I am quite determined to get out of this ridiculous industry I have found myself in. I’m sick of the poncing about, racing around after clients and generally being quite over-worked and over-cynical. So when I’m in Aus I have 2 options:-
1. Spend 3 months doing what I do now at $500-$600 a day in order save some money and get some cash behind me after a month or so of arsing around- current ideas = 5 days in Singapore on the way there, 1 week with Liz in Melb, 1 week in Sydney checking it out (Liz wanna come?) and then hopefully a decision on where I shall spend the next 3 months and a job/job hunting.
2. Do random jobs – perhaps a shop? or a bar or a something until Xmas and then in Jan, spend 3 months doing a proper job and then consider my options.
Whatever happens – when I come back to the UK, I really don’t want to be in this industry. I need a new career, this is soul destroying, I can’t bear thinking about people as consumers. I don’t care about brands or web sites or the sheer pointlessness of working in an industry that doesn’t actually do anything meaningful any more. What to do? I have some ideas.
Events management, fitness/nutrition instructor, professional dominatrix, who knows?
I am so full of angst at the moment. I really need to get back to being shallower
My hair looks rubbish. What should I do with it?
