Remember a few days back I was so upset. Prime example, I forgot to not expect anything. I can't blame it all on the paper. It's the name of the game. Like KJ says, people will only take advantage of you if you allow them to.
Today I was called into the editor's office, It seems some jobs in the newsroom are on the line. Not enough money coming in to satisfy the bottom line. But wait, I could stay at the paper if I was willing to do design work at the Air Force Academy for their once-a-week newsletter-type paper, 2 1/2 days a week, mid -week.. I could even work for the photo dept. the extra twelve hours, hmmmm. Well this was a shocker but maybe I need that change as much as anything. I am damn lucky to still have a job. Maybe a three day weekend could be worked out. Maybe a door will open. Maybe I will love it.....maybe I'll get off my ass and actually find the job that I know I am capable of doing and make some money too, now that I could get used to.
Regardless, I will pull my head out of my ass, because frankly I have no choice and no one likes a whiner. Bring it on.
