You'll never know unless you try

Yes I am alive, and no the Phi Beta Kappa office didn’t leave me selfless with no motivation to work. Although it was close. So here I am, on the other side of the table. I made it through an awful apartment experience, and a job that made me mostly crazy, miserable, and hoping for any type of salvation that might come my way.

The new apartment is amazing! Way to expensive, but I was already wasting my money being unhappy, and if I cannot afford to purchase anything in this city, I might as well invest in my happiness.

The apartment is like this little hotel suite. It’s got a washer and dryer, dishwasher, garbage disposal, and an exhaust fan in the bathroom. All my furniture fit into the apartment, and it’s very cozy. Just ask Alex’s parents who were guests of Shea Alli last week.

The new job is completely amazing. I’m being treated fantastically. The people are so nice, and the team I’m working with is just a great group of women. I am helping to head up Human Resources, starting out in the HR Assistant position. Hoping to become and expert in the field, I’m concentrating on being productive with my work day, getting my work finished promptly, and helping out in any way that’s going to make the firm more productive. This position is an organizational heaven for me. I get to touch something different everyday. My job is never the same, there is lots to do and I get to problem solve my way in and out of things. I feel important, well-liked, and capable of handling more responsibility. So it turns out that working two jobs everyday, and interviewing on my lunch break ended up being worth it in the end. You just have to try things. That’s how you know your life is real. When things are hard, when they’re difficult, and you keep testing your limits, and eventually it ends up being worth it.

Once you realize that you’re worth it, then you remember to fulfill other pieces of your life that you left behind for whatever reason. Now that I’m more relaxed and have time for myself, I have taken up two of my old hobbies. I have started skating for a second time. I was asked to join a Syncro Skating team in Maryland. It’s the most fun activity I’ve been involved in a long time. I’ve never skated like this before, unless you count the ice shows at Shaker every May for my entire childhood. Last night some of the girls from the team and myself went to a freestyle session. I landed doubles. I was spinning pretty well. I only fell once. It’s amazing how normal it felt to be back on the ice and inside my skates. We’re going to compete in Atlanta at the end of January at Easterns. How cool is that? I’ll be sure to keep everyone posted on more skating events in case anyone cares to waste their weekend at a skating event.

The other hobby I started back up with is my writing. I have missed it so much. But with everything that’s been going on, I haven’t been in the right mindset to be writing. Kleinman and I are writing a script. We’re writing a comedy. Just for fun. We’re character building, and having fun playing around with the conversations and dialouge. It’s really fun throwing pieces of yourself into other people. Essentially that’s what we’re doing. We’re creating people with lives of their own, conflicts and aspirations they have in order to eventaully achieve goals. The character and the plot are coming along nicely. Thanks to a little miniscule program call “Final Draft,” I won’t have to continue formatting each line every time I’m writing a scene…thank you John, it’s not miniscule by any means. It’s the most amazing, thorough, complete, and organized writing program on the market. This program is going to allow me so much more freedom while writing. Kleinman and I have to get back to it. So email us if you’re interested. But don’t be surprised if we give you little to no details. Have to be careful with your work, cause some people are just out to get you. It’s fun, we’re having a blast, and we’re not taking it or ourselves too seriously. Sometimes you just have to take life into your own hands and make it worth something. So Kleinman and I are creating lives and hopefully making them worth reading about. Who knows, maybe this fun and games will turn into something someday. You'll never know unless you try.
