• Jobless and Feeling Stuck

    Recently I’ve been meeting new people on a weekly basis, usually friends of friends, and introducing myself has been interesting and somewhat humbling/embarrassing, if I would say so myself. At least when I was still living on the east coast I could say something a little bit “fancy” when I told people I worked in quality assurance and then described what it was exactly that I did at work. Being unemployed is different, because it’s not so cool to make an unimpressive first impression. So what I’ve been telling people is, “I’m in transition right now. I was working in Boston but then I decided to move back to LA…

  • Getting Out of My Comfort Zone

    I was inspired to write a little bit about the benefits of getting out of your comfort zone. In order to get out of your COMFORT zone, you need to do something that makes you UNCOMFORTABLE. That’s pretty much all there is to it. Easier said than done, right? Yes and no.

That bed you’re supposed to make every morning when you get up. No time to text friends and loved ones. No time for FaceTime. No time for exercise. No time for fill in the blank. I’m still working through this dilemma as I write this post, hoping that writing a little about it will somehow make manifest a hidden truth in me that I haven’t found the words for. So I was just now diligently working on writing a cover letter…

  • When you don’t want to write a new blogpost

    The best time to write a blogpost is when you don’t want to write one. That’s me right now. I don’t want to write a blogpost because my day has been pretty crappy to say the least. In times like these it’s easy to drown in all the negative thoughts and feelings until all you can do is lay in bed, unmotivated, wanting to do absolutely nothing. Today happens to be one of those days. I also believe there is some monthly female hormonal cycle influence going on here.. The thing that I guess saved me is my phone. There are times when you reach a point where you can’t…
