Adventure Wednesday: Change is coming

ocean copy

I have built up the courage to lose sight of the shore. I’m letting change into my life.

If you were around for my, In Need of Advice… Life Decision, blog post you know that I had a huge life decision to make. I can tell you it wasn’t an easy one and before writing that post it was months of pros and cons lists, budgeting, conversations with friends and family and soul-searching.  Well after the months of consideration and the advice I received from all of you, friends and family I have decided to make a huge change in my life.

I have decided to go with Life Decision: Option #2 with a little bit of sub-option A & B (See option below)

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Option #2: Quit my job and focus on my education and myself!

Within this option there are two underlying options to go along with it

A: Quit and live off of my student loans and money currently saved up

Pros:

Time to focus solely on my education and myself

Time to find an internship (which is a must in my field of study)

Cons:

Money will be supper tight (will have to cut back on a lot of things)

Will most likely have to take out another loan before my next school financial aid disbursement (however, an alternative to this is I will have time to focus on applying for scholarships FREE money)

B: Quit and live off mu student loans and currently saved money but find a part-time job

Pros:

Having a part-time job will keep me from going board (I can’t handle too much free time) – Also within this part-time job option it could just be my own side work of event planning, social media help or home and office organizational offerings – 3 things I do really well and really enjoy/miss doing and are all can be great work experience for what I want to do while attending law school!

Will have much more time to dedicate to school

Will have time to dedicate to finding/working at an internship

Most likely would not need to take out another student loan

Cons:

Money will be supper tight (will have to cut back on a lot of things)

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————

I gave my two weeks notice to my current job on Friday, it was a very difficult thing to do, but I felt a million times better after doing so. Although, the stress of this job is still weighing on my shoulders through the 15th a few sighs of relief have started to escape me. I am so happy now that I realize soon things will be a little bit more stress free for me.

Things are defiantly going to be a little tough money wise but I have always been good at budgeting when I need to. I will have to work at finding a part-time job to make a little extra cash so that I can have the freedom to still enjoy myself, but for now cutting back on a few extra things wont kill me.

So far I have signed up for a couple of babysitting/nanny sourcing websites http://www.care.com and http://www.sittercity.com, and applied to a handful of part-time jobs off of Craigslist. I know I will land something it will just take time, as I want to make sure I find something that wont ruin the purpose of this change in the first place. Also, my hopes are still up that I could possibly land a paid internship.

This new change is a new adventure. I am nervous for it to come but its an exciting nervousness. I can’t wait to share the experience with all of you and want to thank you all for the support you have given me thus far.

What types of changes are you wanting to make in your life? Have you ever made a change like this that took months of debating? How does change make you feel?

I’d love to hear your experiences, please leave a comment or feel free to email me at sanfranciscoboundprgirl@gmail.com

Have an Adventurous Wednesday

  1. Whoo! Totally doing a happy dance for you right now 🙂 Congrats – that is a huge life change, but I am so proud of you following your heart and am so excited to see where this leads you. 🙂

    I, on the other hand, am still trying to figure out my big life decisions (career, which law school to attend, do I even want to go to law school?!, etc…). Keep me in your thoughts. :/
