Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!
A quick update: I’ve put my notice in for my overnight shifts. My last one will be August 25th. I took on too much and I am realizing that. I am upset with myself, but also need to be realistic. I can’t work 7 days a week. It’s just not something I can swing anymore. This is for my own sanity.
That being said, and since I am truly doing my best to work on myself and accomplishing my own personal goals, I’ve been thinking a lot about traveling; 2019 and 2020 are going to be full of adventures with friends & solo excursions, that is the goal. As a gift to myself, I am attempting to pay off my credit card and a solid chunk of my remaining car payments as well, before Christmas/New Years this year. Money may be tight up until then, but getting that debt off of my shoulders will absolutely help in the long run and it will give me the opportunity to really save for these vacations.
On the bucket list for 2019:
- Northern California to visit friends at/near Yosemite
- Southern California to visit family
- Jamaica, with friends
- New Orleans with friends
- CAMPING ANYWHERE.
On the bucket list for 2020:
- Ireland with friends, to celebrate our 30th birthdays!
- Germany and/or Holland to visit friends
- CAMPING. I love it and I just don’t do it enough
We’ll have to see how this all plays out, but these goals are absolutely do-able and I intend to pursue them while I can. Let the adventure(s) begin!
