As you may already know, or have gathered by the title of this post, I am currently unemployed. I decided I needed to find a job more aligned with my interests and a little closer to home (I was spending 25% of my paycheck on gas). So I quit.
I start school full-time in September, so I still haven’t decided if there will be an actual job “search” or if I will commit all of my life to school.
In the meantime, I have some things I want to take care of:
1- Spend some time traveling.
I have a trip to Minnesota planned for a friend’s wedding, but I would really love to go someplace out of the ordinary. Perhaps a romantic getaway to Hawaii? Perhaps a trip to Seattle? I have been using AirfareWatchdog to put the feelers out for cheap tickets.
Any suggestions on vacation spots?
2- Read more.
The Zookeeper’s Wife by D. Ackermann and The Help by Kathryn Stockett are both on my library list.
What’s on your list?
3- As usual, getting skinny is on my list.
But this time, I brought reinforcements! My fellow blogger friend, Adventures in Womanland, has been getting mucho results from Jillian Michael’s 30 day Shred. Her before and after pictures inspired me so much, that I actually hopped on Amazon and now I will be shredding by Thursday.
I’m a little scared, but I figure 30 days is not an impossible commitment. I can do this.
I plan on documenting the journey here, but I can’t promise it will be pretty.
What are you doing for your body?
