Wow! What can I say? There has been a lot going on lately which has caused me not to blog in months. I am not going to make excuses, but I feel i need to explain something to my readers. Things have been going very well and not so well. First, I got a new job working as a collector, then I was offered another position working in a bank. I start that job soon and I’m very excited and anxious about it. But, I am always this way with new things so I am trying to calm my anxiety. Another great thing that has happened is that I bought my first car! Yes, I am super excited and I’m also having anxiety about that too! I know, Krystol get a grip. My dad says I’m reading too much into it. He was like,” Krystol, you are not the only person that is driving so it’s okay. Just keep driving.” I mean, he does have a point, but its still like ahhhh, Nerve wracking! Nonetheless, I am happy that I can come and go as I please.
My writing and reading has definitely taken a back seat with everything. At my previous job I was working 10 hours a day and because I was still taking the bus, it took me 2 hours to get to work each day to and from. I was exhausted. My reading and writing really suffered. Now, I am trying to get back into it. I have a couple of book reviews to post, but this is my current read.
Lately I have been feeling a little lost in terms of being stable in a career. I’ve always worked jobs and have not been happy. The dream job is to be a writer and write for a company or network, while still writing my novels. I just need that big break! Recently, ( like a few days ago), I got some inspiration with writing films again. A friend from my mom’s church took me to see a Christian film titled, ” I Can’t Imagine” and it was amazing! It turns out that I know the writer of the movie! I went to a seminar he was giving at the film school I graduated from. Pretty cool, right? I was so excited and so happy as I was watching the credits. That is my goal to see my name on the screen.
While working this job at the bank, I am going to keep writing and trying to get my writing out there the best way that I can. I will always have hope that my dreams will come true. On another note, my health has been giving me issues. My diabetes is controlled, however, I was diagnosed with Cirrhosis yesterday. It tore me up inside as my doctor was giving me results. Why couldn’t I just have a cold or a fever? I’m still doing my research, but the gist is that my liver isn’t working as well as it should. Can this be overturned? Yes, I have to loose weight and exercise. I have been trying to eat better. The exercising is hard for me because I’m a not motivated to do it. But, now I have to, so once the snow clears I am signing up for the gym. This is something that I really have to commit to because I’m high risk for liver cancer. I CANNOT have that. I want to have children one day. I’m sorry that I haven’t made a post in a while, it is just sometimes life happens. But, with God on my side, I will prevail. I have no choice to. I will make an effort to post more often. It is a nor’easter where I am so I am going to have today be a reading and movie day. I hope everyone has a great day and stay safe!
