Outside the Blogging Life
I spent a lot of time this past week hanging out with my dad and sister. On New Year’s Eve we had a nice dinner with Hungarian blood and liver sausage and mashed potatoes. My dad went to bed around 10:30 pm New Year’s Eve and I went to bed at 12:02 am after I wished my friends, my sister and my cat a Happy New Year.
Other than hanging out with my family, I’ve been planning what I want to do with my blog and making future posts about the books I’ve read. I think so far this year I’ve already finished one book and I’m about 40% finished another one which I hope to have read by tonight.
Tonight I’m heading back to London, and I plan on handing in my two-week notice at work. I’ve done a lot of reflecting on myself and what I want. This job is not what I want, I’m not happy; I’ve been having bad anxiety just thinking about going back to work, and it’s caused some panic attacks to occur. I’m currently doing what I love, talking about books and reading them. I know what I want to do for my career, and it’s not child care. In hindsight I wish that I figured this out in 2015 when I graduated from Brock University with my English Degree in hand.
For the upcoming week, other than handing in my resignation letter to work, it should be fairly quiet. I signed up to take some business courses at the local college to hopefully help me with this blog and with a crochet business I want to start to make some money. I also have a LOT of yarn that I bought over the last 6 years and some of it was donated to me.
I hope all of you had a restful break over the holidays and spent time with loved ones. See you guys on the next post!
