Job Hunt

So I don't think I filled yall in on this but I recently quit my job. When I say recently, I mean about two weeks ago. Why you ask? Honestly, I just really wasn't enjoying it. That sounds like a really petty reason I know. Right now though I really need a job that I can enjoy and that motivates me to go. As I've told yall before, I have depression and do take medicine for it. Well, it was starting to not be very effective anymore so we up-ed my dosage a little before I quit my job. Therefore, I'm having a hard time adjusting to the new amount of medicine and I'm feeling more "depressed" than normal. This is just me getting used to the new amount of medicine. But I couldn't push myself to get up to go to a job I hated at a place I didn't want to be when I was dealing with that. So I quit.

This is my thinking face..

Now though, I don't know what to do! I know I want to do something I enjoy. I've been looking and applying at places that involve art or animals but haven't had any luck so far.  I know job searching isn't easy but I forgot that it was this hard! I was at my past job a year and I was very lucky and got that quick. I know God will give me an opportunity that is just what I need WHEN I need it! (Which I hope is soon..) I don't have any income right now except what my parents are willing to help me out with right now. I've started my etsy shop back up again and hope to do well with that. I'm about to get desperate and put dog walking flyers up in my apartment complex too! If anyone has any encouraging words, I'd love to hear them! I know things will be fine and I'm not fretting YET!

  1. I did the exact same thing last summer... it just came to a point where I literally could not physically get out of bed and go to work because I hated it so much. Just keep applying and ask everyone you know if they have any leads... I've found it's usually easier to get hired when you have a connection. But in the mean time, dog walking would be fun and good luck with your etsy shop!
    Things have a way of working themselves out :)
