So what’s going on with me? What’s new in the Mickey world? Well, a ton of stuff. I’m starting school on the 21st, so that’s exciting. I’m also going to be tutoring as well. Idk how that’s going to go. I hope it’s an excellent experience. But it’s cool, by tutoring four hours a week I’m getting half my tuition paid for this semester! So that’s a huge blessing for me since I’m paying for my college out of pocket.
Church has been going great. I’ve been feeling more connected than ever, and I’ve begun to feel God moving more in me the past several weeks more than I have in a long while. Worship at church has been more emotional for me lately too tbh. I get so into it I want to pour it all out, and I have a lot to get off my chest, lol. Kinda wish worship lasted longer. We finally started small groups again. My last one went great, I thought. Probably my best one yet. I’m just really beginning to feel God moving, and it’s incredible.
I’ve been helping my church design their website, so I’m trying to get that finished up. I’m hoping it gets finished soon. (Preferably before I start this semester.)
I might have a side job opportunity coming up in September. I hope that it works out because it’d help to bring in some extra cash. I’d be helping my Papa rewire his whole house, which is a job and a half, but it’d be fun, and I’d get paid. It doesn’t get better than that!
My work is going good — nothing too exciting there. I am just working away, lol.
Oh, I almost forgot! This is the first semester I will be a full-time student! In case ya’ll don’t know, I’m only able to take as many college classes as I can afford. So for the past two years, I’ve only been able to take up to three classes a semester. But thanks to the tutoring and the scholarship I won at SkillsUSA I was able to go full-time this semester…for free!!! I’m so excited. The only downside is not only am I going to be a full-time student, but I’m also going to be working a full-time job as well. While also being a youth leader at my church and doing the tutoring at the college. So my week is going to be hectic…agian, lol. I’m going to try hard to keep up with this blog, but I’ve been contemplating how well that’s going to go. On the bright side, though, I should be able to graduate by the end of the summer semester next year!!
I’ve also had a ton of thoughts in my head as well that would take to long to share. But one of them I can share is about my finances. The men’s bible study we have at our church has been going over personal finance recently, and it’s been awesome to discuss some of the things. We’ve been talking about budgets, retirement, 401K, getting out of debt, how to retire at age 40, how to become a millionaire, mutual funds, stocks, etc. It’s been fascinating and has gotten me thinking. I’m trying to be stricter on my budge, which is hard to do when it keeps fluctuating, lol. But I’m hoping to get it tightened up here soon. But with me getting close to finishing up college, I’ve been thinking about my career and what direction I want to take. I have so many options; it’s hard to choose — not only career-wise, but financially, and also trying to figure out my goals. So I’ve been slowly building a 10-year plan of what my goals are — both financially and career-wise.
If ya’ll want to hear what my goals and dreams are about that leave a comment!! If you enjoyed reading about what’s been going on with my life, leave a like! Till next time. Peace and God Bless!!!
