As of recently I left my full time job for Bon Appetit (assigned at William Jessup University) to work for a temp agency called Acrobat Outsourcing. The reason I quit was because I was driving thirty minutes to and from work. I drive an SUV now, so you can imagine the gas the car was needed. It damn near drunk forty dollars every three days.

The reason I quit was because I was driving thirty minutes to and from work. I drive an SUV now, so you can imagine the gas the car was needed. It damn near drunk forty dollars of gas every three days.
So I went back to a temp agency making the same amount per hour and just enough to pay my necessary bills. However there’s a much bigger advantage to working for a temp agency: I have a lot more time to work on this writing career. And I’m seeing some serious improvements.
At the time of this post I’m writing almost three to four hours a day. I’m posting about four times a week and started my second book. My second book will be my prison camp experience and thoughts on the whole culture of prison. My goal, of course, is the post five times a day. So I’ve slowly getting there.
My social media is improving as well. I’m able now to read actual articles online and in magazines. When you read more, the more interesting topics you can come up with. With more interesting topics, I’m able to have more interesting conversations on Facebook and Twitter. Not to mention, I’m able to interact with more people now. The more interaction I have, the more my social media will improve my traffic and book sales.
I’m also eating better too. No more eating junk in a hurry. No more eating once a day. All of which I’ve been doing to save time and money. Now I’m not rich by any means. But because of my time, I could spend time cooking food! I mean like veggies, pasta, and lean meat.
I’m back to working out three times a week now. My goal is to workout five to ten times–two days off and working out once or twice a day. Not trying to get ripped or strong, I just want my head to stay focus. I’ve noticed the more I workout, the more focus I am, the more productive I am.
All the above is part of my post-prison plan to do what really matters to me. I want to do things that make me happy. I want to feel good when I wake up and start working.
This to me is proof I’m on my way for that. But I still have a long way to go.
