like this? what do you do to stop these irrational thoughts? I am thinking of sleeping with a bat and buying a home security system. Late night thoughts/serial killer tv shows/my anxiety are keeping me awake.

Can anyone relate?

showers of joy

A comment to a previous post leads me to this question: do you have a showering schedule? Like the same time every day, or what?

How much time do you typically spend in the shower?

Do you employ the cold shower technique to wake yourself up, cool your...jets...or anything else?

My fiance and I are getting married June 26, 2015.  Just over 9 months from now, wow!  We originally had this fantastic plan to go to Europe for our honeymoon, but that doesn't seem financially realistic anymore.

What are some fun/romantic ideas for a honeymoon inside the U.S.?

Will you tell me about what your bedrooms have looked like throughout your life?  Colors, decorations, etc. Be as detailed as you want ,from your bedroom now all the way back to when you were a baby.
