Goals for Upwork

August 16, 2021

Upwork is a freelance project and job website.  I’m trying to apply to specific projects because I work and go to school at the same time.  I’m also going to try to keep up with updating this blog, who knows if I can handle the whole thing? I will try though. At any rate,  I’m saying that I want to keep up with it all.  I’m working on my school situation with my English 1A class.  I’m going to show up to class online today.  We are discussing lying and when lying is necessary if ever, if at all. I’m interested in the books I have ordered. I order books from Alibris these days which works similarly to Amazon but it is way better than Amazon.

I’m feeling adequate, calm, and happy about school but not enough to push myself too much about it. I did my Greyschool 6 step meditation practice and Tibetan exercises practice.  I feel calmer and almost ready to tackle anything.  I did avoid a nasty super low this morning by eating French Toast. This week will play out a certain way with various appointments.

At any rate, I’m just saying that I feel calm.  I feel good, I feel centered.  I am going to make it through this semester. Foothill-De Anza do quarters but every other California junior college is on semesters.  I am not doing things because of a feeling of profound inadequacy today. I’m confronting my self-esteem demons.  I’m realizing I have time to get everything done.

I’m waiting around for this one book to ship to me.  I have textbooks at home for school, Lying by Sam Harris. The other book is Lying: Moral Choice in Public and Private Life.  I’m planning on doing my 8-10 hours of work a week regarding my class time. I’ve already done two this weekend I suppose.  I’m trying not to overload myself. So far, I’m doing a fine job focusing.

At any rate, my stress is perfectly managed this morning. Upwork is something I can make $500 reported a month extra.  I have a cushion, sure, but you can and are allowed to make some extra income within an income threshold.  The limit is $1200 for maintaining EBT but the ultimate limit is $2,000.  SSI is not counting my scholarship since I didn’t get any money out of it anyway due to not having a San Francisco address.  I used my San Jose address for my FASFA form. I live in San jose, duh, and I’m going to wait until I finish this class this semester to enroll in psychobiology next Winter at Foothill.

School has its advantages when you take it online.  But anyway,  I’m interested in getting my psychology associate’s next. I’m basically at San Jose State’s occupational therapy class until I make real money, that much is my decision to make here.  I’m working on the money situation, and making money off of this blog might help. Also, I’m wondering when I’ll find a real job. I have Textbroker.com and my books that I’m sending out to a literary agent until someone bites. Slowly but surely.
