Frustrated Incorporated

So as I sit here weaving through job postings. Broke, bored, and overall feeling just great about myself I started realizing some things. I have been filling out several things that require you to name key things about a job that you want and goals you would like to achieve. It seems to me that there is no place for a creativity, art, and beauty. It's all about 1's and 0's, bottom lines, and efficiency. There is nothing wrong with that but what happens to the people that are not cold, calculating, ladder climbers? What happens to those of us who value emotion, feeling and sentiment? Don't get me wrong, I'm not some hippy douche. I know that it takes hard driven calculating people to make the whole thing work, but is this the only way? To spend every minute of your time slaving away at something you care nothing about only to steal away a few moments for your "life". That seems very sad to me. I have had more enjoyment being broke and in a band than I ever had in the ten years I made good money at AT&T. I've traveled all over this country, met great people, and seen awesome places in a band. I've made memories. Know what I seen at AT&T? WIres. Fucking wires day in and day out until you wanna poke your eyes out. Know what I made? Money with no time to do anything with it. I would love to go to work at a good job but unless there is such a thing as a job that does not suck your soul dry, than I don't know how happiness can be achieved. Sorry to complain I just sometimes feel so out of touch with everything and need to vent, and since we are supposed to be doing more on our sites here ya go he he!!!! -Jake-
