Corporate Suck Ass

So I'm sort of at a crossroad right now with my "career." God, I can't believe I'm old enough to have a career. Today I was offered a promotion at my job, meaning (most importantly) more money. It's not that it's a huge deal, I'm still at the bottom of the barrel, ok maybe 2nd to the bottom. Anyways, on the side (besides performing etc) I've been working my ass off with my side jobs of hairstyling out of my home and being a stylist for a photographer. I'm making pretty good money at that too. The problem is that I'm at a strange in between stage. I'm too busy to continue at this pace of basically two jobs, but I'm not quite busy enough to cut down to just one job. My eventual goal is to work out of my home and on a freelance basis so that I can not be so crazy busy and can focus more on theater and someday a family. The problem is that it can only grow so big when I don't have the time to fit everyone in. If I were available more in the day or not so exhausted at night to take on more jobs, I could expand quicker. I debated for a while on whether to take the promotion or to quit my job at Harley and find a part-time job to substitute while I build my hair bizz. In the end I decided to wait things out and tuck aside the extra money until my day comes. I'm going to take the promotion and hope it makes life at my boring office a little more tolerable and even fun while I learn new skills and hopefully go to the Sturges bike rally, see how it goes and later down the line solely work for myself. In the meantime, it means staying in corporate suck ass world when I'd much rather be my own boss and not have to be up in the mornings at 6:30am. I really am a pretty fair boss. Oh well, worst case scenario is that I hate the new job and I quit. Wish me luck!

Just thinking out loud here and out long because I'm a little high off my antibiotics and cough medicine. Oh yeah, that's another side effect of working too much...getting sick (and on my birthday no less). Whoo Hoo.
