ready for change

My fiance and I finally got our own apartment. I just so happens to be next door of where we are living now. Our neighbor jumped his lease and took off. It's exciting but also stressful. It just so happens that I need a little extra money to make sure I meet all my new bills. I'm trying with all my heart to find some online work. Something I can do while I am at my full-time job. It's not easy. I'm looking at freelance writing but a lot of the sites want the person to have a Bachelors or a PhD. Content writing might be the way. Maybe I can create some original articles.

My real job is going alright. It's January so traffic through Avis is a steady trickle. It's a blessing after all the craziness of the holidays. Still, I am looking at other jobs to replace this one. I just can't do second shift anymore. My brain is fried and I'm sleeping like shit. Plus, I'm constantly getting complaints which is due to my lack of training. It's complete bullshit but whatever. One day I will find a 9-5 job w/ solid training and a salary. At least, I hope so. Everyday I'm scouring the employment sites like Indeed, Craigslist, and the Virginia Employment Commission. I am dedicated to getting out of this crap job. It's just not worth it for the amount I get paid.

My fiance and I are doing great. I think we've finally found a rhythm. We haven't fought in months. Our crazy pug, Ichigo, is constantly driving me nuts w/ his excessive chewing and barking. He is probably my only source of stress at home. It might be too late to do anything about it though. I mean, he just turned 3 years old. Experts say train them early. At the time, I was too busy w/ school and work to devote any energy to training him. My fiance could have tried though. Maybe I should just learn to let it go.

I'm going to go talk to Dale. I need to walk around. My feet are freezing even though I have the space heater on. Laters!
