A Dog and a Vibrator

What more does a woman need in life? Oh, a job. Got that. Just need the dog and vibrator.

Oh yes. Wakeup is very nearly an employed woman. I've worked very hard at looking for a job. And the one I got is low-paying with irregular hours. I will be working as a support worker for autistic adults on an ad hoc basis. I think it's disgraceful that gardeners and cleaners get paid more than I will be. But I might be starting a cleaning/gardening business with a friend as well anyway. And it's a start. That's what I keep telling myself. I think it could be a very fulfilling job.

I've gone off in a million different directions since last year, but it might be that things are starting to all come together. And if you believe that there is some greater plan, as I do, then the pieces of the puzzle might be coming together.

I am finishing up my ECDL course. I need to do more work on my Adobe Dreamweaver course. I am finishing up my Swedish massage coursework and need to book a time for my assessment and tests (the real reason I've put it off). With my pending job, I feel I need to tie up the loose ends. And that CV (resume) is just getting more and more fleshed out.

And did I mention that my college boyfriend and I are in touch? I don't wish to reignite our relationship, but it's nice that we can be friends after all these years. And of course, there's the dog and vibrator to look forward to...

Well done on getting the job! Your first step towards independence again :)

Way to go! Just having the independence that this job will give you and a distraction from your unsettled home life will be a major booster. Out of the house and into the real world - it's the start of your new life. All the best. One step at a time.

Fire Byrd: That could be very interesting, not to mention funny.

twirl unabashedly: Me too!

Angela: Yes, let's hope there are quite a few more steps I climb.

MOB: I just want all the bad stuff to be over with now.

Chinese guys: I'd reply but I have no idea what you're saying, except for the one who said I look great today, which makes me wonder if you're stalking me.
