In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Envelope Pushers.”
The last time I took a big risk I didn’t even look at it as a risk and it didn’t turn out too well.
I left my job and went on vacation, thinking that I could easily find a better job when I came back.
Then I came back and realized I would have to go to interviews and submit resumes and shit and that was asphyxiating.
Then I found out that no one wanted to hire me and then I really freaked out.
I ran out of money and everyone was like, “Dude why did you quit your job?”
And I was like, “Shit man, I don’t know. Seemed like a good idea at the time.”
Finding work is tough. Was the vacation at least any good?
Eh not really. It was unmemorable at best. Bad decision all around.
