For better or for worse?

I have been at this job for a couple of months now - maybe more, and yet i'm still not quite sure whether i feel any better or any worse.

These people are so seriously unpredictable it's not funny. I will walk in one day and everyone will be as nice as cherry pie and i will have a great day. The next day i will walk in and everyone is as cold as ice. And it really pees me off! I'm one of those people where you either like me or you don't and I hate having an in between. If you don't like me that's fine but just don't have anything to do with me and i will do the same. If you like me then that's great! Just don't decide to hate me for one day and bitch about me, then like me again - that ain't right.

To be paid or not to be paid, that is the question!

Such a long time since my last blog - i know, my bad!
So i have been doing some networking from some old contacts to see if they need any help during the Christmas season - generally Christmas is a great time for people like me who are struggling to get in the field because people take holidays and time off and then it is people like me who takes their job and if they like me then they might hire me for something else.
So far no replies but it is still very early days!

Feedback

The response to Sticks and Stones magazine has been really great. It was weird seeing it on the streets when i passed it the other day; it had been quite a while since something that i had helped create had been available like that.

I got an email from the facilitator telling me about the positive response we had gotten. We even got an email from a politician who totally supported it and gave us the thumbs up! And i thought all politicians were selfish a-holes - maybe i have just been proved wrong!

Now Online

A few months ago a friend of mine and I were having a coffee and i was telling her of how i was looking for more places to get published.
Well she knew of a site that were recently advertising for more writers so i got in touch.

Frustrated

This last week has been a struggle work wise.

I hate this new job. I haven't felt so isolated in a long time. It's so secular. There is a hierarchy and i came in and spoke my mind and certain people didn't like it and pushed me down because of that. My mind has been battling itself. I came in after a long absence from retail thinking all would be fine and that i would just get on with the job and everyone would be cool but it didn't happen that way

Back in the pages

FINALLY!

So i have been doing work with an Aids organisation in Sydney to launch a new magazine called Sticks and Stones magazine. This all started from my work with another popular free gay magazine where i wrote and edited storied for a fold out section which was based on the gay youth of Sydney.

What has the world become?

Five years on from September 11, the world seems to live in a climate of fear and depression. I have been noticing on television lately that nothing is ever enlightening and happy! SERIOUSLY!

Steve Irwin dies, then Peter Brock in a terrible car crash. I was just watching a program where Al Gore was speaking out about the effects of global warming and how we need action to be taken otherwise we are doomed and on Sunday I was watching a program where we needed to be wary of volcanoes erupting and killing us off! ARRGH!

Observations

Today i discovered something positive about being the new guy!

I have realised that people come to you and bitch about who they don't like, give you all the gossip on how certain people got to the top, warn you about who to steer clear of, the list goes on

In Memoriam

There are wafts of morbidness in the air tonight as news spread that Steve Irwin died today and after watching a program on him and the late Don Chipp, the founder of the Australian Democrats who passed away in late August, I can't help but start to think of the fragility of life.
In many ways, it makes me so much more determined to get out there and make those dreams happen.Life seems to be such a short journey, and in the blink of an eye a whole era can pass you by. How bittersweet.
I feel like i have wasted the last couple of years of my life. Funny me saying that, as I am only 20! Maybe not wasted, but didn't take the opportunities that were presented to me at certain times. If only i had, maybe i would be in a better position in the journalism field? But you can't 'if only' your life away can you?

Venting...

I have managed to get myself a job at a local music , DVD and accessories store through a family member of mine who has a friend who works there.
Thank god, i know! So i started off being really perky and i wanted to make friends and make an effort. This is proving harder than once thought.
I forgot the feeling you get when you first start at a new job; You know no-one, no-one is ever honest about anything, and you are so slow its not funny.
