A Choice to Make Time for New Changes

Good Afternoon, World!!! As the year is quickly coming to an end, I have been thinking about changes I want to make in my life. Some are new changes and some not so new changes that I have been putting off. Changes can be a bit challenging to do even if it is a change you have been wanting and looking forward to.

Let’s start with the changes I desperately been putting off for months. That is cleaning and organizing my apartment. In fact my apartment is a disaster area and needs to be cleaned then organized. When it comes to cleaning my apartment, I tend to put it off. That is why I plan to schedule two to three times a week to clean my apartment. Hopefully it will be done by the end of the year so I can start January on a good note.

Speaking of January, I have awesome news. Yesterday (Monday) I got a call from a future employer offering me a job a Peer Specialist. I, of course accepted it and informed my new employer that I will need to put in notice at my current employer and will be out of town at the end of December. My new employer informed me that would be a “perfect time to start.” In fact my new future employer happens to be an a employer I use to work at. In fact this employer gave me my first job in the mental health field and was able to get my foot in the door at this employer.

As far as my current employer they are sad to see me go but they understand especially since my current employer is only twelve hours a week while my new employer is full time. Of course I will be earning more money an hour at my new employer. I will be making eleven dollars more an hour at my new job than I do at my current job.

Now on to me making new self improvement changes in my life. One think I will be doing sounds a bit nutty and crazy is doing mathematics on my own and not through a college course. The book I am starting out at is Basic Math and Pre Algebra for Dummies. I know it sounds a little silly and nutty but I want to be able to do basic math. I do plan on setting out a schedule when I do math as consistently as possible with a schedule you will retain and learn more.

I know I have mentioned this before but I am going to get into Tarot Cards and journaling. I keep starting up learning about Tarot Cards and then stop for some reason. I really want to get into Tarot because I feel like it will help me guide my life in the right direction and well as help me with my mental health recovery.

Speaking of my mental health recovery, my cat Billie does a wonderful job with helping with my recovery. Not only does he help my recovery, volunteering at PAWS Cat City every week helps with my recovery. I love volunteering at PAWS Cat City and I love my cat Billie even more.

Another way changes are on the way for both my creative side and my recovery is to do some crafting like crossing stitching and latch hook as well as art work such as painting and coloring. I feel like crafting and artwork keep me grounded and help with my recovery. I will also start trying a new type of art for me called diamond art a friend informed me about.

I do not have much more to discuss 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 wasn’t for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. Again thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Happy Holidays and Peace Out, World!!!

Another Night Sleepless In Seattle

Good Morning, World from Seattle. It is just barely after three o’clock in the morning here in Seattle. I am extremely tired and it is the second night in a row where I haven’t slept very well. Tonight, I kept busy in hopes to get tired enough to go to sleep. Of course cuddling with my cat, Billie was a great help with my anxiety about not being able to sleep.

So, I started out with cross stitching. I am doing a stamped crossing stitching so I can learn and hopefully move on to counted cross stitching. I am crossing stitching a cat. I love cats. It’s a complicated stamped cross stitch but I’m okay with that. I am looking forward to the challenge of this stamped cross stitching cat. It is going to be beautiful when it is done. The next thing I did was painting by number. I am doing a scenery of a mountain and a lake. It’s coming right a long. The painting is nice and relaxing. I then colored a mandala. Mandala’s are a way to bring calm and peace to me. After doing my arts and crafts stuff, I started reading a holiday book. Actually it is a Christmas book. The book is called ” The Paper Bag Christmas” by Kevin Alan Milne. So far the book is good. After reading I did about a chapter of math in “Basic Math and Pre Algebra for Dummies.” Doing all this has helped me become hopefully tired enough to get some sleep.

I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading blog. Good Night, Happy Holidays and Peace Out, World!!!

Just Another Rambling Post

Good Evening, World!!! It has been one of those days where I was not exactly feeling well. By not feeling well I mean I had a slight depression mode most of today. I am not one hundred percent sure why but I know the lack of sleep played some part of the mild depression today. Thankfully, I am feeling better now and my cat, Billie helped me a lot to feel better.

