I’ve always been the kind of person who swears a lot of things, “I swear I won’t.” “I swear I didn’t.” “I swear I’ll never.”……
You get the idea.
For as long as I can remember I’ve known people with 2 jobs, even in classmates in school (so if you counted school as a “job” they had 3 jobs). I never understood it. I understood that they needed the money but that’s about it. How can you balance such a life?
I swore I would never work 2 jobs.
Then I became someone who works two jobs.
I just covered it up by calling one a career & the other a job.
And although that’s what it feels like most of the time, they’re both still jobs.
The main reason why I haven’t written in 2 weeks is because I was having trouble balancing my life; between those two jobs.
And there was the 4th of July holiday, or as I call it “the day I watch ‘Independence Day’ and wouldn’t be caught dead outside.”
Oh and after the first week it was kind of fun to take a “blog-cation” and work on my office, which now has an actual desk! (It’s a pocket tray, but still).
In a roundabout way what I’m telling you is, don’t swear. I’m not talking about the 4 letter word swears, because I’d be the biggest hypocrite on planet earth (and quite frankly I enjoy those swears a little too much to give them up).
I’m telling you to steer away from the other type of swearing:
* I could never….
* I would ever…..
* I won’t……
* I’ll never…..
* I didn’t…
* I couldn’t….
I’m giving you this little piece of advice because if you’re anything like me swearing something is basically like daring God (or whatever you believe in) to “allow” it to happen (if you believe that’s possible).
And if you’re anything like me God likes to have a good laugh at my expense, I’d swear to it (almost).
