Hey guys! Welcome back. This has been a really big week for me, so I am really excited to share some of the big things that happened. It has been pretty stressful, but that’s just because it’s all happening at once. So I am really excited to share all that has happened and give you a preview of something super top secret that I have been working on. And hopefully soon I will have someone else working on it with me. But for now it’s very much still in the beginning stages and I will be sharing more details as time goes on. I am really excited about it though and I can’t wait to share that and several other things that happened this past week.
But let’s start with last Sunday. It seems like a really long time ago, but also such a short time ago at the same time. But last Sunday was super interesting. I went grocery shopping for the first time in a month. I was happy to finally get some food even though it wasn’t much. It lasted a few days though which was really nice. My roommates and I also went to a store that sells crystals and it was super interesting. I didn’t buy anything, but I might in the future. It’s something I have been looking into more recently because they are said to have different qualities that help with different things. So if you have any favorites, let me know in the comments.
Monday was my first day of work! I was so excited and also extremely nervous. But it got better and I really feel good about this one. I feel like this is a really good job for me and it suits me really well. They have even started asking me if I have any interest in moving up in the company (obviously not for a while), but it’s super exciting. It is a lot of learning and I have to keep up with so much because I have never had a job like this before, but I think it will be okay. And eventually I may end up working from home which will be super helpful and a lot easier on me. But for now things are going alright.
Tuesday and Wednesday were also work days. And that is literally all I did. I work nine hours a day, so by the time I get home at 7:00 p.m., eat, shower, and do all the other basics, there isn’t really a lot of other time for other things. But I am trying to get into a better routine and get things in order so I can get back on track. And that is why there was not any podcast episodes this week. I missed Monday’s episode, so I figured I would just postpone both episodes and try to get back on track this week. Which means tomorrow I need to come home and immediately get that up. But hopefully it will all work out.
Thursday was laundry day. I did get a lot of work behind the scenes done on Thursday as well. Thursday and Friday are my days off for the next eleven weeks, so I have those two days to catch up on everything, get work done, and do all the adult things that need to get done. This week I also did a lot of resting because those first three days really kicked my butt. But it’s getting easier and I really like the people I work with. So it’s not really that bad. I just needed some time to relax and breathe a little bit. Friday was also a day full of me trying to catch up and figure out what my new routine is going to look like. We’re still working on it though, clearly.
And yesterday I was back at work. I don’t really remember it all that much though which is weird because it was literally just yesterday. I guess nothing too exciting happened. When I got home from work I ate and tried to get a little bit of work done. But it wasn’t anything too serious or exciting. I haven’t really had much time after work, but that’s okay. I will hopefully get back into the groove of everything very soon. I’m looking forward to everything calming down and once I get paid at the end of next week I will really be back on track and everything will start going a lot smoother and evenly.
But I think the time has come for me to finally share with you something I have been working on. I’m not going to give away too many details here, but it is something that I have been working on for a little bit now behind the scenes. And this project is something that you guys will be able to be involved in and share your own stories. It will be an online publication where you can send your blog posts, articles, and other content to be shared either credited or anonymously. It’s a safe place where you can fully open up without fear of judgement or ridicule. The idea is to have a place where people can come and find their voice and share what they feel they need to share.
And the idea for this actually came up in one of my recent therapy sessions. My therapy recently has been tapping into my creative side much more which I can really appreciate. One of the things we have been talking about is the fact that I find a lot of joy in helping other people and giving back as much as I can. And one of the things I have always struggled with is not always feeling heard or not having a safe place. So I wanted to find a way for other people who are dealing with their own struggles to have a place to share because I know not all websites are super open to all topics. But that will be coming soon, just stay tuned for more updates!
Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this. Please like it if you did. Let us know in the comments how your week went and if you did anything exciting! Don’t forget to follow before you leave if you have not already and I hope to see you next time!
