How to Job

So moving back to my home town means.......job hunting and not just me myself my best friend broke up with her boyfriend which I talked about it in my post Heartbreak (Go ahead and read it for some insight) but I dress up and look nice just to pick up an application for a job. So I thought I would give a little advice on how to present yourself when job hunting. Just remember this is my opinion and just a little advice it's not personal. I made my friend change shirts before she went into an interview I literally said to her and I quote
"You are not wearing that"
This is what I wore to work on time and
I just had a good pair of jeans on 
She just got off work at her family sandwich shop so she had a shirt that wasn't in the best of shape the appliqued letters were coming off (Morgan if you're reading this I love you and I'm sorry) So I went to my closet and picked out a nice shirt and handed it to her. Now there are 2 different ways to go to and 2 different ways to dress.
So for an application pick up here is my list of dos.

  1. Nice shirt (no holes no stains)
  2. Nice pants (no holes no stains)
  3. Look well groomed so guys are cleaned shaven girls have your hair under control 
Those are 3 easy things to do you don't have to be in dress pants and a dress shirt. I guess a way to put it is look like you are going on a first date. Not all places you need to wear dress pants and all I don't have a decent picture of a guy dressed up that would look nice.

Don't look like this
My don't list was pretty much already said look like you are going on a first date look nice. It only takes .2 seconds for a first impression. The other photo I have up is a don't sweatshirts are a no go if I was an employer I would not higher you. You want to look like you care to take pride in what you look like.

I know I sound harsh but that's life, life isn't going to hand you everything you want or need that's why it's important to work. I have Epilepsy as you peoples know some people won't hire me because of that they may say they aren't hiring me for a different reason or not give me one. It may be my insecurity to but when I have an interview I say "Hey I have Epilepsy" I know I don't have to tell them but I do.

I'm getting off subject kind of but confidence is one I know it's said a lot but it's true. Also eye contact not to much but not to little this is a little harder to figure out because you don't want to be to assertive but not to submissive. This is going to be a weird analogy but have an attitude like a dog when a dog is to dominate to another dominate dog they fight.

A submissive and submissive dog one tries to dominate the other you want to balance everything out so you aren't submissive and get dominated but don't be dominate and not see eye to eye with your future boss.

Mom Life

If you're a mom you might just ask yourself this question almost daily "Am I a bad mom" I know I do and I normally talk to my best friend or my boyfriend about it and why I feel that way. I always get told the same thing by both of them "NO you are not a bad mom you are doing what you can" That is one this every mom needs to remember you're no a bad mom if it's your first child no matter how old they are you're still learning. Every day is a new lesson. You're never truly are on your own when it comes to parenting even if it feels like it at times. As being a human you're constantly learning even if you don't realize it. Just because it's not a big lesson sometimes the smaller ones can be more of an impact than the big ones.  My toddler constantly tests my patience he tries to push me to my breaking point. I get mad but I have to take a deep breath. I know he doesn't understand but sometimes I think he knows exactly what he&#

A New Decade or Chapter

It's that time a year again but, I have to do something new this year I'm considered self-employed thanks to my book . I never thought I would be able to say I'm self-employed even though I haven't broken even yet. I'm so grateful for 2019 and am ready to embrace 2020! It let in a new chapter of my life and I'm even working on my second book that will be done here soon. I'm not sure to this day if I took my first book in the right direction. The thing is you live and you learn though I hope to make a difference with my books  or book as of this moment I only have one. I do hope on releasing my second book this year titled Myself. I'm doing something that I never thought I would do but I'm revealing my true self I talked some about what I've been through in You.  I'm taking off my brave face and am going to reveal my feelings it's hard but I'm doing it. The thing is how am I going to help someone if I'm still hiding You . It

Listen to Your Body

I always talk about how important health is mind and body, but it doesn't prepare you for unexpected health issues. Unfortunately, that's what's going on with me. I don't know exactly what's going on I do know I've gotten into the doctor as soon as possible. That's something someone should do if somethings not right monitor it and if it doesn't stop after a few days go to the doctor. I'm no medical professional this is just my opinion. I ended up finding out what was going on. I'm still going through all the treatment it was nothing deadly nothing dangerous. I'm glad everything has been figured out. Remember if something is abnormal with your body check it out your health is important. This is partially the reason I've been gone in the month of November. I found out that I abnormal bleeding in my womanhood. I accidentally overlap with two different types of birth control the depo shot and the arm implant. So that life lesson has been
