After over 4 months of being unemployed, I am finally working again and it feels great!
Sure, sitting on my butt doing nothing and having no schedule was great for the first few weeks, heck maybe even a month. But soon it became awful.
I work from home now, so I still sit on my butt far more than I would like, but at least I am keeping busy and bringing in some money (read: travel funds).
This little blog of mine has opened up some amazing doors, including this job. One of my lovely readers (and now friend), J., contacted me when I first moved to Bulgaria offering her support and some advice. J. is an expat from South Africa married to a Bulgarian (they have an adorable little girl), living in Bulgaria. It never ceases to amaze me when I meet someone in a situation like mine. I never imagined there would be so many of us!
Anywho, J’s husband owns his own company and needed some extra help, so I now have a freelance writing job of sorts.
I love writing and this job has been a lot of fun so far. Sure, it’s a little tedious at times, but overall I am enjoying myself immensely and am very thankful to be working again.
I am still heading to Alaska in May, but I plan on writing as much as I can while I am there. Perhaps even making enough to book the cruises I have my eye on!
The best thing to come from all of this? Vince and I met some awesome new friends whom we plan on seeing a lot more of. Nothing beats that!
Life is good.
