It has actually been quite an interesting week for me. On the whole, I’ve been in a pretty bad mood this year, for obvious reasons. This past week though, well things actually seemed like they might have been in my favour. For that, I am thankful.
I had my first court date on Wednesday. The Justice did not grant an extension, which means we will be going ahead as planned. I had friends come to support me for the occasion, which I am eternally grateful for. I’m looking forward to having this all done and over with. While a court will only get me through the first hurdle, we’re still making progress. Progress is key.
I also got approved for the medium.com partner program, which means that if I submit blog posts on that website as a part of the partner program, they will be eligible to earn money. It actually took me about 2.5 weeks to meet the necessary requirements but I’m just lazy so I didn’t submit my information for the program until this week. I will probably take to Medium to share marketing/work-related content, as I’ve noticed there are a lot of people on that platform offering HORRIBLE advice. I’m not saying that I’m perfect at marketing, but I did spend 2.7 million dollars last month on marketing-related tasks, so I do know a little bit about what I’m doing – otherwise why would they give me that much money to use?
This week also saw the first shipment of my stuff headed for my new city. No, I am not moving yet. I’m starting the process, though. I have some really incredible friends who are helping me move in an effort to make it as low-cost as possible for me. As I’m sure many of you know, moving is not cheap. So my friends are keeping my stuff at their place, collecting little by little, week over week, until I do move in which case I’ll hopefully just have to take it from their house to my new place. I will share where I am moving and when I am moving closer to the date of moving. Spoiler though, I am very much looking forward to a new adventure.
The past seven days have been good. Last Saturday I was on the road. This Saturday I am at home and preparing for a new life in a new city. I survived my first court appearance and, dare I say, things might be looking up? I don’t want to get too hopeful, because I need to be realistic about things. But, let’s just say there was a time or two this past week when I smiled and it wasn’t forced.
