Hello again. It has been several months since I have written my last blog post, but I have been transitioning into another chapter of my life. I have a new job in metropolitan Atlanta where I work with computers; however, it is not the specific job that I wanted, but it’s a start. So far, that job is going okay as I have been there since my last blog post. Now, I have Labor Day off, so that I can rethink about a few things and reorganize certain things. What do I mean? I mean that I need to think more as to what I really want in the long run and to what I need to do to get the things done that I want. Given my life experiences with people and working, I have a much better idea. I have to take into account several factors, and I don’t necessarily have a choice for some of those factors, which I won’t mention here.
Looking more closely in my own life, I have to say that I am working on getting my own place since I am currently living with a relative. How am I resolving that? First, I will get a professional mail box within metropolitan Atlanta where I can start to get my mail at my own “place.” Second, once I save up enough money, I will get my own place. I would prefer to rent a house, but I will rent an apartment if I feel forced in that direction. Of course, I will have to look into details as to places where I would like to live. Yes, I have to take into account people, the surrounding stores that interest me, and the main question as to decide whether I can see myself live there for a long period of time; I have grown tired of being nomadic. My target date for that will be on 1 January 2017.
On the professional side of my life, I want to work in education again, but this time, not as an instructor. I will only consider the college scene since I have realized that I can work with mainly adults. After more than two years teaching kids, I realize now that I am not comfortable doing that on a full-time basis and that I will “rock the boat” unnecessarily to help kids learn. I will still tutor math, but I will do that privately for all age groups. Additionally, I plan to stay at my current job on a part-time basis unless I can feel that I can grow there and get into the department where I want to be ultimately. I am still at other available options as always, but I have learned that I will not let anyone stand in my way although I am already aware that I am responsible for my own success.
While interacting with people, I can do that within the work place without any problems since I view people in the workforce based on their ranks (to a degree), and I will always treat people respectfully unless I have been provided a legitimate and conclusively verified reason to do otherwise. I don’t care what gender or race the people are with whom I work while I’m there. Now, back to interacting with others more towards my personal life, I have to say that I have been able to speak to various types of people, and believe it or not, my current job has helped me more with that. However, the dating scene is a different story; I will never date anyone from the workplace as that has been a rule I had placed on myself. Now, I do go to social events occasionally in metropolitan Atlanta that has helped me relearn how to interact with others face-to-face. That is something that I have noticed about half of the people today lack since they interact over the phone and computers mostly.
In closing, what I will say is this. I have to work on my future a bit more every day where I hope to be able to accomplish all of my goals. Although I have not met all of them, I will say that I have learned how to balance out my life between business and fun; it’s easier said that done, but I know that I have been working on that with other things in my life. I hope that you enjoy your Labor Day weekend. Take care.
Until next time,
