Sigh. The good news is that I was off for four days straight! I woke up at 10:19 AM on Saturday!! OMG. That was not planned. What if I had a meeting with a client? I’m kind of working with two clients. I’m definitely working with C. She’s paying me weekly. I’m still waiting on the Pinterest stuff. I’ve been in training. I have to ask about payment during our meeting tomorrow.
I think I’m getting too comfortable and spending too much again. Online content/courses are my things. Since I know marketing, those kinds of classes don’t appeal to me anymore. Now it’s business taxes and self-help. A life coach certification? How is that going to advance my career? It won’t. But it could personally help me. And it’s only $18 a month. I can cancel at any time.
I took most of today off, which was great. I’m probably going to work a little more after posting this because I don’t want to get behind. My Pinterest job starts on April 27th, so I’m trying to enjoy any free time I have now. If this goes well, I will be working all the time. I shouldn’t have told them I was available for 30 hours a week. ROFL. But at that time I wasn’t working with C.
I registered my business name for $10. I have an EIN from the IRS. Now I’m just waiting to register the actual business. I can’t get a business checking account, so I’m just doing things semi-manually with Quickbooks.
I did not get my $1200. The IRS sent it to my old, CLOSED bank account. I should be receiving a letter soon to tell me what to do. I will probably have to get a paper check. That will take a while to come because of the IRS, plus Trump must sign the check.
I took my dog to the park on Friday morning. It was as empty as it usually is on a weekday morning. One person did get closer than 6 feet to me. Ugh. I had my mask on the whole time, even though I was having trouble breathing 30 minutes in.
This week I…
Music of the week: Demi Lovato, Lindsay Lohan, Fiona Apple, Stacie Orrico, Jessica Simpson, Ariana Grande, Ashlee Simpson, Selena Gomez
TV of the week: The Affair, Survivor
I haven’t watched the news in about 5 weeks. It has helped me sooo much. I was a news junkie. I had cable news muted 24/7. Now I can’t do that.
Podcasts of the week: Dateline, Pod Save America, So You Wanna Be a Witch, The Forgotten West Memphis 3
Books of the week:
I finished Open Book: A Memoir by Jessica Simpson. Five stars. It is as great as everyone says. I don’t usually read celebrity memoirs because I know they are leaving a ton out, so what’s the point? But Jessica is pretty open.
- Freeing Yourself from Anxiety: 4 Simple Steps to Overcome Worry and Create the Life You Want by Dr. Tamar Chansky
Weekend Plans: Well, today is Sunday. So I’ll leave this blank.
Thanks for reading! Have a great week. 🙂
