I’ve been away for a while. Basically, I got hit with unemployment.

I was working at Joann's, you see. Not enjoying it, of course. Then I got this excellent job at an orthodontist office. I was looking on Craigslist for dental assistant positions and every single one is looking for several years of experience. I finally found one job that was looking for people to train.

Was it the Lord? Yes indeed, it was.

But didn’t I say I was unemployed earlier?
Yes, I did.

...let me explain.

I get this job working for a brilliant doctor that is not only an orthodontist, but also a cranial facial surgeon who specializes in cleft pallets. He hires me with zero experience in dental.

 I was thinking, “This job is just going to take off. He can train me to work the surgeries with him! I’ll never need a new job again!”


He was a nightmare to work for. I ended up quitting after two weeks.

 So here I sit. An unemployed bum.


Bear left me. He didn't want to sit on the big empty couch with me.

When you are unemployed, your life becomes coffee, dogs, and bad self-timer pictures.
I'm trusting in what God has for me, though. He's got something up his sleeve.
Stay tuned for more unemployed adventures!



  1. Oh my gosh. "When you are unemployed, your life becomes coffee, dogs, and bad self-timer pictures." I just died at the accuracy of that statement. Our lives are literally identical hahaha.
