Guess what, guess what, guess what

Hello, hello, hello! I apologize for not writing a few blog posts over the last month or so. I can finally tell you why. I was a bit depressed because I couldn’t find a job, but I was also hitting the job search hard. And I got a job yesterday! I was waiting on theContinue reading “Guess what, guess what, guess what”

Unexpected accomplishment

Howdy! It’s been a pretty fun weekend so far with lots of little things — and one big one — going on. I’m going to start off with the smaller stuff and end with the big one. First, I had a lot of fun last night playing a game online with friends. The game, AmongContinue reading “Unexpected accomplishment”

Right steps, slow results

Hello, hello, hello. It’s been such a stressful week. It’s been good stress mixed with bad stress, but, unfortunately, there has been more bad stress. A couple people were laid off at work.

Howdy, folks. Hope everyone is doing OK today. I am doing well mentally today, but my autoimmune condition decided to rear its ugly head. I’m generally OK, but my shoulder is KILLING me. Every now and then, I get horrible inflammation in my joints. About 90 percent of the time, it’s my shoulder, and mostlyContinue reading “What an unusual 24 hours”

Words of encouragement

And your words of encouragement and offers of help were really something I needed. I think part of my issue with all of this is thatContinue reading “Words of encouragement”

Facing a terrifying and uncertain path

Howdy, folks. I have now officially streamed twice on Twitch. I hope I can keep it up. I am going to lose my job at the end of the year, and the job market is so competitive right now. I really hope that I can make at least some money at some point on Twitch.Continue reading “Facing a terrifying and uncertain path”

Wow, one month already? Part 1

Tomorrow marks one month since I started on my journey to attempt to change my life one “petal” at a time. I decided to split this up into two entries (stay tuned for Part 2 tomorrow), so I don’t make the entry too long. OK, so June 16 was a roller coaster of a day.Continue reading “Wow, one month already? Part 1”
