Change on the Horizon

Monday, May 26, 2014

May has been kicking my butt. I've fallen off the wagon a bit, not a lot of activity, less water, though food has been not too terrible.
I've been through two interviews, and last Monday, unrelated to either interview, I was offered temp work that is data entry with a bit of copywriting. Should be extremely boring, 30 hours a week, $14 an hour, not even very far away in terms of driving. First paycheck next Friday, paid weekly. It will still take a good month for me to financially get back on my feet :(
I feel like stress has subconsciously getting to me. I've wanted to be a little lazy because I knew it wouldn't last much longer. I'm grateful for just 30 hours a week. I still feel like I want to ease back into work, and feel possessive of having time to myself.
What's funny is I've been lazy in some respects, but not in others. I've done even more cleaning, and am nearly done with EVERYTHING. Today I finished the utility closet. Took out the shelving unit, the cat box, cleaned the floors and everything before it went back in. I have some spots of the kitchen to sort and re-organize, but just a few. Then the tiny bit of organizing in the garage and everything is great. Changmin could use a bath, but I don't want to pay (or can't even, really...) for a car wash. Maybe I can go to Tom's house and use his hose, hmmm...
Almost done with my last few revision to my contest submission before I send it to my last person for edits. At least that's on schedule, as it's due the 10th. I feel like there's not much else going on with me. I applied yesterday for a job I really want located in DC. It'd be a big change for us, but one we want in some respects. My husband is from DC metro, and his parents and some friends are there. I also love DC, and the job would have me come back to Columbus on occasion. The temp job is only until (or through? I'm not sure) September. So the goal now is to find a 'real' job in the next few months.
I'm super tired tonight, and happy I want to go to sleep now. My lunch is packed, and I hope to get up early enough to go to the gym for a bit before work. So, here we go...

    I fell off the wagon around the time of my move and haven't been able to get things back together. I'm hoping since June is about to start that I'll refocus and get back on track!

    Congrats on the temp job!!

    This is wonderful. I know it is a contract nob but you have pointed your life in the right direction. Dream big and go for it!
