It was 3 AM, and I was staying up so that I didn't have to worry about getting up early the next day. The next day being moving day, oh joy. If you detected sarcasm that is probably because it was not an ideal situation for me. I was not packing up my family to go live in a brand new house with a white picket fence and a yard. No siree, I was moving back in with my folks. If any of you have been in my situation before, you know how much shame you feel in this moment. I had finally struck out on my own. I got a job, I had my own place, my own individuality and freedom. Then it all came crashing down.
My first job was at Cold Stone Creamery, and boy did I love that job. It wasn't until I took on more hours and more responsibility that it started feeling like a job. Even so, my co-workers loved me, my supervisors loved me, heck, even my customers loved me. My boss was another story. He started out super thrilled to have a hard working person like me on the job. Then it seemed as if his time of the month struck. (I apologize for that lovely image.) He began firing people left and right. I was the third to go. So I was unemployed with all of my bills. Anyone who has been in the situation of making enough to scrape by knows that there's really no spending to cut when your income disappears. I mean, it's not like I had gold toilet seats or anything. I lived in a one bedroom apartment where all of my expenses were either utilities, or internet. (Aside from rent of course.) Snoot at my internet if you will, but this isn't the 1990's anymore. If you want a job nowadays, you need the internet.
I finally got another job. This time at a company called Sykes. I was an AT&T representative, and a work at home employee at that! I was there for a while and even switched departments a few times. Everything was great, aside from some missing pay. (Yes, they're getting sued for that. Not from me, of course.) Then one day, I got laid off. Now with my rent at $655 a month (Yes, be jealous.) and my bank account showing only $520 I knew I was in trouble. So I finished breathing into my paper bag and called the folks.
Now how did I get here?
I was actually watching youtube videos and came across a comment about multigiftcards Don't get me wrong, it sounded 100% like a scam, but I'm desperate! So what does a desperate person do but turn to google to see if a place is legit or not. I came across this website: easierthanmcds and began to read. I loved the factual way that everything was typed out. It was indeed educational, but at the same time, you could feel that there was a person behind it. Someone humanizing the facts. I continued reading and found out about this site. Moments after joining Wealthy Affiliate, the owner of that page messaged me. My entire experience here has been so warm and personal. I feel like I truly have another shot at life. And the best part? I get to be my own boss for once. I'll tell you one thing for sure, if this all works out, I won't be firing or laying myself off.
Again, thank you for visiting my page, and feel free to message me about anything.
Best of luck to you and your sites,
AriaNozomu's Goals 3
Originally, I wanted enough money so that I could buy a house and pay for everything for 12 months without a job. That way, I have some wiggle room if I ever lost my job again. I think my goals have changed to buying a house and making a living.
Realistically, I'd be ecstatic to earn anything substantial. If I make $100 off of my site, you'd better bet I'll be doing a happy dance. I might even post it on my site!
