Weekly Recap (1)

IMG_20151127_232403

I’ve gotten a few suggestions from readers about posts, including “Hey, why aren’t you telling us more about your day-to-day?”

So, I’m starting a weekly recap in response to that. Woohoo!

Big Things That Happened This Week

  • I rejected a job as a full-time Content Strategist on Sunday to own life. Then was elated on Monday to see that they were interested in me as a freelancer, so I tried to work the original job into a freelance gig (with more benefits for them in the long run). On Tuesday, they decided not to let me do the original job as a freelancer. Instead, they are going to keep me as a contact for future gigs. It’s was an emotional roller coaster and I’m glad to be over it.
  • With that said, I’ve got a lot of new projects happening right now. The craziest this week involves grading lessons that teachers sell on a web site based in the UK. I am currently winning the contest for most graded and the deadline to finish is Sunday. Let’s just say I’m learning more about math than I really needed to know due to my need for holiday cash.
  • It’s seriously committing to colder weather here and I am evidently not evolutionarily equipped to deal with that mess. I used to walk to the bus stop in February in a hoodie in the frigid Appalachian mountain climate. I’ve gone soft.
  • This fall is better for me than last in regards to me letting my plants do their yearly die and come back routine. Last year, I wanted all of them to live inside the whole time. This year, I learned from last and know that some plants just can’t hang. Lemon verbena is just going to (literally) lose its shit (leaves) and I can’t do anything to fix that. So, everyone that goes dormant, or can go dormant, is heading to the porch. I’m hoping I can keep a few in the house, if only to clean the air.
  • Our trip to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is quickly approaching and I can’t even right now.

What are some big things that happened for you this week? Let me know in the comments!

  2. That sounds like a bit of a drama with the job, but I hope it’s sorting itself out for you!

    I guess a little extra maths isn’t so bad, I always enjoyed maths and it would make a nice change from my day job 🙂

    I love these kinds of posts, I find there’s so much more to chat about when you share the every day things. But, that’s just my preference 🙂

    • Definitely some job drama, but this week was much more stable.

      What’s your day job? I’ve been Instagram stalking you for a while, btw. Lol. Thanks for letting me know that recaps aren’t in vain! ❤

  3. It sounds like it’s been quite a week for you, the job ups and downs in particualr. I think you’re bold to keep yourself freelance and I hope it works out well for you on this. I hope one day to follow in those steps.
    As for your plants losing their shit (leaves) let them, it has to happen like many things in life and we can’t hold onto them.
    I hope this turns into a great week for you 🙂

    • It has ben quite a week! Thanks — you can totally do it, too. I recommend slowly phasing into it. I quit my previous job abruptly (for good reason, I promise) and don’t recommend it.
      I see that a lot better now as my plant relationships are getting more involved. I think it will make me a better parent. LOL
      Have a lovely week, too!
