So, lately my life has been doing what I call ‘the pancake’ frequently. Something will come along that will change my course completely. It’s cool. I like change. I reviewed the last 100 days and the things that happened just because I started being open for change, then just moving in faith and doing the damn thing. It seemed like it took forever as I was going through it, but it really didn't:
- On Day 1, I had just finished my series Me, Honestly.
- On Day 19, I started a second job to make ends meet. Writing became harder, blog expansion plans postponed.
- By Day 32, I realized I was at a dead-end and needed higher paying work, started looking around town but found nothing.
- On Day 33, I reunited with an old friend from school, asked about his thoughts on a website partnership. He mentioned Atlanta’s job market.
- The shit hit the fan on Day 39 when I realized I couldn’t stay at my current job, nor would I. Started an active job search right then…in Atlanta.
- By day 53 I had no prospects, but knew I wasn’t going to be able to work in Atlanta until I was in Atlanta. So I gave up my apartment. 30 days to pack.
- Day 60 – still no prospects, but delivered my job resignation anyway.
- Day 63 – 67 – Got four interviews, web domain secured J
- Day 78 – Interviewed with company that offered me a job on Day 99, after three rounds.
I really feel like if I’d waited one more day to start acting, I wouldn’t have had a happy ending.
So now, I just want to see what I can do over the next 100 days. I have a couple goals that are really general, and I figure over the first couple weeks they’ll streamline themselves, just like everything else has so far.
- Launch the damn site.
- Get back the muscle I lost working like a donkey. (That jiggle is neither jam nor jelly, I’m afraid.)
And yeah, I’ll write about it. It’s what I do.
Oh, and did I mention I fell in love on day 46?
