Hello people of the internet!
It’s been two weeks since I’ve talked to you directly so here I am to talk about the last couple weeks. I’ve been super busy trying to keep up with everything, but it’s a good kind of busy. I’m trying my hardest to stay ahead of the publishing schedule, but I apologize if I fall behind and have to start releasing stuff later in the evening. Usually I try to have stuff publish in the morning, but as you can see today with this update, it doesn’t always happen! I just want to inform everyone about stuff going forward. This past weekend I interviewed for a few different jobs within the public sector. If I end up getting one of these jobs, it would require me to move and figure out a lot of stuff. I believe that all this new stuff will probably lead me to take a week off to figure out that stuff which will cut into my writing time. Additionally, if I do get a job in the public sector, I will start writing my political pieces because I view it as a conflict of interest. The things I write are my own opinions and should not reflect the views of any group I may be affiliated with, and I don’t want people blurring the lines between the two. If I cut the political pieces, that will change my writing schedule and when things publish. This is a lot of “what ifs” so I will let everyone know the details as we go forward and things become more real. For now things won’t change, but it is possible things might change soon so I thought I’d try to address it beforehand.
On to the rest of this week!! Basically I’ve been overwhelmed by possible changes to my life and trying to keep some time for writing. But over the last few weeks I’ve been thinking about how my last year of my life has gone. This time last year I was preparing for some final exams and graduation from college. Then I went off into the real world and kind of struggled to find employment and save up money to pay off student loans. To be honest, I was down most days and I felt like I really didn’t have a purpose. I had nowhere to go and nothing to do which led to me getting stuck in this sad rut. But about 6 months ago all of that changed when I got a job with really great co-workers and then I got the idea for this website. I started writing and working and it really got out of my funk. Now I’m sitting here after interviewing for two different jobs and applying for a third as I am already happily employed. It’s quite a pick-me-up to have several different employment opportunities as well as exciting options for my future. It can be kind of scary, but I’m staying positive and I’m optimistic for my future.
All of this thinking has made me realize that things are going really well for me right now. I don’t mean this in a bragging way, but I think it is a good thing to talk about the positive as well as the negative. Sometimes when times are stressful or things don’t seem to be going right, it helps to talk about it and get it off your chest. The same thing can be said for when you’re happy and things are going great. It is good to talk about it and process it. It just helps me think about things and put them into perspective and realize how lucky I am for this 180 from 9 months ago when I was struggling. Things are going well and I’m looking forward to where things might go in the future.
I also hope things are going great for everyone out there! If you’re reading this, then you should know that I really appreciate your viewership. We are slowly building a community and you are an important part of this. When I see my viewership climb and the number of viewers climb, it is a huge boost to my morale and make me want to write more stuff. So I hope you enjoyed this piece and you are having a great time. If not, just hold out for a while and I promise things will get better!
I hope you have a wonderful week and maybe spend some time on the website!
