2010 was a mixed bag for me. I had some great times including the play that I was in, some new ideas for my church, blogging on blogger for the first time and writing a devotional for my church. Yet, I had some struggles with finances (they stink!) and had a new manager a few days ago. I have not figured out how to sell any of my pictures. I had hoped that I'd find a way to start working on that for 2010. I had hoped that my finances would get better in 2010 but I didn't look for a second job or a different job. I still don't want to try to do to jobs because i find one job to be stressful. How could my little brain handle two jobs when I find one sometimes overwhelms my little brain at times? I don't even know what type of job that I would like. I love to write, draw, and perform in public but can't handle almost any confrontation from others. I like activity and variety at work but struggle when i feel out of control at work. I hate when there is problem that I can't do anything about because it is someone else issue such as pictures that never got to my store, prices that are too high... I really don't want to try for retail again. I would rather work in human services but I suspect that there isn't many jobs out there for that. I know that my local food pantry is ran with a small staff and volunteers. If one can get a volunteer to do something, why would they want to hire someone like me?
What are my hopes for 2011? I hope to figure out how to start a lay counseling ministry. I know of one place that does this and hope to visit to learn more on how they started it and how they handle certain potential ethical issue that was mentioned in my human services courses.
I hope to reduce the amount of money that I am taking out of savings. I am trying to get a little bit of financial assistance to help in this area. I might try to get a different job but I want to be able to spend time on church stuff and maybe another series of plays. I might audition later this month for one that plays in March.
I hope to loss weight but I haven't been doing that much lately. I am hoping to get back to it.
