Since my last post on April 30th, I got yet ANOTHER new job.  My schedule has changed 4 times in a month and a half.  And we’re still attempting to unpack, which is a slow and frustrating process.  I feel like I’m only just starting to get into a groove.  I keep waiting for things to

I finished the first book of my 30’s! I chose Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed because it was the first book in the Almost Fearless book club.  Christine is one of my favorite travel bloggers so I signed up for Goodreads as soon as I heard she

I’ve tried to categorize my goals by type thus far, but these hold outs defy categorization: Thing #13 – Fix My Credit Credit seems to be a hassle for everyone.  You struggle to get it, you struggle to keep it up, and it’s fraught with Catch-22 scenarios.  I did some damage to my credit when
