Feeling Run Down
I'm feeling stressed. I make good money - I'm lucky to have gotten out of retail hell and into a career, but Honeybun is struggling to find work.
He's been looking for a second job diligently, but it's been difficult. Our area doesn't have much work - it's why I drive an hour every morning into the city. It's getting to him. He doesn't have any college education, and though he's self-taught and amazing with his hands, nobody wants to take a chance on a young man with no higher education. We had both started 2018 unemployed, and it'd taken 6 months for us to find jobs with daily searching. He joined retail, and I joined the corporate world.
He wants to go further. Thinks about going to school to be an aircraft mechanic. He's wanted to work on and fly planes since we skydived the first time. I encourage him, but we have to find the money to send him to school.
We've both been depressed and desperate to spend alone time together to recharge each other, but we cant. It's rainy season, we can't afford to go out, and Uncle never leaves our townhome. Honeybun and I are never truly alone.
