excerpt from an email i received today:
"I am 23/M and I have a beginning graphic design position at the company I work for. I think I hate working for a corporation. All of the people who have been working there for a decade tell me "Get out while you still can." and warn me for all of the ways that management is/will be screwing me over. I don't like being afraid of my bosses. Stupid people make me want to leave my job, but I am afraid that I might be giving up a good thing. Then I remember that they have been there for a decade, and to say that I want to stay there means that I want to end up where they are now. These co-workers are not sports racers. I feel cornered into building a better mouse trap. As a result, I have sadly fallen victim to every get rich quick scheme known to man. Tutorials on how to flip houses, the 'Quixtar' pyramid scheme, and many other flavors of failure. I'm currently tasting the stock market and publishing a graphic novel. Both are progressing fairly well.
All of this energy spent running from a life I hate leaves me exhausted, but takes me on many adventures. I think that someday, like Edison, I will have failed enough that I will find the road that leads to success- whatever that is. Thanks for reading. We have to keep on hustling, and when we fail, we still don't suck at life. We're sports racers. We'll make it to the finish line."
i'll be performing this eve at UCB, 9:30 with Variety Shack.
