Being Inspired By Running Russell Simmons

"Things turn out the best for those who make the best out of the way things turn out"-- Russell Simmons

Last night I watched the show Running Russell Simmons. I've been tuning in ever since it started three weeks ago. It's a little cheesy, but I like how the focus of the show is on the women.

As I've watched the show one thing has really stood out to me. That is the interns. While Simmons' interns seem to be smart, they are also a bit lazy. If I was in their position I know I could do a lot more. I'd be working extra hard just because I'd be working for one of the biggest names in the entertainment and fashion industry. This brings me to my next point.

I worked hard throughout my years in college. In fact I worked hard for my degree. Recently I realized that it's been six months since I've graduated. That means it's been six month since I haven't had classes and six months since I've been able to feel financially secure. As of now I'm broke and still applying for jobs.

One thing that I continuously struggle with is focusing on one thing at a time. That is why I love writing. Writing allows my mind to wander from topic to topic. That is also why one of my goals I set this year was to blog every day. Since writing is my passion and ultimate goal I had to figure out a way to discipline my to do it without someone giving me a topic.

However, since I don't have the official title as reporter yet and it's not as simple as applying for a reporting job, I need cash to come from somewhere else. That is why I'm setting another goal. For the past couple of months I've been submitting my resume to a minimum wage every now and then. It was something that I did just to say I did it, but lately I've realized I need one of those jobs. In fact that's my main focus now.

So the goal is to get a job somewhere (anywhere) by the Monday after Thanksgiving. This gives me a week and a half to hustle. Wish me luck.

P.S. The job search can be very depressing, but I know I'm not the only one going through this.
