I don't know why but I feel like if I was going to share my woes and triumphs it would be here. Life has not be so easy, i'm not saying it's been hard either, but I just feel like I've been stuck in the same place for the past few years. I've only been working full time and I don't make enough to support myself fully and this is why I still live with my parents.
But good news is that I will be working full time at a country club! I will be staying out there for the majority of the week but I'll be making good money and It's not too far* from my home (about an hour and a half if everything works well with public trans). And if I save enough for a car it'll only be a 40 min drive! I really like this place. I've been working there through an agency for a while and I know everyone and the manager loves me. I asked for a job and without hesitation he said the job was mine. So I'll be bartending full time next year and that's step one.
But there is a second side to this cloud. This could be the year I'll be called into the police academy. I don't know if I'm ready for this. I'm scared but I know it's the best thing for me and it'll be a great career. I'll make that decision when the time comes.
But good new aside, I've been lost as to what to do with my writing. I've felt as is it has become a cold mistress. I used to find joy in it and now only sorrow. I talked to some of my close friends and they're thoughts really helped. My old friend really put it into perspective for me and it led me to the truth. I was not looking at it like I used to. I was looking at it from a monetary perspective and what I could do with it rather than a creative output and what it could do for me. So I will write because I want to and love to and share it because I want to share it with the world rather than try and make money on it. This is why I am going to gift my remaining copies of my first book. As a warm gesture to writing. Hopefully I will find my muse once again and write like I used to.
I guess that was good news too.
Thanks for listening!
