Deadlines


I set myself a deadline, and today was the day that I was to have a new job. But here I sit in the same chair, at the same desk, at the same mental ward that I have been at for over two years.

Every day that I am here I seem closer and closer to the edge. The edge of my sanity. Working for family is not something I would advise anyone in EVER doing.

Now the work is not hard. It's easy. Hell the job is the easiest job I've ever had. It is the shit I deal with on a daily basis from the man that DJ calls "his mother's brother". This guy is psycho. Just Tuesday he spit and threw things at his mother. And he is 42 years old!

He is not the only one, DJ's grandmother, that we refer to Marge Schott, because she looks like the late Cincinnati Reds owner, is the reason he is psycho. She feeds off his insanity. Neither of them are EVER wrong and they will argue until punches are literally thrown. I can not deal with that kind of emotional upheaval continually. It's enough to drive one crazy.

So I've set another deadline. Another 30 days. If I can handle it. I continue to post my resume on monsterjobs.com and follow leads that I hear about or happen to run across. 30 days. That's the deadline. Hopefully I will have more success in the next 30 days than I did in the last 30.

I've also set another deadline. One to transfer my blog host to another server. It is a little more complicated that I had hoped, but I will give myself 30 days on that too and will keep you informed on the progress.
