Has anyone ever had a pap and felt the awful pressing urge to pass gas during the exam?
Perhaps this makes me a bad person for thinking/feeling this, I dunno. Every time I see someone on the side of the street holding a sign and begging, I just want to scream at them.
Now, my life has not been perfect. I try not to judge, since I was helped when I was going to school and had no job. But, I did not beg and I did not ask for the assistance that was given. I guess that is why I have a hard time seeing people beg. Of course, it could just be the skeptic in me and sees a person fully capable of doing for him/herself that really doesn’t need assistance, but is scalping money off innocent strangers. I mean my logic is: if they can stand there in the heat all day long while holding a sign, then what is keeping them from going somewhere and even trying to look for work?
It took me six months to find a job, and lots of times I just wanted to give up, but I didn’t…I kept going at it, willing to accept that I won’t get the job of my dreams or the job I actually went to school for. I reevaluated my situation (many times) and decided that sitting around feeling sorry for myself was getting me nowhere.
I have been told by some that “I’m not as strong as you.” Hell, I’m not strong. Strong people don’t give up or say they give up. I have said it many times; therefore, I am weak. But what I am is a stubborn, willful, pig headed individual. I may give up one day, but the next I am back at it, trying a different approach to the one I tried the day before.
I never did like the fact that my Chinese zodiac animal is a pig. I think I now understand why it is.
