Weekly Recap 5/12

Happy Mothers Day!!

I hope you all had a great week.  Mine was alright.  The weather is getting better, and that always puts me in a better mood.  I don’t know why people enjoy the cold.  Don’t get me wrong, I like it cold when I sleep, but that’s what AC is for.  I can appreciate cooler days when a hoody is necessary, but below 50 degrees isn’t fun!

I finished one of my two classes! Woohoo!! I got a 98%, so I was happy.  I was very nervous for this class, I hadn’t taken a math class in 8 years.  Three more sessions for my stats class and I have my Bachelors!!…

Happy Cinco De Mayo!!!

I can’t believe it’s May already! This year is going fast.  I hope everyone had a good week.  Any plans for tonight? I sure don’t.  It might just be another relaxing weekend. 

I found out my manager was promoted and his last day will be the middle of May.  If you follow this blog then you probably already know that I am not thrilled about my line of work.  I am hoping to move on once I finish my degree at the end of this month.  My current manager has been great.  He lets me do my own thing, and as long as I am hitting my numbers he leaves me alone.  Most managers tend to micro manage in my field.  If that happens, I fear that I will go crazy.  Let’s hope for the best, and also hope that I can find a new job ASAP. 

Have you ever had a manager that drove you crazy?

Weekly Recap 4/28

Another busy week over! I don’t know about you, but I plan on some R&R this weekend.  I took an exam in Business Calc this past week, and have a mid-term in Statistics this coming week.  School has become quite a burden over the past couple weeks.  I finish at the end of May so I guess it’s ok, but I am ready for it to be over.

The Totally Money Carnival hosted by Thirty Six Months

The Self Directed Investing for Retirement Carnival hosted by Arbor Investment Planner

The Carnival of Financial Camaraderie hosted by My University Money

The Yakezie Carnival hosted by Money Q

Weekly Recap 4/21

This weekly recap is going to be short and to the point.  I feel bad I havent been able to give this site the attention it deserves.  I am in the home stretch of school, and I have a lot of studying to do.  In the next few weeks, I have 2 exams and a final.  I am very excited to finish, but the last weeks are not going to be fun. 

Work has been busy as well.  We have 6 new people who recently started.  Things tend to run slower when you need to do your job and teach, but that’s ok. 

I am hoping to gather up some guest posts so that the next few weeks aren’t too bare here.  If anyone is interested, I would greatly appreciate you sending me an email with your guest post.  Just click the contact tab up top, and shoot me a message. 

I hope everyone has a great weekend!…

Weekly Recap 4/14

I am happy it’s the weekend.  This week was a bit long.  One of my good friends of over 20 years lost his mom this week.  It was very unexpected, she was only in her late 50’s.  I have the honor of being a pall-bearer at her funeral.  It is going to be a tough day though.  I can only say that it helps knowing she’s in a better place with the Lord. 

I hope everyone has a great week, and I hope I wasnt too much of a Debbie downer.



Here are a few of my favorite posts for the week.
