What do you do?
I’ve heard that question a lot lately and I’m still becoming comfortable with the answer.
I work from home.
Isn’t that type of work reserved for traveling salesmen? Highly sought after consultants? Website designers? Stay-at-home moms or dads, like Joel on Parenthood?
I don’t fit into those categories at all, and yet, here I am sitting at my computer, working on a movie trailer and coming up with ideas on how to market my book.
It’s pretty cool knowing everything that happens each day is very much a direct result of being laid off back in March. If I were still at that job I most likely wouldn’t have pursued the book thing, I wouldn’t be dog sitting, I might still be editing the trailer, but I for sure wouldn’t have been able to go to Missouri with my brother and nephew (more here and here), or go on a trip here with 2 of my nieces, or been thinking about all the possibilities ahead of me! Of course, failing is also a possibility. Just ask my fantasy football team. I have one win and six losses. It sickens me.
I have Julio Jones, how am I losing every game?
I don’t mean to get off topic, but come on, man! When I lose to a team named “I’m Josh Gwoban” who had about 35 players on bye-week, there’s a problem. Ok, ok, I’m over it. There’s always next year.
The journey to a new and interesting future continues, thanks for reading!
