30 Apr

I have been submitting to jobs today. I really hope that I get one soon.

I will not give up. I have hope.

I am moving back to Los Angeles. I have been submitting to full-time jobs there. There is NOTHING for me in South Carolina except my mom and I cannot stay here just to be close to my mom.

I have decided where in Los Angeles I would like to live: Studio City near Universal Studios. I decided this because it s close to: several bus routes, Subway entrance, grocery store, pharmacy, and more.

I have to do something while I am still young. I am moving back to Los Angeles and I will begin my first career. I will get out and meet that right woman. I will not give up no matter what anyone thinks.

I will not let anyone put me down just because I am younger than them.

I have hope: I have faith: in Christ alone.

I have been submitting to job openings in Los Angeles with the hope of moving back there.

I hope to move to an area in Studio City close to Universal Studios, because it is close to several bus lines and an entrance to the Red Line Subway making it easy to get around.

It is also close to a grocery store and pharmacy. I also know the area somewhat.

I can use any and all help making this happen.

This week I was able to talk with a couple of people at The Hill about something. It was great being able to share with them and have them hear what I was saying. I have not been able to share what I shared with anyone before so it was great to have them to talk with.

I have too much debt from being a student. I owe a very large amount in student loans. Despite this I am hopeful that God will provide. My hope and faith is in God alone.

I need prayer.

I need to find a new place to fellowship on Sunday mornings. This after someone thought they knew more than they did. I mad a comment on FB and they thought they knew what it was about…

This time I hope to find somewhere to fellowship with people my age instead of older.

Still looking for a job in the Los Angeles area with the hope of moving there this year.

I have been submitting to job openings these past couple of weeks. I hope to find a job soon.

I need to find a job with benefits including relocation. I need a job that pays since I owe so much money for student loans. I need a 6 figure income.

I won a wooden soon and a wisk from Good Food.

I would like to meet the right woman. She has to be: no taller than me, smaller in body size than me, have a sense of humor, has to be smart, and I am not interested in older women.

I am interested in a job in Los Angeles area. I am also willing to relocate to UK or Ireland. I have a passport.

Change is happening, has happened, I have a new perspective. I pray that I will continue with this change.

Invisible: a book by Ginny L. Yttrup:

A book about an overweight woman.

I received a review copy of this book. I have read less than 30 pages. I wanted to finish reading it, maybe I will one day, but it lost my interest.

Each section is from the perspective of another character. I was unable to relate, connect, with any of the characters. I am still not certain what this book is about.

It is promoted as “Christian Fiction” but what does that mean?

Another marketing tool?

This book, written by an older woman, might be a great read for an older woman but it’s not for young adults.

Bread and Wine: a book by Shauna Niequist:

This book is a blend of journal and cook book.

Another book by an older woman, another book about food and another book labeled as “Christian”.

Both of these books are written for an older audience. If you are an older woman with children then you should read these books. You can relax and unwind to their easygoing narratives.

5 Apr

I have been watching the UK version, the original version, of the show “Shameless”. It’s a great and bizarre show. I have seen the first two seasons of the US version and the first 5 of the UK version.

My one hope is to become a TV writer. I would like to write for shows like: “Shameless”, “Breaking Bad”, Parenthood”, Modern Family”, “The Middle”…

I have a strong desire to live in Los Angeles again. I do not know what to do here. I prefer living in a city and the closest city is Atlanta.

I have applied to so many jobs over the past few years. I know that I am not hired in most instances because I do not live where the jobs are located, but I have applied to jobs located in this state that I am qualified for, they were not many, but I see no reason why I was not hired unless I am just not suppose to be here in this state.

I pray that God will provide a way for me to move where I am suppose to live.

I am still single. I would like to meet the right woman but I have not met her and I have not met many women that interest me.

I am tired of being single, but how do you meet an attractive woman when there are none in sight? I use POF.com but that is a waste of time. Most of the women lie about their age. I have seen profiles where women over 30 claim to be 18.

I have applied to several job openings including one at a summer camp. I do not know if I will get one of these, but all I can do is keep submitting.

I have reflected upon several things and I have found that it is not wise to listen to what certain people say since they are ignorant and what they say are lies. What does the Holy Spirit say? Shall I listen to God or man?

I owe so much money from being a student that I need a job with a six figure income and benefits.

My goal: television writer.

I am sick of negative people.
