I decided I wanted to start a bit of a “5 Things Friday” which I know is quite common among the blogging community. I’ll try and make it a regular things but I won’t make any promises =).
It’s been a while since I’ve had the opportunity to sit down and type anything. This past month has just been so busy with getting our daughter ready for Pre-K, doctor/dentist appointments, and the job hunt. Somehow, through all this perceived chaos, I’ve managed to stick to my marathon plan. I’ll write more about that when I’m 1 month out from the race date. Right now I just feel like unloading about other things.
Another personal life update today! Marathon training’s been pretty boring so blogging about each run seems pointless. It’s been going well since I last posted in my halfway post. I can’t believe I have a little over 2 months to go!
As fall approaches so does the pressure to nail down a job. Boy, has that been a doozy.
It’s been a while since I’ve sat down and talked about how job hunting has been going. Things have been quite hectic for me since March. This is all words and there is no running-related talk so feel free to pass on it if you’d like.
When I left the Navy back in August 2014, I wasn’t sure where I was going to go from there. Since my husband was also leaving the service and had more of an idea of what he wanted to do, I took a step back and told him I’d follow him where he ended up job-wise. Since I was seriously struggling with my depression and eating disorder, we both knew I needed to get some stability first then tackle the job scene later. With all this in mind, we agreed that I would stay home for the time being, take care of our daughter, and take time to research job opportunities while I established care with psychiatry out here in MD. I only meant to take a year off then jump back into a job. I even lined to apply for the police academy this past year. However, I had to put that application on hold when I found out I was pregnant with my son. Now we’re past the 1 year mark and I’m facing the job market again. What has pushed me towards entering the working world again so soon after my son’s birth? Education, really.
