Bad habit free… someday

Oh right… I have a blog

I guess semi-regularly is once a month in my book?  Oh well, I know you will forgive me.  I have not been overly idle since last I shared, no I have not. Here is a little rundown…

Caffeine – Still caffeine free 🙂 Only once, in the last month have I ever even considered drinking it, and that incident was directly related to having to drive late at night. I made it home in one piece caffeine free. Yay me…

Other bad habits I have yet to tell you about – food, money, health and being a grown up. Don’t worry, we will get to all of them eventually. In the mean time here is some information about how I am changing the habits you still don’t actually know about.

Money – I read Financial Peace Revisited by Dave Ramsey about two weeks ago and it was really the kick in the rear I needed.  Not just about money, but about life.  It is actually the second book by him I have had the pleasure of reading, but when I read an earlier book, I wasn’t in the position to actually do anything about it, or in the right frame of mind to try to change my position.  This time the book really hit home.  I will share more about it some other time.

Job – still at my meaningless boring temporary job.  I am so thankful that I have it, but so sad that I can’t find a teaching job.  I have opened up my search to other states so hopefully I will get something soon.

 

Alright friends let’s hope it isn’t May next time…

On Jobs and Passions

As a recent college graduate (stories on that later), I am smack in the middle of a job hunt.  Problem is there are not many out there, worse, my degree is in teaching and you may not have heard but those jobs are few and far between.  This you see, gets my down.

I envy those who are doing jobs they love.  Those who are pursuing passions and following dreams.  I have a feeling this isn’t a majority of people though.  How many can honestly say they “love” what they do?

It seems that getting a job in my chosen career field might be a year or two away.  So, I must find a way to make money until then.  I would love to make money pursuing a passion but the truth is, I am not sure what they are.  I can’t be passionless, can I?  I mean I like things, but I wouldn’t call them passions.  I am not passionate about fashion, but I like to read about the latest trends.  I like fantasizing about living in Europe, but as a passion?  I haven’t made many steps to actually make it happen.  So what does one do when the passion in your life isn’t something you can make money from, or even recognize?  I guess I will have to figure out what my passion is.  Cultivate it, and then figure out a way to profit from it.

Until then, I am off to find a bill paying job 😦
