Back when I started this blog I was super excited to get back into blogging and had written out so many plans for my site. However, life happens and I got a little sidetracked and I am just now getting back into the flow of things. I promise I haven’t neglected it though! So you’re probably asking where I’ve been, or maybe you’re not, but I’m going to tell you anyways.
My son, Michael, has been sick on and off for almost a month. He had pneumonia at the beginning of December so that was rough. I didn’t get to take him to see Santa until Christmas Eve because I wanted to make sure he was a lot better before taking him around lots of people where he could potentially get sick again. While I was excited to see his reaction to Santa this year, our visit was cut short by someone that thought they needed to bring gun violence into the mall during the Holidays. That’s a whole other blog post that I’m planning to write at some point, but we were safe and that’s all that matters.
We started January off with a minor cold, then a horrible rash that turned out to be the hives, and now recovering from an ear infection that was so bad the doctor was surprised his ear drum hadn’t ruptured. Needless to say, the past month has been spent trying to get my sons health back up to par. He’s finally starting to feel better which makes for a happy mama.
Recently I had a huge career change that I am super excited about. Bartending is something I am very passionate about, but not something I can see myself doing for the rest of my life. When I started working at Carrburritos I was thrilled that I was finally getting to bartend full-time and absolutely loved every minute of it. I had planned on staying for a good while, but like I said at the beginning of this post, life happens.
Back in December I started browsing around for a part-time writing job that I could do from home to get a little extra cash for Christmas. Let’s face it, the price of Christmas gifts can add up, especially when you have a toddler to shop for. While I was looking for a quick writing job I discovered my dream job and debated applying to it for a good 10 minutes. I finally caved and applied thinking I would not hear back because I have yet to complete my college degree.
Nowadays it is almost impossible to start your career without a degree. I had always planned on going back to school when I moved home, but having a child changes a lot of plans you have in life. Anyways, I heard back from the employer, completed a quick project they asked me to do, interviewed and signed the acceptance letter without looking back.
My first day was January 4th as the Content Marketing Assistant at Optimized Assets and I have been in love with my job ever since. I am doing what I am most passionate about: social media. Obviously being a content marketer there are other things that go into the job, but I absolutely love it and am looking forward to this new adventure. Everyone at the company I work for is absolutely wonderful and that makes it all the better.
Well there you have it guys, the reason I have been so M.I.A. on my blog lately. I promise I am back to my regular blogging routine though. I have some major plans for my blog this coming year, so stay tuned and join in on the adventure with me.
