In the in between

October 27, 2011

Between me having communication device issues, us been out of town many than we’re actually home, and trying to do the things that need to be done while we are home, work seems to have taken a back burner lately. And I find that rather frustrating. I would love more time to myself to work… Mom says things will slow down after our trip this weekend. However I’m figuring we’ll be gone either two or three weeks before our holiday traveling starts.

I’m enjoying the traveling/being with family and friends. I don’t have¬† paying work, forget when I had my last paying job. Of course, lately I haven’t had the time or inclination to really look for jobs. I’m ready to get into a job that’s pretty permanent. I do not want to start something, and then have to ask for time off before I even really start.

Things just feel slow in a lot of areas in my life. And that’s frustrated to me. Not sure what to do about it.

I’m back again

October 24, 2011

I know, I know. I haven’t written in a while. My loaner communication device broke, which was beyond frustrating. This time, however, they got my own device to me in less than a week. And not only is everything working well, the company also gave me a much needed upgrade. Love it!

We’ve also been out of town. We went to see my grandparents. They’re okay. But they do not have wi-fi or nything. That they have a computer at all is something of a joke. They don’t really have a clue what to do on a computer.

But anyway, needless to say, I haven’t done much of anything lately. We are going out of town again this weekend. After that, we may be home for a little. Then holiday travel will start..

Nervous

October 6, 2011

We are spending some time with my sister and her family. My other sister wanted some help taking care of me since my parents is going to be gone so long.¬†However, today my sister who we are visiting is out, and so I am working while she’s gone, trying to get everything finished before she returns, so that once she gets home we can just hang out.. I do not want to do what I did last week and not post a second entry.

That is not, however, why I’m nervous. I have decided to look looking for work once again. My work lately has just been writing my novel. I love working on that, don’t get me wrong, but I’m not making any money at it. I’m not sure I’ll ever finish any novel I’m trying to write. But that’s another story.

Anyway, I’ve tried to write for Mahalo.com for sometime. I tried last summer, and got a couple of articles accepted. But they went through a major restructuring. At that time, things were very up in the air, and those who had worked there tomorrow needed jobs. They told me to check back with them in a while. I’ve just written them, and so we’ll see what happens.

Getting this would be awesome! I would have somewhere to publish my articles regularly. Everything would under my own name. And I would be paid regularly. Something like that would be wonderful.

Was just lazy

October 3, 2011

I know I should have written Thursday. But… Okay, let’s start at the beginning. My parents left Wednesday to go see my sister. Hannah is the main person taking care of my needs during this time. Or at less she will be until we go up to see my sister Olivia in Atlanta. I’ll looking forward to that! Anyway! Hannah had a babysitting job Thursday, and I had to go with her. I was distracted by the cute kids, and didn’t do a whole lot of work. I figured I’d do this Friday or Saturday.

Friday morning I did my usual thing, quiet time and then wrote on my novel. There were some mix-ups with my aides Friday that kind of bothered me, so I didn’t do much of anything that afternoon.

And unfortunately Saturday turned out to just be a day I could not think. Now hopefully one day I will find work, and maybe even start college as well, and I will have to push myself to do what needs to be done. Wish I was starting that time any day now. But until then, I find it hard to make myself work when no one is counting on me/paying me.

Thankfully, yesterday was a wonderful day of rest. I had great times with friends at church yesterday morning, a good dinner and rest yesterday afternoon, and went to a terrific concert last night. I went to bed way late last night. But I’m feeling better today than last weekend, and am working well.
