I wanted to share a few life updates before I jump back in to regular posting. A lot has changed over the course of 2020-2021, aside from the obvious seemingly end-of-the-world situation we’ve been dealing with. I’m going to back you up with a nice little timeline that covers the past year.
May 2020 – October 2020
I was still working at the hospital as a registrar. COVID was a scary thought, and everything was a fuzzy haze. I’m sure most of us can relate to that, right?
I quit my job at the hospital. I came to the conclusion that I cannot mentally handle working 40 hours per week. I asked if I could change my schedule and move to a more part time position, but they weren’t willing to give that to me, so I quit for the sake of my mental health.
THEN James and I decided to elope! Patience is not my virtue, and I just could not wait any longer to marry the love of my life. We had a cute little ceremony at my grandma’s church with just a few friends and family. Afterwards we had a bonfire at said grandma’s house for whoever could come. It was such a great day that I’ll remember forever.
I started a new job as a nanny for a family of four little boys. It was okay for awhile, but the parents of the family were just plain weird with no social skills. That job didn’t last long.
James was laid off. Best Buy did a company restructure and got rid of nearly all of their full time employees, including him.
I left the nanny job, and started a new one. That didn’t go well either. The parents had no idea what they were doing/what they wanted out of me, and it just didn’t work out.
I’m unemployed, but honestly it isn’t the worst. I’m being meticulous about what job I will apply for and accept. It needs to be part time, and nothing stressful, but still have a pay rate I can live off of.
Every week I learn something new about myself, and I grow stronger. I have been able to reflect on myself and my life. I’ve recently realized that I have a lot of… weird things going on in my head, but I’ll divulge in that at a later time. I recently had an appointment with my psychiatrist, and I am so happy I was able to bring up all these issues and voice my concerns. It was a great relief.
Anyway, life is okay. I’m taking this time to work on myself. I’m hoping to get into a productive routine this summer and enjoy it. I want to read more, write more, learn more, and get myself in better health.
Join me. Or don’t. I’m just here to exist for myself.
