No More Mr. Day Job.

Well, after a little over a year (that felt like nine) working at a homeless medical clinic, I have formally quit, and no longer have gainful employment!  I’m making my dreams come true!  Well, as long as those dreams are stressful nightmares about cobbling together enough money for rent every month.  Someone pinch me!

I still have a sort-of part-time job editing stock footage of beautiful places around the world, but lately that job has been earning me about $12 a month.  And I’m still working for for free.  So why did I even count that?  If you’re wondering how I’m spending all of my newfound free time, I generally look like this:

Sometimes like this:

And even occasionally like this:

In truth I’m spending a lot more time with my daughter, which is far more grueling than any day job I’ve ever had.  Ever get into a debate with a toddler?  Their logic dances in circles, skips over reality, then suddenly becomes an earnest request for tacos.  Which is the best way to end any debate, really.

Ah tacos. Nice. Imma try that next time. I had to end mine the other day with “BECAUSE – how can something that ISN’T actually BE??!?! That doesn’t make SENSE!?”
