Um. Helllooo? Do you guys remember me?
I know! I’ve been a bad, bad blogger. It’s been 1.5 months without a post!
Ok. Quick check-in time. Where the heck have I been? Well… I’ll tell you. I feel like I’ve been in orbit.
ONE. I went on an international trip. YES!
One continent. Three countries. Five cities. It was amazing! Wonderful! Worth. every. damn. penny!!! ::Screams::
Gah! I really didn’t want to leave. If I didn’t have to work, I would just travel full-time. If I didn’t have debt, I’d at least travel more often.
I didn’t log how much I spent. I still have a couple of grand or so in my opportunity fund, even after paying off all my credit card debt, so I didn’t go totally crazy with the spending, but travel is not cheap. I’m overdue to revisit my budget and spending.
TWO. I’ve been working A LOT.
Before my trip I had a ton of work to get done ahead of time before I left. Even so, I still had to off-load some of it onto colleagues, which I don’t like doing, but I had no choice. When I got back I had a ton of work to start and catch-up on. Omg! The jet lag combined with going back to the grind was NOT fun. I started working again the day after I landed back in the States.
THREE. I’ve been under a lot of stress. I’ve also been up to other things, which I’ll write about in my next post.
More on the way!
Thanks, guys, for all the positive comments after my last post. I’m so happy to be half done with my student loan debt and into the low 50’s now.
Anyone else have too much to do and not enough time?
