So, seeing as it’s been six months since I started my blogging adventure, (well, six months and two days, to be exact) I thought I’d re-post the first official entry I wrote back in March. Really great memories I have of my blogging hobby thus far… it’s been a blast. Not sure how much I’ve improved or anything, but I guess it doesn’t matter because it’s really the journey that counts, right? But, this also means it has been six months since I stopped working… still miss that place. Though to be honest, it has been great having time to myself, time to explore this blogging hobby, time to catch up with friends, and time to just relax. You really learn a lot about yourself when you have this much time on your hands! Not to mention all the random useless stuff you learn… like all the details about the Brangelina split, for example. Speaking of, did you know that Angelina wants custody of all six kids?! Crazy, right? Anyways, back to the point! It’ s fun reading my old stuff, seeing how I would or could have done things differently. I do like this post though, as wordy as it is, it’s also pretty honest and open. I still really love that song too! Always applies to a lot of different situations in life!
Here comes the post:
“I have never forgotten a phrase that was part of the theme song of Saddle Club… I must have been around the age of 8 (possibly) when I first watched this old television show. “Hello world, this is me… ” were the first few words of the song, and for some reason, it has always stayed with me (video at the bottom of this post). I imagine I found it to be inspiring? But hey, I could be over-analyzing, and it is merely a catchy song. Either way, those very words are in my head today, during my very last shift at JFS.
Everyone keeps telling me how this is a “great opportunity”, or that “every time a door closes, another one opens..” and the list goes on with select other supportive comments and phrases. This is all very true, indeed. On the other side of this predicament, is the sad and frustrating fact that I am out of work. I no longer have somewhere to be four of out seven days of the week. I no longer have a steady income from this job. I no longer have coworkers… colleagues, what have you. All of this sad but realistic truth keeps coming back to me… can’t forget it. I have started the job search, applied for EI, said goodbye to fellow JFS-employees, and begun planning my next few days in order to keep busy… I have done all these necessary tasks. Regardless, I am continuously bothered by the thought that I do not know what comes next. I have had summer breaks between school years, short holidays from work and such, but never have I been in this situation of not knowing. It is most definitely this fact that scares me… the unknown. While this is terrifying, scary, and many other synonyms.. it is also slightly exciting I must admit. “The world is my oyster”, as they say… and the possibilities are in fact, endless. Hope that you all enjoy accompanying me on this adventure.”
Have you ever heard that song?
