Long time, no write.
My life hasn’t been extremely eventful in the time I missed. Currently, I am in the process of getting a new job, starting my last semester before my bachelor’s degree, and looking into master’s programs.
In my time away from my blog, I continued reading. I have now read 10 books so far this year, I am currently struggling with reading every day. I have about 5 books waiting to be read on my shelf. Hopefully, I will get the urge to read again and get all caught up with my TBR (To Be Read) Bookshelf.
Another thing I continued doing, or started, unsure if I’ve mentioned it before – is journaling. I signed up for prompts to get sent to me 3 days a week through text message. I’ve also been slacking at continuously doing these prompts, but I’m doing my best to catch back up.
On a not so positive note, I started smoking again. It’s a bad habit that I don’t seem to have an issue with quitting if I have a good reason (such as being pregnant), but it keeps coming back to me. I’m trying to end my breastfeeding journey and starting smoking again has pushed me this decision as well.
Back to a positive, always end with a positive, I have been planning my daughter’s first birthday party! The theme I chose is “Sweet One,” the invites I sent out had the saying, “Donut Grow Up!” on them! I think its adorable an suits her well… along with my feelings on her turning one already (tears).
I had two job interviews, got offered one job, and am waiting to hear back from the other. The better paying and benefits job is the one I haven’t heard back from yet (darn it)! But, I needed a new job because I turned 26 this month and am getting kicked off my mother’s insurance (life changing event (sad face) time to grow up some more, I suppose). The job I had didn’t offer insurance and when I looked into buying it didn’t seem like it was a very good deal. Anyways, I think it’s time for me to get out of the house and time to get my baby used to not being with momma every day.
TWO MORE CLASSES! Finally, this seems like it took forever… probably because it took twice as long as it should have (all my fault, lol). My bachelor’s degree.. I am only two classes away. It doesn’t seem like a huge accomplishment, not to me at least. Maybe because I know in order to make anything decent I will need to have a Master’s degree. But, small steps. Set a good example for my kid, we can do anything we set our minds to.
I am not looking forward to continuing school. But, if I take time off I am afraid I will not continue later. So, I better jump in head first to get the ball rolling. I haven’t spent much time researching and looking into places to attend (online of course) but I will have some time to do this later I do believe.
Maybe I’ll give a life update next month (if I remember and feel like writing).
