Day 4: It could get boring September 24, 2009

So today was a rough day. I found out that I didn’t have to go into work today so I had the day to myself. Sure I got some things done, but for the most part it was boring.

Waiting for the job of your dreams may get boring, but don’t let that stop you from going. One suggestion I have is to find ways to do what you love. If you love to write, then keep a journal, go outside and write about a certain spot you visited or something you saw, maybe write a story. If you are like me and like to work with cameras then go outside and take some still shots or record yourself doing things like fake reporting or something of the sort. If you like working with you numbers then, well that’s not really my area of expertise so I’m not sure what you should do in your spare time.

However, it is good to have a few lazy days. I believe they are good for the health. You need days to get yourself organized, clean, read a book, etc.

Remember that you should always be looking for connections. You could find one on a website or just walking around your living area. You could run into by accident in the grocery store. But you should always have your eyes and ears open for people that may be able to help you.

Sorry that today’s lesson is kind of boring. It’s just a boring day. I also was just writing my article for the Orlando Examiner so I am bit tired in the writing department. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

 

Day 3: Do not get discouraged! September 23, 2009

So I haven’t heard anything from Mr. Ashe, the man I was told to send my resume to. I have decided to give it a week before emailing him again. But this lesson today is a good one. Discouragement.

I find that it is very easy to get discouraged. Now, more than ever, it is a good idea to teach ourselves to hold our heads high. Having and upbeat and positive attitude throughout your day, no matter what is going on, will help you have a positive attitude in all situations.

For example, today they asked me to come into work. Since I am broke and have lots of bills to pay I literally jumped out of bed, freshened up, packed lunch and headed to work. Now would be a good time to mention that I am sick with a nasty congestion. My voice comes and goes and I have coughing fits. It has made me tired and sometimes cranky. To put it simple, my couch and I have been good friends for the past few days. But I went to work anyway. I had to remind myself to stay positive and cheerful and so I did. Lots of other people were down, but I had already made up my mind to stay cheerful. Which is why the no response thing isn’t bothering me too much.

I have dedicated my night to watching youtube videos of my favorite Broadway singers, singing songs that you normally wouldn’t hear them sing.

Adam Pascal ~What I Did For Love

John Tartaglia ~ Disney Whore

etc.

I also got some cool news in the mail. I had sent away for information about Full Sail University. A University that specializes in show production, video production, film, video games, basically a school for creative arts and media. It is very interesting and I am considering going to see the campus. I am hoping that I can find a job that will help with tuition reimbursement and be able to go. It looks interesting.

I am dreading my bills coming in at the end of the week and having to pay them later this week. But this is life and this is life trying to make your dreams come true. It may mean living on the rough side for a bit, but I’m prepared.
