Life & Me, Motivation

Money’s tight…

So, we’ve moved into our own place and we love it. I love having my own place. Making it my own to reflect mine and EJ’s style’s and personalities. But, I’m broke now. This is something that’s been bugging me for a little while. So, this week, I’ve done a lot of thinking and tried my hardest to figure out the best course of action…I emailed several photographers in the area whose photography I really like. I’ve heard from 3 of them so far. 1 told me to email them in the spring when business picks up, 1 asked for some information on me and the last asked if I wanted a paid/intern gig. I told her obviously it would be nice to be paid but I was very anxious and eager to learn how to use my camera completely.

I’ve also tossed around the idea of finding a job for weeknights and some weekends.

I did make the decision to quit weight watchers. That’s an extra $40 a month we can use to put towards bills. Besides, I know spark people will help if I can just get myself to focus!

I’m also using my tax refund to pay off one of the credit cards and I believe EJ is doing the same.

If I can get better with my photography and get a couple photo jobs a month, and get my own computer I can contribute a little more towards our bills.

I’m so lucky to have such a wonderful, loving husband. He doesn’t want to see me work a crappy part time job on weeknights and weekends if I won’t enjoy it. ❤

I’m going to keep plugging away trying to find a photographer who needs some help and is willing to teach me on the side and try to keep getting my own photo jobs. This weekend I’m going to hang up fliers, start exercising daily again.

I need some words of encouragement.
