So this is probably going to be long, sorry in advance

I know it's been a while, and I haven't gotten nearly as much done as I thought I would by this point, frankly I barely have anything done at all. But I wanted to at least let you guys know what's been happening with me lately.

The past year has been extremely chaotic to say the least, I don't know if I mentioned that I had worked at McDonalds for 7 years (and am fairly certain I developed physical issues due to it, but that's regardless at this point) but I ended up quitting due to stress (I re-developed my constant nosebleeds from my childhood which miraculously stopped within a week of quitting) and not being paid what I should have been with new people making basically the same amount as me. I have a story about that and how I went about quitting, story for another time, the quitting part was kinda funny if not an accidental d**k move. Found a job that paid a bit more, plus paid breaks, PLUS 2 extra 10 minute breaks on top of the mandatory 30 minute lunch break, but it turned out to be seasonal and obviously they favored keeping their regular staff during the 'off' season over me, understandable. Ended up finding another job quickly afterwards at a casino and it was honestly pretty great, I was enjoying myself despite the customer service (plus the pay + tips was amazing compared to what I was used to getting, I was actually able to consistently deposit into my savings). But then I was considering what I wanted to do with my life because I knew I didn't want to stay there, good as it was it didn't make me really happy and I started thinking about wanting to get my own place and set up my own life, and after a bit of research I realized what I want to do, but I was living in the wrong town to follow it. Luckily my sister had previously already moved out of town to one that was more ideal, so one day she calls me saying a place would be open next month if I still wanted to live there, ended up requesting an extension via a deposit pay cause a month was too soon for me to take care of things, and I moved.

Before I moved, I tried applying at places near the address I was sent, and I actually did get a call back from one of them who did a quick phone interview, and mentioned they were having a job fair soon and that would be my best chance to get a job. I wasn't able to go cause I still worked at the casino in my hometown, so I had to hope they might still have an availability. I never heard back from them after that, even after I tried reaching out to them a couple times. Cue me being jobless for a couple months in a new town where I don't know anyone and nobody is responding to any of my applications. I got one response and 2 interviews (same job, different people) near the end, but after the second interview which I thought went really well I stopped getting responses from them too. My roommate was able to help me get a job finally a week ago, so I at least have income again, but honestly, I'm not really sure what I'm going to do moving forward. I try to make a plan, it falls through. After a few fall throughs I try to just sort of go with the flow, it doesn't seem to work the way I think it will and ultimately leads me nowhere again. I'm desperate for some stability but I don't know when or if I will get it, and between all that I can barely do things I enjoy anymore because there's just no time or motivation.

I figure I at least owe those who are still waiting patiently an explanation for my long silence. I think I need to focus on myself for a bit, try to figure things out, get a doctor and try to fix my body or at least figure out what's wrong. Maybe then things will get better.
