Christmas Time

Merry Xmas to everyone and I hope everyone is able spend the holidays with loved ones. My Xmas is coming early for my family and me.  It will be wonderful to spend time with my parents and my two sisters and their families in Banff.  My family and I are having our Xmas early because my dad has to work over the holiday. I want to wish everyone a Merry Xmas and Happy New Year. I will do more blogs next year. Happy Holidays!

The New Year

Next year will be good year for me. I feel like I really know what I want do with my life. I know that I always say, “what if I didn't have CP” but I know now that I have to stop thinking “what if”! I’ve wanted to try to change my life for a long time. I was on a road and now I’m figuring out if this is the right path for me. I have three things that I want to do next year.  I want to get a job in web design and nothing will stop me. I also want to do more freelance work for web design and get my book publish in order to get out my story.  It is time for me to move on and show people that I have a disability and that not will not stop me from getting what I want for my life.

Job Search

After working at Edebit Global Corp. for two years, I’ve spent the last four months off because they didn’t have any work for me. I made the hard decision on Monday and I email my boss to tell her that I wanted her to let me go. It is not right for me to keep working at a company after being off for four month without work. I did not quit before now because I was waiting to see if my boss would give me more work. At first, my boss gave me time off because I was working for my twin sister and her hubby. And then I started send out resume to look for a new job when there was still no work at Edebit. I redid my web portfolio and then put an advertisement on Kijiji to see if I could get more freelance work doing websites. I still kept looking for a new job and I won't stop looking until I find one, but a little part of me is scared that I won't get another other job like Edebit. My co-worker at Edebit taught me like one of the team so I am scared if I get a new job the people won't teach me like a normal person not a girl who has a disability. I know in my heart I will get another job but it will take time to fine the right job for me. When I get it, I have to show people who I am and what I can do with my disability. I am Shawna Mattinson and I am aiming for a brighter future in web design!!!
