I’m desperate and unemployed

Hello, welcome back! Well, I know it’s been a while. Life has been… crazy, to say the least, and I’ve come here to share with you guys what’s been happening to me lately.

First, I’m unemployed and I’ve been trying to find a job that’ll allow me to keep going to college, but that proved to be a pain in the ass. So there’s that.  Then there is my country, that’s heading in the wrong direction and it’s very hard to find a job and keep it. Also, it’s very hard to survive with my savings because the prices are going through the roof!

Also, there’s this blog that I always keep in my mind and I always find myself trying to write something, but I have to be honest with you. Even writing this is proving to be the hardest thing on earth, I think I have a subtle case of writer’s block.

I’m trying to write, but I have to be honest, I find myself trying to write something and then leaving it as a draft because I think it needs a lot more to be published. I know I said I wasn’t going to be so hard on myself, but whatever those things on my drafts are, they are ANYTHING but publishable.

I’m trying to find a job, like ANY job, even as a writer or as a translator, but I guess I’m out of luck. I’ll keep looking, maybe I’ll get lucky soon enough. I really hope things look up anytime now. I’m trying to be optimistic about things but I have been feeling a little blue a depressed lately. It’s just that my actual situation is bringing me down. Luckily I have my boyfriend with me that offered to help me, but I don’t want that. I want to be able to pay for my own things, to earn my own money and I don’t want to owe anything to anyone.

Anyway, this is me, trying to let you guys know what I’ve been up to and that I’m still alive. I’ll try to keep you post it, maybe try to write something non-job-search related. But I can’t promise you anything.

Thank you so much for taking your time to read this. I really really appreciate it. Thank you so much for letting me be part of your life, at least from time to time. I would love to know, in the comment section down below if you’ve ever faced a situation like this in your past and what did you do to feel better when you thought that there was no way out of it? I love reading comments and I always try to answer them!

I hope I see you next time… bye!

 

I’M BACK! Did you miss me?

Hello! I know, I know, it’s been a while… again. Yes, again. Actually, I’m getting pretty tired of having to write these same things every time I’m out of business for a while. But what can I do, I guess I’ll have to try to be consistent with my writing. I guess I could try that.

I know I haven’t been posting a lot this month; it’s just that I’ve been going through a lot of changes and a lot of new things.

Besides from being a Biology student, getting my masters and living by myself; I have also gotten an internship in a laboratory and I’ve had surgery on my left hand. All those things are making it hard to adjust and I’ve fallen behind schedule.

I’m trying to have a schedule up for October, but I can´t promise anything.

I’m going to try to make it up to you by answering  10 questions about myself that I found interesting, so I hope you like it and you get to know me a little bit more.

  • If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?

I guess I would write some more, I would use the time to work on my blog. I would also finish that online course I’m taking on web development. And I guess I should use that time to study for college, but I’m too tired of that.

  • What hobby would you get into if time and money weren’t an issue?

I’ll have to say scuba diving. I did it once and I loved it, I would like it to be a hobby.

  • What fictional place would you most like to go?

Oh, this is a good one. I would probably be killed by a monster or die from a bacterial infection but I would love to go to the Sengoku Jidai from Inuyasha.

  • What job would you be terrible at?

Mmmm… I guess I would be a terrible surgeon. I mean I almost fainted when I had to cut a dead frog open, so cutting a living human being? No thank you.  I would be fainting all the time!

  • If you could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, what would you have a good chance of winning a medal for?

Being organized and achieving a lot of stuff on a day. Also probably binge-watching a lot of TV shows and remembering little details and characters’ names.

  • What job do you think you would be really good at?

I’ll guess I would be a really good wedding planner. But I’ll be so stressed and I wouldn’t want to deal with crazy brides so… no, thank you.

  • What are some small things that make your day better?

A perfect weather, waking up next to my boyfriend and having some extra time to talk a little, cuddling with my cats… all those sorts of things.

  • When people come to you for help what do they usually want help with?

Relationship issues.  Personal issues. I’m the type of girl you come to when you need help figuring something out. I’ll listen to you and we’ll talk a lot until you feel better.

  • What’s something you like to do the old-fashioned way?

Making a to-do list. As I wrote in my previous post (here) I like to write things down, I don’t like using apps to keep track of all the things I have to do. I need to write them down and cross them out once I’ve done them.

  • What are you most looking forward in the next ten years?

To everything changing. Everything is going to change and I can’t wait for that to happen. Maybe I’ll be living in a different country… I don’t know, but I guess you could say I’m ready.

Anyway, I guess that’s all for now. Did you like it? Do you want me to answer some more questions about myself? If so let me know in the comment section below! Anyway, like I said before I can’t promise you anything about being on schedule and I think I’ve lost all credibility but all I can say is that I’m going to try it.
