Seems everyone is concerned about me lately.  Particularly about my money situation.

I’m thinking about applying for a couple of night jobs.  They’ll keep me out of the cold and put money in my pocket that I need for car repairs, and all the little extras that come up like gift-giving, clothes, entertainment, charitable giving (only in person for me) etc.

I guess this isn’t the first time I’ve mentioned that I need to get another job.  I’m dragging my feet because although I love to work, I don’t like working at jobs.  People tend to get mean at jobs.

I don’t get my feeling hurt easily but I just worry about society as a whole when people act badly.  I worry about our future if we can’t even be kind to each other.

Sometimes people can be super nice and sometimes they lack the simplest courtesies.  I haven’t learned yet not to let these things bother me.

Perhap I just need more experience.

If I was more disciplined at going after work for my small business, I wouldn’t have to consider working for others.  I’m going to pray tonight that God will help me get some more business or help me find a different avenue to make money.

Ok God….everyone’s watching!  🙂

    Alot of the nastiness of work can come from the management. I have been on both sides of this; a good manager can make work tolerable, a bad one can make it impossible.

    If you’re looking for night work, it seems like you’ll be looking into retail then?

  2. Charles says:

    All kinds of p/f night work available, depending on experience and preferences, retail is one, security, laundry attendant, work site clean-up(go in late in the day and clean up construction sites) might negotiate clean up into free lance security, some cash for cleaning and a place to park for security. Just look at location no matter what you choose.

    Be careful and good luck.

    The notion of night work for warmth and cash is good. What you’ll need is the ability to sleep during the day. When I was at university, I worked graveyard at a local police agency. Was wonderful, because I had a very quiet neighborhood to sleep in during the day.

    Yeah, people being “mean” at jobs. I work in a very left-brained job, so no one here has the notion of “mean” (we have the “loudmouths” whom we shrug off and avoid having work work near … except that some of them are uncommonly smart and willing to share their smarts between loudmouthing). Can you build yourself a shell about the “meanness” and mentally dump it right back on them?

    P.S. Belated happy holidays! I hope yours were good times!

      (Your blogsite needs an ‘edit’ on posts … )

      Their meanness really is truly about them, and not at all about you, or about anyone else they’re interacting with.

    You guys are so great. Thanks for your thoughts and advice.

    I would like to apply at my gym. The benefits besides money and a place to get out of the cold: I think it might help me get over my fear of gym people (I know, I’m very silly!), I won’t look as out of place when I take a shower there (maybe?), I’ll probably work out more and get in better shape and they’ll probably give me a free membership. Incidentally, when I was 18 I worked at a fitness center. I even taught classes. Seems a lifetime ago!

    Hope they’ll hire me. If I apply…..

    I guess we all need money, wouldn’t it be hard to find somewhere to park in the day without going noticed though? People are nosey and love to look through curtains! Happy new year.

    • Maureen says:

      No I don’t think it will be hard. People around here aren’t that nosey in my experience. They are too busy worrying about their image to worry about a quiet nomad living in their midst.
