Decisions decisions

Its defenitely been an odd kind of day. Woke up this morning on the "wrong side of the bed". Just was not in the greatest of moods and didnt feel like dealing with the dill holes that I work with. Running late, I head up to the local gas station/mini-mart to fuel up the old shitmobile.

While waiting in line to pay for my gas, some dude in front of me decides that at the busiest hour in the morning he wants to drop $60 in various lotto tickets. This takes, and I fucking clocked it, 15 minutes!!!

Finally I get my ass to work and am blocked out of sight by the mountain of paper work on my desk. Then I sit here most of the morning droning on like a robot but thinking of other things. Ive been looking for new jobs lately. Got my degree back in October and have finally worked things out to switch into the field I studied under. But I have other thoughts.

My dad and I have been kicking the idea around of starting up our own office cleaning business. Another family memeber does it and its going very well. I also used to clean offices and carpets for various companies. And it's a business that if it flops it doesnt cost you any money, really it doesnt. Also, showed my older sister and some other people who's opinions I hold high some of the things that I have been writing in my free time. Stuff I pulled from here and other short stories like them. They all said that I should try writing something and turning it in. My sister tells me forget my job field, get something with a flexible non-stressful schedule and write on the side.

So this would fit nicely into my cleaning business. But I am a hesitant person as well. When it comes to making money, I like stability. I dont like having to sit around and guess when its coming in. Although Im starting to feel that this is my time. Im still young and without too much holding me back. "Go for it" is what I keep hearing. I think that I may start to listen to it.

This afternoon I opted to skip eating lunch, jump in my car, and just take a ride. I get outside and it is beautiful out!!! Spring finally decided to show in Western PA. Next thing I know I find myself cruising a back road, windows down, and blaring "blister in the sun" on the radio, singing horribly at the tops of my lungs (and I am a terrible singer!).

Come back to work relaxed and with a pleasant and determined smirk on my face. I think it's time to start making things happen once again.

Oh, and the above photo is the Dude's bare ass. As promised in my challenge with corezon I posted it. After kicking the idea around of showing even more, I decided not to. Gotta leave people with something to guess about right? Jeeesh!

The Dude.

Sometimes you have to say what the fuck and do what you want.
Look at it this way, you have a degree to fall back on at any time.

You sound like you sorta need to be your own boss right now, and be in charge of your time and space.

I wish the best no matter what you decide!!

dasher121 replies on 3/28/2006 8:30 am:
thanks, and you are right, I have things to fall back on. Might as well harness the unknown and see what happens.

wow. i am going through something similar right now. i'm looking at writing career options, which is far from what i do now, and i also have a very low cost low risk business idea that would hopefully afford me time to write. i freaked a bit when i read you are in a similar situation. let's do it. i figure it's one of those things where if we look for barriers, we will find them instead of finding joy and success? good luck, & keep me posted. . .

dasher121 replies on 3/28/2006 8:33 am:
Very cool Thanks for sharing that also. I like your train of thought on this. And you are VERY correct there, dont look for barriers and you will not find them. I will keep you posted, you do the same.

Ok...for the writing....look into free lancing. It's something you can do in your spare time and get a feel for writing for a living. It's something I've begun looking into, to get more practice at it, and actually get paid for something I like to do....not HAVE to do, ya know?

Also, I have a site on an agency who takes on new authors. You have to submit works to them before they take you...BUT, it's nice to file away for when you do have something. It's what keeps me pounding away at my nonsense.

Oh.....and before I forget...NICE ASS! *whistles*


dasher121 replies on 3/28/2006 8:34 am:
hahaha, making me blush for the ass shout out. That agency thing sounds pretty damn productive and cool. Ill have to get that addy off of you. Much luck in your writing also

Taking a drive always helps to clear my head so that I can try to is something I highly recommend; and it depends on my particular mood as to whether I have the music cranked up, or just quiet.

You should do that on a regular basis and hopefully you'll be able to make a well thought out decision as to what to do; you're still young enough to take chances and not have it negatively impact you with serious consequences should it fail...and you won't always wonder "if only" or "what if?"

Good luck!

dasher121 replies on 3/28/2006 8:36 am:
Yes, I find myself doing that a lot. And the same, either with music blaring or just plain old silence. Sometimes I do my best thinking listening to classical music. Def food for the soul. Thanks for visiting, blogland will be sad to see you go.

Dude, I gotta agree. I've always thought and stated several times that I thought your writing was worthy of some real cash. I think even thought you are younger in life, you must have an incredibly old soul. You often seem to be able to be wise beyond your years.

BTW, as with everyone else, you've been holding out on us if that's your bootay.... Nice picture, enough without giving away the family secret.

dasher121 replies on 3/28/2006 8:38 am:
You know, ever since you wandered into my blog your encouragement and compliments have meant more than I could express. So a very humble thank you goes out to you miss Red. Sometimes, yes my sould does feel very old. But Im nothing special, just a regular dude who speaks his mind a bit too much, gets too personal for his own self comfort. Yet I trudge on anyway.

And yes, that is my booty hahaha. My skinny old white ass lol. And Id say that you have been holding out on us too. Very beautiful face you are showing

I say go for it. Your writing is incredible and touches on a deeper chord than most people could ever hope to touch with words alone. You have the talent and the drive to make it happen.
As to you and dad starting up the business...yes again. You should find something that makes you happy to go to work, not a job that drags on your spirit.
Do what you want and need to do to make yourself happy.

They say there are 3 kinds of people in this world..

There are folks who Wanna make things happen.
Then there are folks who Make things happen...and
then there are the ones who say What the hell happened?

Just a little food for thought.............
If you really want to be happy, nobody can stop you...

Understand how you feel; will say it's easier to make a jump like that the less payments you have riding over your head and that tends to get worse over time...that is a low overhead business and probably steady work once you build a clientele...or maybe you could start part time and not totally give up the other job yet? Or do some prn work with the other for some experience?

I have publicly answered that challenge lol [post 288419] and consider it done unless somebody cries foul, lol
