Today I restarted taking note of my Tarot Daily Draw, and got both the Queen and Page of Wands. Quite fitting considering some recent developments.
For starters- I GOT A JOB!!
Yes, your girl is now gainfully employed- surprisingly full-time, and in retail, no less! But it's for a fabric store I visit frequently for all of my sewing and costuming needs, so it was a natural fit. Plus I'm being paid more there than I ever was back when I was a retail store manager at a place that clearly saw me as expendable, and I never have to worry about working overtime, because everyone's outta there at 5:30 without fail. It means that I have my evenings free to do what I want!
There are of course some minor downsides- I'm not a morning person and I do have to wake up early to get there on time, and now that I'm not home the amount of quality time I'm able to spend with my husband had dropped significantly. But we both understand that these are things that have to happen to ensure that we're able to properly build our lives together.
Besides, you know you're officially an adult when talking about budgets and paying off debt doesn't scare you but instead is a source of great inspiration!
Now of course since this is a full-time job, it means certain activities of mine do have to be scaled down in order to ensure I don't overwork myself [another bad habit of mine], and that anything I do put time into, I can do it with the amount of dedication that each thing deserves. My performing gigs, my acting- and again, my readings.
Mostly this will change the way I handle the in-person offerings and how I schedule how my PDF readings will be done. Half the week at any given time is a write-off due to rehearsals, so that leaves me with precious time. But this new-bridled enthusiasm for life is enough to keep me laser-focused on what I want to do, and how I need to achieve that.
So for right now, The DarkLake Special [my hour and a half, in-depth personal reading] and any astrology offerings I do will only be booked on Sundays- and to ensure I don't exhaust my only 'real' off day I'll only be doing a few of those at a time. I'll be creating a way for people to book simple appointment slots to facilitate this.
If anything else changes, I'll be sure to update you all accordingly here!
