What I Found
Turns out that losing a part time job was the best thing that ever happened to me. In losing a significant portion of my weekly income, after a couple of weeks I gained a sense of freedom. I was lucky enough to find my self with an extra $80 in the middle of that February and a random three day weekend.
Normally, a random three day weekend was out of the question. But now, I no longer had to plan weekends around a part time job that took one night a week from me.
It was the most liberating event.
