Well, well, look what we have here – your daughter finally taking the time to reconnect. I figure the timing is appropriate given what day it is, and there are so many things that I’ve been meaning to tell you.
… but I guess we’ll just start with the only major two things.
If anyone knows me, they would know one HUGE fact about me: I’m a 25 year old adult that still doesn’t know how to drive.
Sad, isn’t it?
Well, while I’m doing nothing until my other job starts up (update about that soon to follow), I decided to take advantage of my time and get at least one goal for the year completed.
Well it certainly has been such a long time! Since my last post in March, everything has happened so suddenly that I really had no time to play catch up on here. But here I am now, two months later. There is so much to fill you in that this will be one mass post of everything that has happened in April. Stay tuned…
Hey you, it’s been such a long time. I hope you’re doing well as a spirit wandering through cyberspace. I just want to tell you a story about what I did recently, as you know I would always do.
Happy New Year, everyone. I can’t believe that it’s already 2017!
(Um, Lexi, it’s been 2017 for the past two weeks…)
Yeah, but I suck at updating, so here we are.
You know what grinds my gears?
The fact that my laptop can’t connect to the WiFi properly for some reason, so 98% of the time I have to use the small Ethernet cable if I want to browse the internet – which our modem is in the dining area (since it’s the only place to put the box) and I’d rather sit on my comfy couch than the bar stools. First world problems.
Other than that, here are some things that have happened to get you caught up with my life if interested.
Late August, I began submitting in applications to everywhere and anywhere since I was on the verge of being completely broke. Early September, I got a call back from Cost Plus World Market asking if I was interested in an interview. The gal briefly explained what position was available at the time and if I was still interested after that insight that they were holding an open interview the following week.
As much at it is to share, this post is mainly to keep my goals in check. It’s been three months since being unemployed and doing what I want that I’m forgetting what’s really important.
Hey you, Happy Fasha Day!
I’ve honestly been dreading this day for so long, anticipating the hardship that I would face knowing that everyone out there is celebrating with their “World’s Greatest Dad”. I was unsure how I would feel about the holiday and didn’t want to find out.
Unfortunately life and calendar days do go on and, of course, I had no choice but to face it like a champ. Turns out that I was okay. I am okay. Of course it sucks that we’ll never have our luncheons again, but now I can celebrate in a different way – a celebration of what was once an amazing soul. Also just knowing that you’re still here with me in spirit, that’s more than enough I could ever ask for.
Happy Father’s Day to not only the dads that are still around today, but to those individuals that had lost their best friend as well ❤
Well it certainly *has* been a while since my recent post on here.. published over a month ago, oops. I’d thought I’d take the time to talk about my most recent life changer that happened a week and a half ago: I quit my job. That’s right, I said “enough was enough” and put in my two weeks like there was no tomorrow.
Okay, that’s not how it happened. I honestly was considering it for the longest time, but obviously had to really weigh out the pros and cons and consider all options. Mean, quitting your job is no joke – especially when it’s your only source of income. When it all came down to it, I knew what my decision would be.
I honestly had to quit, there was no other option I could even try. There were so many reasons why I left, like I felt really unappreciated there and I was slowly becoming unhappy. I don’t want to get into too many details just in case, and don’t get me wrong – I was given the best opportunity of a lifetime there, but ultimately I left for one reason: for myself. I knew that the main reason why I was becoming unhappy was because of me. I have went through a lot since the beginning of this year: grieving the loss of my dad, having to put down my Bailey Pup, and at home problems that shouldn’t be mentioned on here, and I’ve never had the time to cope with any of it, let alone take some time to figure myself out and my potential future. It’s always been about me helping others with whatever issue they had (which is totally not a problem – I love helping people out), but I never once took time to help myself out with my own struggles. It’s always been just a ‘shrug of a shoulder and I’ll deal with it later’ kind of thing, which left me to understand the definition of insanity fully. I was going insane and I probably would have gotten worse had I stayed. June 10th was my last day.
What am I doing in the meantime? Right now, I’m taking some time off to just relax, take a breather, and reflect on everything that’s been happening and think of the better future that is in store for me. I did manage to save some money for just in case, but hopefully in a month or two, I’ll be back on my feet for whatever comes my way – I’ll be ready for anything.
Until then, I’m going to enjoy my time for the first time in a long time.
