Wow I haven’t blogged in a week. My longest since starting this blog. So what’s been up?
Work: so my consulting gig hit a snag this week. Ok not so much of a snag but how it is: inconsistent. Projects have been put on hold and no new ones came in.
So… I made ZERO money this week. Well, I knew this was not going to be the ultimate career move, but a holdover to stop/slow the bleeding somewhat until something better comes along.
So in the downtime I look for a job. Sent some resumes out, networked some. It’s a process.
And honestly, it’s a process that’s really wearing on me, not having a secure income is something I’m not used to. My car lease is over at the end of the year and jumping into a new one may be difficult with no steady income. And yes i CAN live without a car, but that’s an enormous step back for me, especially with Mona living on Long Island.
I need to get back into a mode of making enough money to save for retirement/vacations/a home/etc. I need to pay diem my credit card debt again, I’m back above $8k. Ugh. I need self control and reel it in, though I don’t recall it being a lot of expenses. I really need to get a handle on that fast.
I have to re-focus on a career move. Close on a deal that’s beneficial for me.
Mentally, I have to stop my Woe Is Me thought-cycle that I’ve been in lately. Enough of the Pity Party.
This one breakdown with my job has got me reeling: my self value, my confidence, my place in the world.
Enough of that shit. It’s time to ROCK.
