Smack Down

2016. God. What a ridiculous year it has been. It just feels all down hill.

I just dug myself a deeper hole throughout the first half of the year, job wise and finances. I lost my dad to cancer last month. The day after his memorial, I lost my job of six years the other day due to the company down sizing. So now, I am unemployed. I never imagined this in a million years. So yeah. I don’t know what to do. I know enough that I can’t simply just let this blow over or just find another restaurant job and let it slide.

But I found a restaurant job. Two, in fact. Full time as a cook with a wee bit of serving on the side and part time as a server at another place. Or bartending if the other job comes through. But yeah. I found some employment. Gonna pursue the options of going back to school in the next few months, either for another career or researching teaching. Many people tell me that they could see me as an English teacher, well some people, but they could see me teaching. So, working two jobs again for the first time in 3 years and researching going back to school, again, the first time in four years.

It’s been a real roller coaster ride this year. I don’t know what the future holds. I start the cook job Tuesday, the other part time job, whatever it is, later this week.

I don’t know. I write. I have trouble sleeping. I am trying to clean. I am just trying to take care of everything. Things will work themselves out eventually.
