I absolutely love celebrating things (that is, things that aren’t Christmas or my birthday), and today there is much to celebrate!
Not only is this my one year quit-o-versary (AKA a year since I quit my job), but it also marks 3 years since my divorce was final and I became free to live a better life on my own terms. Great things seem to happen to me on December 14, and I’m assuming this year will be no exception.
I’ve spent all week reminiscing about my first year as a freelancer, so I won’t repeat myself. The important things you should know are:
- I made it a whole year!!!!
- I love my job.
- I am the happiest I’ve been in my adult life.
- Oh, and there’s that part where So Over This has a new look! (if you’re reading this via RSS or email, you should come check it out)
Woohoo someone bring me a cake!!!!!!!!!
This is kind of goofy, but I want to share a song that has been very motivating to me throughout the past year. It came on the radio in my car when I left my former job for the last time and I cried like an idiot (tears of joy, not sadness). While I’m far from the kind of fame and fortune described in the song, the sentiment is exactly what I feel when I think about this journey.
Even if you’re not a big hip hop fan, check out the lyrics – they’re awesome (and sorry for the huge video – WordPress is being difficult):
Speaking of Money (Though Maybe Not Young Money)
I decided to do something fun for my quit-o-versary, so I’m giving away $100! (Yeah, I know, it’s not the most exciting prize. But it’s still money.)
The giveaway is open to anyone with a valid PayPal account and will be open until the 21st at midnight. When it ends, a winner will be chosen randomly. No fake entries – that’s never any fun! Just use the widget below to enter for a little extra cash!
