Me & My Muse – Day 228: Professional Improvement Day

Or a PID.  In Toastmasters International, that would stand for Past International Director.  In this case, we will go with the abbreviation as I define it:  Professional Improvement Day.

Why is this the case?  Two events are going on to improve myself as a professional.  One of them has already happened and the other one has yet to take place.

The first event was meeting with a contact that was given to me at my Michigan Works meeting that I had on Wednesday.  He came to my house and talked about my employment competencies.  After talking with him, he set me up with a Job Coach at Kelly Services.  Through Kelly, I might be getting a job very soon.

The second event is a Michigan Works meeting at noon.  The person that I will be speaking to at this meeting will help me in overcoming my barriers in employment.

Later on, I work at the pizza pit from 4 to 8.  I hate this shift, as I would rather work from 2 to 6.  By the time that I finally start enjoying myself, it will be about nine o’ clock at night!


Muse:  See?  I told you!  Your next job is closer than you think.  Just wait and see….

We’ll just wait and see what happens.  For now, I need to have lunch and get ready for this meeting.

Muse:  I’ll get another chapter read on my book.  Talk to you later!


So that’s today in a nutshell.  Event 1 of my Professional Development Day has happened.  Event 2 has yet to come.

Today’s high is going to be 34 degrees and the silver lining is being one step closer to full-time employment.


To those of you who are making progress in any kind of endeavor, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  Just three more chapters to go and this one will be done.  Now for the confrontation!  I wonder how this will turn out?
