I had two days off from my full-time job. So needed! My next day off is Super Tuesday (March 3). Not too bad. Today I took my dog to the park despite it only being 38 degrees.
Here is my dog being a typical pup:
I hope I get to stay in all weekend, but I never know when other people have plans with MY time.
The local virtual assistant job is over. Thank god. I don’t think I will be taking a local PT job for a while. I only want 100% remote. The other VA job is going okay. The only part that sucks is that she wants me to cold call places. BTW, that is not a typical VA task, plus she didn’t advertise it. I wouldn’t have applied if she mentioned that. I have social anxiety online. I DON’T DO PHONE CALLS…especially calling random people. Hell, no.
So I don’t know what’s going to happen with this position. She isn’t paying, but I’m getting GOOD coaching from her. She deserves work from me. I’m working on the other tasks, it’s just the calling that leaves me anxious and unable to act.
Praying for a miracle.
Election 2020: So many people (19 million) watched the debate this week. They got to see how much Bloomberg sucks, and how Warren can eviscerate anyone. Bernie did well or okay. He wasn’t attacked too much. Amy and Bloomberg had bad nights. Pete was Pete. Biden kind of had more energy, but he wasn’t 100% clear. Biden is doing better in debates than he did 3 months ago.
Warren raised a ton of money after the debate. Bloomberg fell in the polls (YAY!). But there is another debate for South Carolina. I expect Bloomberg to be a little better. To be fair, this was his first time on a presidential debate stage. But he is still a racist, sexist fuck. 😉 He funds some Democratic things like climate change. But he was a Republican. He supported George W. Bush. He’s a conservative, and I don’t vote for conservatives just because they throw their money at a few progressive issues.
I’m voting for Warren on Super Tuesday. I was going to vote for Sanders, but I have a tradition of always voting for my FIRST CHOICE in the primary. I voted for Howard Dean in the primary, even though he had no shot of winning. Sanders is my 2nd choice. I’m going to try not to vote for Sanders. That would be a strategic vote. I want to vote with my heart because, unlike Bloomberg, I have one. #Dig
This week I…

Weekend Plans: Hopefully relaxing a little and working on virtual assistant stuff. I have a website for my VA services now. I need more examples of my work. I really need to figure out what I want to focus on. I thought it was going to be Podcast management, but I did a little of that and I was bored. Plus, it’s hard. LOL. I might focus on Pinterest since everyone wants a Pinterest manager. I got Pinterest to work for MY website, but I’ve never done it for anyone else.
Thanks for reading! Have a great week. 🙂
