Life is Funny

So I started a part time job with a higher education corporation that contracts with various colleges and universities around the country to help with administrative and some customer service issues. I do get to wear a nice little headset when I start reaching out to students and parents in a few weeks; but for now I’m just online.

But I sure as heck will deliver great customer service as shown in the meme above!

I’m now in the private sector and able to set my own hours and flexibility as needed so I can still get my graduate school applications in and explore any other career opportunities. I have also joined associations so I can network and make connections in the field of work that I aspire to be in. Not too mention, most importantly make time for you guys in blog-land!

It has dawn on me that this summer, I will turn 29 and the blog will turn three this Fall. So much has happened since I started this website. Well, I have had three jobs, published a novel, and have come to terms with the realities of my life. My twenties are behind me as of September, I’ll only have one more year to fuck things up before I need to “settle”. Hence, my rash decision to…well read about it here.

I have been thinking a lot about what this last year will mean for me, and that’s why I have been looking for work (before I had quit) and then decided to complete my education and return for a graduate degree.

One of the positive things about this milestone, is that I am now beyond the stage where symptoms for most mental illnesses, such as Schizophrenia or Bi-Polar Disorder has passed. Thus, I can say to a degree of certainty that I am not mentally ill!

You see? I’m always looking at the bright side of things, even during lousy times.

I also have some exciting news, The Reporter and The Girl e-book is now available through Amazon, if you have a kindle. It was always available as an e-book, but as part of this select program it can be read for free through Kindle Unlimited or Prime. I am currently a few chapters in of the second book…it will definitely be a different perspective/voice from the first with some hot scenes. I just so happened to be reminiscing over the weekend about Jon and Sabrien and came across this Youtube video:

Ah, the memories…I am not currently working with an artist to do a corresponding vlog, but I may look into some of the free comic strips services so I continue this multidimensional platform. If anyone has made their own comic strip online and can recommend a site, please let me know!

That’s all my news for now. Hopefully, in terms of education, I’ll have some big news soon. But in the meantime as long as I have my health, then all is sunny in…New York City!

So how do you stay positive when things aren’t going so smooth? Share your tips at,
