This Saturday tune in to gyroscope radio at 6:00PM on http://www.ustream.tv/ to listen to “Rated M” where a panel of all women discuss topics that deal with women! I am so excited that I am using my talents and everyone has been so supportive. I’ve been befriended by all of these amazing, intelligent, innovative and artistic and wonderful people.
So what do you do when you have your dream job, but you can’ t get to it? My mom and I essentially share a car even though the car is under her name. She has this Medicaid insurance but since she’s unsure about what it exactly covers she is wary about letting me drive it far.
This just in: the tire light came on.
“Well, put air in it,” you say.
We did that to no avail. We have to get it checked and we probably need a new tire which neither of us has money for. So I take the bus. No biggie. I have taken the bus all my life. But the bus cost money too. Most of which I am saving for training to be a substitute teacher which will, in the long run, make me money.
I’m hoping this blog will reach the struggling intern and the entry level worker who can only afford Nissan Noodles; because this happens. Sometimes grown up life means you have to struggle to do what you love.
And I’m here to say I’m hanging by a thread with you. May the Lord keep us both.
Some tips for saving money:
Use every resource you got: Ask friends for favors, take money from your savings (a reasonable amount), ask granny for enough to get you by. Just don’t forget all the people who helped you out when you get to the top.
Put first priorities first: I know you miss your best friend but that big project is not going to finish itself. If they are really your friend they will be available when you really have the time to hang.
IT’S OKAY TO TAKE A MOMENT TO THINK, CAN I REALLY DO THIS?
Don’t make big commitments when you can not deliver. That’s a step on the road to self sabotage. Take a moment to think if you really have the means to accomplish certain task. Sometimes on the road to success there are some opportunities you may have to pass up.
Don’t try to do it all but make all that you do count.
I really need to establish a regular posting date. I mean in my mind its Sunday and Wednesday. Sunday and Wednesday. Sunday and Wednesday. Sunday and Wednesday. Maybe if I type it enough, my fingers won’t be able to flex without touching the keys of my laptop.
My laptop is staying with me by the way. Dell will have to long- term screw someone else’s computer. I’m going to put editing software on mine and suffer with my ethernet cord until I buy mac.
YOU HERE THAT PC, I’M BUYING A MAC!
Many a great thing my life has happening in.
=-) I mean many great things have been happening in my life. The Ivanhoe Artist Mosaic of Paterson, NJ has been providing a platform for art mediums even before it became a non – profit in 2006. The city wants to take the building away from them and rent it out to other organizations. In order to sway their decision, the Ivanhoe group need to provide “just cause” of them utilizing the building. They put on mucho events and all events are paid for by donations and membership funds. What is the city talking about?
Moving on I volunteered to film a mini doc in support of the Ivanhoe. So I have been filming that. And I have begun the editing process. And I promise I will be blogging about that assuming the frustration hasn’t consumed me and I haven’t sworn off all technology. =-)
