Update of Life

Good Middle of the Night from Seattle. I just work up with only three hours of sleep and hope I can get back to sleep since I have an online interview at two in the afternoon via Microsoft Teams. I haven’t been getting much sleep due not having any money to pay rent or other bills. Good need news that the rent stuff with the landlord got situated as it wa on their end. Bad news I still have other bills to pay which are pretty high. I’m looking at the bright side that the landlord realized it was their mistake and I would not get a “lack of payment notice.”

On other good news I accepted a job yesterday (Tuesday) evening for a part time job that is twelve hours a week. Not as many hours as I would like but it’s a job. I will still be applying to jobs and attending interviews as well as continue to apply for unemployment who is still dragging their feet. I’m hoping that get unemployment since I will only be working twelve hours a week. If don’t then I don’t but it i s worth a try.

I hate to ask this again especially since most of you have money issues yourselves but am hoping some of you can donate to my paypal account at @GertiesJourney1979; Seattle. Wa. (Not sure if the @ Seattle is suppose to be there or not. In any case I will be happy even if one per donate money to my paypay account.

Before I end this post, my cat, Billie has been a great comfort to me as he always is. I love my cat so much. I am thrilled he chose me to be his human and apart of his family. I truly believe that animals are part of the family.

I don’t have much more to say as I want to try to get back to sleep so I can be well rested for my interview. Have good night slep. Peace out World!!!

Weekly Check-In

Good Evening, World!!! It has been quite some time since I have done a weekly check in. A lot has happened and sadly a few weeks ago a mutual agreement between myself and now ex-new employer that it wasn’t a good fit for myself or the employer. That means I have been job hunting. This last week I’ve been filling out so many applications my fingers have been cramping up. I’ve been on three interviews this last week.

On another note, Billie had a second follow up appointment regarding his dental extractions. He is healing up okay. He is a champ and didn’t do much complaining except when the anastitic wore off and it was only for a couple of hours. Me as a human would have complained more than my cat about the dental work.

As for me, I was physically attacked and had to go to the emergency room. I have six staples in my head and a shoulder injury. So, I’ve been going to follow up appointments. I’m doing better and my concussion is slowly getting better. I get my staples out on the sixteenth of this month and hopefully will get a referral for physical therapy for my shoulder if it does not get any better.

I think I caught you up to date over this last week as I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you do read my blog. If it was not for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. So, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

The Woes of Billie my Cat & Myself; Yes, Things are Getting Better w/the Two of Us

Hello, World! It is just after twelve noon in the afternoon here in my corner of the world known as Seattle. A lot has happened over the last couple of weeks. Lot of job interviews and doctors appointments.I’m going to get better health wise.

In fact my cat has had some health issues besides the kidney stuff. He has some dental stuff done and one is’t healing correctly so as a precautionary measure they are giving Billie my cat antibiotics. Billie appears to be fine most of the time. Well except when he has to take his antibiotics. I don’t blame as they probably taste yucky to him.

As far as me I’ve sexually assaulted last weekend by a neighbor and few days later physically assaulted by the same neighbor. The police are “looking into it.”

I the mean time I have been feeling out job applications and attending job interviews. Some I know I won’t get while others I have a good chance. Wish me luck with getting a job sooner than later.

I’ve also be doing art work for my mom which i hope she enjoys.

I don’t have much more to say except thank you for reading.

A Couple of Weeks Full of Much Needed but Unwanted Things to Do

I haven’t had the easiest starts to this week do to a traumatic weekend which led to two weeks of unwanted doctors appointments for myself. That doesn’t include Billie’s follow up dental procedure where one area is in the “grey area” of being infected but unsure unless they do test. They left it up to be to not do the test w/out antibiotics and come back in a week. Or do the test to see if antibiotics were needed or not do the test and do the antibiotics. I chose no test with the antibiotics. Its cheap and precautionary.

On top of that I’ve been having my own health issues, I will not exactly get into except medicare is so under staff right now; just thinking about it makes me want to cry. You would think some place like Seattle would have plenty of doctors but no.

Anyway on to better news I am having job interviews once again as the job I up getting after being laid off did not work out to well. I just hope I get a job that best works for me and the needs of my cat Billie as well as myself.

