In a State of Fine

Somehow more than two months have gone by without me posting anything. I’ve quite simply been busy.

Busy learning how to be myself again.

My first 90 days at my new part-time job have been less than moderately challenging. It is quite administrative, which leaves me craving something a little more challenging (like in jobs of the past), but I’m not quite there yet. This part-time gig is helping me (just barely) pay the bills and have the time I need for my kids. It is not, however, helping me have enough money to move and survive outside of my parents house.

I did manage to complete my 12-week human resources course that I started in September, and I passed the certification exam! That was quite the day. I was soooo proud of myself. It felt good to succeed at such big challenge that was all for me. Mine.

The point of getting certified is to lead to bigger and better career options. Now I need to figure out my next career move, but I’m feeling a little comfortable and stuck. Job searching is so draining and time-consuming. I know I have to do it again, but I’m still recovering from the 7-month long job rejection trail from March – October 2018.

I’m also still trying to get divorced. I don’t know how this takes so long when it’s really not that difficult at this point. We’ve sold our house, divided anything else, and have a basic plan for the kids. My lawyer quite frankly sucks. I informed her of how disappointed I am with her currently level of support and promptness. Within a couple of hours of sending her that message, I received and updated e-bill from the law firm for owing $0. The ball is currently¬† in her court. I’m ready to switch to someone who is more efficient and effective in the world of divorce.

Overall, I’m fine, but I could be better. Way better. I need some fun in my life. I’m gradually emerging from beneath the rock I’ve been hiding under. It’s been a long hard process, but I’m still swimming forward.
