It is day two of painting, and luckily I’ve gotten away with my hands clean. Due to my job at the club, I’ve not been able to help out. However, I’ve been to Home Depot four times helping to pick out colors and materials. It is amazing how a place I’ve grown so familiar with is completely different simply because of the wall colors. It reminds me of my recently stated idea; it isn’t about changing locations, but changing perspectives. The apartment seems cozier, and the feeling of stability is settling in.
Something that I am not used from living in Cleveland is people standing outside of stores asking any passer-by if they had work. It is solid proof of the failing economy and huge eye opener as to how blessed I am to work.
I’ve finally obtained a fulltime job at Panera Bread in the area of marketing. I begin Monday and I am pretty excited. The logistics and job description will be explained to me Monday and I will share with you excitedly. I am truly blessed to have this opportunity considering my age and lack of degree. For all of us writers out there, WE ARE TALENTED. My writing ability was 50% the reason I’ve obtained this job. Hard work pays off—hopefully this job will too!
I have to say thank you to my blog friend Sheila. She recently honored me in her blog post "Just Killing Time." Sheila is a hard- working and proud mother. I’ve enjoyed her blog and think you all will too.
Thank you Audrey for this award! I will think about it and pass it on accordingly! Check out her new book blog too!
The weather in California isn’t in conjunction with my mood. With new opportunities on the horizon, I am feeling quite bright and cheery; the weather is cool and windy. My friends and family back in Ohio have enjoyed rubbing it in my face. I am happy they are feeling the warm weather, but my spirits are warm too!
As far as BWI’s film project, everything is going great. We have selected three talented actors. We have rehearsals all this weekend and week. Our videographer is flying in on Sunday night and preparing the apartment for the week of filming. I’m so excited for the next step to progress. I’ll be working hard on that, along with everything else.
I am very happy to have gone from bored to busy. I will now be working Monday-Friday during the day at Panera Bread, Thursday-Saturday (sometime Sunday) nights at the club! Things are looking up and I am ready to work hard. As we all continue through our pursuit, I hope you find opportunities to be excited and to try new things. Take care, friends.
