The rainy weather of Los Angeles today has brought the gloom into my blog.
I’m just super frustrated because job hunting is one of the most disheartening tasks that I have had to take on. It’s upsetting. It’s getting harder to read through all these job descriptions, knowing I am fully capable of taking on all these responsibilities and just know that I won’t be called. That’s the feeling I’m at now. And after months and months of this, a feeling of hopelessness begins to settle in and it’s just… soul crushing.
A glimmer of sunlight in these next few weeks will be the dachshund we’re dog-sitting for Andrew’s brother. His name is Coffee.
And while Coffee is great and can go walk with me up and down Runyon, I still got bills to pay. I got responsibilities I need to fulfill that can only get going with a salary. I get that upon entering the work force, I will miss this free time. Right now, I’ve got all the time in the world but no money. One day, I will have money but no time to enjoy it. I’ve been told the irony, I get it. But unfortunately my life is at a standstill and I’m ready to go forward.
That is one of the reasons I have started this blog. Because, I’m upset. Because, I feel hopeless (sometimes). Because… I feel like I’m at least doing something.
Cooking makes me feel better. It’s relaxing and it distracts me, even if it’s only a little bit.
Moving onto less gloomy things, Andrew revealed that he didn’t like the broccoli on the pizzas. I took that as in he hated broccoli.
He doesn’t and he really liked this broccoli recipe. And when broccoli went $.49/lb at Sprouts, it came in real handy. Just toast some slices of garlic and red pepper flakes in olive oil. Throw in the broccoli and some water and cook for a minute or two. Magic.
