I think I've actually stated it before in my other blogs that I'm a huge fuck up of a failure. It's really my only talent (outside of, perhaps, writing if I could just do something with that) outside of being generally awesome. Seriously, when I'm bent to a task (programming, fighting, loving, really the only thing I haven't gotten badassed at while growing up or even as an adult is drawing - I consistently suck at artwork) I surprise and entertain to the extent that I'm able to assimilate and utilize knowledge and training.
Yet I find myself pigeonholed like it's not even funny. Because of my work history (despite my extensive skill set) I'm fuckin' doomed to forever be a factory worker. Not even a GOOD factory worker, but the kind that only gets minimum wage and feels lucky that the company gives 40 hours a week.
Hopefully getting this free certificate (good god THANK YOU for Worksource!) in Microsoft 2010 Office will, in the very least, open a few doors and allow my fast-typing, awesome-filing, phone-checkin' ass a chance at a nicer job. But then again this isn't even anything new, I'm sure there's plenty of other personal blogs with that exact kind of complaint, y'know?
We'll see. At this point a waiter makes more through tipping then most ground-level factory jobs. Might just switch over to THAT and just deal with hoity-toity upper crust bastards.
Hopefully they won't find this blog! Of course if they do I'll pro'lly give 'em a good ol' fashioned mug full of CURSE WORDS upon request.
On a separate note, nothing sucks harder then starting a band, especially in the fields of Heavy Metal, Hard Rock and Punk in an era where only screamo bands seem to get any kind of facetime. It's not even that hard because of the requirements, only in the drama inherent in getting everyone together, finding a jam space, ensuring everyone gets to practice and then loooong hours of practice.
On the other hand, I'm certain that it'll be worth it in the long run. In the very least after only two practice sessions (the first was for four hours, the last was roughly five) we sound way tighter, our timing is good and everything SOUNDS good...now it's just about ensuring the guitarist remembers which riff goes where. The bassist, the drummer and myself? Shit son, it's ON~! The guitarist is great though, a real talent, and I'm sure he'll get it two practices from now...for now we're just focusing on these first three songs.
In the meantime, I'm also being scouted for two other bands as a male vocalist (not that either of them are established bands...well ONE of them is, the other is this reggae band that at least needs a lyricist, but the guitarist keeps insisting on me being the vocalist for some reason. Me. In a reggae band. Huh.) in which one WANTS to become a paid band while the other one is a bit more established and actually plays at venues.
Plus they do rock, which already puts them ahead of the reggae band when it comes to my attentions!
We'll see, once again. Never turn any avenue of exposure or experience down, y'knowwhatImean?
I dunno. It seems exciting, it seems like I might be successful or will become so...but right now I'm not. It's like I've said before, when I get slapped down I get back up again and keep goin'. If I fall, I simply roll and get to my feet...but in the back of my mind, after the crisis has been dealt with or I've had to do what I've had to do, I always worry about the next time I fail. Will I get up as fast then?
We'll...see. I reckon.
As far as I know, I'll simply deal with it as it comes.
Anyway, I'll catch y'all around, eh? Not a lot to post about this time around, but next time I'll post up some good stuff. OH, also expect a new review from my Partner-In-Crime concerning another restaurant she stumbled across and then wallowed in loathing for. Also, if you're paying attention to your Google Reader or following me or my RSS feeds, then you know I've got a new Soothe posted, new MFM up, and also a whole new Netflix This! posted and up.
'Til next time, y'all!
P.S. - Expect a "Hey, check this blog out" post next time. Yer never gonna guess who~!
Personal blog filled with fun and frivolity aplenty~! Come get offended with the best of 'em. CURSE WORDS!
