A Lazy Day of Pay

First of all, I would start this blog post by saying that I am blessed.

Since April I have been unemployed. There was a group lay off at last job, which was at the airport, and I was one of the fortunate ones to get cut. I know what you are thinking: a job at the airport must be really good, with great pay and benefits. Well, you are wrong.  I couldn’t have been happier to leave. I wasn’t worried financially, right away, but then again I did not think I was going to be unemployed for long. Needless to say, three months later, I was still job hunting.

I started to panic then. Job hunting can be so costly and exhausting. I started to believe that I just would not get a job this summer. I went to so many job interviews, some promising, other not so much. For example, I went to this interview for a position as a “masseuse in a spa”, which turned out to be a prostitute position, bluntly put.

Fast forward to the end of July, I finally got a phone call for a receptionist position in a retirement home that I had applied for at least a month prior. I was more than ecstatic to take the offer as I desperately needed a job at that point. A couple of week after that, I got another call for a position at a dental office that I don’t even remember applying for! Both jobs are absolutely amazing. I never thought I would say this is a million years. I do absolutely nothing at the retirement home. Granted, I only work weekends there, but at times I feel guilty. My “receptionist duties” include reading a book/magazine, catching up on my favorite blogs, and answer the occasional phone calls that come through. That is basically it. I get bored at time but with the internet available, I find something to entertain me. Although I work two jobs, full time at the dental office and part time at the retirement home, I don’t feel tired at all. I have had worst jobs (I worked at Wal-Mart for two years, and still suffer back problems from it), so I count my blessings. The only downside is that I work everyday! :/

I am currently writing this post at work, need I say more?

Where have I been?

First and foremost, I would like to apologize for my lack of posts. Simply put, I have been really lazy as of lately. I have absolutely no excuse/explanation as to why I’ve only had one post in the month of June. Granted I went on vacation for a week, but I also had internet the entire time I was at the resort smh. In the past couple of weeks, I have been very unenthusiastic about life in general to be honest. Although I am loving the warm weather, I find myself staying in most days and just watching movies = complete laziness. It’s ironic really. During the school year, when I was in school full time and working two jobs, I found the energy to blog and post videos on my youtube channel. Now that summer vacations are here, and I only work weekends, I do absolutely nothing with my days YET I complain about having no time LOL.

Anyways, I will try to do way better in the future. I have a lot of blogs to put out so stay tunned

Until next time
