    It Would Have Been Easier To Forgive.

    24 years ago I was supposed to be aborted. My parents made the mature decision that they were not emotionally ready to raise a child. It would have been one of those despised "convenience abortions." My mother made an appointment and went to a clinic. Because she started...

    I Could Never

    Ideas come to me at late hours of the night, I could never sit down for that many hours without my butt getting numb. I enjoy being ouside. No, I could never work a 9 to 5.

    9-5 Not For Me

    Don'T Do It Any More

    I couldn't do it anymore. I got pregnant, left on mat leave, couldn't go back. I just couldn't do it. So now I work from home, it helps, I can contribute financially, and don't have to go back to that life again. I make more now then I ever did before. It's freeing. Not having to...

    9 To 5

    I don't think I have ever had a 9 to 5 job and doubt I could I have worked most of my life on an on call basis or shift work and it is just normal to me. Ok maybe I'm not normal I think that is a setting on the clothes dryer.

    That's Why I Work In Care

    I have never enjoyed working the 9-5. Whilst I wish I had more patience to deal members of the public, I am glad that I do not have the patience because my lack lack of patience lead me to a career in care. It takes a lot of patience to work in care, I work in autism and I don't...
