THANK YOU JENNI HERD
Wouldn’t it be great if we could talk about politics without name calling or threats?

me, January 2, 2014.
Well 2014 has been an interesting one. The first weekend of February, I randomly sat down at my computer and spent three hours working on my resume and LinkedIn profile. The following Tuesday, I applied for a job in Portland, after looking at apartments and houses on craigslist with Beau. The next morning, I got laid off from Hayneedle. Time seems like a blur since then, but I know this: I’m happy. I’ve been practicing yoga more, teaching more, going to the gym more, and eating better. Tonight was the first time in two weeks that I ate a microwave meal. I’ve been hanging out with friends more, at all hours of the day, and it’s been awesome. I haven’t felt a tightness in my chest. Last night I bought tickets to go to Portland for nine days. I’m staying with my cousin, and applying for jobs and looking for apartments/houses/neighborhoods. She sent me a link to a website called idealist, and it lists SO MANY JOBS for companies that are genuinely trying to change the world. I could work for one of them! Instead of shitting out copy for stuff people don’t need! Wayne and Laurie sent me a task for Brownell’s archery products, and I’m happy to do it b/c it pays well, but I don’t want to keep doing it forever, or for any length of time really. This I know.
