I know I keep saying that I will write more, but life happens sometimes. And laziness, but that is a whole other monster.
So many things have been happening over the past 8 months, that I should have shared with you all, but didn’t. I know, I know. No need to tell me.
I turned 30 this year; May 30th to be exact. I always thought I would feel a little differently when I turned 30 but, I really don’t. I always saw 30 as a big milestone. I had so many deadlines at 30 that went unfulfilled. I know it’s not good to give yourself deadlines, but that’s how I work. Anyway, I do have the sudden urge to go out a little bit more but that could be because my money situation has gotten a lot better. I will elaborate more on turning 30 as it deserves its on post.
I got a new car; it was long overdue. My baby Cherry (my old car), was getting sicker and sicker by the day. I started to put a lot more strain on her since I got my new job back in August 2015. My job is over 30 miles away so, driving to and from work 2 hours a day was not good for her; it was time for an upgrade. I got Midnight (my new car) in March. Now let me tell you about Midnight, she is just an updated version of Cherry, but in black. She is amazing, as was Cherry when I first got her. Midnight is also a manual (shifter).
Midnight is the only car I have ever had that was a manual. Yes, you read that right, I’m a noob when it comes to driving manuals. So new, that I could not drive her off the lot. My mother had to do it as she has been driving manuals for over 30 years; those are the only cars she buys. Pretty much, I took a risk that I don’t regret. It’s still a learning process, obviously I won’t be an expert at 6 months, but I’m a lot better than I was when I first started. I seldom stall now.
More stuff; I’ve been to North Carolina and New York in the past 4 months. Last month I started a new position with my current company and I’m liking it so far. It seems like a lot less headaches than my previous position. Transferring out of my previous position was long overdue, but I am glad I stuck with it and found another position. Besides, I do like the company I am currently employed with, so it’s working out well. My current department is smaller, so they are a close group. I’m hoping to feel like a part of the team in the coming weeks. I’m technically still in the training stages.
That’s pretty much what I have been up to the past 8 months. I will elaborate on more things in upcoming posts. Don’t worry, I have already started writing them.
