Truckin’ along…

April 2, 2011

This was a tough week for me. I took on a job assignment from the temp agency to do some “marketing assistant” work, which I was excited about…until I showed up at the place. I don’t want to get into details of why this place rubbed me so wrong, but I think I can sum it up with this: the guy asked me to create him a spreadsheet weighing all our options and then proceeded to hand me a pencil and ledger paper.

As I sat in stop & go traffic that evening, I was miserable. I do not want to go back to mainstream employment, I just don’t. Unfortunately, unless I start booking 3 sessions a week, win the lottery, or get swept off my feet by a man that is independently wealthy, that just isn’t going to happen.

I was talking to my parents this evening, which was nice, up until the point that I shared with my dad how well the photography was going, and then he said, “so what are you doing in the meantime to earn money?” Which pissed me off since he clearly didn’t listen to my ledger paper story. It’s true, I’m not pulling in a ton of money, and I am beyond stressed about it — nothing like living off $1.08 for three days with no food and no gas. But as hard as it’s been this past month, being back here in Denver, where I am happy, has kept me sane.

It’s been nice to spend time with my old friends and my new ones. Getting to get out and DO stuff — discover this city — has been amazing. So I am keeping my eye on the prize – the one that will get me out of this slump and I can start hitting for the fences again.

    I love, love, love your determination. It’s seriously so inspiring. :)

      Some people might call it crazy, but darn it, I refuse to give up on my dream! :)
