I have to say it. Blogging is difficult. Blogging with any consistency is the only way to gain popularity. If I’m not consistent, I’m wasting my time. I started my book review blog (Update 2019: No longer live. All book reviews are found here on this site) and it was a struggle just to get it done. I felt like I was writing a paper. I was thinking about doing two blogs on this WordPress page a week. But that is starting to seem like a lot. Especially if I want to review 1 book per week in addition to that. And even that seems overwhelming.
The only way I can turn blogging into a career is if I do it. I know, I’m complaining like I hate it or something. When something becomes an obligation it becomes way less fun. I’m just writing to be writing right now.
I want to get a full-time job. It will be much easier to buy a car if I have full-time income. Income= eligibility for a car loan. Still, I have no clue what on earth type of “real” job to even look for. I have my bookstore job, and if I couple that with a federal work-study job, I will have full-time income.
Then, when I have a car, all my transportation problems will be solved. No more 12 hours of bus time. I live 20 minutes (tops) from where I work. A car will allow me to spend less time waiting around for buses I miss by mere seconds. What kind of place have public buses that only run once per hour on weekdays no less?!?! 2 more months of this.
To get a car, I have to learn all there is to know about cars. That way some tubby man in a sales suit won’t pull one over on me. Knowledge is power baby! I want to be able to lift up the hood, sniff around and make ’em real uncomfortable.
I don’t feel like writing anymore. I said my piece. Look for updates later in the week. I’ll probably post some creative work, something on writing music, and more about how my parents are cutting me loose.
