Another 16 hour workday...

 

Wish I had a job  :cisfor:

 

I'd be here complaining about it if I did, of course.

i officially quit my dishwasher job but my former boss still contacts me whenever the current washers are a no-show to see if i'll cover. and in the moment it's always like "oh sweet, i could use the $100ish i'd make from this, and also lots of free food (aka an opportunity to binge eat & feel shitty about myself for a couple of days after)". but there's this background trepidation, this sense that all i'm really doing is continuing an unhealthy relationship with this job & this city & this time, and i'm keeping myself comfortable enough that another year will go by, and i'll still be in the exact same position i am now, telling myself that eventually i'll discover a path to a better career, or i'll be recognized for something i actually want to be recognized for, or i'll be able to deadlift enough weight to feel good about myself as a human being.

 

fingers crossed that this current unemployment leads to meaningful change rather than just being part of another familiar cycle.

sometimes it's a bit concerning, it seems like all i do each day is work out & meditate & make music & spend way too much money on food, and none of these things seem like they lead anywhere, but still i feel like that's all i want to give my attention to. i want this all to lead somewhere good. i want to look back at this period many years hence & think "yeah, that was definitely the grind era. i'm glad i kept at it & didn't give up". i don't want this feeling of the walls pressing in a little closer each day, or this sense that i'm always becoming a more diminished version of myself. less to say. less potential. more remote. less emotions. calcifying.

you know, most people here are quite sympathetic to your story. but it does annoy man to witness you becoming manic and indulging in self-destructive behaviour and endless navel-gazing without trying to pursue some healthier ideas. have you tried therapy/help instead of working yourself into a dishevelled, raggedy state and endlessly self-analysing that? what about meds? you need more stability.

Crypt , earlier on I posted something mentioning that I thought it would be good if you had a support network in real life. I also posited that posting this content in this thread may not elicit the empathetic responses you might be looking for because your issues are not what most would consider "first world problems". If you do find posting here cathartic then I won't mess with that but If you're looking for serious engagement then other threads might be more suitable . I posted this then deleted it because I didn't want to be insensitive and we don't know eachother at all and was aware of the possibility that a misinterpretation of my intent might lead to further negative outcomes for you . All the best mate.

 

Look into making a personal development plan. Have the balls to actually articulate what you want out of your life in five years.. own the fact that you have wants and be prepared to feel loss when you realise that based on your current path , you'll never achieve those things . Identify what's stopping you from achieving that. Put in place objective strategies to navigate those barriers. Choose your destiny and all that shit

How about you make a bartender crash course and work abroad for a little bit? Maybe in Europe. You can make a lot of money with a bartender certificate in Switzerland and it's quick to get. And I've heard that some EU countries even offer financial support in education even to non-EU foreigners if they have worked in a similar field before so maybe you could even study gastronomy and tourism at some university with help of government money if that would be something you are into. Just a very vague and maybe naive idea of how you could pursue a career without having tons of money to invest beforehand. Sorry for my meandering ideas and if that's nothing you wanna do

I don't want to take this out of the larger context as I don't think from what you've said that you're ignoring the larger context...but the wording here is perhaps suggestive of a conscious or subconscious perspective of things happening to you, whereas of course that is sometimes part (or even a large part) of life in general, I would posit that much of what you're relating ITT is in your hands. So if you want a meaningful change to come of things, it's going to be mostly (or all) on you and your own habits. If things are falling into cycles and you don't want that, do something to break the cycle, do something different. Positive, of course, or at least not negative. Or of course, tell me fuck off and mind my own business.

SFWP: still can't decide on how to release some music and I just keep recording more thinking maybe I just need some different tracks to glue together others into a bigger album and maybe that's working? but so far it seems like i'm just compounding the original issue of having lots of music with no plan on how to release any of it

Auxien do you field test the tunes with your mates? Maybe get some feedback from your friends about which ones should make the cut ? I don't know... sometimes bringing in a group of externals just confuses things more though ? What's wrong with releasing music as EPs like you currently are ?

Lol well I don't have any mates at all (SFWP) these days, and honestly I doubt I'd trust anyone's opinions for the most part...could certainly confuse things anyway. Nothing wrong with doing the EPs thing, I'm just thinking some of this feels more significant or would work better as an album? Who knows though, I'm just whining really. I'll probably figure out something to put out soon one way or another.

My local airport closed just as our plane was landing, and now I'm stuck in an airplane on an airstrip outside another city awaiting a solution. The air-conditioning turned off and the airplane is packed to the gills. Yay for environmentally unsound travel!

 Do you have a twist drill with a really small head? You can drill a hole into the broken headphone jack tip and then either pull it out with the drill or if that doesn't work screw a small screw into the hole and then pull it out using the screw
