WRITING WHILST JOBLESS

Today makes an entire week I have been jobless from Corporate America. Only the past two days or so have I gotten outta my funk and really focused on writing book 2 of my zombie trilogy. You are getting this post because I am quite pleased with how the events are streaming outta me on to paper 😁
So, I wasn't fired. I just stopped showing up. I had been trying to escape the clutches of that job for months and was finding it difficult to go on interviews and still maintain with missing those days from my paycheck. So, after an incident that bothered me so badly, was just the shove I needed to push myself out of the door. I did this hastily because I was told I could land another much much better paying job within a couple days. That didn't pan out, story of my life.

I'm not in panic mode just yet, I'm saving that for next week. I believe NYC is one of the worst paying job markets I have lived it. Atlanta was the best. I just expect so much more from this city and I am always let down. Case in point:

A floater position in Staten Island only paying $11/HR.

The position I ditched in Long Island was only paying $10/HR, and there are still tons of positions that try and offer below that. In this metropolis? Ridiculous! I was definitely trying to take charge of my financial crisis being in NY is putting on me, but the concrete jungle wishes to keep me entrapped in its rotten apple claws that much longer.

So, I write...

It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?

Adulting: Surviving A Long Term Goal

How To Reach A Long Term Goal:Write the goal downKeep doing what you need to do to achieve the goalConstantly look up things that motivate you towards your goalA little competition never hurts!Speak the goal into existenceExpect to fail, but plan to succeed I made it! Holy crap, Batman! I survived Mental Health Awareness Month, and I have no idea how I kept pushing myself. I skipped lunch today to save the extra coins. Yes, you read that right. A co-worker had a snarky remark about it, but guess what? IDGAF! I have goals in my mind, and I'm keeping my eye on the prize. Summer 2018 is mine, and I can only hope that things are finally falling into place. Besides, it's not like I didn't eat anything. I just didn't order out. I saved my money. Call me cheap.


I don't know what the rest of the Summer holds for me, but I know I'm going places and making progress. It has been slow going, and I have been tried, tempted, and failed so many times. I don't know where …
