Laughing ...because you can
So here I am chilling in Sussex. It's been a few weeks since the fishing season ended and I must say...I'm itching to be back out on that boat come spring. For someone that hasn't experienced seasonal work the down time is equivalent to being spiked with caffeine and then told to sit down and be still.....and even though I am the first to relax, take the opportunity to relax, tell someone to relax or just find myself...relaxed...this is too much relaxing.
So much so that I've taken a job. I guess that statement needs some qualifying because I already said I was looking for work...but I was really looking for real meaningful work....turns out that there isn't any in Sussex...at least not right now. I have something coming up in March and the fishing starts again in April...but feb is turning into a long month already without bringing in a little cashola.
The funny thing is that at one point I turned down a similar job because I just couldn't see myself doing it 5days a week....but this one is only part time for a few hours on friday/sat. It's going to be interesting in a "are we all going crazy" way. I won't tell you what it is but needless to say you've all seen them, may have even had a conversation with one and probably thought...who does that?
Well when you are a guy who is trying to figure out the best way to move away from the lifestyle everyone else seems to be running towards...maybe getting the job that none of those people want is a good way to break the fragile grasp that this veiled reality holds on us.
Nervous? not really. Not anywhere near as nervous as the first full day on the boat...and if that's my benchmark for life...there aren't really many tings to get nervous about anymore. It's a means to an end and it will be good to get out into the community and get some contact.
Stay tuned...stay relaxed ;)
