My bad, sorry blog!

Yeah so umm… I was reading my old posts and realized that for my birthday post I said I had been blogging for 3 years…

It’s actually 4! I have no idea why I thought it was only three. I must be getting senile in my old age!

I need some guidance

Well, it’s been some time since I’ve written in here. To be honest, I haven’t been feeling it a lot lately. Every time I think things in my life are getting better, they take a turn for the worse.

I’ve been busy living my life and haven’t had time to write; right now I’m just trying to get through everything intact.

I’ve had a lot of fun (birthday party, monster truck rally, being picked to be on a TV show) but once again I am facing a crisis in my life.

Things aren’t going so well at my new job, and more and more I am seeing that this industry just isn’t right for me. I took this job so I could make some money, get out of my depression and focus on what I really want to do: run my own business.

So what’s happened now?

Well, I’m facing losing my job, which means I would lose my home. I’m struggling to find a backup plan since most reception/admin jobs don’t pay enough to allow me to stay where I am (or put enough away to start a business!) and no one will hire me because I’m over qualified.

I’m not ready to start my business (still don’t have a solid idea or plan, and the courses I took through Humber were a crock of shit).

So I’m trying to find some new job, but the challenge is finding something decent in a different industry that uses all my soft skills. Part of my problem right now is that my mathematical learning disability is making it really hard to work with all the charts, graphs and number analysis that I have to do as my job. (I can do some of it, but it’s really difficult for me)

I’m incredibly strong in the written & spoken communications areas and all the stuff that traditionally goes with that; but other than journalist or editor, etc. (which I’m not qualified for, anyway) I can’t think of any careers that would pay decently and are something I could do with minimal math or analytical thinking. I’m good at processes and stuff, too. My dad suggested looking into non-computer engineering IT positions. I don’t even know where to start.

I need a job soon; I don’t really have the time or money to go back to school for anything. Plus, as I learned firsthand, a lot of courses are full of shit, once you’ve been out in the real world.

Readers, what is your job/career path? Why did you choose it and how are things going? Any suggestions for me? I’m really lost.

Happy Birthday… To Me!

Yup. Another one.

I’m 26 today, and my blog is a toddler (3)! Wow, 3 years of blogging… I’m an old fart in the internet world!

From TheStar.com:

IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: This year, tap into your innate creativity. In fact, you might be amazed how solutions appear. Take good care of your health, and avoid any extremes. Bones and teeth could be vulnerable. If you are single, count down the days to summer, when you might delight in admirers playing Ring around the Rosey around you. If you are attached, expect the summer to sizzle as you reconnect with your sweetie on a deeper level. Taurus intrigues you.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 20)

Allow for more exchange with others. A sense of humour, a different approach and/or less intensity could work. Lighten up a situation. Deal directly with someone you care about. He or she will illuminate your day as a result. Tonight: Let your imagination lead.

From The Globe & Mail:

IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:

There is a huge luck factor working in your favour at the moment and it will continue through the coming 12 months. Your good fortune will be greater though if you actively seek out new ways to enrich yourself, personally, professionally and financially.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):

Watch out you don’t give away too much information today. With Jupiter transiting the communications area of your chart there may be a tendency to say too much. Unwise words can be used as weapons against you.

All is well

Just a quick post to let everyone know my surgery went well this morning!

Turns out I had a hernia as well and they fixed it too. I’m  still in pain and stuff, but no major complications. I should be back on my feet soon.

Ok, back to bed for me!

Oooh la la

I have 2 beautiful French men that took me out for dinner staying over tonight. They are not gay.

That is all.

Helllooooo

Is anybody out there?

I’m still kicking around. Just working through a lot of personal stuff right now (don’t worry I’ll fill you in).

Just need to get back into the writing groove.

Stay classy,

G
