I woke up sad this morning. Then I got some coffee and it made me feel normal enough to not be so sad/worried.
The uphill battle of changing careers:
It is hard as hell to learn math on your own. I would study for hours working on math problems, then one thing would distract me (a phone call, the mailman, the cat doing something naughty, an errand that needs to be completed) and then my mind would turn into a Tabula Rasa. It’s like my mind is conspiring against me. It doesn’t help that I am scattered brained by nature. But after walking away from my miserable corporate job last year, my options are limited. It doesn’t also help that since that Civil Rights Ordinance got appealed, the odds for finding employment have increased slightly against me. So I have to retrain myself into a much-in-demand field and hope that I will find employment after the whole mess is done (in another state/country).
That is what I have been using my time on besides of learning Modern Greek. I am doing well on the class and hope to continue to do so the next semester.
And so the holidays begin
Will be traveling again to visit family in PR. If it weren’t for family and friends still living there, I wouldn’t return. There was recently a shoot out at a gas station close to my parents’ house and I cringe at driving through any city period. Maybe out in the country it won’t be too bad (keeping my fingers crossed). I am hoping transportation will be less of a problem this year too.
