Turned tables can be so fun!

So I lost my job and place to stay yesterday. Instead of bumming out and doing my fair share of bawling about how pitiful life is, I've decided to stay positive.

 And it worked. Just a half an hour ago, my friend told me of a tiny house he's going to rent out. It has 2 bedrooms and he would appreciate the rent help, although the price is also tiny.

 I'm thinking that this kind of set-up will be conducive with my career as an artist. I stopped by a printer in my neighborhood to talk prices. He could not give me any specific quotes, but I think he may want my business enough to give me an initial deal to get me as a loyal customer.

 If I can make a good profit hawking my printed designs, I will not need to deal with such foolishness as a j.o.b.(even if I did get the initial money from it).

 So I'll have even less time to blog and comment, but I am going to walk and spread some love when I can. Keep your chins up and if you lose your employment or home like me, at least you've got your life.

    1. Will do. I'm hoping there's an open signal somewhere around the new place. The rain has delayed the move.

  9. Sorry to hear that. But you arent alone, every single person had to face this, this kind of break from mundane life sometimes gives revelation and helps us make better decisions. I underwent this twice and I owe my happiness to the break. All the best.

  11. Glad to hear that you're staying positive about the situation.

    For whatever it's worth, I suggest that you be careful about your level of stress and overall mental health because losing your job and finding a new place to live are really large life changes.

    1. I'll need it because my first foray into this arena is a contest. I'm to win a hundred bucks if I can outplace the competition with a digital rendition of a burger. If I can make someone salivate with the most fake looking meal, I can probably win. Thanks for the luck!

  18. Wow, way to be positive!

    I'm kind of in a similar situation. Don't have a "real" job, but after a few months of being jobless, I've decided to pursue something I really DO have an interest in, and I'm teaching myself to become better in this new area. So, maybe everything happens for a reason?
