First though... why is it that people who always claim to never put up with "drama" are usually the ones who cause the most of it? Food for thought...
Talked with the boss and things are moving. I can actually start seriously considering some of the apartments I've been casually glancing at online. This will be expensive, but worth it for the experience, and all the amenities that come with living there.
A few other places have contacted me as I continue to apply so I can keep my unemployment benefits going, per Ohio's stupid rules. One was WMMS in Cleveland. A great job for a great station, but, nothing against Cleveland, but after this past winter moving north is not a priority. But if they call again I will string them along just to see how much they low-ball me. That would be funny.
The other was ******* in St. Louis.
That took me by shock a bit because, well, the obvious reason, but also because I did not submit anything to them. They got my demo through somebody else in their company that I did apply to, and the job has not been advertised yet, which says to me that somebody's about to get shit-canned.
If this had been a year ago, I'd have pursued it, but for the wrong reasons. I mean St. Louis is a nice enough market but also MURDER and besides, we all know the real reason why I would have considered it, which is why it would have been another Big Mistake in my life. So I replied that I already had something lined up. Mind you, when they told me how much it paid... I was tempted. But no. I've made enough mistakes in my life.
Speaking of, it's time to correct one of them... just picked up my first bottle of Zoloft (generic name Setraline) and it's time for my first dose in over a year. Hopefully by the time I move it will be in full effect again and I won't be making the same mistake again.
