Volunteer Position

For the first time since I lost my job I was up before the sun.

I went back to my morning ritual of having my breakfast in the company of the folks at the Today show. I left my apartment at 7.23 on the dot to take my place among the thousands on their way to work.

Except that while I passed commuters waiting for their buses, I was just on my way to help out my parents by driving my brother and sisters to school.

I know, I'm an awesome daughter. Due to some unforeseen car troubles, it looks like I will be something of a bus driver for the next few days. That's a job right? Think I can pad my resume with that? A volunteer position perhaps?

Probably not.

On a glorious morning like today, it wouldn't have been such a hardship to get up and head to work (I'm so not a morning person). But I haven't completely lost my marbles- I well remember the mornings fighting with my umbrella in gale force winds while passing buses spray road water in my path.

So to the smug employed commuters I say: bad weather is a comin'! I'll wave to you from my warm, dry car as my siblings do their best impression of well behaved kids.

  1. Hey,

    Have you thought about monetizing your blog? Ya know, putting the ads on the blog so if people click you get paid? Just a thought.


  2. I have thought about it in the past but I feel like it would be pennies you know? I think that a lot of people actually have to read a blog for that to become helpful. Am I wrong?
