Good Saturday morning! Thank you for joining me. Let’s get some drinks! I am loving this banana yogurt veggie smoothies. I tried it at the beginning of the week and still loving it.
What would you like? Coffee, tea, or shall I whip you up a smoothie too? I can make so many combinations of smoothies now, my everyday breakfast is never the same. I made a spicy smoothie (with ginger) yesterday, so good.
How’s your week been? Anything interesting happened?
Me? My week went by fast. I guess that’s what happens when I’m not working.
This is the first time ever I have nothing to do. No work, no school. I have been going to school since age 5 and began working and going to school (at the same time) since 2012 except 2017. I was even working during my 4-month stay in China last year. So can you tell why I’m still having a little problem adjusting? I have been so busy my whole life that I don’t know how to un-busy myself for a change.
Anyway, I spent the week looking for regular and freelance jobs. I applied for a few but got rejected. It was funny. I applied for a job and got rejected the very same day. Then the HR of that company called me on Wednesday and asked me to interview. I was like, “Didn’t you already send my resume to the trash?” This was my third time applying for this company. Maybe third time’s the charm.
Another company also asked me to set up a telephone interview. The email specifically told me to reply to this specific email address but it’s been four days and Google is still telling me the email hasn’t gone through. What are these companies playing at?
In between searching for employment, I went on Meetup and searched for clubs because staying at home is getting me down. I needed something to take my mind off of this rut I’ve caught myself in.
I signed up for two Meetups and attending the meetings. In one of those meetings, I found myself in a room full of people either has a business or starting a business. Everyone wanted to help one another succeed in his or her business. In that meeting, I met a lady who was eager to help me. We’ve set up a time to talk next week. This can be the start of something great. I can feel it. Maybe my luck’s turning.
In my other meetup, my primary goal was to get over my writer’s block. Ever since I started working for that Chinese Company, I had been having a hard time writing speeches for Toastmasters and fiction stories longer than 150 words. In 2017, I’ve written zero long fictions. I believe that’s the result of not utilizing my English enough. I’m hoping by going to this Writing meetup each week, I will be able to write again.
If we were having drinks, I would thank you for joining me this weekend. Before we say goodbye and until next weekend, I would like to show you some of the pictures from my trip to Bryce Canyon last weekend.
