Not getting anywhere!

Wouldn’t it be awesome to come into some money, or like win the lotto or something? Then, I can just pay it off, and not have to think about it anymore. It’s been really annoying having this bill. I need to pay it off, just get it over with!

Grr

I hate school!

Okay, I am just being very dramatic. But still. I have been having such a hard time focusing and continuing this schooling. The good thing is that this semester is almost over.. Which is pretty nice!

I am hanging in there, which really what other choice do I have?



Become a psychiatric nurse (read all 12 entries…)
Break until Summer

With going to school this semester, I have decided to take a break with this. I wanted to work on becoming a psychiatric nurse. Also, I found out that if I did do this, I will have a $2 raise. However, I am so overwhelmed with doing my homework and staying afloat, that I don’t think I can actively work on this right now..

During the summer though, during my break between semesters, I will be studying and rereading things about psychiatric nursing.

Money is tight with school. It sucks! I don’t want to take out a loan to pay for this semester. But I am considering doing so. I really don’t want to though! Grr! Anyway.

AMOUNT IN SAVINGS: $2,125

read the New Testament (read all 7 entries…)
Mark 5

Currently not reading this every day like I should be. I have been really slow with this. I need to spend time reading at least a few verses a night, if not a chapter or two. This isn’t something that should be a chore. So, I want to spend time doing this out of the goodness of my heart and really understand and take in what I am reading.

When Jesus heard this, he told them, “Healthy people don’t need a doctor sick people do. I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners.” -Mark 2:17

This is something that resonates well with me. This is why I need to invest in my time of reading the Bible. I need to work towards being healed.

Okay, so this is a TMI post, but hey it’s something I have never done before so… I am going to count it! The other day (Saturday) I had been a bit bored watching the fight with my husband and his friends (it was the prelims). Anyway, I downloaded Kindle app on my cell phone and ended up buying (free) a book that was basically erotic literature. I read one chapter while sitting there in the dark with him and his friends. Like one really hot steamy chapter.

Anyway, yeah, it was pretty intense ;)

Gym

I went to the gym today. It had been a while since I went, and I had to relive the whole “not in a great shape kinda thing” that being said, my legs are a bit sore from the bike. Anyway, I will be going on Wednesday and Thursday as well. I need to re-implement this into my daily (day off) routine again.

Day 31: Less Coming In, More Contentment

LESS COMING IN

Wow, so, I am at the end of this journey. I am going to sit and reflect how I have been, what I have learned and how much I have gained… What I have left to do as well. This has been a great journey.

This journey has been about letting go of some of the negative stuff in my life and being purposeful about adding more positive things. This has been a great deal of work.

Things to remember:
  • The less we let in, the less we will have to get rid of later.
  • Refuse to let anything in your home that isn’t absolutely essential.
  • Refuse to add to your schedule things that don’t need to be done.
  • Realize that everything we bring in is a choice.

TODAY’S CHALLENGE:
Evaluate the current state of where you are in your life right now. Ask yourself the hard questions. Is my life full of the things that don’t matter? Am I still letting in too much heartache, too much stress and too much stuff? Resolve right now to be intentional and purposeful with your heart and time and environment. Choose to let in only that which adds joy and peace and contentment. I have come a long way. I feel like this will be a daily struggle, but with time, I will be able to figure this out more appropriately.

application for Graduation

I applied for graduation yesterday. I know it seems like crazy fast. Okay, so I am not scheduled to graduate until December 2014, but still. I think it’s pretty exciting to have already applied for it!

Anyway, classes are going okay. It’s mostly a lot of work, but not hard work. My hardest class right now is my research class (which is just very time consuming and requires a lot of stuff for me to do). But other than that classes are going okay.

I am not liking the financial aspect of it though! I just made another payment today for it and I am not in anyway happy about this! I am going to fill out my FASFA today and well I might have to break down and actually get another student loan! Grr! I really don’t want to, but…. Not sure what else to do.

haha so it bothered me!

Okay, so it bothered me that I was shy of 2000, by not much. So, I decided to input another $25.90, so that I can be at least at $2000. So, yeah, nice even number!

AMOUNT IN SAVINGS: $2000
AMOUNT NEEDED TO REACH GOAL: $1000



Save $3000 (read all 8 entries…)
still shy of $2000

Okay, so things have been a bit tight. Well that and the whole school expense going on too (which really sucks!) anyway, I put in $75 into savings today (I still owe myself another $75) but we will see.

Anyway, here is where I am at

AMOUNT IN SAVINGS: $1974.10
AMOUNT NEEDED TO REACH GOAL: $1025.90

16. Applied for Graduation

Okay, so, I applied for my graduation for my BSN today. I am going to count this as something I have never done before, because, well I have never graduated with a bachelors before.

Anyway, I went to school and applied for my bachelor’s certification today. I am pretty excited (of course it’s not till December) but yeah..

NEW THINGS TRIED:
1. Attend Church Alone
2. Shoot a Gun, Apply for CHL

Day 30: Less Holiday Overkill, More Memories

LESS HOLIDAY OVERKILL

I know that this is not near the Christmas season, but hey, it’s never too early to start planning. That and that is what is next during this time.

Strategies to Have a Better Holiday Season
1. Plan Ahead: set a budget
2. Reserve Space in your Schedule: block out downtime
3. Cut Down on Gifts: “something you want, something you need, something to wear and something to read” rule
4. Volunteer: to spread holiday cheer
5. Eliminate the Unessential: determine your priorities

MORE MEMORIES:

We were together. I forget the rest. – Walt Whitman

Ways to Help Make Memories:
1. Make Memories with Food: perfect one or two recipes, make signature dishes
2. Make Memories with Laughter: play games
3. Make Memories with Tradition: they help us know who were are and where we’ve come from

Okay, So...

I went to the dietitian on Tuesday. Of course I hate going to see her. It’s hard to see someone who never had a weight problem, tell you what you do wrong. Like seriously. Instead of being encouraging over all the good I have done, she focuses on my caffeine intake and tells me to quit the crackers (I have 4 crackers a day!) Anyway, who cares!

Anyway, I am 16 pounds shy of my goal weight. So, yeah I teeter one or two pounds on any given day. But, yeah, I am getting there. I am proud of myself, even though others aren’t quite supportive!
