WTF?!?!?! I've often been accused of being overly optimistic and positive. This of course is something I've considered a good quality, but perhaps I am not clear. Let's play a translation game....
How could doing manual labor by way of measuring parking lots in the middle of heck knows where, while also working a second full time job at a startup for not enough money to pay much more than rent.... be awesome?!?! This shit is harder than a marathon!!!
Yes, I AM surviving and yes, I've figured out how to keep a roof over my head (after giving up everything but the roof), but that's sorta not great right? Better than most - lucky to have a gig, lucky to have my health, lucky to be at the start of something extraordinary..... but doing great?!?!?! That may be a serious bikram yoga kinda stretch.
Apparently it's because I'm smiling and keeping my chin up that things seem "great." I'm not sure what that means really, but ok. Yep, I get up most days and go for a walk in a neighborhood I love. I have a few very good friends to call. I have things that keep me inspired - and while I'm not eating kale and kombucha, Trader Joe's veggies and brown rice pasta is ok too.
