Tough Week and it's Only Tuesday
Tuesday, March 25, 2008
This is shaping up to be the kind of week where, if life was fair I would be allowed to stay at home in bed all week. It's my grumpy time of the month to begin with. Then I had to make a hard decision this weekend not to take the Washington state bar exam this summer for financial reasons - namely that I can't afford the close to $5000 it was all going to end up costing me. This was an extra hard decision for me since I already passed the Oregon bar about a year and half ago, but have had no luck finding a job as a lawyer here.
Added on top of that is the fact that things at my current job have been kind of weird this week, since one of my co-workers told me repeatedly for the last two weeks that she was going to quit as soon as my boss came back from vacation. We'll he's back as of Monday, but she seems to have reconsidered.
The one good thing is that I haven't let any of that get me off track. I'm still going to the gym even though I feel tired and low energy. And, I've been staying on track with my food as well (although I did treat myself to chocolate bar on Friday). So, I'm trying to keep in mind that at least I'm getting to test myself and see that the changes that I've made a really here to last.
