The economy and me

Or in other words, my shadow and me.  Well, my shadow has cast itself across my personal finances and once again I am thrashing about trying to come up with a new business model and income source.  The income source that I had thought would be my fortune has not yet panned out due to the people I had counted on going out of business.  So, that means no business for them and no business for me either.  In the mean time, I am adding new skills to my arsenal and revisiting skills that I have not used in a while.  I will be seeking work as well as advertising that I am available to teach piano.  Luckily, I am living with fabulous roommates who are understanding and tell me just to look for work and they will cover the expenses around here until I can land a job.  That is so very nice of them.  I am simply the luckiest person in the whole world.  I live in a beautiful neighborhood, I have a roof over head, I have a cat, I have food in my belly, I have an education and work experience.  I have drive and desire to be financially independent.  What more could I possibly want?  I also have time to work on my skills (Photoshop, Final Cut Pro, as well as Office.)  I even have time to work on my physical fitness (more on that in my other blog.) My life is utterly blessed and I am just so grateful.  My life is just a miracle in so many ways.  From making it as a baby to surviving childhood and then making it out of teen hood barely scarred at all is truly a testament to the miraculous.  To now be aware of my blessings makes all of the minor difficulties seem surmountable.  Being out of an income is not trivial but it is, in my case, something that I have the skills and ability to take on.  Life is good and its only going to be getting better.  

Come on, lets go take some pictures.
