I'm a happy weird girl... musical theatre nerd... In love with a Russian boy named Kirill... (relax... he's been in New Zealand since 1996 lol)
Obsessed with True crime, British comedy and RuPaul's Drag Race
All about the fur baby life... have had cats in the past... looking to get one again when Kirill and I move in together, and possibly some little baby ratties and hopefully if the budget allows a wee doggo...
2 part time jobs that can get a bit nutso (boy do I need a holiday...)
I'm fat and I love cheese... I think those are all the important details... if you need to know anything else ask away! (Except if you're gonna be rude and gross lols)
Songbird_nz: Things are getting super real now. Kirill has listed me as his "next of kin" when he signed up for the doctor and the dentist. I'm also his emergency contact as well... does that usually mean good things?
He's also having (finally!) his wisdom tooth extraction today. So I'm having a half day at work, leaving here at lunch time to meet him there, so I can make sure he gets home safely.
He wasn't too chuffed about having to fast for 6 hours before hand though... So I told him that if he didn't he'd poop his pants when he goes under Is this a true thing? I think it's a true thing...
Songbird_nz: Life Update:
Literally as soon as I got chucked out of my flat, I found me a new one! Moved in last Tuesday and it is fantastic! It's in a wee suburb called Aro Valley and... well... it's a little bit foresty... lols. I have seen too many spiders in a week and my flatmates have already invited me to go hunting for shrooms! (lol!!!!! )
Had our jazz gig on Saturday night as well, so it's been a crazy busy week! My only real rest day last week was Thursday, coz if I wasn't moving I was at work or rehearsal or on stage at a gig. But yea, our jazz gig performing the music of Mary Poppins went down a treat! Our audience was tiny, but perfectly formed. I was (essentially) Mary Poppins for the whole night so I had a lot of strangers throw their arms around me lol.
Oh and Kirill is amazing too... I love him so much, he bought a Korg workstation and him and I have been singing and playing a lot. We've also discovered a Podcast where Dan Harmon plays Dungeons and Dragons in front of a live audience! So... that's a bit of fun!
Songbird_nz: Silly reasons... I'm not home enough... and when I am home apparently all I do is make a mess. Which is not true, coz all I've been doing when I've been home for the past three months is sleeping and showering. So I fail to understand how that's messy? If I do leave a mess in the bathroom I clean it up straight away, and what I do in my own personal space is my business, so if they are going into my room then that's a breach of my privacy. I haven't used the kitchen AT ALL in the past three months... despite the fact that there are many MANY dishes stuck all over the place, none of which are mine. So... yea... silly reasons.
Songbird_nz: Ok guys... just one small gripe I need to address here and yes I need to do it on here as all the offending culprits are on here.
Can we please just stop asking if me and my boyfriend have had sex??? If I must do a public answer to this question... then it's no, it's not really our thing we aren't fueled by sexual activities, and there are many other ways in which we can make each other feel satisfied and fulfilled without the need for sex acts. If we do decide to change our minds then I'd quite like to say that it is no one else's business except mine and his, so please just for my sanity STOP BLOODY ASKING!!
I feel it is very intrusive and rude. Yes, for sure you can ask me how he is and all those other things, but stop trying to pry into our sex lives (or lack thereof)
Here endeth the annoyed grouchy PSA
Songbird_nz: Just when you thought you were going to have a good day at work... problem after problem after problem surfaced... All of these problems initially occurred on days when I'm not even here in the first place... so can we please explain why I'm getting the blame and why it's now becoming my problem and I have to fix?
Confused... frustrated... annoyed...
Wish I could leave secret reviews of my boss lols
Songbird_nz: What a crazy busy world I live in...
Both my jobs are having some staffing issues... Bendon just needs to hire more staff... and All About Health & Wellness needs to be slightly less lenient in letting the other receptionist take so much annual leave... Last week I worked 6 days in a row... next week I'm working 6 days in a row... Been thinking about taking some annual leave myself... but at this stage that's probably not gonna happen for another month at least. Oh well... more muns for me I guess hehe...
Oh and speaking of annual leave... Kirill says he'd like to join me when I go on my trip to visit my Mum and get to know her properly... we have had a couple of calls over FaceTime so they have been introduced... just not in person just yet but Mum said she'd love to have him visit with me as well so that's a plus!
Songbird_nz: So... been a while...
