I made a painting yesterday at a place called Painting with a Twist. They walk you through the process so it’s pretty easy and pretty quick. Here is a picture of my picture, I’m pretty pleased with it.
I also had a weird dream last night. I worked in a sort of convenience store, and across the street was a tattoo parlor that was actually part of the same store. That is, they shared sales staff. I had the fortune of working a shift in the tattoo place and I really preferred it. There was a problem in the convenience store so I went across the street to handle it, and I got stuck working there. I was so insulted. I didn’t want to be there. And every time I tried to do any task around the store, a customer would come up and do something crazy, like go behind the counter and try to work the register themselves. I was so frustrated and I didn’t want to be there. Then the owner came in, and it was RuPaul! In man clothes, so I am going to call him “him”. He was, as he seems to be, very nice but not likely to put up with nonsense. I wasn’t able to explain what was going on because I was too busy, cleaning up trash, helping someone work the microwave, that kind of thing. Then there was some kind of staff meeting that I wasn’t able to attend. I just remember being angry and frustrated the whole dream.
So what is this about? Since clearly I don’t work for RuPaul. I think it has to do with frustration in my employment, that I can’t seem to move up or do things that I find interesting. I am stuck doing work I find tedious and unrewarding. Though really I’m quite happy with the government job. So frustration and maybe inability to reach a mentor. Can’t seem to get the guidance I need to move ahead, and failing miserably at the job at hand. Sounds more like my call center experiences than my current job, actually.
It’s pretty obvious I need to do some work on this dream, and on employment.
