Knowing When To Say No...

The other day, I had to do something that makes my stomach twist into knots so painful that I want to vomit. I had to say no to a job offer. It's not something a poor guy like me likes to say very often, but sometimes I find it necessary. Just because a job pays, doesn't mean it is worth it.

Xmas Wishlist...

Yes, you read correctly, I am one of 'those people' who write Xmas instead of Christmas. I'm sure that with time you'll come to forgive me.

So, now that the last of the Thanksgiving leftovers have been polished off, I'm finally getting into the Xmas spirit. Well, I'm at least ready to make a list of things I want for Xmas. Those decorations can wait a few days... or years, whatever. As I said in my first post, I am still starting out and didn't have the income going in to purchase any of my own equipment. While I could have filled this list with ridiculous top-of-the-line gear, I instead opted for a list of things that are more 'bare essentials' and less 'in my dreams.' These are things that I consider to be the first steps toward doing more professional work or educational tools to improve my skills.
