The Benevolence Archives, Vol. 1 is tantalizingly close to its thousandth download. You know you want that download to be by you. It’s free everywhere but Amazon, but I’m not gonna get mad at you if you decide to throw me a whole 99 cents for it over there:
It is good that I have a minor milestone to celebrate today, because otherwise I’m slowly going nuts. I’ve said many times that I’m bad at being on vacation. I managed to survive last summer without any real difficulties, but the job stress is somehow way higher this summer than last, and I just can’t find any jobs that I think I’m qualified for and want to do. Note that I’m defining “qualified for” as “other people will think I’m qualified for,” as I know I can do dozens of jobs competently that on paper I’m not going to look qualified for. Trouble is, “trust me” doesn’t work well on a cover letter. I just met my wife for lunch a couple of hours ago and I’m pretty sure I did nothing but bitch and complain for the entire meal.
I need to find a way out of this mess.
