I give up

I should've stuck with music.


  1. You have stuck with music from what I understand- you just don't make your paycheck off of it.

    From your tone, maybe you should take a load off and play some music.

  2. Touche. Damn you and your weird ability to drag me out of a funk!

    I have stuck with music, and I don't make (much) money off of it. Had I gone into music as a career, not much would change, but I probably wouldn't be in the situation I'm in now, and I might be a generally happier person.

    Yesterday was one of those days I needed to unplug from. What possessed me to post that first I'll never know, but there it is. The short version is I was supposed to spend the next two weeks in KC with my kids, and now, because of my job, I've had to break that promise to them. Not only that, but I always swore to myself that I wouldn't be that kind of a dad, so not only am I breaking promises to my kids but to myself as well. The worst part is, I can't really blame anybody for it.

    You should always wait 24 hours before sending an angry e-mail, so likewise I waited 24 hours before deciding what to do. Unfortunately it's a lot easier to make decisions when angry. They just tend to be bad ones.

  3. Sometimes your comments would make posts themselves with a little more addition, ever notice that?

    That does suck. It's impossible to be perfect all the time. I'm sure you'll make it up to them and won't do it often (otherwise, you'll get a different job, I'm sure). Sometimes, though, shit does just happen.. and yeah, work is one of those that does.

  4. Oh, and as for getting you out of a funk, I'm one of those people that has a clear perspective for everyone else and *their* issues... I try to keep some for myself, but it's much easier medicine to give out than to take. I'm just happy to be helpful. :) Just as often I think people get put off or offended by my candor and blunt honesty- it makes me happy to know when it actually does something other than take up white space on a blog. :)

  5. Sometimes. Yep. Shouldn't be, but is. I hope so, and yes, that's kindof plan right now. Yes it is.

    I know the feeling. You are. Maybe occasionally, but mostly it's great stuff.
