Not hired yet, financially struggling, remaining optimistic | Wed May 11, 2022

Sure, I’m still suffering financially from the financial setback of moving to a new residence. I emphasize that I’m suffering financially because I’m in a really optimistic mood.

I was fortunate enough to have the cash to cover the moving expenses. I sacrificed all of April‘s Turo Earnings and some of the March’s earnings as well. I’m not super bent out of shape about the money. It’s upsetting, but if alive money will be replenished.

I know that someone is going to hire me in June 2022. I’m calling it like a homerun. I come with a plethora of experience and skills i.e. I know my sh*t about a lot of sh*t. I’m valuable.

Why I’m not hired today? Who cares?! 😄 I will be hired by an organization with the work I want when I purposely pursue the job. I’m not worried that it [getting hiring] won’t happen. I’m not worried about the size of the paychecks I’ll earn.

I care about the work, and I care about making the best use of my skills. Any organization who is willing to lean into both of those needs is likely to be an organization who won’t make the mistake of undervaluing me.
