Today, I must tell one job I am going to stick to another job instead. I went from having little to no options, to having three (if you include the bartending gig as well). Now, I must decide what to do.
The place I started working yesterday was awesome. They’re professional, they’re nice, they’re happy, it’s organized, and I have a view from the 21st floor. What more can one ask for really? Sure, it would be nice to design advertisements for Puma, posters for new movies, brochures for Apple and Adobe, and logos for large corporations. But I’m starting to realize
– yes, at age 31 – certain dreams aren’t ever gonna come true. And so I have decided the second best thing to designing what I consider to be the most creative and invigorating of projects is to be happy. And I think this place will make me happy.
I’m going to stick it out and hope there is a fulltime job at the end of this rainbow. They work on a contract basis with everyone at first. The VP told me the percentage of people who aren’t hired after that initial contract is up, is less than 5%. That gives me hope. I might be employed, sweet Internet. And that’s probably the last you’ll hear me talk about this job. It’s unprofessional for me to discuss it.
Today, after I get off, a bunch of us are heading over to FINALLY see the Tim Hawkinson exhibit at the Whitney. When Nico was in town a couple of months ago, she saw it and told us we must go. Finally, we’re going to do that. After that, I think it’s dinner and then (if I can convince him to) Toby joe and I might see a movie. We’ll see. I only just now decided that.
We saw The Interpreter on Sunday and loved it. I highly recommend seeing it before the TV ads totally take away from everything that’s suspenseful and wonderful about it.
This weekend is picture-taking weekend. Come Monday, Toby and i will have numerous new pictures to post all over the Internet. I can’t hardly wait.
From where I am looking, life is pretty damn wonderful. The last time I said that, something horrible happen. Please, just let it be good for a while.
