So just a little update on my insane life right now.
We just bought a house that is covered in mold. When I say covered I mean that all of the sheet rock, insalation, cabinets, flooring, trim, duct work and everything else in the house needs to be replaced because it is in every crevice of the home. This is our first home but we are treating it more like an investment property then a residential home but we will be living there for a short time so there is a lot of excitement surrounding it. We have my father helping us with this because this is what he does for a living and he’s dealt with mold before but we are balancing a personal relationship with a business one and that can be stressful at times.
I am going back to school. It is a two year program and I’m actually pretty excited to go. On the other hand I have not been so successful with college before. Previously, I got lazy, didn’t go to class, slacked off and got poor grades. I’m really committed to this right now because my SO and I need something more stable then my current job and when I decided to go back to school I was really bored with my life and felt really stagnant. I’m worried about staying motivated and keeping up on my school work. Plus, I’m just nervous to go back to school again and have to be on a schedule.
I also just got a new job! Thank freaking God!!! I will be waitressing which is new to me but I will be making more then I do now (hopefully). My schedule at school is from 8am to 12pm so I have a lot of time left in the day to work and be at our new house. I’m pretty nervous to start waitressing mainly because my biggest fear is dropping an entire tray of food on someone. How did you previous or current waitresses do it? Any tips on how to be the best waitress you can be? Also, how many customers do you typically help on a week day and how much do you typically make in tips? I know it varies SOOO much but I’m trying to get a general idea of how this works. If it helps I will be at a bowling alley that is connected to a restaurant.
How do you keep it all together while having so much going on in your life? How do you stay organized and attempt to keep the stress levels down? Also, any advice on how to keep your personal time with your SO at a priority? I’m afraid he will start to feel neglected after all this new crazy stuff starts.
