So, my birthday was January 9. (Two days ago.) I turned 27! I am not sure how I feel about this. I’m getting close to 30. Which I know isn’t that old, but to me, it seems like its old. I have so much I want to accomplish before I’m 30, like having a kid, buying a house, getting a nice car…I don’t see these things happening in THREE years. Not the way my credit is set up lol. And I want to be ready for a kid. I haven’t even talked to my boyfriend about it either, I don’t know when he wants more kids, because he has a two year old daughter right now. And my car…agh! I just have to keep trying.
So far, my new year is going well. I just have so many bills! And my income isn’t matching up lol. So I’m trying to stay afloat. It’s going to take a little bit for tutoring to pick up again, because kids were off for winter break. They are now going back to school, so it’s going to take a little time for parents to realize their kids need help.
I’ve established small daily goals that make everything less overwhelming for me. So far, I’ve been able to keep up but I do get anxious just looking at everything I have to do and pay for and it gets me a little overwhelmed. I have a therapist that I go to, and she’s been helping me with certain things, and we’ve found strategies to cope when I’m anxious. The methods don’t always work 100% of the time, but they do help.
I suffer from major depression and anxiety really bad. But I’m getting better everyday, with medication. Anyways, that’s all for now!