Over the last few days I ordered some stuff from Amazon. I ordered mostly crafting and art stuff. I did order other stuff but that is for another post. Now back on to the art and crafty stuff. I ordered painting stuff as well as coloring stuff. I also ordered cross stitching stuff. I also ordered this new type of art work called diamond painting. You don’t use paint, you use this little stick on stuff that is tiny as hell but looks like fun and challenging. So with everything I am getting from Amazon over the next several days, I know I will have a lot to do but first I need to clean my apartment.

Besides all the crafty and art stuff along with needing to clean my apartment, I have awesome news.If you been reading my blog on the regular basis you know I have a very part time job where I work twelve hours a week at four hours a shift for three days. Anyway I put in my resignation today because I got a full time job as a peer support specialist. Yes, I got a new job and I start in January. I am so very excited that I will be working as a peer specialist again.

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 the reader, read my blog. If it was not for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Happy Holidays and Peace Out, World!!!

Lazy Type of Day

Good Afternoon, World!!! It has been a lazy day. I started off the day reading the first two chapters of a holiday book when I woke up this morning with my cat Billie on my lap as I was sipping some hot teat. I started getting a little sleeping from reading even though the book appears to be so far so good in the first two chapter.

On that note I really did not want to go back to sleep and take a nap since I had already just woken up from a good night sleep. I decided to buy some stuff off of Amazon. Mostly, I purchased artsy and crafty and stuff with one exception of more tarot cards and a beginners guide to the beginners guide to tarot cards and guides. I have course will spend the rest of the day with my cat, Billie. Not sure if I will continue to read or end up watching movies.

As far as tomorrow goes, I plan on volunteering at PAWS Cat City. Of course when I get home, I will spend time with Billie. After that I will do some much need house hold chores of cleaning my apartment. So, tomorrow is going to be my chore day.

I do not have much more to say for this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. Happy Holidays and Peace Out, World!!!

No Job Equals No Money

Good Evening, World!!! Actually it is almost past evening as it is just after eight in the evening Seattle time. I’m worried that if I don’t get a job soon that I won’t be able to pay my rent. I just don’t want to lose my subidized housing. I keep keeping interviews but no jobs. I hope that when you read my blog that you press on the advertisements on my blog. It gives me a couple cents here and there but once it hits at least $100 or more I get the money. So it would be greatly appreciatedi if you can pres on my advertisements.

I’m also creating some crafting and artsy stuff to sell to help pay the bills. I hope you can help me with at least clicking the advertisements to help me with money. I need to get at least one underdred dollars for the advertisements.

I am still looking for a job and it’s geting frustrating that I am a “good” candidate but never the one they choose which suck shit.

On that note music, volunteering and educating myself is helping me keep me busy.Leaning new things is always a good thing.

I beg of you pressing my advertizements to help me earn money.

Thanks for reading my blog.

Still Awake Early on a Saturday

Good Morning, World!!! It is now 6:03 in the morning in Seattle. As I stated in my last post I was doing some math. I realized I didn’t have the most up to date Books for Dummies when it comes to Basic Math and Pre Alegerbra so I ordered the most updated one. In fact the last few days, I’ve ordered a hand full of Books for Dummies on various subjects. I’m doing this at forty plus years old because I want to know my shit even if I might not have someone to discuss it with. Just knowing that I know something is satisfying enough for me even if I want to discuss it with other people.

I hope next week I will start my education with the Books for Dummies. I just really want to do something productive in my spare time especially since I am currently unemployed. In fact I hope to continue to do it in my spare time when I do finally get some work.

Other things I hope to do in my spare time might have to wait till I get a job like getting back into the comic book world because he needs lots of money for that. In fact it is a hobby I haven’t done in a while due to Covid-19 which sucked. On that not other hobbies I have continued to do on and off is art work by way of coloring and painting. I’ve also occasionally done stamped cross stitch and will get more into it so I can do counted cross stitch. Something that I am now just picking up and teaching myself to do latch hook. You can do pillows, rugs, mats to wipe your feet on at the front door and other such things.

