Malaise de kahunah.



I'm tired. I have also kinda decided that my new job is totally not working out... I'm thinking maybe I need to look for something a little more 9-5 ish for a while. I hate desk jobs, but this whole working till 10pm thing bites, and leaves me little if any time left for writing or cartooning.

Problem is that my primary job skill is that i'm good with people. I tend to blow this up on the resume a bit and make a big show of my "customer service skills" but the fact is, sometimes I'd like to tell a customer exactly where they can stick it. Working long hours in jobs I don't like very much does little to help this attitude. The jobs I get all involve various degrees of interaction with the public, and my practiced "game face" is starting to wear on me.

I hate to think I'm having a mid-life crisis... because that means I only live to be seventy or so.

If this post makes little sense... I apologize. I said I was tired.:)

You could try to get a job as a quality inspector and a local brew pub. Now that would be a great job!

I can certainly relate to wanting to tell some customers where to shove it :)

Maybe you could try wanting to work, that might help

Ha! Who really ever WANTS to work?!

I'm in a situation where my job might be no longer (they are closing the army base where I work). I will definitely take a pay cut. Might as well be for something I enjoy! I'm taking TV production classes and working my way into the film industry as a volunteer PA. I'm actually volunteering at the Tribeca Film Festival at the end of the month!

What do you love? Cartooning, road trips, knocking back some beers...etc. Try and get your feet in somewhere volunteering maybe, to make contacts.

I am itching to just quit here (it's not the job for me anyway) and move back into Manhattan and just be, but I have to work my way there. *sigh* it ain't easy (nor pretty).

A Million-Dollar idea-a Novel on our bachelor party exploits! Or at least a comic. Or more.
