It never rains, but it pours

For the last six months or so, I've been working part-time at relatively low-brow, crappy jobs, while collecting my EI on the side.  It's been a pretty depressing endeavour, going from working a well-paying full-time government job to plodding my way through crappy low-paying office jobs in a part-time setting.  But collecting EI is even more depressing.

I'm not the type of guy that likes to sit around for too long.  I'm in constant motion, like the road runner.  Or a meth addict.  So EI - while a great social safety net - is also rather soul-sucking for a hard-working fellow such as myself. 

I've been sitting around a lot, because dropping off resumes is rarely fun: 

"hello sir, please hire me!"
"You won't stop moving!"
"Yes, as you can see, I'm a very high-energy and hard-working-"
"Are you on meth?"

I got offered a full-time position yesterday.  Starting tomorrow, I'll be working an Admin position in an office.  Not the greatest job, but hey, it's a job.  I'll also be keeping my job at Cashline for the next little bit, too - I don't wanna give up my tenure as a paid blogger, see. 

So, after six months of wishing I had full time work,  I am now working full time.  Also, weekends.  So, um, almost 60h a week. 

Also, I start dance classes with the Special Lady next week.  And I start three correspondence classes the following week.  And I've decided I need to learn how to juggle.  And I'm taking yodelling lessons, too.  (Okay, I made those last two up). 

It's a lot of work, but really, I'm excited about the whole situation.  Like I said, I like to move around a bit, and I'm pretty sure I'll be able to handle the workload (a few years back, I worked full time during a semester of school - which was brutal, but I lived).  And I shouldn't have much of a problem handling it, because I've got a secret weapon.

Starting tomorrow, I plan on taking a lot of meth.

  1. I think you do need to learn how to juggle (even better).
