I Was Sent To Cut You Loose, I Will Never Re-Undo You
Miss (Forced) Positive Thinking has been doin' ok these days, for the most part.
It's a combination of ignorance, pretend oblivion, newfound lack of caring about certain things and a sense of "Waitasec... I'm so much better than this!" And KA-BLAM! - instant boost. Maybe it's not the right way to do things, but I'll take it.
So it's been four months since I moved back to Niagara. Perhaps I misjudged my li'l hometown trip, because it definitely didn't end after two months.
I'm not going to beat myself up about that any longer. Some things are beyond my control, and I've yet to give up. Imagine that!
And so, I'm branching out a little bit. Alongside my search for full-time Toronto writing jobs, I've also decided to go back to freelancing but push it further. A lot further.
A spiffy new pro website is in the works and its main purpose will be to sell your Shamble-y Rambler friend to folks who require services of the writing variety. A lot of advertising/PR/marketing companies and small businesses need writers, but not on a full-time basis. Contract work, projects, part-time gigs... I'm looking at you.
Let's see how this goes.
Of course, since I'm putting this out to the public, I'll probably find a full-time job tomorrow. In that case, pretend this post never existed.
(Pssst.... that probably won't happen. So remember me if you have any contacts or writing needs. My long-distance relationship with the city of Toronto thanks you in advance for trying to get us together again. Aw.)
And that's the extent of my professional update.
As for my personal life?
Well, a girl's gotta have her secrets. And this girl wouldn't quite know where to start...
Sneaky little wiley bitch I am, perhaps. But you'll never really know, will you?