On that note, 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 read my blog. If it was not for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. So, thank you again from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

A Day of Taking Care of Billie and Myself

Good Evening, World!!! The day started off with taking my cat Billie for a second follow up appointment for dental surgery he had a few weeks ago. Everything appears to be healing just find and dandy. I personally think that is a good thing.

When I got home I ordered my educational books to learn from because I am learning a great deal from the Basic Math and Pre-Algerbra for dummies book. I figured the more I learn educational wise, I can hold better and more educational conversations.

As for the hobby stuff it is starting to get me frustrtated and hilll work on the ones I want to donate to PAWS for a fundraiser next year instead of this year since I started a little late. I am start to do stamped cross stitch as well. I am hoping that not only can I donate my crafts to help non profit make money but also hope to make money of my own as well.

As far as employment goes, I am still unemployed but I am applying for jobs and getting interviews. Still waiting to hear back to see if I get a job. Some I have received the job which sucks but I am hopeful to get a job soon even if it is not in the field I want to be in.

My cat has beeen by my side most of the day and extra cuddling. I love my cat and he love laying in the sun. He has been playing a lot today with his wand toy and loving the catnip.

I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. If it wasn’t for you the reader, reading my blog I would not be writing my blog. Thank you again for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Day of Creativity & Time w/My Cat, Billie

Happy Tuesday after a three day weekend here in the United States for most people due to Labor day. Billie appears to be in an active mood. I hope this means good luck for my job interview tomorrow. If I get it it willl be three four hour shift. I just hope I don’t get stuck with an over night shift which 12 hours long and can have up to three of those shift. I might do one evey once in a while and very rarely like an emergency.

Tooday, I am hanging out with Billlie and play with him in between learning new crafting skills of latch hooking. I am not getting it today being extra cuddly and playful. I so love my creative times when Billlie tries to help.

I should practice on my interview tomorrow as well as play with Billie. I also want to practice on my creativity project. Have a great Teuesday everyone.

Middle of the Night Ramblings

Happy Middle of the Night World or at least it here in Seattle. I ordered some crafting stuff from Amazon. Specifically, I ordered Latch Hook crafting. Not sure how well, I’ll do at it but its worth trying. I am getting impatient for them to arrive even though I order most of them yesterday (Monday, September 5th) and some will arrive sometime today, September 6th.

I’m hoping that I can finish two or three to donate to a local animal shelter to action off during a fundraising event. Not sure how they will turn out but I would love to help in anyway I can and learn a new craft while doing it.

Another thing I hope doing Latch Hook can help improve my depression and PTSD as well as my other mental health diagnosis and symptoms. I really wish I wasn’t laid off as it would be helpful for my mental health symptom.

As far as my cat, Billie, he has been attached to me today. I think he is picking up on my anxiety. I love my cat so much and how he knows when to comfort me..

I want to thank you for ready blog. I don’t have much more to say. Just thank you for reading my blog..

Unemployment Sucks; Family & Friends Rock

Good Afternoon, World!!! It’s evening time here in Seattle and I am feeling a little depressed while dealing with some PTSD. I have been sleeping off and on all day due to the depression and PTSD. Personally, I think being unemployed is was is helping the depression a little bit. I really need a job to help keep myself busy which help with the symptoms of my mental health diagnosis.

On the plus side when I haven’t been sleeping most of the day family and friends have been checking up on me. Some of my friends and neighbors have been feeding me. My grandpa gave me money to buy some art and crafting supplies to keep myself busy and hopefully awake during the day. So, I got some coloring stuff like colored pencils and markers as well as some of those giant and detailed coloring posters. I also got some crafting stuff as well. I got some latch hook crafting. I’ve never done latch hook so I want to try something knew and who knows I might have some done before the holidays to give as gift. Of course 98% of the latch hook stuff I’m get to make happen to be cats which isn’t surprising since I own a cat. Actually, I feel like my cat is more like a family member that me owning him.

As far as the unemployment part of life they are being challenging right now. I am on the job hunt and applying for jobs and getting interviews. It’s just the waiting game on hearing back if I’m going to get an interview or a job. Patience is not my virture.

I don’t have much else to say except my cat Billie is wanting to sit on my lap and my laptop is getting in his way. Thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you 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!!!
