Okay, so I’ve been debating this for a while and I think the only way to move forward it to test this thought and see how it goes. Next week I’m going to start blogging Monday, Wednesday, Friday instead of Tuesday, Thursday, just to see how I like it. If I do like it, that will become the new schedule, if not, I’ll switch back. Seems simple enough.
I’ve been thinking about this for a long time, but especially since my interview. I didn’t get the job, by the way, for those who have been waiting and wondering. I was told that they had filled the position and that I was clearly over qualified for packing up books. I’m pretty sure this was just to ease the blow. But I’m okay with it, really. I applied because the job was there and it would work out really well with my husband’s work schedule and juggling the car. But, apparently, God has other plans for me, and that’s cool too.
People seem to be under the impression that this means I’m on a great job hunt now. This is actually not the case. I have thought about getting a job in the past but I don’t think I’m going to go out and actively search at this point. People keep saying that maybe this is a sign that I should, but I can’t help but feel that if God put the perfect job in front of me and didn’t give it to me that I must be okay where I am. I don’t feel led to search for a job. I do feel led to work on my personal time with God and my daily health routine. I do feel led to put more effort into what I’m doing now to make it better and more pleasing to God. I don’t feel like I need to go out and work. Would it help with paying off college loans and saving for a house? Yeah, probably. But we’re okay right now, and who knows, maybe things will change when we move out of this apartment, and, hopefully, into a house. We’ll see. But for now, I’m good here.
And this is why I’m changing days, experimentally, at least. I want to put more effort into my writing, and one way to do that is increase the amount of blogging that I do. It will also make going up to see my family easier as I won’t have to worry about preparing or writing something quickly before I drop my husband off at work and drive up to see them. I enjoy writing with cats on me, but they are so distracting. I don’t want to have to write when I go up to see them, which is almost always on a Tuesday or a Thursday, so I’m switching the days for convenience. We’ll see how this goes, and hopefully it won’t be too much. I’m a little afraid that more writing won’t necessarily mean more things to write about and that I’ll burn out quickly, but I think I can handle it. Here’s hoping. Have a lovely day, my friends.
