Katrell Gears Up for the Next Chapter of Her Life
To put it plainly, AJ and I have been become very close. We have a lot of things in common, our personalities are very similar, and Valincia is threatened by that. She needs to see that it's not like I would want AJ to help me before helping her. But she thinks any attention he gives to me is taking from her. Either way, I'm not very concerned about her, I just think she's a piece of work. She needs to get over herself and seek therapy. I'm mainly just grateful for all the help AJ has given me.
Moving out of the apartment I shared with Tony was difficult because we've been there for three years. It was a comfort zone, a safe haven for me, and I wasn't ready to start over. I was also running some of my business out of that apartment and invested time and money into decorating the place. I had a custom-made vanity built in and a lot of additions I didn't want to take down. That apartment was my home and my business. I felt Tony should be the one to leave, not me.
I love everything about my new place. I love the view of the lake. I love being able to see people down on Michigan Avenue. I love just being in the heart of things. The apartment is elegant, chic, it's me. It was a significant upgrade and signified a new chapter in my life.
Even though I am not a very "green" person, I thought making the salon more environmentally friendly was a good move. I didn't mind it. Whatever is good for the salon is good for me. I may end up transferring some of the green habits we're picking up in the salon to my home life as well.
