After three months freelancing and working part-time in LA County, I'm back again in the California desert, sleeping on my parents' couch.

I had several interviews and even a few second interviews, but couldn't find a full-time job and even with two jobs, I wasn't getting nearly enough hours or assignments to continue paying the rent in the LA area. My family didn't expect it to work, but two of my cousins and a few acquaintances have successfully pulled off the jobless move, so I thought I could figure it out, too.

I wish the best of luck to the two wonderful roommates I left behind and hope to join them in Los Angeles again sometime soon.

Until then, here are some of my favorite motivational songs -- because sometimes life hands you your butt on a plate and it's hard to find your own optimistic words to spur yourself on.

We Are Kings, Tall Animals

Survivor, Destiny's Child

 Me Against the World, Superchick

Stand Up, Superchick

Super Trouper, Superchick

Dangerous Girl, Akon


Roar, Katy Perry

Katy Perry, Firework

Alicia Keys, Girl On Fire

Beyoncé, Run the World

Unbreakable, Fireflight

Defying Gravity, Wicked
