I haven’t had a “real” job since I left my position in January. In some ways it’s been incredibly freeing and relaxing, but it another way it’s been making me crazy and giving me anxiety. Let me explain.
Obviously, like anyone trying to run a business or work entirely from freelance, it’s a hard life. It’s a hard life that takes an enormous amount of time with not a huge payoff (literally). Since January I’ve been working like a dog on blog / online related activities, other freelance related income and managing Brad’s freelance art business. At times the income flow is slow and sometimes it’s not at all. Oh yeah – and I’ve been a full time student
Unfortunately all this freelance work does not pay the bills and it’s time for me to get a “real” part time job for while I’m in school. Job searching is a hard life! I have some really specific needs for the job I work and I’ve spent the last couple weeks communicating with a few different companies seeing if we can meet in the middle. Last night I had a meeting about meeting in the middle with a company that I would be really excited to work for. I am really crossing my fingers that the details can work out exactly as we discussed last night. If so, I could start working as early as the end of this week. And even better I’ve had two really awesome advances in some of my freelance efforts. Can’t say what yet, but things are looking GOOD for me right now and I’m so grateful
Speaking of work, pushups are KILLING ME!!!!!!!
Look at me, I can barely flex
I’ve got a mission to eat really clean this week so I’m all ready to do my final pushup test. Here are some of the stars of my meals yesterday:
This was my lunch and was the most delicious thing that touched my lips.
- plain yogurt with vanilla Manitoba Harvest hemp protein
- my homemade cereal
- a huge helping of homemade applesauce
For dinner I hade a grilled cheese panini with a side salad, if you can call this puppy a side.
- shredded carrots
- roasted dill chickpeas
