An update on my goals from this past August

Greetings, readers. I came home from Maine last August all full of energy, expecting to have a job within weeks of my return. To my disappointment, that job offer fell through. I was so disappointed I kind of went into a shell and did not look elsewhere. That is about to change.

Although I thoroughly enjoy writing the blog with Rebecca, a writing project must get underway immediately and come to completion in an attempt to make money with it. I know money isn’t everything, but it sure helps pay the bills, and a job would give me a sense of pride and accomplishment. Next week I am going to start by going next door to the local library and ask if they are accepting volunteers. Once I get used to getting out of the apartment and keeping that regular schedule, I shall look for a job that pays. There is one draw back to this plan.

It is already February. As my regular readers know, my annual trek to Maine in August is very important to me. It is a family reunion. If I were to start a job now, I might not have enough time in to request a summer vacation. I would have to sacrifice Bear Spring Camps for the job. I’m not a child anymore and I completely understand that a paying job would take precedence.

Hopefully I can volunteer or get a part-time job until camp time, and then when I return in late August I can reaffirm my plan to get that full-time job, and also be a writer. I know it is time for a life change when I feel guilty playing video games or watching too much television. The life of no responsibilities must end. As I get older, I do not wish to hit retirement age having hardly ever worked. To me that just seems too dumb.

Fear not, I know God put me on this Earth for a reason or reasons. I shall find all of them. Among my many appointments and apartment building obligations I will find time to be a productive member of society.

Okay, I’ve vented for today. I beg your pardon if I get a little repetitive now and then. Consider this a form of therapy for me.

Until next week, possibly earlier, have a fantastic weekend, take care and as always, happy reading.

  1. Much gratitude to you, Joe. Very inspiring! These are super strong goals since you have written them & shared them w/ so many people (how many?). I wonder what you notice about ‘going public’ with your intentions. Best to you, Heather by Sept
