A quote to live by… Thank Anais Nin for being the shit. Seriously — go rent Henry and June.
I need to hustle. I need to find some sort of avenue to make some extra money. The blog isn’t really bringing it, though I should receive my first advertising check sometime this week. I think it is supposed to be for like… $20. I think I’ll go and get a pedicure with that money when it comes in. My feet are looking like man feet lately.
It’s an interesting thing — my exboyfriend, the sociopath, he had a bit of a foot fetish. Nothing terribly kinky, but he just loved it when my feet were soft and delicate and my toes were painted red. It was liberating when we broke up, to know that I could let them chip and be ugly… But that’s just what they are now — ugly. Buh.
Anyways, back to the point of this blog post. I’m trying to brainstorms ways in which I can make some extra money. At this point, my “full time” job is bringing me somewhere between 25-32 hours/week which is fine, I suppose. But not enough. Child support went down last month, as per our agreement. The boy child is no longer going to private school, so… Ergh.
Oh? And? My roommate is seriously late with rent this month. SERIOUSLY. Like… she’ll have it on the 15th. Buh.
I hate money. Hate it hate it hate it.
I’ve applied for a handful of part-time jobs at coffee shops around me, but the problem with a part time job is that they want at least 20-25 hours out of me. Since when is 25 hours a part time position? I mean, yea, clearly. It’s not full time, but it’s not part-time either. I don’t have ENOUGH availability for a part time job.
Anyway, I just need to quit being negative about it all. The money will come. The pressure will drop. Everything big happens in little moments. This is a little moment.
A few more Anais Nin quotes to send you on your merry way —
- Anxiety is love’s greatest killer. It makes others feel as you might when a drowning man holds on to you. You want to save him, but you know he will strangle you with his panic.
- How wrong it is for a woman to expect the man to build the world she wants, rather than to create it herself.
- Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country.
