What have I been doing? Part 2

Sunday, September 29, 2013

OK, I guess I caught you up on weight loss and exercise….so now I’ll fill you in on the rest of my life. (Or at least 2010-2012.) I lost yet another job. Outsourced to India. Again. *sigh*

At first it was good to have some time off. I’ve had a full-time job since I was 17. It was nice to get a break. Even before when my job had been outsourced I’d always had another one lined up. Not this time. I ended up being unemployed for over a year. Not as bad as some people have had it, I know, but not good. I began to start feeling useless, like I served no purpose. I applied for jobs everywhere, but had no luck.

My mother became concerned that I was getting depressed. I thought I was OK, but looking back I was retreating farther and farther into a dark place. So I sold off some of my stuff, sent a ton of things to the Salvation Army, and packed up what was left and moved back home to Mississippi.

Not long after that I got a job offer. It doesn’t pay much, but it has great benefits and I love my boss. I have health insurance again. I rented out my home in Memphis and am still living with my mother and stepfather. I’m back in school trying to figure out what career I want to try next. I started tutoring high school math and that led to a 2nd job teaching at a private school.

There’s a lot that happened, but I’ll spare you all the drama (lol). So, in a nutshell….working again, going to school, and left Memphis and living back at home with parents trying to save money.
