Ok, so 2008 blew. Hardcore. Nothing seemed to go right and I kept getting sick because I'm stressed out. My job at the bakery didn't work out, so now I'm searching for a new job in a crappy economy. My student loans are all late because we're still broke despite our efforts to not be. Although most of our regular bills are getting paid on time now, so I guess that's a step in the right direction. My plan when I first started school was to consolidate all my loans once I graduated, but thanks to the horrendous state of our country, no one is consolidating loans and now I'm screwed. Now I have to go through the deferment process which is a big pain in the ass.
But it's a new year, and every day is a new chance, right? LOL
But, for real, let's hope it's a good one... for all of us. I know a lot of people who really had shitty 2008's, and I hope for all of our sanity's sake that things get better for everyone. I'm in need of a serious morale boost... my past way of dealing with things (ignoring them so I don't have to think about it and get stressed out) doesn't seem to be working. So, now I've come to my "resolutions" for the new year:
1. I will take better care of myself mentally and physically.
2. I will deal with my financial issues one day at a time, and just try to remember that I'm doing the best I can and I can't do anything more than that.
3. I will try to be a better wife, daughter, sister, and friend to everyone that I love. I think you all know who you are.
4. I will live my life according to MY wishes, and be content with the fact that I have a wonderful husband that loves me, a wonderful family that supports me, wonderful friends who stand by me, and the ability to live my life according to what I want. I guess that's the definition of freedom...
So, that's it. I really hope all of us have a better year. I think we all deserve one!
Love you all!
