WHERE DO I TURN

PANDEMIC WOES

Ever since the lockdown stemming from the Corona Virus, countless people have lost their jobs across the country. Some people had very amazing careers that halted and now they are in limbo. Even myself have been in a weird position since the lockdown from last year. I have had to make some major adjustments including traveling a longer distance for the new job I have which gives me less time for anything else. I went from working and building my resume in other areas to working and sleeping, which causes a lot of anxiety and depression, but I have held on. On the other hand hand there are those that don’t.

MAKE SOMETHING UP

I was the news and saw that here in New York City people who were Broadway actors taking on roles as custom florists and chefs. It’s some of the weirdest things that some people have had to that is so different from what they actually do. I am at Amazon fulfillment center where you have people that used to be school teachers. These instant job shifts leave people mentally broken because they are doing something that under normal circumstances would not be doing. Creating something to do and finding work is daunting in a world where you’re encouraged to not go outside. Once the world reopens, who knows what will transpire.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Philippians 4:13

STUCK IN THOUGHT

I have been over the past months trying to figure out how to make the best of my situation. This pandemic is hurting emotionally and making you fear month to month. So how do you turn your life around and make some changes where you can turn a bad thing good? Because going another year of this will bring the country on the brink of massive unrecoverable collapse. Whatever the case may be, people are closely watching the new administration in the White House and their decisions.

A HISTORY OF MISTRUST

NO VACCINE FOR ME

There is a history of mistrust with the United States government and the African American community. So it is no wonder that this is a group where the vaccines are not being taken the most. Even though the Black population has been dealing with the Corona Virus the worst of any group. And being the worst hit group, still at a high risk, yet won’t take the vaccine means more problems. So what must be done to ensure that the vaccines are not as bad as the community might think?

MEDICAL MADNESS

Ever since the Corona Virus broke out, a community has been the face of the illness in America. But why won’t Black community take the vaccine? Well, there are historical relationships that have not been mended regarding the medical community and the Black community. The relationships can only be described as both sinister and suspect. Now, do I see that as a way that the medical community practice now, I can’t say for certain. Yet there is a problem which aims at why the vaccines have not been taken. And if the community aren’t prepared, then Back people could be in an even more vulnerable position.

CURBING THE PAST

Moving on from the bad experimentations all the way to the lack or care for Black women in labor. There is a bad blood relationship as to why so many Black don’t even have a lot of doctor’s visits. It just becomes a problem to go get a routine check. Well, how do you change this mind frame. One is to make sure there is a good outreach to community regarding the fears of a community. Also, more careers in medicine should be marketed to a community where there are trusted men and women in the hospitals themselves.

YOUR JOB VERSUS YOUR CAREER

FOR A LIVING

So many people if you ask them what they do for a living, they will tell you that they do “_______” for a living. Most people will tell you they go to their job, and those with a career say they go to work. It’s weird because after a while, isn’t your career your job. And the way we have decided to group them is different. A career is what we see as something more specialized or a work related place of employment with potential growth. The job is more geared toward given a wage for coming to work.

The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.

STEVE JOBS

FOR BETTER OR WORSE

Which direction should you go in when choosing a means of income? Do you want a job or do want a career? Because a lot of people grow up and dream of having a career. But you never hear people say I just want a job. We hear this and say to ourselves, that doesn’t sound appealing. But most of of have jobs in society. And you even have a large demographic of job/career people. Meaning, a construction worker can be seen as someone with a job. But if you own your own landscaping business then your career is your job. Now on the other hand a doctor is always going to be seen as a career driven type of employment.

BELIEVE THE PROCESS

You want to be the person who is trying to move on from your day job and move into your career. Well then, you know what you have to do? Figure out the thing that you want to do in life and then you’re going to have to build on that for years. That’s right, for years. Most people have this place they want to see themselves, but they are more concerned with getting there than learning along the way. This means the person getting frustrated early on and walking away. And they ultimately end up giving up on the thought of ever having a career.

GOD BLESS THE SUN

VITAMIN D

As the winter months approach, I always have these issues as it pertains to me and Vitamin D. And the reason being is that like a lot of people, I don’t get enough sunlight. Especially when you live in a cold climate, you’re always indoors. So I deal with the fluctuations in weight even hair loss. This makes me very paranoid, but then I remember that it is that tie of the year where this always happens. And it has progressed the older I have gotten. When I grew up in Wisconsin, it never really was a problem. It does have me contemplating moving to a warmer climate.

SUBSTITUTES FOR SUNLIGHT

I have been tempted to take certain supplements which will give me the boost I need during the winter months. This way I can go about my daily life without going through the loss of appetite and hair loss. Because if you’re a relatively healthy person, it does become bothersome when you have these things happen. Now, for the people who just ignore these occurrences, they end up getting sicker not knowing why. It’s the reason you have to listen to your body and ask questions at the doctor’s office.

MOVING FORWARD

As you start to figure out your body, you will be able to see things early on before they get to bad. Another aspect of keeping your levels of Vitamin D up is to exercise and eat right. Because things will arise, that’s just the facts of life. But with eating right, getting the right amount of sunlight, and exercise, the bouts of sickness typically last a shorter period of time.

THE POWER OF PEOPLE

WHEN IN ROME

Over the past week, the country has been discussing the situation concerning the company Gamestop. And no, this is not a finance platform, but it does cover culture. This is a beginning of what could be a new cultural revolution. The masses coming together to make money in the same fashion that the Wall Street types have been doing for over a century. It has caused so much panic that the very same people who speak against regulations are now talking about regulatory programs. How will this play out in the long haul is yet to be seen.

