It’s a pleasure to make your acquaintance once again. I know it’s been FOREVER and a day since I last posted. I am going to hope and assume all of you have had overall an fantastic 2018. Mine has been a downward roller coaster and that’s putting it lightly.
Before we get into it, Can i just say watching New York’S NYE celebration on television left me feeling very underwhelm. I don’t have cable so i had to use YouTube. i don’t think the camera men knew depending on which stream the user used, there was either: No volume, one was split into five different screen, and the one who did have volume and one screen, only showed that blonde hair girl who couldn’t sing. Around 1am i looked up the line up and discovered that there ware other performers, I just missed them. I checked around at other countries. To be real, only Dubai delivered on overall presentation.
There are a few things I have definitely learn from 2018. Lesson one: always read the fine print. And even if you think you know what’s going on, reread it before any major changes. For example, when I cashed in my retirement. Back in April, I gave up $1500.00 because I ended it before three years.
Lesson Two: Moving on job wise is never easy. Unless you already have job lined up and even then things can go sour. I met a guy who got a job across the the USA and he convinced his wife to sell the house and leave her teaching job. Only to get there for a bit and find out the job is gone. My feelings are, how does one get another job without references? The answer is you can’t and it’s not like your current employer is going to give references. It’s as if others want people to stay stuck in a place with no forward moment up.
I have been through a roller coaster of bad luck that just won’t quit. Just when i think I have a moment to breath something else happens. It’s hard to stay positive when there isn’t anything to be positive about. Not going to lie, I wish life was like a game and with just one tiny step; I get rewarded with a “Get out of Jail” or “Do Over” card. Wouldn’t it be nice to simply rewind time back to a moment when you believe things went south and change everything with the knowledge you currently have? Unfortunate, my luck sucks and life just isn’t that way. I feel as though I am perpetually stuck in neutral . While the world continues to pass me by.
Speaking of life passing me by, My thirtieth birthday is coming up. I’m still unemployed, it sucks not having a phone, relying on someone else for calls means I miss a lot of phone calls. Seems like this years a little more so than last is going to be a crappy birthday. I desperately need a change of scenery. Writing would do me good, but so far I am drawing blanks. My mind feels like half painted canvas. The urge to finish is there (write a new story) but the motivation is not.
Hopefully, I will hear back about something soon about a job. Because so far nothing is going my way.
However on that one in a billion chance things do finally look up for me, I am hoping to either visit, Seattle, Philadelphia or LA for my birthday. I need a vacation like you would NOT believe.
