Keeping fingers crossed for the time being

My fingers are starting to feel funny but that’s not the point. Anyway, the person I work for is trying to take care of their employees. I just had to fill out a form to get some money in if we have to close down. Hours are looking pretty bad. I’ve had roughly 10 hoursContinue reading “Keeping fingers crossed for the time being”

Mapping out my life route options

I’ve been trying to make a lot of big decisions lately but the branches to other paths are keeping me static. Maybe I just need to type them out and get a better understanding of what my options are. I could always “move in” with my brother, his wife, and their 1.5-year-old kiddo. I couldContinue reading “Mapping out my life route options”

I know I usually post a lot when I’m down but I was just too down last week. My birthday was just me choosing to be alone so I could nurse my mental wounds with Seagrams and Marlboros.

Things have been a bit hectic because my schedule keeps doing almost-180s. I’m training for a different position at work and the schedule is 4:30am-12pm whereas my original schedule was 8:30am-2:30pm-ish.Continue reading “I’m coming back.”

Life Update!

I have officially decided not to attend university this semester after some time of anxiety induced thinking! I wanted to go into childhood education but I am not sure I am fit for this degree. Instead, I think I’d rather be in something a little more technical and creative, maybe media or journalism. I haveContinue reading “Life Update!”
