Thoughts on Work


A couple of weeks ago I was going to follow my dream... or "follow my bliss" as Daniel Franco from Project Runway seasons 1 and 2 would say - and I was going to take the first steps (tiny little baby steps) into doing what I want to do for a living.

Well, I didn't.

I chose to continue to get paid.

Hello student loans! Hello trips to Vegas! (Ok, so there was one. But there could be more! Like tomorrow!)

The job I'm doing now is not really what I want to do for the rest of my life. No way, no how. But I do realize that going into the entertainment/writing/magazine industry is well... not a very smart move. But it's not like I'm going to sit around and settle with something I'm unhappy with. I'll still try... and I'll still struggle. And I'll write things and sell them on the street. I'll sell crack in books. Who the F cares.

Plus, I know that when I meet (stalk) Tina Fey, and I say, "Hi, I'm Patty." She will say, "I love you, you can come work for me!" And then I will say, "OK Tina!" and she'll go, "Great!" and then there will be an awkward moment of silence... but then we will walk. And I'll tell her all about me, and then she'll start to tell me about her and I will cut her off and say, "Shh, I know." BFFL.

But right now, at least I'm making money. So I can pay off my loans. And I can pay my bills. And I can buy expensive makeup from Benefit and Urban Decay. And I can spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars on my upcoming dental procedures :(. And then I can go away again. And maybe, just maybe, live through a dying economy.

I've always wanted to know what living in the 30's was like!
