I gotta say…

Guys. I am having a good day and I just have to share what’s been going on.

I woke up grumpy this morning because I had a appointment with my therapist at 8 am! 8 AM!! Unemployed Sophia,who stayed awake until 4 am, was not happy about that. Nevertheless, I got up, got ready and drove to see my therapist. And I am so glad I did. We had some really great talks, revised my treatment plan, and I left feeling like I’m getting somewhere. I’m changing how I think of myself and how I think in general. It only took 5 months, but I’m seeing progress. I left feeling accomplished instead of my usual “this isn’t helping anything” feeling. And that, my friends,  is a great feeling.

On the way home I was beaming! Smile on my face, singing along to Nirvana, feeling great about life and then my phone rang. Who was it? A woman offering me a job. Ever since I moved to Indy in March, I’ve been looking for a job. I’ve sent out countless copies of my resume, filled out applications,  interviewed for a handful of jobs,  BUT no one wanted to hire me. What’s wrong with me!? :( I was getting down on myself and feeling pretty darn shitty. I, Sophia, have never interviewed for a job and not been offered the position, until now! Big blow to my self-esteem. But, I kept pressing on and searched even harder. Two weeks ago, I interviewed for 2 jobs. One as a 2 day a week nanny– Awesome pay, only 2 days a week, and 3 adorable kids.  It wouldn’t look that great on my resume, but pays well and allows me to have a lot of free time. Which I’ll need since I am taking 5 classes this semester. Second job is for a preschool teacher position-5 days a week guaranteed, lower pay, but it would look nice on my resume and I’d gain some experience.


Ahem. Yea. So, now I have to make a decision. It’s nice to have choices!  I’m leaning toward the nanny job. I need the extra time for school. Even though it’s only 2 days a week in pretty much ends up paying as much as the preschool position. Did I mention the free time?! Yea. Definitely going with the nanny job. I’ll have time to travel and study! I’m super excited, y’all!

Gonna have to agree with you there, Ice Cube.

**I know I’ve been yapping about my physical health and getting fit, but mental health is just as important or more important. Sometimes we neglect it. Take care of yourselves-mentally and physically!
