At the Beginning of Today…
I woke up with no problems whatsoever. I got to set on time, got my check, and wrapped for the season.
My sister’s passport and visa came in, she’s all packed, and she leaves for Japan tomorrow morning.
My mom spent all day in the library splitting her time between studying to retake her medical coding and billing exam as well as job searching for anything that will consider someone with a Master’s in Psychology and over 12 years of experience in the field. Until Clayton County stops bullshitting with her unemployment I’m the breadwinner for the house and I just became unemployed, hopefully just cyclically, my damn self. A brief tumblr break notwithstanding, what are most of the tabs in my browser reading? Psychology and counseling jobs, fellowships, grants, and training for psychology jobs and related fields, and emails to my favorite psychology professor to see if she has any leads and she said she’d converse with her colleagues. HUGE shout-out to Professor Frick. She’s kinduva big deal. (http://www.ajc.com/news/news/uga-council-to-vote-on-domestic-partner-benefits/nSLsj/)
Many a black male in a single parent household has gotten the: “You’re the only man in the house making you the man of the house. Act like it!” It’s taken to heart, but you don’t pay bills. You aren’t owed anything. Well today one part of that changed because of my mother’s financial situation. I’m not even sure that she couldn’t pay them herself but given all she has going on if I can let her mind breathe for a month I’m all for that.
At the beginning of the day I woke up with no problems and I’m going to bed the same way. Unwavering obligation and loyalty are requisites of love in this house, and I have no problem with that.
Peace and love
