Good news comes in threes and I have three very exciting things to share. First I left my job and will be starting a new job that is walking distance from my apartment – goodbye three-hour commute. I bought a condo in downtown Chicago that I cannot wait to start making my own. Finally, I scored a $38 roundtrip flight to Florida. Needless to say, it has been an overwhelming, but productive week.
With all of this change, I’m realizing how easy it is to take on way too much at once. I’ll be starting my new job in ten days and before then I’ll be spending three days in Florida and am trying to have my new apartment pulled together. To be honest, I’m not sure I’ll be able to get the place together so fast, but I’m going to try. This is a very typical Sarah situation I’ve gotten myself in.
Over the next few days, I’ll be sharing all about deciding to change jobs, my place, the purchase decision, and how it is even a remote possibility to try to get this apartment ready in ten days.
