Time for a change

So I'm almost certain that where I am located, dwelling, work etc. has a direct affect on my mood. I am completely and utterly over my living "situation" and need to be out of this physical space by December 2011. I must. I can't do it. I may just be telling myself that I won't be able to last another year in the same place but I certainly feel completely deflated(crushed spirit) when I think about leaving the same place every morning and coming to the space every night. I am completely over it!


So instead of making this a complete woe is me post. I will query the world wide web and readers of this post. New York City apartment hunting.

How do you manage?

Any great Realty agencies? Any wonderful finds?

My need is urgent. View review deposit move! New Home here I come.

Dear Despondency ....Job search comes to a hault!!!Credit Report

Dear blog/diary,

Today is proving to be super unproductive. I have pulled my credit score on and to be 100% honest although I am not surprised by the results I am soooo upset mostly with myself . My outstanding debt ladies and gentlemen attributed to an 4month unemployment stint after being laid off 6 months after graduation in 2008. Then starting to temp for an agency that clearly believes its not cruel and unusual punishment to charge clients(my employer) 29.00/hr for my work and pay me 16.00/hr wages. Grand! Unable to pay rent,and the monthly installments on my private loans they are reported on my credit report the grand total $69,559.00 pardon my French, but what the F*c#!. No shoes, cars and irresponsible spending insight purely debt for an investment in myself. WOMP WOMP WOMP. For every highschool student who may see this it is imperative for your to be selective about your schooling and be on top of where you monies will come from to fund your time there. IMPERATIVE!!!Yes,yes I signed every promissory note and have all the copies of my idiocy recorded in a neat filing cabinet stashed and my families home. But the reality is I attended school for several reasons and one was to certainly increase my earning potential surely to surpass the 18 year old who chose not to attend any school after High School or GED. Merci beaucoup life!!!!!

I'm irritated / desperate for advice and assistance with paying down this debt so that I may continue to pursue my original plan which is to attend law school . Oh wait another conundrum am I confident that the investment of an additional $100,000 in law school student loans in the answer to my problems? UGHHHHH lol it isss I want and need to do this, I am secretly talking myself into a Suze Orman segment on the OWN . Am I the only fool going through this, fool maybe person no. There have to be more out there. Who's with me? Who wants to change this thing for the better.

As a matter of fact I think , I know that it is imperative that the liberal arts majors in the world shouldn't just switch to finance or the medical field just because. We still need poltical thinkers, analytics who have wide range of abilities and transferrable skillsets to adress the world's problems. Who's with me??????

Lastly, I found this really amazing site to assist with ideas on how to manage your young money if you have any (;-) it's called it really has many amazing tools to help you start to recognize the importance of making your money, what little you have, work for you now and down the road.

New York City Off-Track Betting Corporation Shut Down/Employees lose Income to bring in the New Year

On December 8, 2010 New York State Senators were charged with the responsiblity of passing legislation that would keep New York City Off Track Betting open for business generating upwards of 1 million dollars in handle ( profit) to be designated to state entities, help to cushion the NYS budget deficit.

The larger part of this story as , much like any news involving removing a business entity that employees nearly 1,000 employees is the fact that workers have been displaced, with very little in the way of support to transition into the job market.

As unfortunate as this has been I intend to be in contact with the political leadership responsible for this major FAIL!!!! and I certainly will find out how their respective offices plan to support their constitutents through this transisiton to job hunting.

For former Employees of NYCOTB/(anyone looking for job) Below are the links to few websites that may assist you in this process.

Lost 28 lbs and gained the majority of it back!!!!!!

So it has been a while since I have posted a piece on this here blog. But the truth is I have been enjoying my summer 2010. Thank GOD from 25th Birthday shenanigans to family gatherings, I have been super busy dancing and EATING.... :(

I was able to lose 28lbs. without a gym membership but through simply eliminating carbs for six days of the week and consuming only natural sugars via fruits and vegetables in super moderation. I also had half of a grapefruit after every meal, even a snack. Then I would walk to Union square or to Brooklyn from Midtown Manhattan. lol the difficulty with remaining consistent came when I had to volunteer on a political campaign and got stuck for an additional 5 hrs a day behind a desk making phone calls. But that's alright lesson learned.

The reality is now I know I can do it and making excuses won't get me anywhere but 50 lbs. heavier. I have indulged for far too long and it is showing in more ways than one. It is September 5, 2010 and I will be on another challenge. 25 by the 25th of October.
