PostSubject: Well...I may be stupid, but...   Thu Jun 03, 2010 9:37 am

This contract job that I'm working is scheduled to end in a couple months...in the time I've been there I've come to the conclusion that I DON'T WANT a full-time job with them, at least not in this position I'm doing. I dislike it that much.

The stress of the job has gone from just screwing up my mental state...to now it's affecting me physically. I end up dreaming about work...can't get the shit outta my head...it's driving me batshit.

So. The beauty of a contract position is that "at any time either party can decide to terminate the agreement", thus I've decided to terminate the agreement.

Let the job hunt begin.

If you have that kind of freedom then I say it was a good decision. When you have no strings attached, you should take advantage of it!

Well, I figure since I'm single and since my only dependant is a cat...that I can take the risk one more time.

Don't be surprised when I start selling CDs for food. lol!

I wanna stop cleaning toilets for a living but that's all there is to do in this place and my wife loves it here as do I except the shitty job selection. My dreams of making it in music are prolly better left dead.

Nah. Fuck that. Keep your dreams, hold onto 'em tight, we need them to survive...even if we don't completely understand why.

Take it from someone *almost* a decade older than you. What a Face

Akeldama - the sad truth of it is, even if you got into a signed band, you'd probably have to keep the toilet scrubbing job to actually have an income.

But he would mind the toilet scrubbing LESS if he had an artistic output. At least that's the way I look at it.

Nice dialog guys, it would be easier to handle scrubbing turlets if I had a music career.

Okay, I have an interview tomorrow for a Project Coordinator position at a local computer company. It's a contract assignment but pays pretty well.

Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Okay, the interview went very well. There will be second interview (I hate that crap) on Monday.

So. I'm hopeful but not counting any chickens yet.

In the meantime, if anybody trips over a couple hundred dollars they don't need, send it to my landlord.

mind fucked

Good luck on the 2nd interview!!!! That is always a good sign when they schedule a second interview.

BTW - I hate 2nd interviews too (on my Recruiting/HR end!) - make it take longer to fill positions!!!!

Cross your nuts and you'll get testicular torsion.

Here's your visual:

LOL! at your response. Nah, but in all seriousness I have a friend that got that from swimming a few years back, he said they had to...nevermind, it hurts just thinking about it.

Well, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that everything goes well with the background check...because if it does, I'll be starting a new job on Monday, making several dollars an hour more than my last contract position.

Don't worry Shawn. I won't say anything to them about those waitress murders in Arkansas that you were involved with.

I'm going to try and find something part time in the interim, plus I have to figure out a way to successfully promote my audio work so I can get some gigs.

I lined up a roomate for August, so at least that cuts my expenses in half.
