***This is a long overdue catch up post from August 2016 as a follow-up to My So-Called Life Right Now… re-read it for clarification***

Dear People Who Thought My Last Life Post Was Readable,
I’ve been using my free time away from job hunting to work on my fitness…
I almost have a six-pack.
Like in my fridge.
Since I’m broke, I’m sort of just collecting one at a time until I have a full set…it’s like Pokemon Go, “gotta catch ’em all!”
When I’m not sunning myself and hydrating, I’m practicing my teleportation skills. So far, I’ve only been able to move from the house to the yard. I have my sights and mind spidey powers set on Australia though since that seemed to be the last time I felt like life made sense. Stay tuned, I feel like a breakthrough isn’t too far…
The biggest goal I’d say I’ve accomplished this far into summer is…wait, I know there’s something…hold on, OH! Yep, still a tan. Mostly just a tan.
A highlight this summer has been driving 6 hours to my hometown to work at the boutique, yes that is how desperate times have gotten. I have to drive and spend over 1/3 of a long weekend’s pay on gas, thank you America.
The best part about all of this…my life is seriously amazing. STILL! Yes, I’m stressed and I just spent my last quarter on a gum ball to re-live my childhood because adulting is rough. BUT, I am always finding reasons to wake up happy and be SO damn grateful for everything I have. I challenge you: if you’re ever in a bind and money is tight (or non-existent) and you feel like you have nothing and you get wrapped up in or on the brink of that “woe is me” crap, it really helps to take your last bit of pride, a couple of dimes or dollars and pay them forward to someone who needs them even more than you do. Also, don’t forget to notice the amazing support system around you because let me tell you, if I didn’t have the people in my life that I do, I’d have already been working at an establishment in the strip club capital of everywhere.
Perspective is power, people…and I’ve gained a WHOLE lot of it this year.
More catch up posts to come…
Yours in laughter to hide the tears!
