Hi! My name is Unemployed.

So… basically I don’t have a job. I’m pretty much unemployed at the moment. If I did have a job right now it would be: a job looking for jobs. Secondary responsibilities include feeling sorry for myself, cleaning random stuff in our apartment, and listening to Pandora.

Although times are tough, I am very thankful for the daily time I spend with Jesus in the morning and throughout my day, because in these moments I learn…

Three Little Words

Some days I wake up and the creativity just flows through me. It pulses and glows like neon, radioactive blood, changing everything it touches. And then there are days like today, when somehow I find myself at my desk at noon, wondering how I got here and what I’ve been doing for the last four hours. Those are the days that I’m just grateful I managed to wear pants. Wait I am wearing pants right? Oh good.

My brain has been a little twisted up the last couple days. I can’t quite figure…

Bereavement

My post of missing my mother who passed away earlier this year, wondering what happens in life after death.

Do not stand on my grave and weep.

I am not there. I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.

I am the diamond glints on snow.

I am sunlight on ripened…

A Candle in the Dark

I’ve been known to say that NYC is a place where dreams come true…but also a place where those dreams can be crushed into an unrecognizable dust. You have to be tough and relentless to make it here. But sometimes, your dreams can come true at the same time that you feel that you can’t go on. Every day, I walk into my office with the mindset of fighting to prove that I belong, because I know I deserve it. Every time I walk into class, I fight to prove to myself that this is the right choice…

Questions of Attraction

A few months ago, I read The Secret, by Rhonda Byrne. Because that’s what you do when you want something, especially when you’re unemployed and feel like you’ve tried everything. But like a lot of people, I had a bit of a hard time with it. It wasn’t because I was being too logical and couldn’t put my faith into this ethereal belief that you could get what you want simply by believing it’s yours. That of course crossed my mind. I’ve always had a hard time with faith without… Continue

On My Way

Ever since I started my self-imposed exile in my cheap by decidedly un-glamorous hometown, I’ve had one goal: get back. Ms. NYC is still calling my name and I fully intend to answer. Of course, my bank account thanks me for my decision and my body is looking better than ever with the increased gym time. I’ve caught up with old friends I haven’t seen since high school and spent some quality time with my mom. But let’s be honest, after the city’s hustle and bustle, bar hopping any day of the…

To be fearless, a resolution.

"To me, fearless is not the absence of fear. It's not being completely unafraid. to me, fearless is having fears. Fearless is having doubts. Lots of them. To me, fearless is living in spite of those things that scare you to death. Fearless is falling madly in love again, even though you've been hurt before. Fearless is getting back up and fighting for what you want over and over again...even though every time you've tried… Continue
