Oh thank God. I thought the cable had been cut off but it’s just the batteries in the remote. Yes, the plan was to cut it off, but we had to give a month’s notice. I’ve had plenty of time to change my mind and change it back again.

Plus, it’s been well over a month and they still haven’t cut it off. This could mean:
1. Free cable! They think we’re moving and kept it on to woo the new tenants.
2. They meant a month’s notice by billing cycle.

So I may or may not have two more days of cable. Cue ominous music.

The reason I’ve been watching cable and not posting because this is what I do when big things are afoot. I hide. I don’t tell anyone. I dunno, maybe I’m worried people will think it’s stupid. Or that spilling the beans will jinx the whole thing.

EDITED:  The following section was edited because I read it back, got bored, and moaned to myself, oh Working, why can’t you just get to the bloody point?

Here’s the deal:
- I’m unemployed again and as a freelancer, this happens often.
- I’m not looking forward to the job hunt. Not at all.
- I’m getting less and less inspired as time goes on.
- I realize now that I’ve done what I came to do in this industry.
- Time to move on.
- I’m thinking the medical field, TBA.

Clean up in aisle two! I can take no more shock today.

Although, when I was about your age, I got disillusioned with the industry. I realized I had figured it out and it ain't the magic I thought it was. It's just business.

But don't be like me. That's the worst thing you could do!

You know, for so many people it's much more than just business. But I don't feel that way. For me it really is a job. An enjoyable one, true, but I can't help feeling I am capable of so much more. I need to feel the thrill of learning.

Plus, my writing is going really well these days, so I have a good creative outlet already built in.
