Today was my first day at a new job. Don’t misunderstand, I’m still working very hard to create and maintain my own company, Très Sweet Designs, but in this current stage of my life, that particular endeavor isn’t covering our expenses. Not only are we trying to cover our current expenses, but we’re also trying to get out of student loan debt (before graduation day) and start saving for that “dream life”. So, today was my first day at a new job…
That’s right, I am currently employed by the world’s largest private employer, Wal-Mart. And you know what? I had a lot of fun today. I won’t go into the specifics, but I think that it could turn out to be a great and (dare I predict) fun experience.
In honor of this new stage, the husband and I have coined a new verb: dwitting. It’s fun to say and it makes sense so, why the heck not? “Doing what it takes” is extremely important to me. I have this wonderful (but not unreachable) idea of our future life and I’m willing to sacrifice my extra time and energy to help get us there. We’ve got big plans for the future and it’s going to be so worth it when that time comes.
*I’ll be adding more “dwitting” posts to the blog to chronicle our progress, so stay tuned.
