Good News About New Job

Good Evening, World!!! I found out that I start my new job on June 11th. I am happy that will be working with those who have lived experience with mental health challenges and mental illness. The best part of the job is I get to work with people in crisis as well as well as doing groups and individual individually talking with other people such as professionals, friends and friends.

In fact I am looking forward to the new job. I may not like the public frans;artion. Public transportation from the U-District to Everette is long route.

Weekly Check-In

Good Evening, World. It is Saturday which mean its weekly check-in time even though I haven’t done one in a few weeks. I have had many up and downs this week. If you have been reading my blog regularly I got laid off and my last day was Friday, June 3rd, 2022. Which put be in a depression that sent me into the Emergency Room for psych reasons. Thankfully I was not hospitalized.

Monday of this week I had an interview for a peer specialist job. If I wouldn’t have been discharged from the Emergency Room for psych reasons I wouldn’t have received the call on Wednesday to accept the job I had interviewed for on Monday. My orientation is on Monday, June 20th and my first day of training is on Monday, June 27th.

Sadly, I found out on Thursday, June 9th that my mom has lung cancer and test are still being done. They don’t know if how severe it is as her memory is sadly going down hill. The doctors need to do a MRI to see if there are any unusual spots on her brain and if so is it able to do an operation on the possible brain tumor which would have spread due to the Lung cancer. They will able deal with the lung cancer and take out the spot so that’s a good thing. If it turns out there is no spot on her brain when get gets the MRI, it could mean she could have dementia or Alzheimer’s. As much as I don’t want my mom to have Alzheimer’s. or dementia, I would rather haver her have that than a brain tumor due to her lung cancer.

Going on to a better subject, Seattle had a beautiful day. I was able enjoy the Sunny is Seattle day with my cat Billie Dean. Billie was actually brave enough to be outside on his harness and leash for ten minutes. He spent thirty minutes walking around inside my apartment building. We both got are steps in today.

I do not have much more to say in this particular post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated that you read my blog from my perspective. 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.. Peace Out, World!!!

A Rollercoaster of the Last Few Days

Good Evening, World. Today has been a rollercoaster of a day. Lets start with the good news. I had an interview on Monday an was offered the job yesterday (Wednesday) that I got the job. I am looking forward to the new job that I start June 27th of this month. I have mixed feelings with this job but at least I’ll have employment starting the end of the month.

On that note my mom’s health hast been the best and have forgetting things a lot and usually remembers everything. My mom’s breathing has been getting worse so long story short the found a spot on her lung. It’s been made official she has lung cancer but need more test to be done see what stage it is in. The doctors need to do more test including removing the spot on her lung. She will be having more test including an MRI for her head due to her forgetfulness which is unlike my mom. If they find something in her brain that it is not suppose to be there not only will she have surgery on the removing the spot if find one if it safe enough to do it as the brain is very fragile. I will keep you updated about my mom when test results come in.

I’m just glad that I have the support of my friends, family and of course my cat Billie. Today has been a tough day and Billie has be helpful.

Than you for reading my blog. I hope you can give out positive energy and vibes for my mom. I love her so much. Again thank you for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Manic Monday

Good Evening, World from Seattle, Washington. Today has been a Manic Monday for me. First I had to get up early and take an hour and a half bus ride for a job interview. Not sure how it went but if I didn’t get it, I would not be disappointed. So as of right now I a still unemployment, Not liking the fact I’m not working but it’s a way of things.

On to other things I’m glad I brought a book with me as it took me two hours from my job interview to my doctors office via public transportation just like getting to my job interview. I took book to read on the bus as well as I waited for my job interview and my doctor. Thankfully everything was on time today but I got a lot of reading done in my science fiction book.

When I got home, Billie my cat was thrilled to see me. I cuddled with him as I read more of my book. Reading appears to be helping me right now as it helps me now focus on the reality of what is going on in my world and the rest of the world.

I do not have much more to say in thing particular blog post. Thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you the reader read my 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. Peace Out, World!!!

A Stress Free Sunday

Good Evening, World!!! It is eight o’clock in the evening here in Seattle. If you read my blog on the regular basis you know that I have been laid of as of this past Friday (June 3rd). Yesterday I was stressing a little bit but realized the stress knowing I was being laid off is not long a stress at least at the moment. It has been a stress free Sunday and feel great to be stress free. The last three months at my now previous employ caused my anxiety and depression symptom increase. Now that everything is done now with the lay offs it is like the lift has been lifted.

On that note I volunteered today and as PAWS Cat City and that help immensely. I’m happy that volunteer at Cat City because it is a form of self care for me just like my own cat Billie is a source to help with my stress. It appears that animals help a great deal. I am grateful for my cat Billie and and my volunteer job at Cot City.

On a good note I have a job interview tomorrow. I am nervous as hell but at least if I don’t get the job I have the practice of the job interview. Send good juju, energy, vibes or any thing good my way when it comes to my job interview tomorrow (Monday).

I don’t have much 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. It 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. Peace Out, World!!!

Good Sleep Turned into Not so Good Sleep

Well, Fucking Good Morning, World!!! I was surprisingly having a good night considering my last official day of work was yesterday (Friday). Considering it was emotional day, I wasn’t expecting a good night sleep till three of my neighbors got in an extremely loud scream match at three thirty in the morning. It almost got physical at one point in time. It is now four forty five in the morning and the Seattle police showed up to the screaming match that was already lasted an hour at four thirty five in the morning Seattle time. Needless to say my neighbors on my floor and myself aren’t exactly happy with the screaming neighbor and the lack of response from the Seattle Police Deportment.

