Hi everyone! I am writing a day late, but hopefully not a dollar short. Still on the job hunt, and enjoying it for the most part. Every time I put myself back out in the job market I am reminded of the first time I lived on my own. I worked two to three jobs, and lived in a small apartment in Athens, GA. I remember receiving my first light bill and thinking, “Wow! I can’t believe this is it! I work and all of the money I make just goes right back out.” How depressing! After a while it seems you just get used to it, and the bills always get paid somehow. It’s really not about the job and the bills though, it’s about living life and enjoying it, right?
My remedy for the “work, come home, and pay the bills blues” is to write. Just like I am writing now. Just getting something down on paper seems to help, whether it’s creative or otherwise. I spoke with a Dr. friend of mine today and he told me that he doesn’t know why, but it is helpful for people to write things down, whether it’s for diet and exercise or just to keep your head on straight. So, I suppose I am reminding myself as much as my readers to get it out, write it down and never let the humdrum of the daily grind kill your creativity.
Until next week.
