I’m taking steps to get my life together (or at least to get my finances together), which may or may not end up with me dropping my full-time status to go part-time at two jobs. That sounds counter-intuitive, I know, but I’ll actually be able to make more money because I’m currently not allowed to work more than 40 hours a week or earn overtime.
My biggest concern at this point is health insurance, so I’m on the healthcare.gov site and yes, it’s as terrible as everyone says it is. I’m currently covered, but if I drop to part-time I won’t be able to keep my coverage, so I’m looking into other options. Does anyone know how to health insurance? How do I adult?
My body is reverting to my pre-half marathon condition, and I don’t like it, so it’s time to get serious about fitness again. I’ve run maybe three times since the half on February 28, so I’ve completely lost any endurance I previously had, but the important thing is to get out there and get moving, no matter how slow I am or how many walk breaks I take.
I’m keeping track of my food intake (mostly to cut down on mindless snacking) and I went for a run/walk this morning. I alternated 30 sec of running and 30 sec of walking, but we all have to start somewhere, right?
Life update: I’m in Sacramento for the weekend, visiting with my dad’s side of the family. It’s wonderful to get to see everybody, but I wish it were under different circumstances. My Aunt Julia was murdered by her roommate/ex last week. I wish I had more to add, but I’m not the most verbose when it comes to sharing personal things. So, yeah.
Ugh my roommate called into work today and it’s totally ruining my day off. Not because I don’t like my roommate, but because I was going to sit in my pajamas and watch Netflix all day and now I have to take a shower and put a bra on and be social.
My septum retainer fell out during work yesterday and I couldn’t get it back in. I’m really bummed because I don’t have the money to get it redone for a while and I’m surprised by how much I don’t feel like “me” without it.
I still haven’t heard back from Disney, but I’m loving my job at Universal and I’m trying my best to enjoy the present instead of always looking to the future. When I lost my seasonal status two days after moving back to Florida, I felt like my life was over. Now I’m realizing that there are amazing opportunities for me everywhere and I just need to be open to new possibilities. Life doesn’t always go according to the plans I make for myself, but that’s okay.
