Second job is great for savings! :)

Sorry for not posting for awhile guys! Sometimes I get in a bit of a rut and don't know what to post about. Either that or I have a lot of idea's all jumbled up in my mind and I can't seem to sort them out!

I may have mentioned before that a former co-worker of mine opened up his own pharmacy and offered me a job. So I have been working there as well as my normal job. My main job gives me about 25-30 hours a week and then I work at this place about 12 hours a week. Between these two I have been working 6 days a week lately and at least one of those days is a split day where I'm at one job in the morning and the other in the afternoon.

Although it can get tiring, I do it because I do enjoy it. This new job is a completely different type of environment from my main job so I enjoy the variety of the two, because each place is a break from the other.

The upside to this, of course, is the extra money! Recently I made a decision to save every penny of that income from the second job. So far this has been put into my travel fund. Since starting at this new job around September I have put about $866 into my travel fund. I am now at $2000.00 !!!! This makes me incredibly happy as $2000 was my goal for going to Portugal, something that I have been dreaming of since I was a teenager. Speaking of which, I have now been at my current job for over one year so I get two weeks vacation. So my dream of going to Portugal is looking to become a reality :)

So not much is new other than I have just been working a lot and doing my online course, which is super boring!! The first few weeks were pretty heavy in terms of reading and workload, but it has lightened up a little. But I think the last few weeks are again going to be quite heavy, not to mention studying for the final exam. Speaking of exams, I had a Jurisprudence exam a few weeks ago which I am waiting to get the results of. I really hope I passed. I am a little concerned because I felt like some questions were trick questions. :(
