So I'm looking for a new job, and let me say, they are all a bunch of fuckers. Why do I need 5+ years of proofreading experience? The "proof" should be in how well I read. Fucking idiots. I proofread everything. I fucking proofread my cereal box. Unfortunately, in a few weeks, I won't even be able to afford cereal. I would apply to better jobs, but I want to attend a film program asap and I don't want to be stuck in a full-time job. I want something I can do from my computer, at odd hours. Right now I'm obsessed with making money. It is all I can think about. How to make money. How hard I'll work to do that. Someone just needs to give me the opportunity.
I just got a phone call from a film school in D.C. I applied to back when I thought I would move there to be with Kate. The lady seemed really intent on having me come in and talk to the director of the program. Something I've learned about life is that if they are recruiting you, it probably ain't that great. Most things that are worth a damn require you to do all the footwork. It's like all the editing jobs I'm applying for. Some pages or posts REALLY want you to apply, and they are selling themselves to you. Probably ain't worth it. Not saying that I haven't applied to some of these, but really. If the job is good, they are going to be very specific about who they want. My problem is that I don't usually fit the criteria.
Gaelan was visiting recently. That was fun.
I'm not really in the mood to write, but I wanted to distract myself for a moment from the monotonous drudgery of job hunting.