I'm like never at home anymore these days so that's basically why I'm never on anymore.
Things with Kirill are going incredibly well! His lease is up in November and he has floated the idea of us moving in together then! So that's a super exciting thing! He says he couldn't think of anything more awesome than living with me (I don't know why... I can barely stand to live with me lols) So that's an exciting thing to look forward too. We do a lot of stuff together so I think in the end it just makes a lot of sense.
So... how have things been with you? Let me know what you've been up too and all that jazz!
Songbird_nz: Basically one month in... still going strong!! In fact... we're starting to record our own covers of songs. Thus far we've done "A Thousand Miles" by Vanessa Carlton and "La La Land" by Demi Lovato. Next on the list is definitely something by Paramore, although we can't decide between "Misery Business" "Decode" and "Ignorance". Oh and he also wants me to do a cover of this Got A Girl song... it's a duet with Mike Patton and he's a HUUUUUGE Mike Patton fan... so he's gonna do the weird Mike Patton parts hehe.

Songbird_nz: Monday job has become a complete nightmare. Step Mother/Boss is claiming I don't tell her important things... despite the fact that I always inform her of EVERYTHING... she just doesn't listen to me. Maybe I should stop telling her things as an experiment just to see what happens LOL!
The boyfriend met the bulk of my family on Saturday night for my younger brothers birthday dinner. He says everyone was super awesome and chill... except for one person and yep... you guessed it... MY STEP MOTHER... well in his defence she introduced herself as "Kat's evil step mother" and then proceeded to act super weird (and actually super drunk) all evening.
He is a massive help through all of this though... he now completely understands all the issues I have and sees where I'm coming from... he feels awful that I have to go through it all though, so he's going to do his best to protect me through everything which is super wonderful He really is doing an amazing job of keeping me sane I love him.
My amazingly wonderful boyfriend decided to refer me to his work... coz primarily he thinks I'm kinda the perfect fit for the role that he's doing. It's a remote work from home tech support/customer service scenario... but he seems to think I'd be super good at it, even tho I'm not super duper tech savvy. He says there's a super extensive training period... but failing that, you don't need to be super smart to Google things.
So last Monday we put through my referral and application and on Thursday I got invited to stage one of the interview. I have been scheduled to have my "life story" interview this coming Wednesday at 12noon for a grand total of 45 mins (phew! that's a long time to talk about myself lol)
I'm equal parts terrified, anxious, thankful and feeling the love all at the same time!
I'm a week in. Every time I see him I feel more and more that this is the right person. He's also feeling exactly the same way and he's told me on numerous occasions over the past week that he's all in... 100%... nothing could make him want to end things with me. I'm just so excited about what is to come next, but I'm also missing him so much when both of us have to be at work.
It's so unbelievably hard not being next to him right now.
Songbird_nz: As most of you are very well aware... I do not date... nor do I actively seek out people for relationships, so this may come as a shock to some/most/all of you...
I went to a musicians jam night on Saturday night after work... and well... accidentally left with a boyfriend...
He's essentially me the male version and I'm essentially him the female version... This is the weirdest thing ever... but it also feel like the most correct choice I've ever made in all my life...
His name is Kirill and he's 29... I'll post some pics when I get the chance.
OMG I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT THIS IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING!!
Songbird_nz: On the train to work this morning I got very jealous of this guy who appeared to be eating leftovers of a Roast Chicken dinner... I couldn't stop staring at it! Haha...
Sorry dude, I wasn't flirting with you... I was flirting with your lunch!

Songbird_nz: Situation normal at the doctors... My body might be in perfect working condition... just need to get my mind to co operate now
So now I'm public enemy number one because Step Monster rang me while I was on the train and going through tunnels we went out of service range and subsequently the call dropped... no one's fault happens all the time.
As soon as I get to the office "Why did you hang up on me? That was very rude!"
"I didn't hang up on you! Sorry! We were going through the tunnels and there's no service through the tunnels, that's all"
"Well that's very inconvenient! What if it was something urgent?"
"Look, it's no biggie... just going through tunnels means no service, that's all... nobodies fault it happens all the time"
"Stop making excuses, and have your phone on you at all times!"
"Well... it was on me... otherwise I wouldn't have been able to answer..."
"I'm not going to stand for any rudeness"
"I'm sorry but how is no cell service coverage rude?"
"... there's messages waiting..."
