Baby Fever


Me @ work

Me @ work

Ever since I stopped working as a pre-school teacher, my “baby fever” seems to have grown exponentially. Almost every day at my new job, which has nothing to do with childhood education, I think about the kids I used to work with and how much fun we had together. I imagine how much fun my own future child(ren) and I will have. My goal right now is to save up some money, purchase my own home, and run a small pre-school group 3-4 days a week. (PS. Constantly reading ‘mommy blogs’ doesn’t help my situation either.)

This customer service job I am doing is so soul crushing sometimes I can’t even fathom having to get up the next day and do it all over again. It’s not the customers that make it this way, but mostly the fact that I feel my training was rushed and I didn’t retain all the information that I should have. I don’t feel equipped to properly help people with certain issues. Some of the tasks I have learned quickly and have no issue with, but some things are very complicated and I feel like I’m constantly having to ask for help. The fact that I get to work from home is the only thing keeping me from leaving the job at this point. Oh well. It’s all a means to an end, right?

Working at home


I am officially working from home today. It feels great to say that!

I finally got my first “real” writing gig with a company, and am starting to write some articles for them about different topics. Today’s articles are mostly real estate related stuff. It’s so exciting to know that I will actually be getting paid to do something I enjoy.

I just finished writing my first article for this company a few minutes ago, and have four more to go for today. It’s actually really fun doing the research and learning about topics I don’t often think about (such as real estate, LoL).

My dream, which has changed a million times over the last few years, is now to be able to make an income working primarily from home, so when I do have a baby in the future (which I plan on soon!) I will be able to stay home with them and still provide for them without completely relying on my boyfriend, Jay. He is amazing and works so hard. I would hate for him to feel like all the money stuff is on his shoulders alone.

I really hope this writing thing works out and becomes something I can rely on and enjoy for the rest of my life.

What do you do for work? Do you love it, or hate it, or neither? What would you do if you could choose any job in the world and make tons of money doing it? Let me know in the comments. 🙂
