theres always a lesson............

Hey blog fam.............

still searching for a J.O.B. who would think that a nurse would have such a hard time finding employment..............

One of my bestest girlfriends is a bartender. Last nite was her birthday and she had a REALLY big party at the club she works at. The owner and I were setting up yesterday afternoon and she asked me 2 be a cocktail waitress for the party because sdhe had fired a gurl the nite before. Of course I said yeah......cause 1: the owner is hella cool 2 me...she always always takes care of me when i'm there and 2: it was my gurls birthday. I worked the party and I made about $70 in tips!!!!! YEA!!!!!

When I got home last nite and counted my ones and fives I started 2 cry................even though it was only $70 it meant sooooo much 2 me because I have N.O.INCOME. I AT THAT MOMENT WAS HUMBLED!!!!! This time last year I was making 3 times that a DAY. Sitting back in my comfy lil office listening 2 yahoo tunes on my computer.......half working, blogging my ass off, taking 2 hour lunches with boss lady.....a year later i'm waiting tables at my girlfriends job, serving drinks 2 my friends..................my how things can change in a year............

From this whole ordeal I have learned so much!!! If any of you have ever lost a job you know how I feel........

I have learned 2 take NOTHING for granted. not that i did in the past but this experience has reminded me constantly!!!

I have learned to better budget my money!!!! I have been living off of $1000 less monthly probably a little more that........

I have learned how to ask for help from friends and family without feeling bad.

I have learned that my job does not make me the woman I am!!!!!

Most important i learned 2 excercise my faith.........

Even though things are dark right now I keep reminding myself that things are always darkest before the dawn.........I keep reminding myself, he has never let me down before!!!!!!

Thanks for the prayers and well wishes!!!!!! I will keep y'all posted!!!!!!!

My unemployment ran out..........I thought it was good for a year cause it said on every check: "your claim expires 2/17/07" so my ass never being on unemployment before thought I had a year..................not that I would stay off for a WHOLE year........antywho..........I got my last check and it was only for one week and I just figured I was at my half way mark so I had 2 re-apply..............I get on line and fill out the form.......got a letter on Friday that simply said "NO MORE MONEY DEE" WHAT?????? I cried for 5 minutes where the old me as y'all know would have cried for DAYS!!!!!! so now in 2 weeks I will have no check in the mail and i'm a lil scared but I know things will work out!!!!!!
