Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

I've been up a while this morning and have come to two conclusions.

I've been up a good four hours. I made CC cookies and did a basic clean of my kitchen. Bf and Steven (ds) are asleep. Eating fresh baked cookies in an unusually unorganized kitchen when the only one awake will make you think. My prime thought was "what the fuck am I doing with my life". I just got a job that's from 4-8 AM weekday mornings. My bf can't get a job and were living with my mom. I mean besides my job I do whatever my family needs. I pack lunches make breakfast and dinners take sibling to appointments. I do anything my mom asks like last week she needed a dress brought back to kolhs to get a security tag removed and a ring from her collection then delivered to work. So I got it done.
I do nothing but watch a 10 month old with my bf all day. TV parks beach really not much.
So I realized that I'm not using my time properly. I'm 19 I'm not old I've got a chance to make changes. The first will start with my kitchen which needs a deep cleaning with hot vinegar and hot bleach water.
The second is I'm going to go back to school. I'm going to get a degree or certification in something but I need more then a 20/ hr per week job packing boxes into bags at UPS for 9.50 an hour.
I don't know what for but I'm going to the community collage on Monday and am going to get a list of all offer courses. Next ill apply for the pell grant and anything else I can. It's education or bust and with my son I can't afford not to succeed.

On a side note the cookies are amazing.

Not to be a bitch because I'm overweight myself, but eating cookies first thing in the morning is not exactly a good idea.

Good luck with everything else.

No one calls back. Around here you have to know people. My mom got me into my new job.

Lol my sis just got up and told me the same. I think it's good for the soul once in a while. I probably won't touch sweets for a week after this. It's weird I'm not a usual morning eater either.

Starting college was the best thing I managed to do right after I had my son. You'll be happy you did it. I agree with another poster: take at least one business class. They're useful even if it bored me to death, haha.

Where there is a will there is a way.
I live in a small town and even.I knew as a teen looking for work, don't wait for them to call you. You call, show up, shows them you are determined and shows interest.

Good job. But I have advice. Take it or leave it

I spent 25k on a college degree. I am not using it.

If bf isn't getting call backs, he needs to walk in and say 'hi I am so and so checking up on my application '

Check with your local municipalities for work. I was laid off three years ago. I was devastated. That was my hot ticket. I have since climbed my way up and am.doing phenomenal plus I work.9 miles from home.

Two jobs is always better than one. And dont forget to look at off and end jobs. Old people homes animal shelters. Those places are usually always hiring.
