It’s Been a While…

Well needless to say I’ve missed this. So much so that during my free time you may be seeing a lot of postings come through. As if I have so much to say and not enough time to say it in.

Since we’ve last chatted:

– Today is the first show I’ve worked since May. While it’s nice to be back in the mix it’s a bit frustrating not knowing what is expected of me. I’m a firm believer that in order to exceed expectations you need to first know what is expected from you. The original position I was hired for (which I was excited for) has now changed to a condensed version of what my usual job is. I look at each show as a learning opportunity and I’m hoping that this one will be no different. There is a lot to be said for keeping an open mind and always being willing to learn no matter how many times you’ve done something.

Coincidentally I am working with my old boss who has since the last time we worked              together iced me out after I found out some less than appealing things he did to me at our last show together. But, enough about that. I believe by taking the higher road in the end I will come out on top, and if not than it wasn’t meant to be but my work ethic speaks for itself and something better will come along.

((Update))

Within the time I’ve been writing this he has now leaned on me twice, which speaks loudly instead of doing it himself he approached me for help. Houston: We are making progress.

– My carpal tunnel has continued to worsen and my appointment tomorrow cannot come fast enough. Hopefully, it will bring further insight and resolutions as well.

– I’ve been able to spend an immense amount of time with my family, which I love! Especially with my little sister helping her learn how to read. and working on her phonics.

– I’ve purchased an almost new Ford Fusion SE in cash (which I saved for 5 years to get).

– I’ve fallen in love with a new budget app called Every Dollar. I’ve earned silly amounts of money from the Ibotta AppReceipt Hog and Poshmark. They are all great ways to earn extra money without much effort.

– I’ve been able to FaceTime my BFF, Isabel, quite a bit which is a huge treat.

So that’s what’s new with me. I hope these last few weeks have treated you well and that happiness has been busting down your doorway.

Big Decisions…

First, a little sentiment from this morning… 

 

i just want to get this off my chest. I’ve decided to make some big decisions in my life.

May: 

  1. Quit subbing at the school I’m currently with and swap to festival work until fall.
  2. Move into the home my brother owns, rent from him and try to fix it up along the way so he can sell it at the end of the year for a profit.

June & July: 

  1. Have first carpal tunnel surgery don’t in June. Once I’m healed have the second done in July. 
  2. Get my certifications to sub in Altamonte Springs so I can keep saving all of my festival money. 

And somewhere in between buy a “new to me” car. I’ve forfeited my dream of having a Volvo C70 and going for a Ford Fusion maybe Hyundai Sonata. While I’m sad to see my pretty Volvo go away I’m excited to be buying my second car in cash and avoiding having a payment. 

Don’t you ever wish you didn’t have to make adult choices? Sometimes I just want to hide out in a blanket fort and marathon Harry Potter.
