It is now my fifth day back in Brooklyn, and all is going well. Cable came today to hook up my Internet, and the rest of my things arrived via UPS. I will be hitting the job trail full fledged starting tomorrow. I have a number of leads so far, and hopefully one or two of them will come through. I have an interview tomorrow for one job that is just weekends. I would work from three pm Friday to noon on Sunday. That job alone constitutes a full-time job and comes with benefits. My plan is that I would then get a part time job during the week.
I have not seen my kids yet. I tried to call today but got no answer. Still Wondering is of the opinion that since I am taking these few initial days to get myself set up with a job, and other things I need to settle in that it is proof that I moved here for selfish reasons, and that I am acting in a self-destructive manner. What do people want me to do? What do they think would be a better route for me to take? Is getting a good job and becoming self-dependent a destructive behavior?
In any event, this is the course I have laid out for myself. It is the right one, and I will persevere.
