First Day Of Complete Freedom!

It feels so good to have finally quit the job I was not happy with.  No more talking about resigning or dreaming about extending my summer vacation another month (yes, teacher training would've began August 4th for me).  I am completely free!  I also began my career soul-searching today by reading chapters 1 and 2 of The Pathfinder: How to Choose or Change Your Career for a Lifetime of Satisfaction and Success by Nichola Lore.  I am loving the book so far and am excited to see what passion/interest I will be turning into my career.


Now, I am not completely unemployed or broke...I teach Booty Barre multiple times a week and two preschool dance classes.  I enjoy teach fitness classes, so I am happy to say I will either be teaching more Booty Barre classes come this fall or adding new certifications to my name!  I am so pumped to broaden my fitness class offerings!  I will be able to keep stress away while attending classes (for idk what yet) by making money doing something I absolutely love!

Anyway, the best part of Thursday night is planning my weekend in Cleveland!  I love summers in Cleveland because there is always something fascinating to do.  I am not sure what I am doing yet, but I have a pretty good list of things I am interested in and think you may be interested in as well.
