Ok, and before I step away from the keyboard for the night, I’d like to comment on a few random things: *insert rants here*
First of all, today we launched missile attacks against targets in Afghanistan. Great, now I’m going to have to worry about nuclear holocausts instead of photo assignments. Fantastic. Thanks guys, I really appreciated it. Ok, now, I don’t object to retaliation, I think that some people have it coming. But by going about it this way, you’re only giving more fuel to their fire. Think about it. If you’re an Afghanistan citizen and you don’t care one way or another… who are you going to side with after your house is blown to bits? Odds are it won’t be us. On the same note… I found it interesting that the Taliban leaders called the missile strikes a “terrorist act”. Now, come on guys. You know as well as we do that they planned it. What did you think would happen? Did you honestly think they were going to send in Jessie Jackson to talk it out? Didn’t think so. All this leads me to believe that this was the idea in the first place. That all of this was to spark their great holy war. Well guys. I hope you’re ready for the shit storm to follow… it’s going to be ugly. People are going to die. There’s no question there. The only question left is if this is going to bring us another 30 years of “cold war” after all the fighting is over. Odds are it will. Buckle up kids…
What else. Oh ya, I’m an idiot when it comes to money. Why can’t I save it like normal people? I don’t spend a lot of money, it just drips slowly from my wallet. $2 here, $4 there, that kind of thing. Setting aside everything that I “want” there are some things that I need. I “need” a newer camera, I “need” a nice tripod, and I “need” a pair of sneakers without holes in them. I can live with out this stuff, but it’s going to make my professional career a lot harder. And so, the job search continues.
On that note, lemme tell you about a little job I might just be qualified for. The SCAD radio station is looking for a “Music Director”. The MD would create the entire stations playlist, fill in for DJs, schedule shows, listen to promo stuff, talk with record companies etc. I think I’d be good at this. I really do. It only pays $200 a month, but the required time working at the station is only 5 hours a week. I don’t quite know how that works out, but I figure the job requires a little more than 5 hours a week. Still, I think that would be a fun job. I’d get to do and be involved with something I love (ie: music) and I get to flex a little muscle and get stuff done. Anyway, I’m working on applying for that (it requires an essay) and should here back in a few weeks. *fingers crossed*
Ok, I think that’s it for the night. Time for some ice cream and some sleep. Later.