FED UP OR JUST GOFFIN AROUND

When we observe this situation, was this something that was orchestrated to stick it to Wall Street? Or better yet, a group of people coming together to test an experiment which worked in their favor. We as the people have these internal feelings regarding the circumstance at hand. But who is to say that it was something personal. It could be just a random thing that took place. Yet it is going to force people on Wall Street to rethink how they conduct themselves. Because the website Reddit is the site where a finance group was formed that caused this surge in stock prices to Gamestop. Now, on the other hand, will we start to see more regulations that could see a lot of Americans lose even more freedoms.

REGULATIONS A COMIN!

Don’t be surprised if the government start to come down on the companies that gather regular citizens together for the ability to make money off the market. See, it’s fine when the bosses up top make the money, but a whole other ball game once the masses figure it out. Because the people who rig the system don’t want their money being tampered with so Joe Blow can have it. But how do they do this without creating chaos. Now, on the other hand, someone has to take the hit for this and it may be Robinhood. Instead of addressing the wide use of these tactics of betting against the market on Wall Street you go after Robinhood. But still, even with the possible regulations, we are witnessing a cat and mouse game that won’t be stopping anytime soon.

MARRYING IN THE CULTURE

Keeping it internal.

MAKING MOM AND DAD PROUD

When you belong to a culture that is strong, a lot of people tend to want that culture to continue. So once it becomes time to date, people have this in mind. And if they marry outside the culture, they want to be with someone who has similar moral views. But, do you come from a family that want you to stay within the culture? And if you do, what do you think about them seeing you marry someone that is not in the culture? Because you never know how family feel until they express their sentiments.

GOING OUTSIDE

If you shall choose to marry someone who is not from your culture, then you are going to have to have conversations about these differences. Talk to each other about where you come from and the culture so that you can address the particulars. There may be things from the culture that you don’t understand that a conversation is needed because you might find yourself not knowing some things. You don’t want the relationship to end because of a misunderstanding from not knowing enough about the culture.

STAYING INSIDE

Choosing to stay within your group is something that most people do. Not because they are interested in anyone else. They just have a better connection with someone inside the group because it’s a smooth transition. You’re dealing with someone who you don’t have to really sit down and understand, they just get you. This is a world away from the life that people of different cultures have to work on.

MY ROUTINE WORKS FOR ME

Man Wearing Black Shorts Lifting Heavy Barbells

TUESDAY-THURSDAY-FRIDAY-SATURDAY

Since working my new job before the end of the new year, I have this new daily schedule. My workout routine now is difficult because now there is less time given my commute to work and home. Yet I still have time to get things done. My body is trying to get used to this new routine. And the reason why I say new, it’s because I have been sleeping until the early afternoon. This means my day does not starting until most people day ends. Now, the question to you is, how has your routine changed since the pandemic started up until this point?

PREPARING YOUR MEALS

The best means of making sure my health is right and exercise is to prepare my meals at home. Once the meals are done then I head off to work. This is what I eat in two separate sections. The first part of the meal I eat at the first break in my first shift. Then the next shift I eat the rest of the food.

And the nutrition is good especially when you have an active job like mine. I am working in the Amazon fulfilment center so this requires standing for long periods of time. So the exercise outside of work is a necessity when trying to work longer hours. There is even a nutritional small training session on the job of what you can eat to keep working.

WHAT DO YOU DO

When you are going about your daily schedule, how has your routine workout changed? Because since the closing of a lot of fitness centers a lot of people are not able to keep in line with their routine. I will say, you don’t want to let yourself get too out of shape. The summer months are around the corner and you want to be in tip top shape for when it’s hot outside.

THE NEW JOB MARKET

WHERE DO WE GO NOW

When workplaces were closed back in March of 2020, nobody thought that we would be entering a new year in a nation that is shutdown still. Many people have lost their jobs and even more will be forced to leave their homes in the coming months. And with that said, what will be the first step people will take once they do step back into the world. How do you rebuild your life once you have been shut out for so long? How long do you have to get on your feet and care for yourself? Life was already difficult as it is, now there is this add on struggle.

HELP WANTED

There are jobs that exist in ours society now. But when you had a consistent career, then this pandemic is a major adjustment. You may not want to work the jobs that are afforded to you at the moment. A lot of the work is low pay and it does not pay that many bills. So the lifestyle adjustment is too big for people to have to deal that is so much different than the accustomed world they are used to living. Most people have children and major expenses. My life has not be altered, but aa lot have been. It’s easy to say get a job, things are not that simplified in these times.

COMING OUT STRONGER

We see people are struggling, but you might see people come out of this stronger. You know it’s interesting how people take bad situations and make them work well. I’m not saying it is guaranteed but it could happen. With everything that has happened in our world there are new opportunities with all that has collapsed.

GET OUT, GET AIR

WALK AROUND

BREATHE PEOPLE, BREATHE

In a country where the government is forcing people to stay locked in, sometimes you have to step outside and take in the fresh air. Because when you are not outside moving around, you run the risk of getting sicker. Not from Covid-19, but from cold flu and improper blood flow from remaining idle. Humans are not meant to be cooped-up in the house all day, not to mention an entire year. So what are some safe ways to do so because then again, we are in the middle of a pandemic?

To breathe, we do not only need air and lungs, we need freedom.

Mehmet Ildan

STEP OUTSIDE WITH SAFETY

Yes, we are in a pandemic, but that does not mean we have to always stay inside. We can also poke our heads out the window every now and then. Do it and be safe of course, yet do it nonetheless. For me, I like to go for a run and lift weights at the gym. So to all my fellow humans out there, mask up and get some fresh air.
