Hello Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend. I did my usual…work, so nothing exciting to report back. Today I had off so I decided to made a trip to TJ Maxx. I love TJ Maxx, especially the one near my house, it's huge and has a homegoods store within it. I don't get there very often anymore with my husband being laid off but I told him, once he finds work, or I find full time, I'm spending the whole day there. It's a dangerous for my pocketbook. Especially the Homegoods section.
I love kitchen stuff, and home decorating stuff. <3 I wish I didn't live in such a limited space or limited budget because I could have bought just about everything. One day I will own my own home and it will be furnished and stocked mainly with things I find there. One day…
When I was 18 or 19, I forget exactly, I went for an interview at their corporate office a few towns away from where I live. It was for a data entry position, I didn't get the job, I didn't expect to as I was inexperienced at interviewing and frankly, I just suck at talking to people face to face. Ugh, I'm getting better with age though, lol. I still have plenty of awkward moments. Oh well!
I've made some changes in the past week. One major thing is, I applied to go back to school. This is something that I've been struggling for so long. I've always went for things that everyone else wanted me to go for or for things that were "popular" or "trendy". It's never been for what I've wanted , so I am going for Liberal Arts at one of the local community colleges. I realize that it isn't the "practical" thing to do but I don't care. It's what I want to do. I don't want to do computers, or healthcare. I've tried them. They are not for me. I've gone to school on and off since I graduated high school 10 years ago and feel like I've never finished because I always did what everyone else wanted me to do and it never felt right. This feels right, and if I get nothing more out of it than personal growth, I will be okay with that because it's what I want.
I love cooking and creative but those are my hobbies. The more I think about it when it comes to an actual career, I would love to do something in publishing or editing or writing. I love writing and reading too but it's different than my hobbies. Know what I mean? This is something I've wanted way before I thought about going to culinary school or graphic design…I know, I'm really confusing..lol. I honestly have no idea where to start because I don't know anything other than retail but going to school seems to be a step in the right direction. It may be 10 years too late but, hey, it's better late than never right?
