I don’t know where to start. That’s a great first sentence for a post. lol. Not a lot of big things are happening. I just want to do a few updates.
Job(s) update: FT job is still stressful, but today was pretty good. Re: the part-time job – We don’t have as much work because companies are sending their work overseas. 😦 I knew this was happening, but I didn’t know it was affecting the company I work for that badly.
Anyway, I should have work in about 2 weeks. People with more experience are working now. Us newbies have to wait. There are still opportunities and I’m glad I’m working with this company. However, I don’t think I’m going to invest in this career further. I was considering getting a THIRD certification. That’s a couple of thousands of dollars I would have to invest.
A course is starting next week with a discount for a few days in the certification I want, and of course, I’m tempted to sign up. But ugh, I just finished studying and taking a certification exam. Do I REALLY want to spend time and money on another certification right now? I think I will pass on the discounted price and wait until I really know I will receive a return on my investment.
Depo-Provera update: UGH. The bleeding started back on Wednesday. Great. I hope it is only temporary or I might call the doctor. It’s not really heavy, so that’s a good thing. I think I might be at the beginning of gaining weight due to the Depo. I won’t know for sure until a few weeks. Many women start gaining after the 3rd shot, so no shock there.
Other than that, things are going great with the Depo. 😉 More on this later.
List time! I love lists. Obvs. I made a list of things I really want. I think it’s accurate. I came up with this list in my paper journal pretty quickly so I might have left a few things off. I left two private things off the following list. These wants are in no particular order:
- A private island in a warm climate.
- No debt.
- A good relationship with food.
- A carefree job where I feel confident.
- A consistent spiritual practice.
- To be all around healthy.
- To forgive my past tormentors.
I have nothing to add right now. Just sharing.
This week I…
Music of the week: Jillette Johnson, Lorde, Taylor Swift, Kelly Clarkson, Julia Michaels, Ariana Grande, John Mayer, Lana Del Rey
Song of the week: Lorde – Perfect Places
TV of the week: Big Brother, Pretty Little Liars
I’m so glad PLL is finally over. It got so bad at the end. Horrible. I quit watching Empire during the second season. I just don’t care what happens to these millionaires. And the music was horrible. Music is subjective, so I’ll just say I didn’t like the music. I hate saying that because Timbaland is the executive music producer. But whatever. I started watching Empire because so many people were talking about it and I’m a fan of Gabourey Sidibe. But she wasn’t on the show enough for me. I should probably read Gabby’s book. I don’t know much about it. I just heard it was good.
Movie of the week: None
Books of the week:
I’m trying to focus on the following books –
- The Anti-Anxiety Food Solution: How The Foods You Eat Can Help Calm Your Anxious Mind, Improve Your Mood, and End Cravings by Trudy Scott
- The Gift of Change: Spiritual Guidance for Living Your Best Life by Marianne Williamson
- The Fact of a Body: A Murder and a Memoir by Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich. (Page turner!)
Planner update: Plans of the week in my Erin Condren
Plans for the Weekend: Why do I even have this section? It’s not like I do anything fun on most weekends. LOL. Anyway, I’m just going grocery shopping and enjoying my free time. I am preparing to work at my part time job. It’s kind of hard to prepare without work, but I have some old coursework I can do. I’m trying to get really good at it so I can always have work despite a lot of work being moved overseas.
Thanks for reading! Have a wonderful weekend. 🙂
