So, I took that interview I didn’t perform well in and applied to another full-time position. And I got it.
I choose to plan and prepare.
I choose to learn.
I choose to do my best.
I believe in myself and my abilities. Stay true to myself.

talkin’ to screens.
It gets difficult when I’m the only one at my crib.
It gets difficult when the few options I have to eat is spam and rice.
It gets difficult when I finish all the rice.
It gets difficult when I have an urge to order through DoorDash.
It gets difficult when I debate paying $50 for one meal.
It gets difficult when I already have hundreds of dollars in expenses for the month because of smog checks, and car renewals. // August 2022
It gets difficult when I debate on ordering the carne asada fries.
So, I’ma just listen to this podcast, and survive. I did tho.
Family came home w filipino food, in the evening.
From malls. From grocery stores.
Trying to find stuff to be sad about, because I’m used to depression.
There are songs that help me cope, grieve, and purge.
I got the job.
All I could remember during my interviews is before them I would think of my friends, hyping me up, which gave me more confidence to believe in myself too. (A walking masterpiece.)
Eventually, I will get to a point where I’m self-employed.
