Okay, today is the fourth of February 2015.
Can I just say What the Hell?
Clearly 2015 is going to go a hell of a lot faster than 2014 did. At least for me anyways.
I don’t have much to say lately, mostly because my life consists of working and more working.
But that’s precisely the reason that I want to say something.
You see, I work about 50 hours a week at my main job and then I got a side job to cover some other small things.
So it ends up being 55 to 60 hours a week.
I also decided that I didn’t want to work my full-time extra hours at night or on Saturdays anymore, so I have started getting up early so I can try to be to work at 6 am.
My shift starts at 8, but if I can be there at 6, I will get the two extra hours without having to stay extra some nights.
Although, it doesn’t always workout that way and I do have to stay extra one night a week.
Then after work I have to find those other 5 hours to put into this side job that I need temporarily.
Combine that with being in school after work as well and having to complete all my readings/assignments.
Needless to say, I feel like all I do is work in one form or another.
Now, am I required to work 50 hours a week at my full-time job?
Yes and no.
No, in the fact that my company absolutely does not require this from me. Yes, because my situation financially and in my life does call for this.
Having moved across three states last year (really only 4 months ago), I do still have some residual debt in my life that just won’t quit.
For right now, to make ends meet for the next 10 months or so, I am going to have to run pretty hard unless I magically get offered a salary position.
So, for the next few months I get to work as hard as I can with as little discretionary spending as possible.
This leaves me with very few things that I will be doing outside of work.
This is why I felt the need to post on my blog, even if this post in sort of tired rant about my life situation, but it’s important to have hobbies and things that you do outside of working as hard as you possibly can.
Blogging is one of my hobbies and I have more, but a lot of them require money.
So, this is a post to get myself back in the habit of blogging occasionally. Even if it’s just a few words or a weird photo.
Here we go…
