Goodbye Struggle Street

After becoming unemployed shortly before Christmas, my partner has started his first day at a new job. He’ll be fairly paid and we’ll be much better off than before.

I am so incredibly thankful, because the fear of losing things that we’d worked so hard for like our house and car, at the tender age of 22, was a bit too much for the both of us.

Thanks to my keen budgeting skills, we scraped through and didn’t fall behind on any payments. Now we’ll have more spending money for our trip to France in October.

After October I’ll assess my employment and make the jump back over to reception from sales. I’m not sure if this is the case for anyone else, but sales has changed so much in the past 18 months. I now have a script I need to follow and my targets have jumped 150%, doesn’t make for a lot of fun on the job. We’ll cross that job-hopping bridge when we get to it in October.

To the future! I’m excited.
