I was going to write about the reservations I have for the current path I’ve been going down when it comes to making money.
I don’t have a career, I don’t have a job, I don’t even feel like I have a legitimate side hustle at this point, but I have this thing I’ve been doing to make money lately, and it’s been web and graphic design.
And holy shit, I don’t want to do it anymore. I don’t want to do it for other people anymore, where the projects are big and the stakes are high.
Turns out for me (and I’ve known this a while now but never talk about it) I know that money isn’t worth this stress.
Holy shit, I’ve had some bad luck bullshit happen to me today.
And yet, why, when I come here and see “reservation” is the WordPress daily prompt, which I have been loving lately, because it actually gets me writing, when for some reason other things don’t… all I can think about is this song.
This song, and him. That man I loved and haven’t seen in a decade, and I still can’t stop thinking about him, and I still can’t get through a day without something dragging up a random memory of him, and in this case, it’s a song we both loved.
I see the word ‘reservation’ and think of the song Central Reservation, specifically the Ben Watts ‘Then Again’ remix of Beth Orton’s song. You can watch it on the YouTube here: https://youtu.be/_kFariNYX5M
… i can still taste you on my fingers and smell you on my breath… and today is whatever i want it to mean
Time, and life, is rough.
