Now that I’m officially single it is time to get on with my life. Between the divorce and the comments on my last post I’ve taken a lot of lumps in the past few days. I’m not going to let that get me down though, and I am moving forward. I don’t have a complete plan yet because I’m not sure what all I want to do.
The first thing I’m going to do is get a job. My preference is to get a job as an attorney. Despite what has been said in the comments it is not easy to get a job in the legal field and I certainly haven’t turned down a legal job.
I have applied several places and I had one interview that I thought went well, but I haven’t heard from them yet. I’ll continue to search for legal work, but if I don’t have a job by the end of the month I’ll take a non-legal job.
I’m also moving to Kansas City. There aren’t many job opportunities where I’m currently living. All of the companies I’ve applied to have been in Kansas City. Even if I’m not able to get a legal job right away, I still think I’ll have a much better chance of getting one in KC. A change of scenery will be nice too.
One other thing I want to do is to increase my self-employment income. Although I don’t have a job, I was making thousands in self-employment income just a few months ago. If I can get back to that level and have job income as well I should be able to pay off my van loan quickly and replenish my savings. After that is done I could start on my student loans.
There isn’t much of a plan yet. Once I have moved and gotten a job I’ll work on setting goals and a plan to achieve them.
