Money. It’s a bit rubbish really isn’t it?
I know money equals power and offers options but that’s the problem. If you haven’t got it, you’re a tad screwed. Wouldn’t it be nicer if we could just trade skills in exchange for other things? I’d probably be left with ‘I’ll get you past this level of Mario if you feed me for the night’ but that’d do me fine. Currently as it stands though I’m having to rely on the meagre offerings I’m getting for paid writing work (which I really do need to pursue even further) and hope that the day job gives me more hours.
The key flaw here is that the paid writing work isn’t really flowing like it was before Christmas, and work is so quiet that I keep losing out on shifts meaning I haven’t actually worked for 2 weeks! So I’m getting rather broke now after 5 months of not working due to my foot then the 6th month being far too quiet. I can’t technically complain, at least I have a roof over my head and I’ve probably bought myself too many exciting treats over the past 6 months but it is still a bit rubbish. It’s more the faint feeling of inadequacy I dislike really.
It’s not even like I’ve got big ambitions for when I do have a bit more money coming in. Currently all I’d really like to do is be able to spend £5 here or there, or be able to resubscribe to World of Warcraft for a month. That’d do.
Suppose it’ll pick up as it invariably does in a few months time but for now: money is the root of all evil…probably. Or at least over reliance on money is 😉
