where is my mind

288/365



I have quite a busy week. My friend's friends are coming into town this week, so we've been planning special things we could do since they're here. Tonight is the Rehab Party at a bar. Tuesday, I want to go to the Shedd Aquarium since it's free tomorrow. Wednesday, I would like to go apple picking at a farm right here in Illinois. Thursday, my gallery! I hope my friends can make it out. It would mean the world to me. Friday, it's off to the Chicago French Market for cheap beers and Belgian Fries, mmm. Also, the full moon drum circle will be in full force, it's the last one of the year! Saturday is the only day I'm unsure of what's going on. Sunday, probably off to visit John's parents and help them paint some windows for some cash.

I'm going to have to start planning my trip to South Carolina and pick up tickets for the OK Go show. Things are looking quite bright these days Glad to be getting out more. I'm also really looking forward to getting out of the city. It's been far too long since I took a nice vacation.
where is my mind

I sometimes wonder where I will go after this lease is up. I would like to travel, but that may require me to quit my job. I can't imagine being jobless ever. I've been working for 5 years. It's all I've known. I've definitely held out on so many things because of it and I hate it for that reason.

I've been looking for some temp jobs and jobs that don't expect me to come into an office everyday. I've found a few freelance photo jobs, but who even knows if they're interested in my work. I've thought about serving jobs, but then they usually require experience. I hate that. How am I supposed to do any job if they want prior experience? Isn't that the reason why you get a job anyway? To learn and grow from that job? I feel like people are too quick to write others off. I once applied for a photo job that would have consisted of me taking photos of hotels and people who rent our their condos for those who are traveling. They shot me down because I don't have experience with shooting interior architecture or whatever bullshit reason they gave. I don't need experience when I feel like I've already mastered composition and lighting. But...I suppose this is the way the world works.
