Fresh Start: Job vs. Career. Passion plus Purpose

Timing has always been a bitch. It has never been on my side. Whether something was a waste of time, the wrong point in time or just not having time period. Finally. Fiy-nuh-leeeeeee. Time has gotten on board with the kid. Just to give a quick run down of my last 5 years in the career world: …

Post-Independence Day: Find your Freedom

Well Happy Belated Birthday Amurica… I’m truly happy you’ve gotten your freedom. Now, now I’d like to have my freedom. *cues Beyonce* I feel like I spend  a lot of time wondering what the difference is between myself and those who I view as “successful”.  One of my favorite quotes in regards to that thought: …

Pre-Independence Day: Fuck Adulthood.

Man fuck adulthood. I wish someone had told me as a child that this shit is a trap. I’m 27, man-less, child-less, at a job I just did a career change to this year after being unemployed for half the year before. Though I managed to successfully swerve student loans, credit card debt and a car …

Who Ain’t Got No Job: For the Broke, Broken & Unemployed

I think that I have FINALLY gotten to a place where I can talk about one of my most trying times in 2015. To be honest, before I was entirely too embarrassed and felt way too vulnerable and defeated to share my struggle. But today I’ll be 100% transparent because my testimony might be something …

Let that Hurt Go: Lessons in Learning your Lesson

Anybody else out there have really realistic dreams or should I say nightmares? I find that what I often try to suppress in my conscious mind often seeps into my subconscious, so either way I’m forced to deal with it. I won’t tell the story of what dream I just woke up from for fear …

Tis’ the Season

Tis’ the season to be jolly… not broke. If you ever once forgot that you were broke, the holidays will kindly remind you. I’m currently “broke with a bachelor’s and aiming for a master’s”. So the other day, I was trying to figure out what I was going to get my loved ones for Christmas …

August Goals

“Those who fail to plan, plan to fail.” – Benjamin Franklin So I was inspired by another blogger to post my goals for the month, I thought it was a great idea and a way to help me feel more accomplished by the end of the month. The problem is that I’m such a planner, …

Don’t Waste My Time B

I’ve probably said this before, but there are fewer things that I hate more than wasted time. That has GOT to be one of my biggest pet peeves. I hate inefficiency and I hate bullshittery. Yes I know that’s not a real word, but if it existed, you’d know exactly what it meant. By now …

[Over] Commitment Issues

I have a confession to make… I have a commitment issue. Interesting enough, I’m not referring to relationships, I’m actually referring to work and extracurriculars. From the time I can remember in high school I’ve always over committed myself. Back then I thought I was just doing it in order to get some extracurricular activities on my …

I’s Hired Now

So it’s time for an update, last y’all heard I was moving  to Texas and calling ghostbusters. Welp, that is no longer the case. Since my last quarter life crisis, I have secured a job in NC working as a counselor focused on college access and drop out prevention. *Gives glory to God* because I …

Perfect Timing

“Is there any such thing? Considering there’s no such thing as “perfect”. I’m pretty sure there’s no such a thing as “perfect timing”. Now, patience, is a virtue. And it’s something I wasn’t born with. Honest to God. I wish it were different butttt it’s not. Time has never really been on my side, it’s …

Jumping Out the Window

I wanted to do something crazy today. Not like jump out the window, play in traffic crazy; but definitely something way out of character nonetheless. Something like, quit my job. Why? Not because I don’t like my job, not because I’ve found something better, really not for any sane reason at all. Hence, completely out …
