The Good News
In the past few weeks, I have networked with more people. I have found a few groups of people specializing in the field that I would like to get a career in. I have went to career fairs, and got a couple of good leads.
I am starting to feel more positive that something will happen if I wait. I received a request to tutor a student for a few weeks over the summer, which will be good income until something more stable comes along. A company that I talked to at the career fair sent me an email and asked me to apply on their website.
I have made efforts to deal with the stress. I am going out to various free or cheap events in the city. I start thinking more positive thoughts when I am surrounded by people. I also go to zumba class, which is not only great for stress but helps make sure I don’t gain weight. I need to look awesome for that interview.
The Bad News
I have still not heard anything about my health insurance. I may need to be a little proactive on this point or I could be in trouble. Why is it taking so long to process my application? Fortunately, I already have a person that I can call to get help.
I have been stress eating from time to time. I have been eating a lot of chocolate and fudge. I started drinking coffee again, which is not good for anxiety (among other things). Overall, I have been eating too much. I’m lucky that I haven’t gained much weight, but I need to curb that habit soon.
