This Is What I Do for a Living

Dear Accuser,

You know who you are, and I wanted to say something to you and anyone else who thinks they know who I am and what I do with my time. It's not that I actually care what you think of me, but I do get tired of you following me around, analyzing my text,  and then twisting every word that I write to whatever your sick mind develops. I think it's pretty sad that after all these years, you still don't get that I'm not a hooker. You still don't understand that I'm an honest individual, and if I say that I'm doing something, that's exactly what I'm doing. If I say that I'm not doing something, well that's the truth, as well. 

I am a freelance writer and a transcriptionist. That's what I do to make my money. I work part-time as a cashier, as well. That's how I earn my pay. Nothing more, nothing less, and definitely nothing unholy or illegal. But you just can't wrap your narrow, twisted mind around it, can you? I'm not who …

Just One Ride

Right now, I'm trying to fight a massive headache and nurse an arm that's still very sore. It was a pretty good day because I got to get in my car and drive to the post office and then to Subway. I haven't driven my car much in about six months. Last September, the head gasket blew, and I went on a mission to DIY it. Like I said before, I had no option but to either try it or be without a car forever. 

I'm unable to get a car loan, so it's not like I can simply "Sell it and get something better" like some people try to advise me to do. I can't afford to pay a car note anyway. Besides, no perfect vehicle exists. That's where I clash with other people. They rant and rave about Toyota this and Honda that and blah blah XYZ foreign vehicle. My first car was a Mazda. I paid my hard-earned money for it, and it broke down within a month of having it. I owned a Toyota Celica in my younger days. I had a Nissan 240SX and a Subaru Brat too. None of those cars …

What to Do When Life Gets Frustrating

Frustration is one of those emotions that no one ever wants to feel. We darn sure don't want to ever admit that we go through it, yet we all do. Every person on the planet has been frustrated at some time or another for some reason or another. It doesn't matter what race, gender, faith, or economic status one carries. Something can always peeve a person off. 

What does one do when life gets frustrating, though? What does a person do when the whole thing is just like...ugh? What do you do when you constantly take two steps forward only to be kicked 12 steps back? What do you say when you do your best, and it just isn't good enough? How about when you get tired of being the underdog even though you have an absolute and complete understanding of why you're the underdog? What do you do?
