Happy New Year, since this is my first post of 2017.
It’s not going too bad, really. Actually I got a raise. Yup. All of my complaining finally paid off – 14 months it took (well really, 10 years of my life), but better late than never. I got a pay grade increase and a 10% raise. I haven’t seen how much money that will be on my paycheck yet though. It will cause my insurance to go up (our health care premiums is based on your salary) so I really don’t know how much money I’ll really be seeing.
My other news is that my Disney related thing did come true, and I got it. I am in training to be a Disney travel planner! I am taking online classes in that to get my new business up and running. I will also be using my online computer class training to build a new website for that, so I can keep this as a personal blog and my Disney/travel stuff on another blog. I also want to learn to book other travel, since I like Royal Caribbean and other non-Disney destinations as well. It’ll be up to me to get clients, but I hope the new website helps out in that.
So far I’ve got 3 online classes going on right now – Computer, Disney, and a work-related one that I do on the clock at work. I have no time in the evenings when I get home, but I’m okay with that since it’s short term. My training for the 5k and 10k I’m doing in a few months is nonexistent. I really have to make time to do a few miles on the treadmill every Sunday at least.
Oh! And even more exciting news – I got tickets to see U2! I’ve got a Florida trip in April, and a U2 concert in June. I love having things to look forward to.
