Miscellaneous Mental Musings of an Emerging Artist

More Hustle, Less Flow.

jobsIn the past 48 hours I have submitted applications and relevant materials to two websites that were seeking freelance writers for movie recommendations and political commentary. As I found both ads on Craigslist, there is a high chance that both are scams or data miners.

I have asked for further information from a company that claims to be from either Australia or Lithuania, depending on whether you’re reading the unsolicited email or the website, offering work-from-home opportunities on a job described only as “recruiting agents for business contacts.”

I have contacted a headhunter.

I have inquired about a job I may not have enough experience to do.

I have volunteered to be a subject in a sleep-deprivation experiment that pays $2,000 for the completion of the study.

I have found nothing worthwhile in theĀ Chicago Reader.

I have signed my termination agreement but I have not yet mailed it.

I have used a psychological cattle prod several times on the negativity gnawing at the base of my skull.

I have despaired.

I have been grateful.

I have procrastinated.

I have felt claustrophobic.

I have asked to make myself more useful.

I have been focused. I have been distracted.

I have been compensating.
