Make-It Monday - Freedom

bitmoji_goalsIt's hard to feel free when you're in dire need of employment and worried about losing your home. When nearly every moment is occupied with job hunting and applications and you'd like to be doing almost anything else. These weeks have been exhausting and I haven't gotten as much writing done as I'd like to.

I now understand why the working poor doesn't chase their dreams.

They're too busy fighting to survive.

But many a self-made millionaire started there.

I had a job interview today! It felt like it went well, but who knows? They could've been more impressed with someone else. I feel good about it anyway. I think it was one of my better interviews. I should hear this week. Cross your fingers, pray, or whatever you'd like for me please and thank you!

Hopefully the tide is changing in my favour. I could really use the kind of break that is a bunch of work.

I'm making a lot of progress in cleaning my home thanks to having a friend stay over this week. Also, I discovered The Clutter Fairy. I find her videos the best. I've noticed that cleaning my home has made me feel better about my circumstances. As more of my place is put in order, I feel like more of my life is coming together.You could say I'm getting sorted.

I've even been decluttering my friends list on Facebook. That is also improving my mood.

Things are coming along with my internship. We're nearing our first shoot of the season. I'll be reaching out to the big acts this week to see if they'll talk to us. If I get one of them to come, my parents will be super jealous...

Some other exciting things are in the hopper. I'm not allowed to talk about them.

I feel freer than I did yesterday. Circumstances haven't changed and yet my mindset about them has. I think that's important.

The Gauntlet That Was October

I had a lot of things happen in October. I watched Frankenstein in the cemetery with friends. I had tea with a friend. I started a new sport: curling. This is really fun and I'm enjoying the level of activity it provides and all the strategic elements. I'll do a separate post on it soon. Unfortunately, soon after my first game, I came down with Covid and so did the friend who I had tea with, so I think we both caught it at the place we went to. That wasn't fun. I already posted about that. I was fortunate to be free of it in time to attend Can-Con where I took in lots of panels, saw some of the wonderful writer community, bought many new books, and volunteered to help out in the rooms. The following weekend, I went to the livestream for Danielle Allard's new album release, followed by the in person release. As part of this, she has a 6 video series that releases every Sunday on her YouTube at 1:15 PM EDT. Video number 2, Falling Into Place, is one that I feel fortunate

2023 - Week 40

I felt a touch rough on Monday. After exchanging some shoes, I needed electrolytes. The heat with the egg thing made me a bit nauseus. I had lots of fluids before having noodles for dinner. That made me feel better. When Tuesday came about, I was looking forward to what I might be learning at GSL curling in the evening. I was also excited to being on the ice as a break from the unseasonal heat. It's spooky season! It's supposed to be a cool and cuddly time. We should be wearing hoodies (or bunny hugs if you prefer). Instead, I was sweating in jeans as I simply walked from my condo building to my car. Wednesday's plan was streaming, but I also hoped to fit an exchange at Home Depot in as I got the wrong shelf size for a project. Really, my original plan for something didn't work, so I was choosing to go a different way. I did stream, but I didn't get to Home Depot. Thursday featured work followed by packing for my spooky weekend away with friends. I got my oil and my

The PWHL

I've gotten my season tickets for the inaugural season of the Professional Women's Hockey League. I had put my deposit down as soon as it was open. Am I a hockey superfan? No. I enjoy hockey. I started watching it quite a lot during my divorce. I also used to practice my slapshot against the foundation of our house when I was an angst-filled teen. I care about women in sport having amazing opportunities like this. Anyway, some people in the comments section on the posts are truly something. The league posted the schedule, which was more of a calendar without time blocks listed. They happened to post that on the day that priority purchasing was opened for the season tickets.  So then there are a bunch of people who didn't put deposits down that were complaining they can't buy tickets yet. Makes total sense 😒 And then there were a bunch of other people complaining that nothing has been announced on the streaming and televisation of the games. Some were even suggesting th
