Kyera Cover

She's the token Asian face on the cover of the multicultural brochure we hand out at Orlando World Outreach Center.

A Page from the Nanny Diary

As I wrestle with thoughts on moving yet again, I took on a babysitting gig yesterday. Out of the forty-something job applications I have submitted, ranging in varying levels of... experience, I finally found something that hired me on the spot - nanny for a day.

My body still aches from the exertion of helping a mom take care of twin toddlers but it's a good ache. Not just from an exercise standpoint but from the perspective of forcing myself to re-evaluate why I'm hitting walls with my applications.

Forty-five and counting?

Communications Manager, Training Manager, Morning Show Host, and now - Babysitter.

I think it's time to move... Maybe.

Excuse me, while I re-strategize my job hunting...
