I’m so depressed. My hands hurt, my neck hurts. I’m frozen in time. If I don’t get a job soon, I’m screwed – but there are few jobs, and the ones for which I’m suited don’t agree that my two decades of experience mean as much as the abilities of an English major fresh out of college.
But the “motivational” talk I’m listening to right now tells me to fall in love with what I need to do and I Can Make It Happen! He says you can simply become an (unpaid) intern and suddenly You’re In The Movie Business! Or The Music Business! And you have The Work You Love! And it all Flows From There!
Obviously, there’s something I’m not doing right.
