Trying to remind myself there's a good reason why I'm broke and cold and have to work my ass off for the next few months

So my life continues to play cruel little jokes. Just as things start to look good and jobs start heading my way, I get a job at a hotel. I went out bought myself some suits, and started working my ass off to learn everything there is to know, a week later they cut my hours (cuz the girl that originally left wants her hours back). So technically I still work there, yet i haven't worked in a week and a half, and any other jobs I may have had a chance with are now also gone. So now I have to start all over again in my hunt, but on the plus side, i now know i look pretty damn good in a suit, hahaha. Anyway I plan to go plant trees in northern Ontario in May (assuming my appointment at the allergist goes well, beause trees and I haven't been the best of friend lately) and until then I'll just try to find whatever job I can, or if something better comes along I'll stick with that for awhile. either way I have A LOT of work to do before I can head out on my next adventure...
Until then I spend a lot of my time looking at these things, just to keep my sanity and remind me that the reason life is being a bitch is because life was unbelievably amazing and beautiful not too long ago:

yup! I hear you on the sucky hotel bit! I went to school for 2 years in Hotel & Restaurant Management, graduated got a job in Aug at a hotel, worked ridiculously long hours, no breaks sometime 13 days straight, then I went from Thanksgiving to December with only 1 shift. That's the hotel life! No stability, who can pay rent on no shifts!!! So I totally understand your frusteration with hotels! I'm not even working in one now, and I have no plans to do so in the future!

Hope you are getting better luck now!
