I’ve had far too many of the people that are supposed to help me tell me to sit and wait. Not on everything, but on the things that would actually get me employed sooner rather than waiting for months. Sitting around collecting a cheque that doesn’t cover half of your expenses isn’t how to get back to a place of prosperity or ensure you don’t become homeless.
It takes real action.
So while waiting for the possibility that some company may eventually call me for an interview, I’m done sitting around in the interim. I’ve signed up for some flexible work doing deliveries. I’m done listening to fear-mongering about self-employment. Now I’m waiting to be approved to start.
And while that is happening, I’ve been creating myself a schedule that includes blocked off writing time. I edited two chapters today.
Tomorrow I meet with my job coach and Wednesday I meet with a recruiter who searched me out online because of my writing accomplishments.
I’m also tired of sitting in general. When I can afford it, I’m going to get a small work out device like a stepper with a handlebar to be active while I watch movies. I’m sitting too much and my glutes are suffering. Because my quads are stronger than my glutes, my body is a little off kilter.
I’m going to get in touch with some people about my feature film script too. I have a place to send my one-pager and a martial arts contact was interested in reading the screenplay because he’s a filmmaker.
Other than that, I have some research and cold calls to make for my internship. I also have some other tasks for another recruiter.
I feel better than I’ve felt in a long time.
