Well, it’s that time again. My annual year-end review where I talk about the interesting things that have happened over the year. I wish I had more interesting or good things to talk about but the truth is this has been a very trying and stressful year.
In March I my sister and I moved in together. It was bitter sweet because out mother’s house was a safe haven for me. It’s difficult to explain but, I didn’t feel like I had to watch everything I do. Right now, we are renting a house that someone else owns. I feel like I have to be as delicate as I can because I don’t want to mess anything up. It’s like when you’re around someone that is a little on the crazy side and you’re trying your best not to tick them off, so you walk on egg shells around them. That’s pretty much how it feels right now. I hate having that feeling. I need to be in my own place.
I was laid off from my job. Been job searching and haven’t had much luck. I do have 2 opportunities I am exploring but they are not stable situations; in my opinion. I have signed up to become a substitute teacher. The thing about that, it’s not an everyday thing. There is no guarantee that you will have a job on any given day. Not only that, but there are hundreds of other people in the system that is looking for a job to do that day. That’s why I say that is not a stable situation. Also, in September I mentioned I was studying to get certified for teaching English 6-12, well, I took the test in October and got my results back in November and……………. I did not pass. I hate the word failed because it sounds a lot harsher than “did not pass”. Yep, all that studying and hard work and nothing; I am taking a break from that because it was so draining for me. I don’t know what I am going to do about that because it’s really been a lot on me.
Something good that’s happened to me; I finally got my Etsy shop up and running and I had 6 sales this year. It’s not the greatest number but it’s getting there. I’m thinking positive for more sales in 2015.
I don’t know what 2015 will bring for me. I feel like I’ve been in a never ending loop since 2012 that I can’t seem to figure out or get off. I’m trying to think positive about 2015, but then again I tried to think positive about this year. I guess I just have to go day by day. Hoping things get better.
Be safe everyone.