Overall Billie and I are doing fine and I don’t have much more to discuss in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It greatly appreciative from my perspective that you do read my blog. If it was not for you reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. I hope everyone has a great evening. Peace Out, World!!!

Anxiety Increasing as Tomorrow Gets Closer

Hello, World!!! My anxiety is increasing as tomorrow gets closer. Even though I’ve had my first week of work it was mostly done remotely or in person with the HR and IT departments which is at different location that I will be working at. See tomorrow in my first day at my job site and I am nervous as fucking hell. I know it is okay to be nervous but not just anxious about my first day at my job site.

I am nervous about having to take public transportation again. The last two years I’ve been either working from home or taking Lyft to and from work due to Covid-19 as I was trying to limit the amount of exposure I could get. I’m not so worried about the exposure as much due to having the vaccine, the booster and actually being diagnosed with Covid-19 the day after I got the booster. Covid suck shit and I know there is a possibility of getting it again but that is not why I’m worried about using public transportation. I’m nervous because, I’ll be taking a route I’ve never taken before. I’m nervous because even on routes, I am familiar with, there are times I have to get off due anxiety and/or PTSD issues and would have to wait for the next bus so I could be in a better head space to be back on the bus. I know everything will be fine but I’m still anxious about it. I just to get use to public transportation again as well as a new route to me.

When I get home from work tomorrow I am sure my cat Billie dean will be more than happy that I am home. Hell, Billie is always happy when I get home even if it is for five minutes for checking my mail or taking out the garbage. I’m more than certain that I will be just as happy to be home as my cat will be.

I do not have much else to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you the reader, read my blog. If it was not for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. So, once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Everyday Inspiration; Day 12: Critique a Piece of Work

I don’t have anything to critique at the moment. This will be a very short post. I will say that my critique would be my new job and the great way they are doing training. My new employer is doing an awesome job with training and is willing to be accommodable to those of us living with a disability. So far I give the training an A.

I Think I Might Like the Job but Could it Be the Job that is Best for Me

Hello, World!!! After three days of training at my new job has worn me the fuck out with all the training the last three days. I am thinking I’m going to like the new job but worry it could not be best for me. I really hope it is a good fit for me. I just don’t like the commute on public transportation part of work. I think that which ever direction this new job is to me is what I need to do at the moment. I have the day off but will still be looking work stuff all newbies need to look at.

On that note I plan on doing a math workbook to help me better at math and understand math terms better. It will give me an education in math that I’ve need since leaving California and getting a shitty education in the Bellevue School District.

On another note I will be doing two workbooks tomorrow. One on mindfulness and the other on recovery. Recovery with mental health workbooks. This is to help me become a better me to help other be their better selves.

I don’t have anything else to say. I just want to say thanks for reading my blog.

Everyday Inspiration; Day 7: Let Social Media Inspirer You

Being inspired by social media is a catch twenty-two. For example I’m on WordPress to blog and it is inspiring as I get to read peoples stories of inspiration and I don’t think I have seen and dram on WordPress. To me that is a good thing

Another good thing about another Social Media site I am on is LinkedIn as it is a professional social media site. I’m on it to make sure my name is out there just in case I need a new job like I did recently dud to being laid off. LinkedIn helped me get noticed for my last two jobs as well as my new job that I will be start this Monday. I’m getting excited and anxious about it which is normal.

As far as Facebook book goes, it’s full of drama. I’m mainly on it to see some old friends. Oh I can’t forget about seeing the animals and pets people share on their Facebook. I think the pets, animals and friends is the why I stay on Facebook because there is way too much drama on it.

Everyday Inspiration; Day 3; One-Word Inspiration

Choice

I chose the word choice because we all have choices to make. Some are good and some are not so good. For example I had and interview for a job and told them yes when they offered me the job the next dey. I really ant this job; its the commute I am not not a big fan of. Even I have taken the job and haven’t started yet, I am still applying for other jobs that are closer to home and pay more.

Worse care scenario I make a decision of taking a job closer to home and pays more money. The think about this job that I took was be cause the HR lad who works there work at the job I was laid of from. In fact I admire her.

In all honesty I don’t ant to make the choice of making a job change especially if I haven’t started yet or just start the job. It is a choice I will have to decide on if it comes up.
