My life has come full circle. Honestly, I hope that’s not entirely true. In 2008, I had lost my job around the same time as Chick-fil-A showed me the foor this year. I couldn’t find a job then. This year, I felt very confident that I’d rebound quick and by this point, I’d be working again. It’s not that easy. I’m just scared…and confused…and mad…and sad.
Deep down, I think I know that it’ll be okay, that my time will come. Last time, I got so down on my luck that I turned to anything that would make me feel better. I did what I could. I went through a time where I turn to religion. Not a healthy religion, but a strict, legalistic religion. I convinced myself that I could be straight. I was at my lowest. Psychologically, it was the worst thing I could ever do. It took several years to build up my confidence.
Until now. I feel so low again. I need encouragement.

When this blog was at its former glory, I had a weekly post called “Eye Candy,” where I would post pictures of men that I found attractive and wanted to share. I’m definitely wanting to keep that post alive. I’ve just changed the name of it.
Welcome to the Weekly Woof!

In 2008, I started a blog called “So Much to Deal With,” after I started one called “The Better Part of Life.” “So Much to Deal With” was my personal blog, and “The Better Part of Life” was my creative writing blog. It was a nightmare to try and keep up with two separate blogs. So, what I did was combined the two, and called it “Joie to the Max.” I would post wonderful things like “My Own Fireside Chat,” “Hotties of the Week,” and just general things I found interesting. In 2010, I started going to a gym, and moved all my blogging efforts to “I Want to be the Biggest Loser,” a way to chronicle my weight loss journey. It went pretty good for a while, but it was never as satisfying as “Joie to the Max” was, so I just stopped.
I missed it.
So, here it is. The triumphant return of “Joie to the Max.” I’m hoping all my old viewers didn’t give up. I hope to gain some new ones.
Sigh. It’s nice to be back.
