So you might have noticed my blogs have been a bit quiet/sporadic for the last month or so. I’m finally ready to talk about why.
About a month ago my girlfriend’s employer lost the contract with the site she was assigned to. This means while my gf is still technically employed, she hasn’t been getting any hours, until they find a new site for her.
no hours means a) my gf is home all the time and I’m spending time with her instead of online b) we have been very very broke and trying to find various ways of making ends meet.
Due to not having any income, I made the snap decision to start college this semester. It wasn’t completely out of the blue, it had been on my mind for a while, but I hadn’t told anyone or done any prep.
So, it being AUGUST, i have spent the last month running around back and forth filing paperwork and getting enrolled and ironing out financial aid. The nice thing is that because I haven’t been employed for two years, I am basically getting paid to go to school.
If anyone’s curious I’m going for IT (specifically web media and programming), because its an area I already have some ability in, and I would like to flesh out. My goal is to learn enough to open my own online pet site in the style of neopets, subeta, wajas, etc.
So, I’ll be starting school for the first time in 12 years in about a week. I am pretty nervous about this.
So to recap
- GF has no hours
- GF is at home all the time
- I am super broke
- I have been spending time with GF, looking for money, and getting ready for school
- I’m starting school in a week
- If you want to be on the team to open a pet site in the next two years get in touch 😛
