I hope everyone is having a fabulous February!
I can’t believe how much it’s flying by, then again, I feel like I always say that!
But really though…. when you are always busy, time flies by much faster, too.
And lately I feel like I am always grinding. In a good way- I have been doing a lot of things to try to set up my future and just working hard in general at bettering myself.
It’s been awhile since I have written a Currently post. Looking back it’s been since October?! So here we go…
I offered to cook for Frankie for Valentines this year, but he opted that we go out. We had a wonderful night! I also got him some yummy bakery items. (which didn’t last very long)
School is in full swing with my Graphic Design class. In addition to this, I am looking into applying to a Web Design & Programming degree program. (I used to sit for hours and code my Myspace layout back in the day and I loved that sh*t, so we’ll see if I love this too) I read that they do night and summer classes so am hoping to apply by the summer, take a class & see how I do/ if I like it and then go from there. I hope to do both Graphic & Web programs together. P.S. I know I am crazy.
BUT anything with web and design in my opinion is a really smart choice right now. (it will always be needed and web developers can make some really good money) And while I enjoy my job often, I am a case manager and you can’t really do that forever. I have been thinking hard and working hard on other ways to make money- even if it’s on the side for awhile until I make another profitable income from it.
Poshmark, Ebay, & Thrifting:
I have also been working really hard on my selling on Poshmark (sold 3 things so far and am almost at 3k followers- woohoo!) I sell on Ebay too! (Between both sites I have sold 4 things within the last 2 months, which I think is pretty good!) Remember my Thrift Haul & Poshmark post? I am cutting myself off from more thrifting at least until I make a marketable profit from the last thrift- which totaled $80.00.
Frankie and I have been looking for a house on and off for about a year and a half. We are more serious about it now and have met with a mortgage company and will meet with the realtor next week. We have seen some houses with creepy basements (definitely on the do not want list) and we have gotten to know what we want and don’t want in a house.
Keeping up with everything else….
I still work 40 hours a week and my job has gotten a lot busier in the last 2 months (grateful for this though), I still go to the gym at least once a week- the past few weeks it’s been Zumba classes. I have also been consistent the last 2 weeks with only having 1 coffee a day ( 2 on a really bad day,) drinking less alcohol/more tea, and meditating and journaling more. #Selfcare
Oh and the blog! And seeing friends when I can. Damn, that’s a lot when I really write it down..
Young Living Essential Oils.
Did you see my last post? Mom and I have been pretty obsessed with our Young Living Essential oil diffuser. Make sure if you decide to join our love & purchase one of your own, you use our member ID code in my last post!
This goes along with my Currently Doing section but I have a few solid things I want to work on right now:
- Maintain less coffee & alcohol
- Attend yoga 1 x a week in addition to the gym. This is harder right now with school, but just requires more planning with my homework schedule.
- Keep meditating.
- Work on Poshmark & Ebay for a few hours every week and up my sales.
- Apply to Web Design program and register for a summer class.
- Pay off debt & save money. I have been paying off my credit card bill little by little and now I just got a new medical bill. Sigh.…adulting.
Currently thinking about…
This time last year we were planning our dream trip to Santorini, Greece. I can’t believe it’s almost been a year since we went.
This year because we are house hunting and saving we may just take a trip to Florida…Frankie has never been and nana and papa have a condo there we may be able to stay at.
I have really been dreaming about going to Thailand someday. Anyone been?
What have you been currently up to?
