My Journey

Yikes! My last blog post on here was back in early March! Ermergerd! Life has just been crazy. I started looking for a job to take the place of Food Lion because they weren't giving me many hours and I'm trying to put all of my jobs in the Raleigh area. I eventually did find and accept a job... at a Which Wich sandwich shop. I've been working there for about 3-4 weeks now. I'm honestly not sure I like it. I mean, I love getting a free sandwich every shift because they're awesome! But I've never worked in food service before, and while some days there are terrific, the past few have definitely made me think twice about keeping my options open.

Needless to say, I've slipped. A lot. Like a lot a lot. Like, I haven't stepped foot on a scale recently because I'm pretty sure that I'm back to my original weight from two years ago when I started my lifestyle change. It's been pretty nutzo. However, in the past week or so I've been going through this weird life evaluation phase. I've been spending a lot of time in Raleigh because I'll have hours between shifts and it's not worth the gas to drive 30 minutes back home just to drive 30 minutes back to Raleigh. So I'll bring my laptop and go to the mall and watch a movie or something on there. Once I get my finances more in order I'm going to start gym shopping in the Raleigh area for a cheap gym (I've heard Planet Fitness has a $10-15 monthly membership?) so that I can start going to the gym during my breaks between shifts. Because honestly, that's been part of the problem. Most days I'm in Raleigh all day so I'm not home to workout, and then when I get home or days when I'm home in general I'm trying to catch up on other work or, you know, rest.

So hopefully that will happen soon. But like I said I've been going through a weird life evaluation phase. Here I am fresh-faced out of college with two bachelors degrees.... close to $60,000 in college debt and working about three part time jobs and living at home. ... Honestly, this isn't where I thought I would be at 26 years old. But I still keep telling myself that I work the job at Which Wich to be able to help me work my theatre jobs at the call center for NC Theatre and as Volunteer Coordinator plus any other theatre gigs I can get my hands on. Sometimes you have to work crappy jobs to fund your passion.

IDK things are just weird right now. But I'm trying to make strides in fixing my life. I started using virtual wallet that my bank offers because it offers free savings accounts so that I can start squirreling money away. I'm working on getting my student loans under control as best I can. Like I said, I'm going to start looking for a gym so I can still get workouts in between work shifts on days when I'm in Raleigh all day.... it's little tiny baby steps.... but steps forward nonetheless. If anyone knows of any gyms that have cheap memberships that they would like to suggest, please do so. I'd love all the input I can get. I've never joined a gym before.

Anyway I do have an audition later today so I need to brush up on my monologues for that, then get ready to head out for that and my 3 hour Which Wich shift that's after the audition. Hopefully you all will be seeing me on here regularly again. I've missed coming here. And hopefully I can whip my butt back into shape (literally... the thing is huge again!)

Later days.

It's good to hear from you Carry! I hope you find yourself a great gym because that's a perfect way for you to use your "between shifts" time!
