The Road Just Keeps Getting Longer…

Not long ago, I asked my bosses to cut down on how much I had to drive. I gave them notice that I was getting ready to go to school and was thinking of taking on another job. Well, they tend to forget rather easily. Yes, I had the day off yesterday. But that is no reason to double book me today.

When I have two runs to make, it makes my day way to long. I wanted, very much, to continue my job search. But no. Not today.

I was hoping for an email with some guidance on work-study opportunities. Right now, I would settle for the lowest position in the A&R department in any agency, management company, or label just to comply with what the State said I had to do…find a better paying job.

To top this all off, I am now expected to come up with and pay $968 to the college I had gone to over five years ago, when I fell ill, for their having to return my Pell grant at that time. Can it get any worse? Yes. I have to pay that before they will forward my transcripts to the new school I am trying to enter.

I guess we live and learn. The shorter a road we want, the longer the road seems to get. The harder one looks for what they need, the harder it is to truly find it. It is so frustrating.

    1. I am really hoping to get the job at the post office. it would be more money and get things somewhat straightened out for me. Even a simple A&R job (it’s kind of like Human Resources for musicians) would suffice because it is still a lot more than I make now.I also want to spend less time on the road and more time being able to get exercise (I walk nearly everywhere when I feel up to it, but driving takes everything out of me).

      My current job (volunteer, of course) leaves me little time for a personal life as well. When I started, I was supposed to be able to have a little say in my schedule. But, that went by the wayside along with most everything else. Call me disgruntled, but I prefer to think of myself as majorly frustrated.

      And thanks for the hugs. I needed that.
