Another year is over, which means it’s the season for reflecting. Instead of looking back in regret or disappointment, take a moment to consider all that you’ve done and learned–and the exciting part of continuing into 2016. Happy new year!
It’s hard making new friends after college. It’s also hard keeping friends after college. Friendship is hard, yet vital to our well-being. Brenda gets into the ugly truth of the trap of saying no, and some advice to cope with sudden loneliness one gets in their twenties.
Finally (or unfortunately?), some one-on-one time. Brenda catches you up on self-employed life thus far, then shares her ideas about self-identity vs. career after college. What would you say when you begin the statement, “I am”? Do you use the word “aspiring” too much? Time to rethink and re-approach how you identify yourself to the world.
Brenda shares her experience of two types of negative people in the world, and gives advice on how to handle them–so you don’t become one yourself. Also having made the leap to self-employment, she encourages you to no longer be afraid!
Two episodes ago, Brenda talked about the Value of Unemployment, highlighting the unmentioned benefits to being unemployed for a time. Today’s episode, she explores the not-so-happy stuff, and the common feelings of dejection and poor self-worth one has when searching for work. But with every dark tunnel comes a light at the end!
Happy Monday, everybody! Brenda embarks on a rather familiar journey of her life: (f)unemployment. She goes into detail of what happened, and dissects the fresh thought process that went through her head in the hours afterward. The question still remains: what’s the next step?

Finally, the cat is out of the bag: Brenda is QUITTING her job for another opportunity!

Then let this episode inspire you. [Intro song: Beyoncé – “Yonce”]
This is the first episode of 2014, bitches! Brenda shares some of her resolution progress about fitness, tips on not giving up, and then talks about how her mother is going to charge her rent. Yeah, HAPPY NEW YEAR! [Intro song: Bastille – “Pompeii”]

I haven’t been able to sleep “properly” as of late. Granted, I’m still unemployed, meaning sleep is all kinds of fucked up for me (like, waking up before noon will get me a pat on the back––from myself), but it’s bad. Like really bad. See the timestamp for this blog post?
Now the reason for being unable to sleep is different than what I’m used to; I’m not depressed. At least not yet. I suppose you could say I’m more anxious. Perhaps this is embarrassing to admit, but I think I’ve already embarrassed myself enough, so fuck it. Continue reading
