I lost my job at the start of the pandemic last year. I haven’t found another one since. Unemployment has been paying me well and I have saved a lot from unemployment and the three stimulus checks alone. I still live with my parents and I don’t have any kids. I’m 24 years old. Since the pandemic I have been writing more, something I always enjoyed and I always did but didn’t have much time to when I was working, I also have been volunteering at an animal shelter for going on a year no just to get experience being around animals since I have a positive fascination for them and learning of their habitats, their natural behaviors etc and I’ve experienced so much and since doing it that I actually enjoy doing something for free. It’s like I’m in my happy place every-time I go but I see everyone else staring businesses selling things from purses, shoes, hair, makeup etc and then there’s me still working toward what I want and still researching and attempting to figure out the routes I need to take in order to achieve what I want to pursue and have a passion for.