It reality I was hoping my good night sleep wouldn’t have been interrupted due to the fact yesterday (Friday) was my final day at work due to lay offs. A good night sleep for me after a traumatic event of being laid off would have been good for my mental health symptoms. Right now is a time to reflect on a job I loved a sadly got laid off from. A job that turned into a dream job for me.

On the bright spot I have my cat, Billie sleeping with me which is a comfort in itself. Having Billie around going to my therapist has helped me get through the last three months of know I was and now officially laid off.

On the great news front I have three interviews next week. Two of the three sound promising. I am telling future employs that I would need two week in between my end date at my now former employer and starting a new job and everyone appeared to be okay with that considering how traumatizing the lay off process was for everyone involved.

It’s not five o’clock in the morning and the cops are at my door wanting to know what I heard and saw from the screaming neighbors. So, I need to get going. I hope everyone has a good restful weekend and a Happy Saturday. Peace Out, World

A Mid Afternoon Blog

Good Afternoon, World!!! So far my day is going well and am grateful tomorrow is holiday where I live so it’s a three day weekend. Also on that note my last week at work due to layoffs is only a four day week instead four day week. It is going to be an emotional week but i know I have the support from others.

It being a soggy Sunday in in Seattle, I am mostly staying home reading a book on Star Wars. I also volunteered at PAWS Cat City. Spending time volunteering with cats is so much fun. Another fun thing i get to do is spend the rest of my day with my cat Billie as I read a Star Wars book. I love my cat, I love reading and I love Star Wars.

Now, I am waiting on Grubhub to deliver my late lunch. I ordered my favorite burger which it the Whiskey River Bar-Be-Que burger. It is a good day in Seattle to order in as it’s raining here in Seattle and not the typical drizzle Seattle get.

After I get my food and eating it, I am going to go back to reading the Star Wars book I am reading with Billie, my cat, by my side. It’s great day to just do a do nothing type of day.

I don’t have much more to sat in this particular blog post. I just want to thank you for reading my blog. It means the world to me that you read my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Just Realized I Have a Four Day Weekend

Hello World!!! I am just realizing that I have a four day weekend ahead of me because I forgot it was Memorial Day weekend so I am taking tomorrow (Friday) off to go to a four hour training that will help me with my chosen career. I also made a doctors appointment for tomorrow to follow up on some health care needs that I need to be taken care of.

First of all want to pay tribute to those who served in the military and paid the ultimate price for our country; death. They helped keep our freedoms and am grateful for their ultimate sacrifice.

Not on to some sad news that client of mine from work died by suicide. This was a shocker as this client worked really hard with their recover from depression and other stuff. This client is an inspiration to me in regards to keeping on the recovery path. I can not say more as I could be breaking the HIPAA Law. I am just sad that their depression got the better of them. At least they are no longer suffering.

On Saturday, I am going to go visit family and have some meals with them. It is always nice to spend time with family especially my grandpa. I love my grandpa so much. My grandpa is my hero.

On Sunday I will be volunteering at PAWS Cat City. I love volunteering with animals specifically. I look forward to Sunday mornings when I get some time with more kitties.

On Monday as well as other days when I have the time I will be reading a book. Not jut ay book but a Star Wars book. I love Star Wars and I love to read. I am really looking forward to this four day weekend.

Before I forget I will be spending time reading with my cat Billie which makes this weekend a good one.

On that note I don’t have much more to stay in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciate from my end that you the reader, read my blog. If it was not for you my reader reading my blog I would not be writing my blog. So thank you from the bottom of reading my blog. Peace Out World!!!

Not Sure How to Title this Post

Good Evening, World!!! Not sure how to write this post as I have a lot to say but due to some legal stuff through like signing legal documentation about my lay off date as well as bad new about a client and due to HIPAA laws can’t disc close that. It’s hard to believe I have a week and half at my current employer. I’m sad that I am getting laid off especially from a job love.

On a good not I have job interview on June 6th and looking forward to it. If I get I hired, I don’t think I would like the commute since I will have to take public transportation which will take a while or take a LYFT which is expensive. I hope I get the job be I’m not holding my breath or counting my chickens at this point in time.

I think I will spend the rest of the day hanging out with my cat Billie reading a Star Wars book. Yes, I do like Star Wars. I’ve seen all he movie thus far not my goal is read all the Star Wars books. I know it’s weird but I need something to do as I apply for job, wait for interview and hope I get a job.

I don’t have much to say in this particular post. 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. So, again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. It means a lot to me that you do.

The Very Little Things I Did Being Home Sick

Good Evening, World!!! If you read my last post you would know I stayed home sick. I have done very little to day. I did spend a lot of time cuddling with my cat Billie especially when I was reading. I read a few chapter in Ship of Magic by Robin Hobb. So far I am enjoying it. I’ve also been reading Wonder Woman comic books.

I’ve been reading when I have not been sleeping. I hope I am able to go to work tomorrow especially since I only have two week left before my lay off date. I really don’t like sleeping during the day because I am afraid I might not sleep at night.

I don’t have anything else to say except I need to eat dinner and then cuddle with my cat Billie again. Thank you for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!
