What am I doing?

My day consists of basically doing nothing. I just sit around all day and play video games. I don't think I've ever felt quite this unproductive and stagnant, like I'm not advancing anything toward anything. The obvious solution is to curl up in a little ball in my room somewhere. That'll make me productive. I know that the whiny posts are getting more than a little old pretty quickly, but I really don't know what I'm doing any more. When I'm not moving toward anything in any direction in any regard... The only progress I'm making is in FFXII, which is a pretty cool game, but even so... Anyway, what this translates to is that since I'm not making any progress, and am actually only making things (financially) worse...

I would really, really, really like to not have to, but I think I might have to give up camp this year. Unless something happens in the near future, that's the way it's going to be, giving up camp in favor of looking for a job that pays a bit more. Like, ~twice as much (which won't be difficult). The problem is that nobody wants to employ me for just a couple weeks, but I could find a job that would last me to the end of summer no problem. So yeah, I don't know what to do. I tried to talk about it with my father tonight, but his mind is completely elsewhere. My little brother's trial is taking up all of everybody's concentration, effort, and resources. So, I don't know what to do anymore. The therapy of camp is something I don't want to give up, but... if it's what I have to do, it's what I have to do...

I don't mean to mope, but I don't know what else to do...

You know, there are jobs that you can do over the internet (respectable ones...) and that may be an option that you'd want to look into.

Do you have friends that live somewhere else (nearby) that would put you closer to job opportunities?

You should probably switch to Shadow of the Colossus or Katamari Damacy. :)

Go talk with a temp agency. There are one and two week jobs that come up all the time. But, they usually go through a temp agency for those types of assignments rather than going through the hassle of hiring people directly.

Whatever, Playa. Dude, you should switch to World of Warcraft. It's a great addiction. :D

Happy FXII! I love that game. Hopefully you will find a better job that won't make you give up camp. That would be sad...

If you're going to be idling your time away, FFXII is the way to do it. =D I've been having Salad play through Kingdom Hearts recently, which has been quite fun.

Temp agency stuff is good - if you can do Word and Excel and such, try to find an agency that gives a proficiency exam and uses that to talk you up to employers. Manpower is the one that I had the best results with, and they're nationwide.
