time to whine

you know, every time I get about halfway through a really good, fairly original script, all of a sudden it turns up on television.

I’m so frustrated right now with my life I could scream.

oh wait, done that all ready.

my life sucks right now. really, really, REALLY sucks.

    • 1. I have no job
      2. I have 6 weeks to earn a certain amount of money to move because I *have* to be out of here 8/31
      3. I have very limited amount of money to tide me over until I get a job
      4. I have nowhere to live yet when I do move
      5. the constant lack of ‘professional’ validation really is depressing, and I don’t mean that in the casual way
      it may seem trifling to others, or petty in comparison to your list, but it isn’t to me. I am on a very thin sheet of ice here and contrary to popular belief, I do not enjoy it.

      • I did not mean to trivalise your plight.
        I can sympathise with having no job. I was retrenched after 8 years of working 60-hour weeks for a computer company and making them millions of dollars. My payout money was put in a credit union which went bust so I lost all my savings. I had no job and no money.
        Just hang in there. I have every confidence that you will soon gain recognition for your work.
