All of those people who get paid for doing something they enjoy should be hunted down and killed. It’s not fair that ever since I started working I’ve had to CHOOSE. Get paid, or do what you’re good at and have fun with.
When I whine about it everyone claims that it’s the same with them but that’s not possible right? They’re just saying that to make me shut up.
The creative writing jobs come with the assumption that the work is its own reward. That’s all very well, but job satisfaction don’t pay the bills. And the jobs that DO pay the bills make one so miserable that eventually I think there’ll be a psychiatric bill in there among the grocery and electric bills. It’s such a vicious circle.
