Happy Hump Day! How's everyone? Here's an insight to #inthelifeofnayamoss
I'm back in Romania for now! Never made it to Spain 👎🏾. Seems I'm closing in on a bit of stability, but you have seen my life's ups and downs in the past 6-8months, so let's see how the next few weeks play out before I get too excited.
Speaking of... life. For those active on Twitter, Keziyah Lewis announced she landed a new role at Webflow. I'm super happy for her! 🥳Keziyah boldly and openly talks about getting laid off, losing desire to apply for a new job, and I having very little interest in going back to work. For those who don't follow her, stop what you are doing, go follow her, check out Juniors in Tech, and subscribe to her newsletter. OK WAIIIIIIIT, AFTER you are done reading this one 😅.
I understand Keziyah more than you can imagine. Sometimes I see her tweets, and I feel seen and heard. As for finding a job, I've had that same anxiety 1-2 times in the past 6-9 months. I was very worried about money in January. Life worked itself out and financially I was ok from January to April. But thanks to a bad apartment deal, I found myself spending the past month or so house hopping and living out of Air Bnb's until I was able to find an apartment in Cluj.
During this time, even with being super careful I spent ~$3k. As most places were $300+ a week. This ~$3k was supposed to cover my rent for the rest of the year. Now, I'm looking for work again, or a way to supplement this loss. This is tough, considering I've only spent less than ~$4k on ALL living expenses from January- April. So when I say I can relate to Keziyah you can see why. This sort of uncertainty brings stress, anxiety, doubt and more. Not to mention the last time I was job hunting, I kept getting turned down because companies did not feel comfortable with me also spending my time on Culturefiy and Frauvis 🙄.
Now that living seems settled, I hope that finding work/income will follow along.
Once I gain some stability, let's all have a meetup? Check in or a workshop. I'll create the invite and it can be in about 2 weeks? I'll see what you ladies say in slack.
