I feel like it’s been quite a while since my last post, though in reality it hasn’t been overly long. I suppose it just feels like a long time because every moment of every day for me has been SO dang busy.
Nearly every day of January, other than working, was spent looking for a second job. Just after New Year’s, Joshua and I decided that it would be a helpful idea for me to find a second job, if possible. I won’t go into details, but we have about six big expenses coming up this year, two of them medical, and we realized with our current income, it would be quite difficult to find the necessary funds. Thus, the job search.
Lord willing, after submitting six applications and multiple inquiries, I heard back from a company and within two weeks (filled with studying, passing a qualification assessment, and all the legal stuff), I started work! Technically, my first day was February 1st. As of now, I’ve completed four full work days and I’m enjoying the job! I’m just grateful for the extra income and something else to put on my resume. 🙂
For those of you wondering, my second job involves me being a Social Media Evaluator for Appen. I’m extremely grateful for another work-from-home job, which enables me to still take care of dinner and some quick things around the house on breaks. Combining this job with my original job, I honestly can’t express how grateful I am for the opportunity to work an eight-hour day completely from the flexibility of my computer! It is such an incredible blessing. ❤ I know it won’t last forever, so I am certainly wanting to enjoy it and be grateful for it while this is my situation. ❤
Anyway, that’s been my life lately! I also barely started editing my NaNoWriMo novel, but that was the day before I started work for Appen, so since then I haven’t had a chance to get back to it. I’ll have to figure out a time to do so!
Until next time,
