Praying For Everyone in the World


 I’m blogging today to say my thoughts and prayers are with everyone.As we go through this trying time together. Being that we have no idea what we are really facing.
  
  This Coronavirus has caused an uproar. One that no one was expecting, and nowhere near prepared for .And from the looks of things we currently have no cure for. 

One this has hit worldwide. It has literally hit every continent! 
  
 So, please utilize all of the precautions that you can(wash your hands and distance yourself from people). Isolate yourselves, your families, and limit your time outside.
   Again I’m praying for all of us! Even with everything I have going on; I had to stop and address this epidemic. That we can only pray they can get it under control soon. Right now it looks like they barely know what to do.

  I haven’t been feeling 100%. Mentality or physically )from my Multiple Sclerosis not the Coronavirus) which hasn’t had my focus right,so blogging definitely hasn’t been a priority.

Again be safe.Hopefully we’ll shake this thing and be back on track soon!

Surviving Multiple Sclerosis with Mzlittlejohn/Trying to find work

So, being that I’m out of work, sick, not making any money, in the mix of waiting for a disability determination, I'm attempting to find some type of part time work. Especially because I can only try to do it part time. And I don't have much experience.
I've worked as a Certified Nurse Aide, School Bus Driver, and I only have maybe a year's worth of college experience under my belt. So, I'm attempting to try something different.
This particular type of work is called voice over. After signing up for it, I realized that just my laptop isn't going to be enough to do so. So, I contacted my dad to get him to get me a microphone. I mean I’d have done it myself, but with Amazon Prime it comes faster. Sorry, I'm broke, so no, I couldn't afford that subscription. He in return told me no.
Anyway he told me to use my phone. I'm literally laughing about that. Because I’m thinking this type of work requires a PC. Not any type of mobile phone would help that. So I thought I'd look into it.
In doing so, I noticed that the recordings only come out as mp4. Yet, the site requires mp3. And of course, the Apple Store offers apps to help with that. And they were free to download; but after uploading the mp4, trying to convert it to mp3, it would require a payment.
Again, how the heck was I going to do that—and I'm broke. I am currently shaking my head (I'd put the abbreviation, but I don't want to have any issues publishing on here).
So with the last few dollars I did have, I invested in myself. Hopefully it'll work out in my favor.
Although you know my issue didn't stop there. After me acquiring the microphone, recording my first demos (yes demos I couldn't just do one), uploading them, I couldn't directly apply for the jobs (great right?). I now have to hope and pray I get responses without being able to apply directly.
I am not trying to pay nobody $499 to try and apply for jobs that probably aren't even guaranteed. Money is already an issue for me. Maybe I should say us, being that it’s not just me this affects. I’m praying that this works out. Eventually they could probably start doing the same to gain some extra money. Money that they could possibly be put into a savings account for the future.
I hope if this experience teaches them anything thing, it’ll teach them to plan better for later. Always plan ahead. I wouldn’t wish this on anyone, especially someone that has kids that are still in school. My youngest, as well as my young adults, have rocked with me through a lot. I appreciate them for still being by my side throughout all of this!
Anyway this is a funny first experience, and I hope you all get a good laugh out of this like I did. I hope that if this particular demo doesn't work that the ones in the future do.
I refuse to allow this payment issue to stop me from at least trying to gain work. I’m really interested in seeing where this will go. It’s something different. And I don’t think it can be too hard to do
What do you think? Would you ever try it? I mean I’m nowhere near being an actor. I just feel like it’s something that won’t take much time. And could probably be a lucrative opportunity.
Thanks for reading my story/stories, please share, and or donate as well if you like.
Have a great day, everyone!
