Cape Town Journal: Entry #17

August 25th, 2021

Been sitting in bed sending out job applications all morning, I’m really starting to feel desperate because I’m running out of time. I’m even applying for jobs I’ve never even thought of doing!

I’ve been super busy updating old blog posts and working on my blog, it’s really done wonders in keeping me positive and busy. I really need to start monetizing soon. I’m tired of being broke and this is the last year I will ever not have money ever again, I don’t care what it takes or what I have to do anymore…

I was talking to my friend yesterday who told me I give up too easily because I mentioned that maybe I should go back home. It didn’t sit well with me at all!

I’ve been thinking of going back home because of how expensive it is to live in Cape Town. Places to live are not cheap! The prices for small apartments cost more than any monthly salary earned in my entire professional career at any of my jobs… DAMN!

Never thought I’d be this age having these problems but here I am trying to make the best of it. Coming to Cape Town was a huge leap for me in trying to change my life. So far I am doing better as a person, I just need to find a job.

Been doing great in not trying to dwell on what’s wrong in my life. I’m keeping my mental health in check so kudos to me!

There are still so many places I haven’t been to here like Lion’s Head, Charley’s Bakery ( I don’t even know if it still exists) and so many things I haven’t done. It would be a shame to have to leave without having experienced these things.

Your girl has a month left to find a job (still waiting to hear back from my interview at YOYO) and try to stand on my own two feet so wish me good luck!

Feel like it will work out and I’ll get a job though…

I haven’t worked out in so long because of the flu and I feel so unhealthy because of that.

Also, I need to go to a clinic for contraceptives because my skin is starting to look terrible.

Last week I was worried because I bled for like a week but apparently, stress does that! I was probably even more stressed than I thought…

Urg… I can’t even do paid writing jobs because people won’t work with bloggers with such a low D.A. I still need to buy a domain.

FML hahaha…

I was way too spoilt growing up, wasn’t I?

By the way, I registered to get the Covid vaccine and I know so many people are against it. Have you registered to get the jab? What are your thoughts?

P.S in the spirit of trying new things, I’ve joined TikTok!
