The Unemployment Chronicles – #1 – A Nice Tall Glass Of Reality…

Profound, I know...

Profound, I know...

Since I have been laid off, I have used the past few days to ponder the world….

That and partake in some heavy drinking and pot smoking….

Now that the dust has settled and its fully sunken in…it has become increasingly clearer what lesson I have learned from all of this…

And when you consider the amount of time I spent working towards becoming a lawyer, and being committed to working in a professional corporate environment in general, its kind of like drinking a nice tall glass of reality…

I really don’t wanna do any of that shit or anything like it…

I truly hated my time at my last job and I will do anything and everything short of selling my body on Fordham Road to not have to go back!

So, so far my plan to attain freedom involves several ventures, all of which involve me continuing to work from the privacy of my own home and most importantly, for my personal benefit…

Its interesting, several years ago, the only thing I cared about career wise was a six figure salary and attaining the lifestyle that came along with it…

But when you realize that the vast majority of non-athletic professions that will pay you that kind of money in your 20’s involve longer hours than what you complained and dreaded with a 9-5…it’s a clear message that maybe your not that dude that can just work at any job no matter how miserable it makes you…

So we’ll see

Even if I have to go backwards to go forwards, I just cant see myself settling and basically signing up for 15-20 yrs of misery just to have a little more money to buy shit to try to make myself feel better…

No thanks…I’m doing this my way…like Frank…

I’m sure there are thousands of you out there in your mid-twenties who have been recently laid off as well…

My advice to you guys is to band together with us!!!!

Band of Brothers!

We need to use this time to put ourselves in the position we dreamed of while we pretended to care about the work we were doing before they laid us off…

And on that note, I welcome you all to, The Unemployment Chronicles

  1. Wait, I’m over 30 and a female…but I’m not feeling the 9-5 either, can’t I join the party? Let me know if you find a work-from-home career that can legitimately keep your bills paid with a little extra for boxed wine (I prefer that over beer, thanks) let me know! Unless it involves selling a kidney or importing prescription drugs from a 3rd world county…in those cases, nevermind.
