I hope so! I am so ready for 2013. Has to be much better than 2012!
The worst thing that happened was, I got laid off from my job in March. I went 7 1/2 months without a job. I will admit, the first three months, I really didn’t look for a job as I was hoping to start my own business, and I wouldn’t have to really start looking. Then when reality came and slapped me in the face, I realized, ummm, yeah, you best get on the horn and get yourself a job! I sent out upwards of 30 resumes a week. I was sending them out for everything! I had 3 interviews that entire time. Yes, 3 interviews in 4 1/2 months. But, the 3rd time was a charm! I was offered a job and started mid-October. Woohoo! I actually love the job and the people I work with. It’s in Customer Service, kinda, but, not the kind I was used to. I actually enjoy this one! It is making less money than I was making at my old job, but, more than I was making on unemployment!
So, why am I looking forward to 2013? I am an optimist. I believe there is something good coming around every corner. I am looking for ways to supplement my current income and am really just hoping for the best. I am looking forward to more quality time with my daughter. I hope to lose the weight I really need to lose. I also hope to find love. I miss that companionship you have with that S.O. in your life. I also want to spend more quality time enjoying life in general. Due to financial restraints, I haven’t made the time to go out with friends, like I really want to. Even if I have friends over for snacks/movie/game night. I am realizing, I miss and need that interaction. Being a social person like I am, it’s killing me. One final thing? Getting my house decluttered! OMG, I still have so much stuff, it’s ridiculous. I had a pile of things next to my desk that I had not touched in THREE years. Yep, I didn’t even look. Dumped them right into the trash. That’s a good start, right???
What are you hoping to accomplish this year?
