I’m doing something different today! I’ve always enjoyed these on other blogs and I realized that I would probably enjoy writing a similar post. Plus, I never really delve into too much personal stuff on here – considering I keep things mostly anonymous and all. Today, I’m changing that up a bit. Hop on and take a little imaginary journey with me today! 🙂
Let’s imagine we’re sharing a little coffee date this chilly Monday! I’ve got my infamous iced coffee with just a little cream & stevia! I’m always drinking iced coffee, but VERY rarely, you might catch me with a hot beverage!
If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you that these past couple weeks have been very rough on me. I’ve been sick pretty much since January 5th. Walking pneumonia and an unrelenting sinus infection have not been kind to me. I’m wondering if my sinuses are super sensitive since I’ve had surgery on them this past year, but needless to say, I couldn’t win the battle alone. I’m midway through all of my antibiotics and finally starting to feel normal again. All of this sick time has led to A LOT of overwhelm in various aspects of my life – job, social life, home, this blog, you name it. I’m slowly digging my way out.
If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you that I’m planning a major job change. I’ve got an interview happening next week for a lateral move at my current place of employment. If that doesn’t work, my biggest goal is to just be out of my current job by May 1st. I don’t know what I’m going to do, but I know for my own sanity that I’ll need to leave soon.
If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you that I’m gearing up for some fun creative (off blog) projects this spring that are giving me life! These projects are going to be very exciting for me as a performing artist & teaching artist. Lots of opportunities seemed to have stockpiled and showed up all at once! I’ll take it, but it’s going be crazy & awesome – all rolled up together!
If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you that I’m planning to change the setup of some of my posts and goals here on the blog. I know I want to start highlighting how much I am saving and how much I’m earning from some of my side gigs. I think that adding that will help me with accountability and tracking my successes over time. I know I’m going to highlight my goals differently, that is when I have a moment to actually sit down and write out some goals.
If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you that I’ve got a new guy in my life. Everything surrounding how we met and have maintained our relationship is very serendipitous. After a very long time of being apart, we’re about to be together again for a few days and I can’t even tell you how excited I am to see him. I’m not going to jinx it by telling you the whole story, but trust me, altogether it’s a good one!
Whew! That was a whammy of an update!
Tell me something that’s new with you in the comments!
