|06:50 am - That's good / That's bad|
I talked to Christine at the company, and she said they want to hire me back starting Monday. That's good.
But I owe money and I've got maybe half of it but it needs to be paid now. That's bad.
They're offering me more money than I was getting before. That's good.
I won't be able to do theater because of the schedule. That's bad.
I'll also be getting health and dental. That's good.
Which might be nice, because I just woke up and my blood pressure feels like it's going through the freakin roof. That's bad.
But this cup of tea is delicious. That's good.
Too bad all I got left now is caffeinated black tea. That's bad.
Abbie sure looks adorable this morning, curled up on the bed, snoozing happily. That's good.
Of course he is cause he has to rest up from a busy night rifling trashbags. That's bad.
Some joke about frogurt. That's good.

Is this the same soul-sucking job as before? 'cause I know paying rent is important and all, but that's still really bad...
It's the same stuff. Just better pay and you bet I'll be continuing to look for better opportunities, including the one several T@Fies pointed me to.
But I'm in a real tight spot right now and, well, income always trumps no income.
Hang in there. Chances are you won't have to stay there very long at all, and as soon as a better opportunity comes along you can pounce. And there will be lots of theatre projects still for you to do!
Debt is soul-sucking too. Starving and eviction is soul-sucking.
Remember: 2-10:30 leaves you some awesome prime-time for interviewing.
Apply for things. Interview. You'll miss a production, maybe two, but you wouldn't be doing great at being in productions if you and Abs were living in a paper box on the run from the long arm of the law, neither.

This stuff is so horrible. I wish we could help you out but we're almost where you are right now.
But it comes with your choice of topping!
Looks like you're aheaed 6/5 in the Good to Bad ratio. Congrats!
