Let me catch y’all up to speed here. I deleted a couple posts because they were posted in haste when I was angry and needing to vent. And I know I worried some. I see you fam 🙂 Plus, it just took away from the professional tone I’m trying to voice here. I want this blog to kind of go somewhere someday. I’d like it to look pretty. I’d like to offer good advice. And most importantly, I’d like to hopefully inspire people to go out into what can be a scary world and genuinely be themselves.
So basically what happened: I quit my job and literally less than a week later my car’s transmission blew. I was maintaining a positive attitude, but then I got entirely overwhelmed with the fact that I had no source of income, and I was being told it was going to cost $6000 to fix. I stopped applying for the PA jobs that I wanted and started applying for customer service gigs again, and I was getting interview requests. Needless to say, I was disheartened.
Fast forward to now: My brother knew a better mechanic than the one I was working with and we got the cost down to around $2000. I got a rental car because…wait for it…I got a job as a PA working for a YouTube channel! I’m pretty stoked. I’m borrowing a ton of money from my family which is so, so hard for me to do, but I’m thankful they are willing and able to help me out. So things are looking up.
I’m still feeling overwhelmed because I generally just don’t do well with change. Here I am driving a car I’m not comfortable in AND starting a new job, but I can do it. This is such a huge stepping stone for me and gets me so much closer to the big goals I have. For once I feel like I’m headed in some kind of direction. The direction I may have been meant to go this whole time.
So, this is going to be a hectic but fun week. Buckle up everyone!
