Job Hunting ~ My Way…

Photo by fauxels on Pexels.com

I got up today with a plan to not just look for a job,

 but look for the right job. The things I have done before, 

 just aren’t good enough today, and I know the meaning of  

“Live and Learn ” is more than just words.

The last time I was out of work,

I would apply for everything I thought I could do.

I would go to every mall and surrounding areas asking,

“Are you hiring,” And was told

I could either fill out an application in the store or online.

If I was lucky to get an interview, yeah, and hope for the best.

I would accept any job, because I knew I needed to work.

I do NEED a job, but I want to be happy.

I may be pushing that ‘feeling,’ but I am hopeful.

I am going all out on looking for companies that I want to work at 

and NOT work just to be working.

I spent five and a half hours today doing just that.

I came across a GOOD home base job,

but I cannot type 25 wpm (NOW)

I know what I can do,

how I can improve what I already know,

 and get the job where I want to be.

Its time to get back to

My Job Hunt.

I keep telling myself   I am not going to let my email account get so full of useless emails again, and yet I have countless unwanted emails to delete . I guess there isn’t anything I can do, but make sure I delete as many as I can each day.. ..   ..  ..

I got to thinking what else have I been overlooking. I started thinking about goint back to New York to visit and I remembered I took some time off from going to different states online, but it is time to get through what I had started. 

I just went out of order in my count Massachusetts #21 and Not #22. I will change that before I looking into the real #22 Michigan

Well, I am going to get something to eat before I do anything, because who can do anything on an empty tummy….

Stay or Run?

Ever decide to do something without thinking about the outcome or deciding to do something when you are upset or scared? When you are having mix feeling one should think about deciding a big change. I got scared at work and went out for another, only the other maybe even a bigger mistake.

I am grateful for the job, but if you are not safe at where you are working. Why should you stay there? Then you go back to where you were at before, knowing it wasn’t all that good, but you know you need a job.

Is it better to stay or go? Your mind is overflowing with so many thoughts, so many feeling, and a lot more questions then you have answers for. Its time to close ones eyes to what they are watching and thinking about what you want to see and how you want to feel.

I want to have an enjoyable work space, I enjoy talking and helping others. I also like to be creative as I keep things in order. That all changes when there is a rude person trying to harm ones personal space. Is it worth to stay and fight or go somewhere safe?

There is a saying, “Run away and be safe, so you can fight another day,” or something like that. There are times when you have to fight, but there is also a time to be safe. Then again who says its right to stay where you are if you aren’t happy.

I rather be happy and not be looking left and right all of the time. Sometimes the water is calm and you know its going to be a good peaceful day. Then there are times when you have to be on guard and make sure you are safe.

Q & A about Spices…..

I know ginger is good for your tummy and turmeric is good for you as well. I was told a few times how black pepper works great with the turmeric, because it absorbs better.

There were also a few videos on facebook showing a mixture of honey, turmeric, and ginger. The problem I had with that was knowing a tiny jar will get lost and forgotten in my fridge, so I did this my way.

My way (now) is: A teaspoon of honey  topped with powdered turmeric, ginger, and black pepper. 

I  also add these spices to some hot lemon water, but it is way too hot for that. I am sure there are more ways for these species. Had to ask another question –

First Answer: {} What are the benefits of taking turmeric ginger and black pepper? Having a mixture of turmeric, black pepper and ginger in warm water early in the morning gives a nice boost to metabolism.

Turmeric is a very strong antioxidant and has been used as traditional Ayurvedic medicine throughout history. It is considered a herb that cleanses the whole body, especially the liver. It is used to support digestion, treat fever, infections and inflammations. The active ingredient in turmeric is called curcumin and has been proved to have similar effects as anti-inflammatory medicine. Turmeric and black pepper is a great pair to match. The black pepper helps to enhance the bioavailability of curcumin by a thousand times. Turmeric has a slight bitter taste but blends very well with other flavors.  {}

Celery Juice or Not?

I had saw celery juice in the store, but walked passed it. I saw it a few time on facebook, but never gave it a second look. I made a sour face thinking why would I drink something green?

I started thinking about how I can add more healthy food items to my diet, so I can get back to a better me, and stop taking all of these meds. Once again someone was talking about celery juice.

Guess who bought a bag of celery and just cut up a few pieces before I actually knew what to do with it. I was just thinking about adding a little water and putting it into my mini NutriBullet.

Then I thought I should see how it is actually done, if I was wrong.

Rachael Ray Show

Hannah Bronfman — who has over 500k Instagram followers — calls celery juice her “healthy obsession.” Here’s how to make it. {}

** I love the Rachael Ray Show and I know she has some great ideas, so of course I clicked on this. I was all in until  Ms. Bronfman said this drink should be drunk in the morning on an empty tummy. She did say you can make it the day before, but it’s best the day you make it. This would be a no for me, because of my work schedule. I may try it on an off day.

I wasn’t ready to give up on it. One more video..

Joe Duff – The Diet Chef  Celery juice has become incredibly popular. Today, I’ll show you how to make celery juice in a blender, and without a juicer! WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS: https://www.thedietchefs.com/celery-j…   {}

This video said almost what I was thinking, but the extra work to get to the juice has me saying, “no” once again.  I still would like some more info. 

**side note: I thought I was going to be making some celery juice to take the place of one of the glasses of water I am making myself drink,  but that idea went up in flames.  

I asked google about celery juice and this caught my attention: https://www.eatingwell.com/article/291470/celery-juice-the-health-benefits-side-effects-and-science-behind-the-trend/ 

Yes, there was more, but I am done. When I got up for another cup of water I saw the celery I had already cut up. I knew I wasn’t going to just snack on them or throw them away. Since it was almost 1 o’clock in a salad it goes. 

I jazzed up a salad I made before (that didn’t have celery or tomatoes in it, but it was good.  I did add in a little ranch dressing in it as well. https://thestayathomechef.com/cucumber-salad/ 

I learned how to eat with chopsticks a few weeks ago and can’t stop eating with them, even when it’s not a California roll. After a light snack and another cup of water. I am going to start on my red project.
