Dollar and Cents - Writer's Block
The worst thing about stressing about The Dollars is that it stifles my creativity. Constantly worrying about finding a job, paying bills, and buying groceries ('cause right now the cupboards are empty) makes it near impossible to do much else...namely write.
I feel like if I'm not actively seeking employment (search for jobs, applying for jobs, networking, etc.) than I'm not being productive. Intellectually I realize that the other things I have to do -- my thesis, a couple of writing projects, my blog, my one "job" that I have let -- are equally as important and will probably help me with the job search, but it has been hard getting any of that done.
I am very, VERY stressed. And while I am calm and not pulling my hair out or anything, I am very uneasy about the uncertainty of not just my immediate future, but the direction of my life in general.
I started Dollars and Cents to help me work these things out. And to completely honest these blogs are the only thing keeping me from falling completely a part.
