Full Time Blogger

I have an announcement to make – I am now I full time blogger! (I am obviously trying to look on the bright side of things.)  I am definitely bummed about my job (or lack thereof), but I am moving forward and not going to dwell on it. In addition to blogging I will be writing for some other sites and doing freelance work. Oh, and looking for another full time job! I already wrote out a schedule for myself so I don’t waste any time being productive.

I really really appreciate all your kind comments. You are helping me stay positive :) Thank you.

When I got home I talked it out with a friend over a walk. Then, I got back home and chewed a pack of gum. I’m currently on my second pack. At least it’s not cigarettes.IMG_2474

My afternoon snack was yogurt, a whole mango, pineapple and cereal. I added a scoop of cottage cheese after the pic. I think I am starting to like cottage cheese more than yogurt. That’s good because I bought another Costco tub of it!IMG_2469

I considered slacking off for dinner and ordering a pizza to drown my sorrows, but I didn’t. I made eggplant and chickpea pasta. I cooked up a whole eggplant with a can of tomato sauce and a can of tomatoes (with the juice) plus garlic and spices. Then, added tempeh and chickpeas – served on top of whole wheat pasta. I love tomato based sauces!IMG_2471

Now I am enjoying a pineapple juice and Malibu Rum adult beverage – I deserve a drink tonight, don’t you think?IMG_2473Thanks again for the support :) Hope you’re having a better day than me!

    You totally deserve a drink. (I’m possiblymaybe on twitter by the way, if you are wondering who I am)

    I write a schedule for myself every day now too. it really does help. I’m the kind of person who goes nuts if I’m not constantly busy so I need the schedule!

    Yay for being a full time blogger! Looking on the positive side of things always makes things so much better!
    Yes to deserving a drink! (Drink an extra one for my underage self?) Make sure not to get sick though. That’s never fun :(

    I was bummed when I saw your tweet this morning! I am happy to hear that you have a upbeat attitude! Keep your chin up and I’ll keep the photos of your old stomping grounds coming your way!

    You are so positive! It’s really nice to hear :) Best wishes on the job search I am sure with an attitude like that it should be no problem.

    Yes, you totally deserved that drink. Sorry to hear about your job.
    But, I strongly believe that for every door that closes, a new one will open… so, good luck with the job hunt, I’m sure you’ll rock something very soon!

    I missed the big announcement yesterday. I’m sorry. But it sounds as if it may have been necessary to find a new job anyway. That’s awful that you paychecks were so late! Good luck….you’ll be just fine because you have such a great attitude!

    Way to look on the bright side! I think if anyone could make a comfortable living by themselves as just a blogger, I’d tie them up, throw them in their closet and resume their life as them

    You’re awesome and inspiring! I hope you find lots of fun blogging opportunites and don’t have to go back to a boring 9-5. You’re too fun for that! Good luck!
