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.
THEY BOTH CALLED TODAY AND OFFERED ME A JOB!
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!
**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!
