3 Plutus Award Nominations, 2 Jobs Quit, 1 New Career

What a week this has been.  Since the blogger happy hour last Thursday, my life has gone in all sorts of weird directions.  Lots to tell and it all ties into personal finance.  Things get better as you scroll down, so I hope you pick up on my excitement.

Plutus Awards

First, and most importantly, I want to tell you that I have been honored with probably the coolest thing since I have started blogging.  I was nominated for two Plutus Awards (twice for one award!)

The Plutus Awards were put together by Flexo of Consumerism Commentary and are going to be awarded to the best of the finance world.  There was an entire section and several categories devoted to blogs and bloggers.  A lot of my favorites received several nominations.  Congrats to each of them.  Voting begins today, so take a look below at the categories that I was nominated for along with some really amazing competiton.  I am truly humbled to be associated with these great writers.

Plutus Award Category: Best Multi-Part Series

Plutus Award Category: Best Kept Secret Personal Finance Blog

Best of luck to all of those nominated in these categories.  I am super excited to be in such amazing company.

Becoming a One Trick Pony

This past weekend, I quit a job for the first time (delivering  pizzas doesn’t count… my car got totaled).  Effective Monday, I am no longer a concierge at the apartment building.  Its kind of a shame, but I have made some great friends there and surely have some memories.  After 20 months of 7 days a week without a day off, I am happy to try and reclaim some of my mid-twenties back.

Unfortunately, I am reminded of a Henry Rollins spoken word bit where he rants about people saying they want to “catch up” on sleeping or “catch up” on reading.  He went on to say something to the effect of you, “You can’t take each day for granted.  You either sleep or don’t.  You either read or you fuckin’ don’t.  You can’t ‘catch up’.”  Makes me feel a bit like “reclaiming” my mid-twenties is an impossibility. At least I have no debt and a lot of mutual funds to show for it.

Taking That One Trick and Hoping to Improve It

As of this morning, I have given my notice to my actual 9-5 employer that I am no longer going to be working for them after two weeks.  I am moving to a marketing agency to work in their marketing intelligence department!  I am really excited about this opportunity as it will give me a whole new skill set and allow me to use my brain in a way I haven’t since late in college and grad school.

One thing to note is that I will be a contractor for the time being at this position.  Which means I am self employed.  I want to give a big shout out to Cash Money Life and Money Blue Book as I used their information about estimated taxes and self employment taxes when making my decision to take my career in this direction.  You will see a lot more writing about how to truly live as a self employed individual.  I will talk about my quest for health care and dental coverage, filing estimated taxes, writing things off, etc.

As you can see, its been an exciting couple of days.  Forgive this being a week with only this post and a Foul Up on Friday.   Things are just a bit hectic and show no signs of calming down.
