The End of February

Whew. It’s been a long time (three months!) since I’ve done a monthly wrap-up post. I finally feel like I’ve accomplished enough in this past month to make writing a monthly wrap-up post necessary! Let’s see how I did:

Books Read: 1

  • Bluebeard by Kurt Vonnegut

I didn’t get to read a lot of books this month, because I was so busy being worried about my thesis and my life was falling apart in general. I am hoping to read five books over the course of March (I’m way behind in my GoodReads challenge for the year, whoops). Even just saying “five books in a month” is painful for me, because I used to be the person that could read 20-30 books a month with absolutely no problems.

Pages Written: 30

I was able to write about 30 pages on my thesis, but the majority of those pages were just revisions from earlier writings. You see, I’m rewriting an old story that I gave up on, and I want to make it the best it can be.

Blog Posts: 10

Counting this blog post, I will have written 10 blog posts for the month of February. In comparison, I wrote 18 blog posts in January. I had more commitments this time around, and wasn’t able to get everything posted that I wanted to. I’m hoping that I can double my post count for March, getting up to 20 posts. Eventually, I want to have my schedule back on track enough that I can do one post a day, as long as I’m hitting my original four scheduled posts a week. (Although that hasn’t happened for a while now.)

Most Exciting Thing: Job Interview!

I had a job interview on Tuesday, February 27th for a full-time position in Birmingham. I am praying that everything works out for this job, because it fits my skill set absolutely perfectly and I have numerous opportunities to advance in the future. I will hear something about this on Sunday afternoon, so please keep me in your prayers/good thoughts/good vibes, because this would be an absolute God-send.

Most Upsetting Thing: Loss of Graduation

As I’ve already stated, I won’t be graduating this semester. Instead, I will be graduating in the Fall 2018 semester. You can read my entire post on this here.

What Next?

Well, March is coming on, and I’m going to have to crack down on making sure I get only high As in my Vonnegut class (I’m currently sitting at a solid B+, and that’s really depressing me; I can’t afford to bust my 4.0 my final semester!). I’m hoping to read more books, get my life back on track, and start a new job.

What are you most proud of accomplishing in February? Do you have any tips for me as I continue my slog through the job slush pile? Let me know in the comments!

And as always, keep reading.

  1. Congrats on the interview!

    Are you keeping a spreadsheet of your job applications? I did last year and it was really helpful as a reference. I’ve been able to share the list of places I applied to with friends that have asked for job hunting advice after me.

      1. I applied 60+ places to find my current job out of college. I needed that spreadsheet, haha.

        What did they bait and switch you with? I had a few of those. The surprise sales position was the best one. I’m pretty sure I thanked them for ending the interview early.
