Mon-doodles are eh.

Hi. Boy oh boy it's been a long life. My job has been pretty stressful lately and it leaves me wondering, why oh why am I working in finance. But, as Darladiva and I pass the new script via email back and forth, it all seems okay. This job pays my rent and (sometimes) affords me the time to work on shows at my desk. That's why, I suppose. I just can't wait to get rid of my debt so I can feel freer. Until that time I feel I have to stay in a job like this one in order to get the bills paid. I hate feeling trapped. I guess everyone feels trapped in their respective jobs at some time, right? I had quite a big problem at work on Friday and it left me feeling upset and nervous and doubtful of whether or not I even want to keep working at a "day job." I just don't feel appreciated, which is fine, really, because these people don't even know what I'm capable of. They think I'm a dumb kid who calls himself a playwright, which I don't...they do. Oy. Now, the question is whether or not I invite these people to our next show. Hmmm. I just don't know. I guess I'll just see how I feel when the time of the show is closer. Speaking of which, we should be doing an email blast something or other this week about the new show. It's coming together. "bit by bit..."

Heroes tonight, yay!

Seems like we're both feeling the same lately (as usual.)

I asked a waitress at a local LIC hotspot how much she makes, and she told me in detail and that they were desperately hiring.

I, alas, am still here.
Got the wheels turning turning nonetheless.

I hear ya'll.

Jason, we should talk about living situations. In fact, I am going to email you right now.

i am just amazed at how fast you two are putting this show together.

and yes, we all have those days and we all have them frequently. basically, everyday is one of those days. :)

it'll all work out. you'll be swell. you'll be great. whole world on a plate. seriously...whole world! think about how long that'll take to eat. so relish this time while you can! (and maybe enter some eating contests to prepare for that big plate coming your way)

oh man Jason.
Thanks for that post. I desperately am sick of my own desk job. In fact, I despise the ergonomic chair to boot.

Thanks for reminding me that this is a stepping stone for achieving what I am capable of...a standing job?

I freakin feel ya Jason. I woke up this morning in complete dread of the office. The people have no idea how much you despise the petty work they call a career.
