Nearly five weeks into my real estate coursework and I am about to complete my first course. And now that I am on the verge of completing my first, 45-hour class, I can say, based on experience, that the three required courses of study in California are no joke (Thank goodness I chose the fabulous online format that I did – Real Estate Express has been easy to navigate and a breeze to use for several hours on a daily basis).
Now, that’s not to say that the material is incredibly difficult or taxing to learn but it is just a little bit more time-consuming than I had initially imagined it would be. Regardless, I am genuinely enjoying learning about a new topic; for the entirety of my adult life, I have been fully engrossed with and consumed by my present career, meaning that all of my learning and focus has been on that sole topic. Because of that, it is overwhelmingly refreshing to be soaking up something fresh.
I am also proud of myself for doing just that – soaking up something fresh. At a time in my life when I could easily sit back and become lazy, both in terms of my personal growth and career, it is satisfying to my soul to not do either. And to top it off, Hugo wrote me a beautiful card the other day, which was accompanied by a bouquet of colorful flowers and a delicious dinner, that said how proud he was of me and that I am an inspiration. While that isn’t my goal, it makes my internal smile shine bright knowing that my partner is impressed with my pursuits.
As a parting, extremely girly, side note – I was about to spell check this post and sling it your way when a tv ad fulfilled its mission and caught my attention. Within seconds I found myself scrolling through the advertised website – FabFitFun. It is actually a really fun idea, that I may just order for myself. In a nutshell, for roughly $50 per shipment, four times per year, a young lady, or young man (or old folks for that matter!), gets a box delivered with a varied assortment of premium products, such as makeup, clothing, and accessories. The unknown factor is what always interests me about business ideas like this, because it exposes the recipient to items they may not otherwise discover through their routine shopping excursions. Anyways, that was a little off topic but I thought I would share it because it looks like fun. Oh, before I forget, the ad mentioned using code PARTY for $10 off…enjoy! ♥
