I was so excited. I was going to take an in-person astrology class. I’m taking an online written college like astrology course, but that course is intermediate. I get most of it, but I got stuck on something and blah, blah, blah. I’m still going to finish the online course. Anyway, I really wanted to do the local course, but then the thing with the landlord happened. Did I really want to spend $135 on a much needed (lol) astrology course? More importantly, did I want to spend 4 Thursday nights in class? Not really. I have to work the next day. Class is from 7-9 PM.
I found two Udemy courses I really like. The cost of both classes combined was under $25. I consider that a win. I’m sort of bummed about not taking the local astrology course, but if I don’t get something with the Udemy courses, I can take the local course IF they offer it again. I hope people show up and show interest.
Astrology is hard, but I love it. But I like that I have the two Udemy courses. I can watch them over, and over, and over.
I’m worried about my dog (see entries below). I can’t get in touch with the vet as of right now. I don’t think I need to speak to a vet. I just need someone, anyone to tell the lab to do the test. Why do I need a vet for that? If I were to call my doctor’s office, they would let me speak to a nurse. UGH. I feel very reversed Queen of Swords which means I feel frustrated because the receptionist probably didn’t understand that I didn’t need to speak to a vet?? Why did she make that assumption about a vet? I’m so confused.
I finally got in touch with a vet tech. Geez. I emailed them. No response. Spoke with and left a message with a person. No answer. They only hold urine for a few days. The test must be done ASAP. Thank god they finally got that I didn’t need to speak to a vet. All that matters is that my dog is going to be okay. I really hope he isn’t going through kidney failure. 😦
About my ex-landlord, he wants me to pay $400 a month. Okay, fine. Well, that does mess up my debt repayment plan. I won’t get to pay 25% of my debt off this year. One goal ended before it started. Oh, another issue is that he didn’t say how long I have to pay the $400 for. LOL. Um, forever? He said he has to get new carpet (carpet looked fine to me) and of course get the water from under the house. I don’t know if there is anything else. So according to him, that is at least $2500. He might not know the total cost yet because they probably haven’t started the work yet.
So now my goals for quarter one are learning tarot by heart and being an astrology expert. I’m sort of joking about the astrology thing because no one can become an expert in that in just one quarter, but I’m going to try to learn as much as possible. It’s easy to have goals for learning tarot without books/resources, but I don’t even know where to start with astrology. How do I break it down?
I would also like to lose weight, pay more debt off, don’t add to debt and blah, blah, blah. But tarot and astrology are the main goals since they are business related. Speaking of business, I’m burned out. I‘m thinking of taking a brief (a week or two) break from social media and not promoting anything. I can do that because I can somewhat easily schedule posts in advance.
I might do it the last part of January. On January 15th, my newsletter/eBook comes out so, after that, I’m resting. Yeah, I think I will take a week off from Instagram. That is my main thing. I post to Facebook and Twitter 2-3 times a week. I post to Instagram almost daily.
I want time to study online business building (plus tarot and astrology), and I need time to just clear my mind. Sounds like a plan. No major online work for the last two weeks of January. Woohoo!
This week I…
Music of the week (my top 8 most listened to): Ariana Grande, Mariah Carey, Lauren Daigle, Tori Kelly, Alessia Cara, Aretha Franklin, Missy Higgins, Maggie Rogers
TV of the week: basketball, Survivor, The Haunting of Hill House
I think I’m almost done with The Haunting of Hill House. Good concept, but so far I don’t get why people LOVE it so much. It’s a decent show, but not mindblowing.
Movie of the week: None
Podcasts of the week: Hardball with Chris Matthews, Online Marketing Made Easy, Pod Save America, Pursuit With Purpose, So You Wanna Be a Witch, The Lowe Post, True Crime Garage,
Books of the week: Now reading:
- White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism by Robin DiAngelo – Every person should read this book. Not just white people. Robin DiAngelo is a white woman trying to speak to other white people. It is mostly about black and white relations. I kind of hate to say this, but it’s TRUE. (what a concept!) Black people are considered the least desirable people – not in a sexual way. But in a normal, everyday way. So I’m glad she focused on black and white relations. I have about 40 pages to go before I’m done. I think only white progressives will read this book. Most conservatives whites, won’t even acknowledge that racism exists.
- Racing to The Finish: My Story by Dale Earnhardt Jr – I love Dale. Not sure I’m going to love the book. I just checked it out from the library because I sort of admire him for being different in NASCAR.
Plans for the Weekend: I’m working overtime on Saturday. Then I’m FREE! So far. I haven’t had much free time lately. I have a tarot reading to do. I would like to finish that on Saturday. I’m going to probably study astrology and plan more of quarter one. I’m going to try to do at least 6 tarotscopes this weekend. Eventually my tarotscopes will have more advanced astrology and they will be so good. 🙂 Just wait for about 3 months. ha.
I hope the government doesn’t shut down. I’m probably going to listen to a few news podcasts tonight. I haven’t been following the news that much due to my new living situation. Long story. Have a great weekend! Thanks for reading. 🙂
