This summer of being unemployed, I have managed to stretch some savings and make some money here and there enough to sustain me to this point. As of now I'm at the very, very end of my funds. I am so happy that I took the chance and left my old job to really search and figure out what I wanted to do, it's a decision that I still don't regret. Although it's been difficult at times, I know I do have the potential to just go out and find a job with a little effort. I also have the potential to hustle my way through anything. I have a great family support behind me and I am thankful for that(no matter how much I want to go out into the world and be independent, NOW) I managed to ace an interview and get a job offer( The people were great but I declined it for a number of practical reasons.)
In between all of this I have managed to enjoy my first summer since graduating highschool. As my mom said I have been on since graduation, whether it be jumping straight into college from h.s., jumping right into work after college. This is the first summer I have fully just "lived up."
Things I've done this Summer:
I've been to the beach twice
I went out to Astoria pool to learn to swim
I finally made it out to a Hillsong connect group
Went to South street seaport with my best friend and we ate all day haha.
I saw a pre-screening of a hilarious movie Pitch Perfect.
I sat on the lawn at Bryant Park for hours waiting for The Wizard of Oz to start.
It was like falling in love all over again.
I saw the Avengers twice
Made new friends
Had a picture day with an old friend
Had a jam/worship session on my roof with 2 great people
I did so much more...
