time/space continuum

i didn't get the job.

and i am really trying to remember my quip about fucking up the time/space continuum. but it is not really helping much.

i can't even land a job doing the one fucking thing i am actually qualified to do.

the one fucking thing i am qualified for, and i can't even pull that off.

oh, and i am tired, beloved non-existants. tired, and confused, and aggravated, disgruntled, and bemused.

so, i guess i will buckle down on my book, and whoring out my chapters, whilst trying to find a part-time in retail or perhaps slinging pizzas again (i am an extremely shitty waiter, or i might give that a shot), and continue being shuttle/sherpa/housekeeper.

and whining about it here.

Don't stop looking. It took me three years of looking before I landed my current gig and I'd interviewed here a year before they hired me. Stick with what you want to do and do what you have to do in the meantime. It sucks but in the end I believe it will be worth it.

well, z, i am not sure it is even what i want to do long-term, but it was definitely what i wanted to do right now. my resume is still on file with the agency, so time will tell. in the meantime, i might get a job maintaining the local golf course, which is nice cause it is full-time, but we won't need daycare because of the hours. ty.

I don't know if what I'm doing is what I want to do in the long term. Actually, I'm sure it isn't but right now it's ok.

Maintaining the golf course sounds like fun actually... and if you don't need day care to do it. Yeah.

Why not whore out your chapters? Writing is your big dream right? Get whatever job to pay the rent and that doesn't recquire overtime and write write write!
I know, easier to say than do... Bills need to be payed, right? But still, if you can do it that way, then do it.

I'm really sorry about the job.
And that's about the constructive I can be about it.

Oh ducker! Bad luck kiddo. Go for the golf course job, you wont need childcare and you can thrash out your chapters in your head as you go about your paid job!

P.S get yourself a Facebook account, send me a friend request and then hook up with all my writing contacts. Great way to network and get yourself known around the publishing arena.
